    It's been a fairly unusual weekend, at least weather-wise. We got snow on Friday, but yesterday it had started melting, but since we had received about 5", we now have just a bunch of slush. Today looks to be about the same as yesterday, mid-40s and snow melt.

    I've always enjoyed reading, and I always have a book that I'm getting through. With the recent election of The One, I decided to finally pick up Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged. So far it is a very enjoyable, and very relevant, read.

    TOTD: What are you reading now? If nothing, are there any books you've been interested in, but never got around to reading?

    I woke up early and should still be sleeping. :)

    TOTD: I just put down a text book that I am reading for a work related certification. It's actually pretty interesting.

    Chilly and sunny here. Seafood lasagne for Sunday dinner this noon.

    TOTD: I've started the second volume of "The Emergence of Lincoln", by Allan Nevins (1956). It covers the period 1859-1861.

    Begrudgingly getting back to reading notes from my microbiology course. I've been slacking on this for a week now.

    It's gloomy here today. I was going to clean my fridge but I think I'll go shopping instead.



    TOTD: I just started Anne Easter Smith's new book. It does involve a Tudor (ugh) but there are enough Plantagenets to make it worth my while.:)

    TOTD: Just finished, laugh out loud, Nuclear Jellyfish by Tim Dorsey! They should make movies out of his books!

    This is not heavy reading! :D

    Overcast but nice temperature wise.

    TOTD: Currently reading "Christian Spirituallity" edited by John R. Tyson.

    I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen: not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else.
