Checking in

Nothing really to say this week, just checking in to say hello!

Green Sunday was much easier yesterday, and I am definitely starting to incorporate what I've learned from it into the rest of my week. I continue to eat breakfast, read and keep silence before I even think of turning on the TV, which is a much more refreshing and grounding way to start the day.

I have also given myself permission not to finish books that are boring or silly. I have a terrible habit of feeling guilty if I don't finish a book once I start it, but life is too short to read bad books....

" is too short to read bad books." How this gave me a chuckle here just now. Every so often when my girls pick a free reading book and feel they get "stuck" with it, I let them off the hook telling them that! It's like giving them gold. I make them be disciplined when it comes to our required book list, but that's funny too, as they've never complained about those books.

Have a good week, dear one!

I've always felt free to skim books to see what I want out of them. Once in a while I'm sure I prematurely reject a book that gets better towards the end but not too often I think.

My first girlfriend was very compulsive about such things. She felt that if she started to read an author she owed it to them to read all their work! I'm serious. She did. Well, she went on to get a Ph.D. in comparative literature which makes sense, but it always seemed to me to be a waste of time. I read slowly so I know there are many, many good authors I will never get to in my lifetime. So, I must be choosy.
