Personal Stuff
I am surrounded by injured people recently.  My cat injured her tail and won't stop chewing on it and reopening the wound, so she has a cone collar on.  She hates it.

My husband started out with a sprained ankle and has now been diagnosed with Plantar Faciitis, so he has new shoes and stretches and splints and things.  I feel like the healthiest one in the house :)

What I read
I have been reading The Shadow of the Wind.  I tried reading it in Spanish a while ago but I couldn't make it through.  Now I know why.  The author uses very complex vocabulary that would have been difficult to wade through in a different language.  I am enjoying it more now that I am reading the book in English. 

Interesting Stuff I Found on the Internet
I have not been on the internet much.

ROW80 Goals
Round 3 of ROW80 has begun.  This round runs from July 4th to September 22nd.  I started a little late, so my number of weeks and days is a little different.  Here is my progress so far:

I am currently reading The Shadow of the Wind.  Other books I have read this round are:
Shadow of Night by Deborah Harkness

2.  Continue with my blogging schedule (7/10 weeks)
You can check out my weekly posts through the links at the beginning of this post.

I would really like to complete this goal this round but I have not begun yet.
