NOTICE: (Updated March 5, 2010)

Beginning December 19, 2009, Books 'N Border Collies will be posting but only intermittently while I pursue personal goals. I plan to share some reading I'm doing, but there will be no reviews. I will, however, be sharing my exploration of vegetarian cooking and the cookbooks and websites I use to educate myself. I hope you enjoy it!

Happy Friday!

Whew! Debate season is finally over, so maybe I can get some sleep now. And get some reading done! Perhaps I can finish some challenges? The sky is the limit, right? :-)

I won't be participating in the 24 Hour Read-A-Thon, but I'll be watching the action. Good luck to everyone! I can't wait to see everyone's choices and comments! Meanwhile, I'll be finishing up my second David Sedaris book, eyeing up a couple of library choices I have next to the bed, and checking out what I have left to read to finish up the TBR Challenge. I'm also hoping to crack the 100 mark for the 100+ Book Challenge by the end of the month. So, while I'm not officially trying to read for 24 hours, I may give it shot anyway. Peter and I went to Teasource yesterday to buy a new teapot and some of my favorite oolong teas. I picked up Blue Beauty Oolong and Magnolia Oolong, so I should be good to go!

Max Update ~ He's doing really well. He's taking 1/2 a buffered aspirin every morning, and we've started adding fish oil to his food. The only time over the last few days that he's shown any stiffness or discomfort is when he's really, really tired. Skye heard that it is best if Max gets plenty of exercise, so he is keeping him busy by constantly stealing his ball and his frisbee so that Max has to chase after him.

Have a good weekend, everyone!

Lezlie, you should consider officially signing up for the read-a-thon anyway! It's more than okay to participate for only part of the 24 hours, and that way you'll have cheerleaders encouraging you for however long you read, and you'll be able to enter some great giveways!

I really look forward to reading your thoughts on the Sedaris :)

I'm not doing the Read-a-Thon, either. I can't read and watch college football at the same time.

Have fun reading even if you aren't a-thoning! I'll certainly be checking in to see if you've posted! :)

And that attention span is just like Daisy's!

Lezlie, I'm so glad that Max is doing so well, that's such good news. I have heard the fish oil is really good, good for us too. Too cute about Skye keeping him occupied.

Nymeth ~ It is really tempting to just go ahead and sign up. I could change my mind yet! :-)

Bermudaonion ~ That would be tough! I know I'm going to have trouble once my Minnesota Timberwolves officially start their season in a couple of weeks!

Andi ~ They are funny critters, aren't they? :-)

Dar ~ You should see our Catch games. I throw the frisbee to Max, Skye steals it from him once he's caught it and brings it back to me while Max runs back to starting position again to wait for the next throw. It's pretty funny to watch!
