Comments for A Lazy Day

Harriet at dinnerA Lazy Day: 04/07/07

The cold that Ian and I have had now for a week is wearing us down. Ian had a couple days of laryngitis but his voice is nearly back. We've both had fits of coughing and sleeplessness. Today we just couldn't face doing much of anything, although Ian did step out briefly to mail off our taxes and to get some milk and eggs.

Just before lunch I finally got the nap I've needed for days. Meanwhile Ian and the kids played upstairs. Harriet had her lunch and was napping by the time I got up. The three of us had Campbell's soup.

Outside the weather kept threatening to rain. The air smelled of ozone. There were isolated thunder showers nearby but not here.

While at home I did a lot of reading, catching up on books I'd all but finished but had a few pages left. I also worked on my BTC database. I'm going through the end of 2004 where I registered most of our books with BookCrossing.

Now that the kids are in bed, I'll be getting the eggs filled with M&Ms and hidden about the upstairs. I have 23 eggs to hide.
