Unconscious Mutterings

I forget where I first saw this, perhaps Sara at Locuasia, and I thought it was neat. It's free association, the first thing that pops into your head when you see a word. Here is the link if you want to join in. I believe new word prompts are given each week.

  1. Guest : house
  2. Impact : car
  3. Unplanned : pregnancy
  4. Tactic : crafty
  5. Delayed : annoyed
  6. Bombastic : explosive
  7. Comfort : bed
  8. Trumpet : ta-da!
  9. Joe : blow
  10. Budget : yuck

I knew I couldn't stay wordless on a Wednesday that was a day off for me. Thanks to all my American friends who acknowledged Canada's birthday.

On a totally unrelated subject, I am positively giddy that I have so much good stuff to read. From the library I still have two books, the S. Kallos, "Sing Them Home," (which I started in the tub last night) and an Edeet Ravel (title escapes me at the moment). For my non-fiction book I have started (I think this is what it's called), "Mindful Parenting" by Myla and Jon Kabat-Zinn. And when I was in the second hand bookstore this week I found Meg Wolitzer's, "The Ten Year Nap". I almost bought it two weeks ago at Chapters, but decided to wait to see if the library had it. I've read a number of her books, loved them all, the one that stands out is, "This is Your Life," which was made into a movie with Julie Kavner. Has anyone read The Ten Year Nap? I got it as vacation reading, if we decided to travel somewhere this summer, since it's a paperback and big enough for a week or ten day trip, but not so big it's onerous to carry. Love, love, love books and having so much good stuff in my pile!

I haven't read any of the books you mention in this post, but I so agree with how brilliant it is to finally have time to read to your heart's desire. I recently filled 3 bags at a library giveaway, and have copious amounts of random books waiting for me;very little excites me more. btw, your little boy is so adorable and looks a lot like my twins did 10 years ago. Good news; boys stay inlove with their mom,even through teen years; I treasure that. Happy reading.
