Lakeside reading

I headed up to Buddy Attick lake in Greenbelt this morning before 10 AM and spent about 2 hours at the lakeside finishing up A Canticle For Leibowitz. What an ending! It was nice out there on the lake, not too hot. I sat out in the sun for a while before moving to the other side of the lake where I sat on a shaded bench. It was peaceful up there, no too many people, and very relaxing.

On the way home, I stopped at the grocery store to do my shopping for the week. I made some lunch when I got home and put away all of the groceries. Now it’s time for me to clean the house–something I have been putting off for a while, but something which really needed to be done. My reward, later this afternoon, is to sit out in the front yard and get started on Flowers For Algernon.
