I've picked up a book I had started many moons ago: Greek Fire, Poison Arrows & Scorpion Bombs: Biological and Chemical Warfare in the Ancient World, by Adrienne Mayor. I set it down around Christmastime thanks to overwork and too many familial obligations, but now that my room is tidied up I have a pile about two and a half feet high of books to be read. Nearly all of them are reference books. The fiction gets devoured daily.
I was flipping through it and found where I left off, but I'm thinking I should start all over again, since it's been so long.
Oh, by the way, Grandma needs surgery on the arm, but they can't do it until her kidneys are functioning at a certain level and that won't be till this weekend or Monday, the nephrologist thinks. So, a couple of weird, Grandma-free days are in store. I never know what to do with myself. Laundry is a priority at the moment, though!
