Either getting a puppy has made me a much more relaxed person or I have just gotten lazy. Whichever, I am spending many more days of my life just reading, walking, napping, and just quietly enjoying life. Today was one of those days. Shadow and I enjoyed three long walks together today and I spent most of my afternoon finishing the novel I have been reading during the past week. I was reading The Dutch House by Ann Patchett for a book club meeting on Tuesday that I can’t attend. But I thought I should read the book anyway. It was a quick read. Enjoyable, but predictable. A nice diversion, but not really what I would consider a great read. But the end of the book did catch my attention, so I just stopped everything today and read until I finished it. It was a relaxing and delightful day. And I am ending my evening by watching the Oscars. I have seen none of the movies nominated, but a couple of them have caught my interest tonight. And the diversity of nominations and winners has been impressive. My niece, Lynn, once told me that I have least knowledge of pop culture than anyone she has ever known. I think she was right. I need to work on that.
