30 Days of Photographs IV: Always

My days have turned into a blur. Each evening I scramble for a photo to post the next day. I'm always one step behind, never quite caught up. It's Day 18, and I'm still thinking about Day 4. I blame my co-host, MikeWJ. Because he's a man and as such, can always be blamed.

Please add your link at the bottom of the page, and go check out the rest of the photos.


Day 18: Always

There were a few things I could've taken a photo of today. I always want chocolate, for example. I always love the rain. I've always wanted to stop the car at that one particular field on my drive to work and take a photo of it. The field, not the car.

But because I'm ultimately lazy and don't have nearly enough time for work and thinking about the new house and taking photos for this challenge, I went the easy route today. I am always reading a book. Or several. Right now, it's four. When I finish one I don't just move on to the next three, I start another one so I'm continuously working on four at once.

That's what she said.

Beat you to it, MikeWJ.

  1. Four books at a time? What a multi-tasker. I'd get all the story lines mixed up. But then I'm old, I really liked A Thousand Splendid Suns. And I really like your pic. It's quite novel.

    I'm the same, and people wonder how I do it. Sometimes I wonder how I do it, but mostly I wonder how they don't.


    Right now I'm reading 'Dewey e Io' and a Harlequin romance in Italian, and Sabrina in English, and I need to find another English book having just finished 'Invisible'.

  3. I actually think I took the easy way out today, giving Mo a rest :)

  4. I've always been a one at a time woman except when the 2nd or 3rd is to learn something new and not just a dalliance.

  5. Yeah, I'm a one book at a time gal. Ziva, I guess you are biblioplural.

  6. Books are a girl's best friend. Wait. It's books, wine, and chocolate!


    Oh, and cheese.


    Oops.

  7. I read like you do, but I have switched to a Kindle. (I have floor to ceiling bookcases in the basement all crammed with books that I won't/can't give away. Kindle has saved my marriage.

  8. I'm the same way, except sometimes it gets so crazy that I'll stop a book and never get back to it. Never. Hmm... isn't that tomorrow's theme? Brb.

  9. Oh, I just love this Ziva! I wish I had more time to read ACTUAL books. I should probably schedule time for it.


    "It's Day 18, and I'm still thinking about Day 4." Ahahahahhaha! Me too!

  10. I'm sure you do... Perhaps you should still start small, though. Maybe something with lots of pictures.

  11. Haha, I say go for it and schedule some time for it, you'll never regret reading a really good book. ;)

  12. Never go back to it? Oh, the horror! To tell you the truth, I used to feel like I absolutely had to finish any book I started, but lately, if I don't feel it, I leave it.

  13. I have a Kindle, too, and I'm using it more and more. Some books, I still buy, though. just because I love books and how they look in my bookcases. ;)

  14. Oh my god, you just listed my three favorite things in the entire world, and then you went and ruined it all with cheese.

  15. I think I might be overindulging in dalliance. And I love it. ;)

  16. I am all for the easy way out, Babs. ;)

  17. I know, I feel the same way! How can they not? And in a way, it does help to keep the plots straight if you read books in different languages. Right now, though three of the books I'm reading are in English and only one in Swedish.

  18. Thank you, my friend. I loved A Thousand Splendid Suns, too. I have And the Mountains Echoed on my to be read list, and I can't wait to read it.

    ReplyDelete
  19. And The Mountains Echoed was excellent. I'm sure you'll enjoy it.

  20. Superb capture.... I love books.

  21. Thank you, Janine. :) Me, too.

  22. I have to read my books one at a time. As I age, I get so confused!

    You know, you're right! It does help to keep the plot straight if one or more is in a different language. I hadn't thought it through, but now you have said it, I realise it's true. Normally, I read three or four fiction and one or two non-fiction. If I am particularly busy or tired or unwell, I cut it down to four or even three books in total, but keeping one or two as fiction does the same as reading in a foreign language: it helps separate the plots and/or book contents.

  24. Always reading is a good thing. I have started two books at this time. I usually do them one at a time.

  25. Working on four at once? Damn girl you are TALENTED!!!

  26. Getting into multi-tasking, huh? :)

    ReplyDelete
  27. Ha! You're funny, Lauren. Perhaps you should try a different book? ;)

    ReplyDelete
  28. One at a time ain't bad, Boom Boom, some people don't read at all. Or so I've been told.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Haha, I was at work when I clicked that link you sneaky man!

  30. Oops Sorry. You can just tell them that it's a family photo.
