Due to a bus Snafu, I will be taking part in the 12PM class instead of the usual 10AM class. As such, I’ve got a couple of hours to relax and read.
I’m making progress through Aline Templeton’s Dead in the Water while enjoying a smoothie at Target.
Almost done with Dead in the Water, so I’m taking a quick break to post today’s class note(s).
Here’s what I learned:
That about sums it up. I’m a leaner. When I pull myself up tall, I lean back. D’oh. But! When I do it right, it makes a HUGE difference! So thanks to the lovely Claire for getting me straightened out (so to speak). I hit some nice pique and soutenu turns today (before completely falling apart) and realized that the overbalancing bit is what’s been hosing up my chaines, as well. So yay!
…And now back to reading.
*By which I mean, time to put some water on to boil for pasta so I can nuke some sauce I made the other day and get back to reading :D
I completed A Separate Peace and began Eminent Dogs and Dangerous Men, which I highly recommend to anyone who loves dogs. However, I succumbed to sleep at some point while still reading. Does “reading with your eyes closed” (a time – honored tradition of my Mom’s – she, too, is great at sleeping with a book on her face :D) count?
All told, I feel like I had a solid first crack at the Readathon, and it was most enjoyable. Any day spent amongst good books is a good day!
