Yes, I skipped hour nine. I did keep reading for the most part, but was interrupted several times and didn't have much to report.
Location: the Couch
Read This Hour: Salvage the Bones by Jesmyn Ward and Ellington Was Not a Street by Ntozake Shange and Kadir Nelson.
Feedback: Salvage the Bones is reeling me in. I'm feeling the pressure build in these first 50 pages or so. Ellington is a no-brainer for me because the poetry is beautiful from Shange, and Nelson is one of my favorite illustrators.
Snack Status: Still feeling a little off and weird (surely not from the run this morning?) Ate a frozen dinner (don't even know why I have it in my freezer) and had some more Vanilla Chai Tea.
General Mood: Still good. Not too fatigued. Haven't even needed a nap yet. I did have to empty the dishwasher and clean up the kitchen a bit, though. Just need to do something else with my body and brain for a few minutes.
Finished Thus Far: Redeye by Clyde Edgerton, Peacock and Other Poems by Valeria Worth, Ellington Was Not a Street by Ntozake Shange and Kadir Nelson
