Me Time

Today was an awesome day.
I sat in the sun and read.
Finished off Murder in the Multiverse by R.E. McLean.
I really enjoyed but there is physics and a lot of technical mushed in.
And have begun The Great Pockes by R.B. Taylor.
Earlier this morning my post was going to be angry.
Again I was reading and again ignorance was being displayed in all its glory.
However I was so angry that I needed a cooling off period.
If I had written then it would have been a froth of angry thoughts with little cohesion.
So I am letting it simmer.
Which left me with a hole for today’s post.
I mean what do I write about?
This morning when I was out I was sunning my back.
This afternoon I was out in my zero gravity chair reading and enjoying the cool breeze that would kick up every now and then.
Suddenly the wind picked up a little more and I was content to ignore it because the sun was hot and it was cooling me off when it felt like I am being pelted with sand.
As odd as that was I looked over to my left and…..
Before my eyes the dust began to form into a cyclone picking up green leaves only from the ground.
It moved quietly dancing along the ground and I swear I could see a shape.
Mere fancy I know.
For a moment I thought it might speak to me.
I watched as it spun around the side of the building and saw it collapse leaves falling to the ground.
I have lived here for 6 years.
And have been sitting outside for 6 years that never ever has that occurred before.
It was really cool.
Had it spoken to me I might have freaked right out or maybe I might have made a new friend.

I Have A Problem

I have always known that I have a book problem.
I must have books on hand at all times for me to read.
Wellllllllllllll…..
I have a Kindle.
Recently I went on a bit of a buying spree from my Wish List on Amazon.
Now when so many of them were $0.99 I may or may not have gone overboard in my purchasing.
I have had a lag issue with my Kindle and recently when having a chat with Amazon CS regarding an issue with my Firestick I mentioned it wanting to know if it was an issue issue or just me.
They could not figure out anything being wrong and suggested that I do a hard reboot.
Dumbass that I am I did.
I have spent the last week redownloading all my collections and books in those collections.
Finally finished today.
And realized that I did not see any of the book I had purchased.
Took me a bit (I have issues with the way they sort things but c’est la vie) but I found the books.
I am still downloading them as I sit here and write this.
And I also figured out how many books I have to download.
168.
Yes that is right 168 books to download to my Kindle.
I have had to stop and restart my Kindle a couple of times.
I also know how many unread books I have on there: 1446.
What can I say?
It is not a bad addiction to have.
