torachan: arale from dr slump with a huge grin on her face (arale)
1. I was at work for like eleven hours and then came home and did more work and still have work to do tomorrow, because there are so many last minute things! But that's it, for two weeks I am officially Not At Work. It's going to be super weird. I've never taken off more than two days in a row, so I know I'm going to be super antsy about it.

2. I got some manga posted!

3. Chloe and Jasper were cutely cuddling today!

It's so much easier to do these posts on a regular basis when I've actually been doing some reading! XD

What are you currently reading?
Currently reading Arsenic for Tea, the second of the Wells & Wong Mysteries. I'm about halfway through with it and enjoying it just as much as the first one.

I'm also reading (though only just started) The Mayor of Castro Street, a biography of Harvey Milk by Randy Shilts. This is one I've had on my shelf for aaaaaages, so it will be good to finally get it read!

What did you recently finish reading?
I finished Their Eyes Were Watching God earlier this week. I didn't love it, but that's really no fault of the book itself; the basic story (woman finds herself and true love after two failed marriages) is just not one that really grabs me. What made it interesting was the setting. Anyway, it's definitely a classic for a reason and I'm glad I read it.

What do you think you'll read next?
Well, I'll probably finish Arsenic for Tea tomorrow or Saturday and I guess I'll probably read the third book next.

1. We went to Target this morning and among other things got Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which was only $20 (not even on sale). I'm going to be sitting on the couch a lot the next few days recovering from surgery so it will be nice to have something fun to play.

2. I got my hair cut today. I like the way my hair looks at the length it had gotten to, but it's such a pain and always sticking out weird, so it's short again now.

3. Carla made super delicious curry chicken salad for dinner.

4. Although it always makes me sad to throw away the kitties' beloved cardboard boxes, I got rid of like four of them today and the house looks much tidier (they still have like six).

5. Jasper was such a sweetie today, but sadly I didn't get any pictures of him, so here's one from the other day. I swear he's bigger than this already.
