Another lazy Sunday

We slept in until 9 AM, which was the beginning of the lazy day we had today. We seemed to linger about until nearly 1 PM before actually doing anything. (That’s not quite true. Kelly did a lot of laundry and wrote a letter of recommendation. I did a little reading.) At around 1 PM we headed out to grab a bite to eat, and then went up to Greenbelt to walk around the lake. It was cool, but pleasant. It was nearly 4 PM by the time we got back and an hour later, Kelly headed home.

I did some reading. It was my plan to work on my application to Viable Paradise, but I never got to it today. I rented The Usual Suspects from the iTunes store and watched that. This was the third time I’ve seen the movie, but the first time in quite a while. I also downloaded some music from the iTunes store, something I haven’t done much of lately.

Yesterday, I got the coolest poster in the mail, a birthday gift from kevnyc. It’s a kind of visual history of the “Race to the Moon”, an almost ideal poster for a science fiction writer, and one that will look great in my office, once it’s suitably framed. Thanks, Kevin!

Got a phone call from Michelle tonight. First time I’d talked to her in a long time. We spoke for nearly an hour and it was good to hear from her.

It’s late. I’m heading off to bed only to get up in less than 6 hours and get started on my day. I’ve got a lot of little things to do tomorrow. I guess getting a good night’s sleep is not among them.
