It's a three-day weekend, and it's off to a good start.
After work yesterday, I got my car inspected, then stopped at the store for groceries. That was my complete list of errands for the weekend, so I was able to stay inside this entire nasty, cold, rainy day, and I'll probably stay in tomorrow and the next day, too.
Today has been a busy one. I've been at the computer almost constantly since right after breakfast, and, for once, I have something to show for it -- two new (subsidiary) blogs.
Blind Dog Running
I started setting up this blog the other day, prompted by the events detailed in last Sunday's "London Googler" post. Today, I searched out all the relevant (and some not-so-relevant) posts about Butch and copied them to the new site. (Since I don't want to eliminate one of my most frequent blog topics, I'll probably always put the Butch posts here first.) Next, I added links to other blind-dog sites, some of which were extremely helpful to me when I first knew that Butch might have to have his eyes removed.
In case you're wondering, there are no plans to have a blog dedicated to Kadi. She deserves it, I'm sure, but she's so busy running the household that I don't think she'll ever find out Butch has own site.
The Q&A-style book reviews on this new blog may not be of much help to other readers, but I think they'll help me when it comes time to cull my book collection. That's a task so daunting I never seem to be able to work it into my schedule. When I get around to it, I'll need all the tools available.
Read the reviews if you like, but please don't let my opinions have much influence over your reading decisions. There are lots of in-depth, informational book reviews online, and this isn't one of them. In fact, this isn't so much about the books as it's about my reactions to them. To paraphrase the old saying about art, "I don't know much about great literature, but I know what I like."
