You know I just wrote that question and then I realized lots of people don’t enjoy reading at all. But I’m sure most of you do – but when you aren’t reading or don’t feel like reading what are you doing instead?
Update on the Reading Slump Funk
I had really thought my reading funk was over but it just keeps lingering on. I finished two books last week and then haven’t felt the urge to pick up another and really dig in this past week. I did start reading a few pages of several books and nothing is really grabbing me right now. I’m chalking it up to hormones and crazy chronic headaches. I am however reading DARING by Elliott James – though I’m not very far in. I need to be consumed with the desire to read something, sigh….
Being sick makes almost everything feel like work
I haven’t even wanted to blog this past week either. I’m so sorry for not visiting around to everyone! I’m really hoping that I get to feeling better soon. I’m still sick on a daily basis from the pregnancy even though I’m now into my 20th week and usually the “sickness phase” stops around 12-16 weeks. I saw my doctor and she said it could last the whole pregnancy. Let’s seriously hope not! So instead of figuring out a useful post to go up tomorrow like a book review or a weekend type book haul post – I figured I’d just yammer away at ya’ll.
So I make toys and art instead…
Today I made a little crochet dress for a doll from a recent pattern book that arrived on Thursday. I also took one of my recent sad cuddly sketches and redrew it on a board so I can turn it into a yarn painting. And I watched CORALINE and am in the midst of watching SPIRITED AWAY as I type this up. (I love both of these movies so much!) Of course CORALINE was probably obvious. I think THE NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS will be next on the list.
I started counting all of the unfinished toy projects I have laying around my craft room and eeegads there are a lot of them. I really must make a point to finish one toy before starting to craft another one. Same thing with the paintings that I’ve been doing. So I’m going to make it a goal to FINISH something at least every other or every third day so that I feel like I’m making progress. Whether that’s a book, a toy, a painting. Something must be accomplished. Lets see how long my determination last. *probably just so long as it takes for me to get sick the next time I eat and end up stuck with my head over a toilet again* ahhhh but such is the growing of life *cackles madly*
