Random bunch o’ lists
In a few days, I’ll be home again. Back to my usual routine. Using my real computer instead of this cranky little laptop. I might even have some coherent thoughts by the end of the week. For now, I’ll rely on the blogger’s best friend, a random bunch o’ lists:
What I’ll miss when I leave California: Family, of course. Old friends. Those gorgeous, twisted oaks on golden hills. The easy-going pace of my hometown. The coastal fog rolling over the mountains in the morning. The authentic Mexican food. The park that holds the library that started my love affair with books.
What I won’t miss: The abundance of spiders. That’s about it.
What I’ll finish reading on the plane: Mere Churchianity by Michael Spencer.
What’s waiting for me at the library back home: Let the Great World Spin by Colum McCann, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson, and How to Read Literature Like a Professor by Thomas C. Foster.
What I’m more likely to be doing than diving into those books: catching up with family and friends, line edits, and laundry.
And here’s a bonus for you, a recipe so simple that it doesn’t deserve to be called a recipe: A banana, cut in chunks, sprinkled with cinnamon, and nuked for 45 seconds, tastes like dessert. Really. Try it sometime. There, now you can’t say I never gave you any practical advice.
