- My plan was to ride 60 miles this weekend, which I have already accomplished — yay me! This means that the rest of the weekend I can sit on my ass. Okay, maybe I’ll go on a short ride on Sunday. And walk a few miles. Otherwise, I’m resting. The ride was nice — hilly, of course, but the weather was beautiful, upper 60s, lower 70s, a little breezy, smelling like fall.
- I finished listening to the audio version of Mark Haddon’s The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, and can I just say that I loved this book? I won’t write a whole post on it because I think most people know what it’s about if they haven’t read it already, so I’ll just add my voice to the chorus of people who have praised it and leave it at that. The first person voice is immensely appealing, and I liked getting into the mind of an autistic character and seeing what it’s like in there. I’m definitely hunting down Haddon’s latest book, preferably on audio if I can find it.
- I finished reading Ursula Le Guin’s The Left Hand of Darkness, and can I just say that I loved this book? I really did. Thanks to those of you who recommended it; trust me — book bloggers don’t lead you wrong. More thoughts on the book later.
- I’m off to a cycling party tonight; it’s for people who raced in the Tuesday night races in my town. It should be fun — a last chance to see fellow cyclists for a while (as I don’t usually participate in group training rides with them).
- Enjoy your weekend!
