When you are so lazy you can't even bother yourself to sit up while you eat, then you are too lazy.

I am being lazy in some respects and not in others. I'm foregoing housework for the moment because my tension headache has returned. It is basically the result of too much time in front of the computer, but it's a little hard to avoid the computer when your work depends on it and your primary hobby depends on it. I'm taking ibuprofen, I've had a chiropractic adjustment and massage, and now I'm trying to rest and let all that take effect. I bought and assembled a new office chair for my home office earlier this week, because I greatly suspect the real culprit is the chair I was using. Now I wait to see how long it will take for it to turn loose. Last time it was well over a week before I got relief.

To distract myself from the desk and the computer, I set about yesterday to reorganize my books. I plan to have more built in bookshelves added to my study, but that may not happen until late this year or early next year. I decided I would box up the books I don't need readily available and store them until I have enough room to have them all out on display. That led to my getting back to the task of labeling the spines of volumes that are bound with plastic combs. It's looking pretty good over there and I may actually be able to find what I'm looking for now.

Dixie continues to blossom and is our main source of quality entertainment these days, tv being the pits of late. She's a grey blur flashing through the house except when the refrigerator or pantry doors open. Then she's on the spot, ready to help me prepare kitten food. I certainly hope she levels off one of these days before she eats me out of house and home.

That's the news, such as it is. Still struggling to get my mental focus. Maybe when the heat breaks, my writer's block will break, too.
