Whole Day to Myself

I managed to get a little bit more of CW done yesterday than I thought. I have to admit that if it wasn't for the fact that I have an image in my head of what the end result will be I would be bored of all the whites and greys. With CC it was easier because the colours were so vibrant. Today I get to do whatever I am in the mood for. I'm going to pick up my knitting again. I'm in the mood for some bright colours.

Today I have the house to myself. It feels a little strange but I am determined to enjoy it. I have the radio up quite loud and have spent the morning reading. After this I am going to go out and get in some lunch before I decide what to do next. Possibly watch some DVDs while knitting. Or maybe some writing. I also plan to go for a long hot bubble bath.

I'm reading two books at the moment. I finally picked up "The 13 1/2 Lifes of Captain Bluebear" by Walter Moers. I have had it on my shelf for over a year and after I said the other day I had reduced my TBR pile I thought it was about time I made a start on it. I'm only 50 pages into it and I am loving it. So far everyone I know who has read it has raved about it so I didn't really expect not to enjoy it. If you like the surreal then you might like this. i'll go into more detail once I have finished it. I am also reading "The Queens Arrows" by Mercedes Lackey. I haven't read much fantasy in a while and decided I wanted to get back to it. I wanted to try an author I hadn't tried before though. When I was a member of a sci fi group (the group closed down) a few members were avid fans of Lackey and I have wanted to give her books a try ever since. I remember them saying that a Lackey newbie should start with this one. So far so good. It's more of an easy read but I wasn't really expecting anything else. Great for escapism.

Time Warden, the scene in Voyage home is one of my favourite Scotty moments too. I also thought that his scenes in Final Frontier were some of the few good parts. I liked the first series of Chocky because it followed the books so closely but the second one is probably my favourite.

Well done on CW, you will have almost finished it by the time we all start it lol. It is looking lovely. Looking forward to more updates.

Hugs xxxxxx
