Distracted all Week

Well, like this ancient Egyptian boat, my head has been in the clouds all week. Not only have I been trying to finish up some books I started with the read-a-thon, but I was also working long hours, going places with my twins and their father, and generally getting adjusted to a new addiction. Did you know you can download a Kindle app on your computer for free and download free books from Amazon? Well, neither did I until earlier this week. So, not only have I been reading books physically, I've also been doing so virtually.

The above photo was taken at the Air Zoo in Kalamazoo, MI within a little alcove for children. That was yesterday's outing with the twins. They enjoyed themselves immensely, especially on all the rides. I, however, found myself wishing I could have gone by myself, or with older people, to enjoy the flight simulators as well as read the interesting plaques about the older vehicles and airplanes displayed and maybe even visited some of the museum alcoves.

A week ago, on August 27th, we went to the Binder Park Zoo in Battle Creek, Michigan. Here's an interesting sight from there:

I have never seen a white peacock before and this one was nearly within touching distance. We almost had ourselves a peacock chase as one of the twins decided following the peacocks was more interesting than listening to her parents.

I know I also promised a posting on the muse, Terpsichore, but I read what I wrote about her and feel like I'm just brainstorming at this point and have nothing conclusive to post.

I also watched a very interesting and funny little video on YouTube. Click here for a taste of what I was watching.

So, readers, please be a bit more patient with me as I work out the kinks in the muse postings and enjoy the video and photos I have posted here today. For my American followers, I hope you have a great Labor Day weekend. My family is grilling out tomorrow afternoon, which will be fun for us. The grandparents came back from Florida early to escape the oncoming hurricane and decided to host a family get-together. But, it will also be a work day as I need to get the house straightened up a bit in preparation of a home visit by my children's preschool teacher anticipated for a week from Monday.

Happy Reading!
