I did it! I watched True Grit. Well, I listened to it. That counts, right? The DVD played in the background while I worked on Saturday. I heard the properly formal, musical language, caught some of the beauty of the cinematography, and didn't see anyone hanged, or cut, or shot, or beaten. Not a bad deal.
It's definitely autumn here. The leaves aren't quite changed yet, but the nights are nice and cold and the days are clear. Two goals --Read with a Warm Treat and Read after the Chores are Done -- are ahead... I'm sure I've accomplished both sometime but not deliberately, and there should be deliberation given to a warm treat. My friend Julie's new book, The Scandalous Sisterhood of Prickwillow Place, is out tomorrow - doesn't that sound like a story that deserves a warm treat?
