I woke up an hour earlier than I usually do on Saturdays so I could read. I read for 47 minutes staright. I started with Of Mice and Men but got tired of it then switched. I read the first 30 pages of it yesterday so I could make sure I got into it. I hope by this time nest hour I will be done with it.

I am still in my pjs and have not eaten yet, so that is what I will be doing next. I think I'll spend some time on my popason chair reading and trying to force my cat to sit on my lap. Probably in vain though because he is NOT a lap cat. I need a lap cat when I read!

I'm allergic to horses, too! My new cat isn't a lap cat at all, and my old cat is only a lap cat if she's cold. So no cuddling for me today, either, unless I turn off the heat. ;)
