Day One

So, it was mostly sunny today. But we have a lot of rain on the way, with a flood watch from midnight tonight until 6 p.m. on Saturday. Currently, it's 50˚F.

I didn't see enough movies this year, really, to make a meaningful "Best Of" list, so I'll follow my example for 2018 and post a list of what I read, instead (excluding most the nonfiction). But I'm gonna put it behind a cut:

Look Homeward, Angel by Thomas Wolfe (in progress)
The Unvanquished by William Faulkner
Absolom! Absolom! by William Faulkner
The Sound and the Fury by William Faulkner
Light in August by William Faulkner
Wild at Heart by Barry Gifford
Perdita Durango by Barry Gifford
Sailor's Holiday by Barry Gifford
Sultans of Africa by Barry Gifford
Consuelo's Kiss by Barry Gifford
Bad Day for the Leopard Man by Barry Gifford
Imagination of the Heart by Barry Gifford
The Golden Compass by Philip Pullman
The Subtle Knife by Philip Pullman
The Amber Spyglass by Philip Pullman
Zeke & Ned by Larry McMurtry and Diana Ossana
Telegraph Days by Larry McMurtry
Boone's Lick by Larry McMurtry
The Last Kind Words Saloon by Larry McMurtry
The Wandering Hill by Larry McMurtry
By Sorrow's River by Larry McMurtry
Folly and Glory by Larry McMurtry
The Shining by Stephen King (re-read)
Doctor Sleep by Stephen King
The Right Stuff by Tom Wolfe
A Confederacy of Dunces by John Kennedy Toole (re-read)
Room to Dream by David Lynch and Kristine McKenna

And...I don't think I actually had the energy for that. It has been a lousy New Year's Day. Spooky spent all day cooking, though she was too sick to be doing, and then I felt to bad to eat much of anything. I spent the afternoon dozing and watching documentaries on PBS (Cleopatra, cannabalism in the Jamestown Colony, and the Large Hadron Collider).

So, I'm gonna go lie back down.
