Sunday Delight: More Sunlight

Daylight saving time kicked my butt. But I love the extra sunlight.  I just need to get outside and enjoy it more.  I am really looking forward to spring cleaning this year for some reason.  I want to clean EVERYTHING and throw out as much as I can.  I might host a giveaway of books on my shelf I no longer want but I want them to go to a good house. 

Here and Now

Time: 7 am
Drinking: Water
Eating:  I think I'll make a bowl of hot oatmeal when I finish this post.
Listening To:  Zero 7 on Pandora again!  This is my go to station for the early morning hours.  Around 10am I change it up. Here is a video of the song I am listening to now. "Destiny"

Watching:  I saw +Resurrection last week and I have to say that it kinda lived up to my expectations.  I am looking forward to watching it again tonight.

My Bookish Stuff

Reading: The Aloha Quilt: An Elm Creek Quilts Novel by Jennifer Chiaverini  
(taking a break from this one to get through another book)
Wrapped in Rainbows: The Life of Zora Neale Hurston by Valerie Boyd 
(this is my book club selection for the month and it's a chunkster)
 
  Listening To:  Siddhartha by Hermann Hesse
(I have been wanting to read this for years.  I am doing the audiobook in the car to finish it.)

Next Read:  I am thinking of reading Very Valentine and Bravo Valentine by Adriana Trigiani next.  They are sitting here collecting dust too.  It seems like every year I read and review at least one book by Adriana Trigiani.  So these two will be for this year.

Fitness

Weight: Still not in the mood to find out. 
Days Worked Out: 2 days (Since my shoulder injury I have not worked out for a week or so.  I did my first work out day on Friday and dance on Thursday.  Feeling better! :) )
