A New Beginning

So, here I am again. Making an attempt at maintaining a daily record of my life. I have tried time and time again to keep diaries and journals, but for some reason it never works out. Maybe because I end up putting SO much pressure on myself to keep it going? Maybe because I like the idea, but I'm lazy? Who knows? Maybe this time will be different. Maybe this time I'll be lucky. Maybe this time, I'll win. :-)
Either way. I've started the ball rolling and what happens next is any one's guess.

I'm reading a fairly decent book right now by Cormac McCarthy. He wrote 'The Road' - which I loved - and as soon as I heard that he had written what's called 'The Border Trilogy', I knew I had to read it. Well, I struggled through the first book ('All The Pretty Horses') and I'm now into the second one. It's in no way connected to the first book (character-wise) but they're similar in the fact that they both involve young cowboys on a journey. In Mexico. And there's LOTS of smoking involved. It makes me want to smoke and drink whiskey while I read it. Of course, I find whiskey repulsive, and since I've quit smoking I'm no longer allowed to do that. I'll just have to live vicariously through the boozing and smoking cowboys in my book.
Don't worry...this isn't going to become a boring book blog....it's just what's on my mind at the moment, so back off.

I'm going to stop now. I have to visit the boy's room and get a cup of coffee.

Have a lovely day....oh! If anyone can guess where I came up with the name of my blog, you get special points....and a gold star for the day.
