No, I'm not going to discuss the book, even behind a cut, at least not right now. Once Rob has read it I may discuss it with him but that's likely to be it. I just don't feel like it.
While attempting to take off Rob's necklace for him while he was here I ended up popping the string next the button part of the hooking mechanism. He left it here, whether by accident or on purpose, so I've attempted to fix it with the correct pattern. It looks like it has been broken at least once before on the other end because the pattern is wrong on the last few beads on that end. Anyway, the thread I used isn't the same thickness as the original as I only have regular cloths thread on hand, but it seems to be working decently, if not a little long now. If he's interested I could put a different kind of hooking mechanism on it that would be easier to put on and take off.
PS: Back is killing me today. I think it's because of the way I was laying while reading Harry Potter. A little self-massaging (yes, of my back) has helped quite a bit.
PPS: I'm undecided if I want to deal with the lawn this evening or tomorrow. I'm not sure if the ground is dry enough to deal with being walked and wheeled over repeatedly without leaving ruts behind yet. It did just rain on and off for the last week or two.
