From the Earth to the Moon

I really slept in late today, not getting out of bed until close to 9:30 AM–two hours after Kelly got up this morning.  I started reading Robert J. Sawyer’s Frameshift this morning, and spent much of the day reading–and enjoying it very much.  Rob has a knack for telling a good story and I’ve been trying to pay close attention to how he does it.

We went out to Target early in the afternoon to do some shopping.  It was raining and cold out, and I anticipated major crowds and trouble parking, but it turned out to be simple and easy, and not nearly as crowded as I imagined it might be.

Kelly took a long nap in the afternoon, while I read.  It was very quiet, peaceful.  Later in the afternoon, we sat around chatting, and listening to Christmas music, while the fire roared away and the cats lazed on the warm carpet in front of it.  With the nasty weather outside, it was very nice.

Kelly had never seen HBOs From the Earth to the Moon, so we watched three episodes of it late this afternoon and early evening.  She headed off to bed shortly thereafter and I stayed up, getting just about halfway through Frameshift before calling it a night.

Back to work tomorrow.
