A dull day...

Didn't really want to get up this morning - just wanted another hour or so snuggled in bed.

Breakfast was my new favourite, Weetabix with maple syrup, but I still wanted to go back to bed.

The ride to work was uneventful, even peaceful!

The day has passed with me doing some very routine stuff, e.g. scanning a 200 page document and then OCR-ing it, or installing a load of updates where the counter went backwards - 16 minutes remaining - 20 minutes remaining...

The weather is OK, but not nice enough for me to get excited.

I have finished the book I was reading about the Northern Crusade (the Teutonic Knights battling with the Poles, Russians, etc) and am now in limbo until I get a new book - hopefully tomorrow, as I have got one on order which is released tomorrow, but I am never sure if those dates are the "in the shops" date or the "on the way to the shops" date! The new book covers the Ancient Greeks (Athens, Sparta, etc) and Alexander the Great. Should be fun!

Off home soon for dinner, some time with the wife and kids, walking the dog, bath and bed - might be able to squeeze in an hour painting some toy soldiers! I have got a bunch of cavalry for Alexander the Great's army that I started painting a few nights ago, so I will try to make some progress with them.

On the other hand, lethargy might get the better of me and confine me to the sofa!

There must be something in the air as this seems to be the way things are going for everyone these days. I'd say, go ahead and be lethargic if that's what you feel like doing tonight. Hopefully the sun and warmth will make a comeback soon and for an extended period of time.

I too have been pretty lethargic. What's up with that. Maybe it's the rainy dismal weather here. By the way what is a Weetabix?

I'm lethargic these days too. Yesterday, I was meant for studying, but somehow a 3 hour nap got a hold of me. I MADE myself get up and study. I have tests on Thursday as well as Friday this week.

At least I got a jog in today - yesterday I couldn't stomach ANY physical activity.

Your books sound fascinating! I haven't read a normal book since February. Am going into withdrawl . . . .

Lethargic is my new middle name - glad to know I'm not the only one :)

Terri - I actually got motivated to do some painting last night. I am better today, we have real warm sunshine!

Chachi - I think you are still recovering from being ill! Weetabix is a breakfast cereal - a large biscuit-like thing made of wheat flakes pressed together. I am sure there is an American equivalent. They have been around for years.

Jen - Good luck with the exams - by this time I think rest will be more beneficial than enforced revision.

Ali - You have a good excuse! You are only getting what Butterbean doesn't want!

Kiki - Hopefully I will have my new book today - movies will have to wait til the weekend, but I am sure we still have a few DVDs that we haven't watched yet.

Sitting in Silence - I would be lethargic but I haven't got the energy! Ha!

Just stopping by to mention that you might want to stop back at my last post. I have made an improvement for you. :)

I'm a little late on this one...sorry I've been so busy...but I'm here now and I wanted to say that I too was VERY lethargic yesterday (Wednesday)...there must have been something going on! Today was MUCh better!

Weetabix...I think we have something similar called Shredded Wheat, which I love. Thanks for sharing.
