Kitsnaps: Reading at Hore Abbey

Reading at Hore Abbey
Reading at Hore Abbey

Hore Abbey sits at the foot of the Rock of Cashel in Tipperary. I have several pictures of the abbey that I like very much, but this is one of my favorites: a couple of teens–maybe tourists, maybe locals, who knows!–for whom sitting down amongst the ruins with a good book or two was the best way to pass a grey afternoon.

I can’t help, looking at this picture, half imagining that they are Will Stanton and Jane Drew.

We got up at 6am today and for some reason I still thought it was a good idea to go to the zoo. I am consequently totally wrecked, and Young Indiana has been wrecked all day. I am, indeed, having a somewhat difficult time thinking, because my brain is so fried. So I shall make a list. It will probably not be a wholly inclusive list, but maybe it’ll help.

- charge e-reader
- put INFINITY KEY on e-reader
- finish reading KHAN OF MARS
- write STONE’S THROE synopsis
- sign contract, yes, the same one from the list 2 weeks ago :p
- find epub of easy pickings
- find epub/mobi of YoM, aftermath, origins

and right now

- go put ribs in the oven for dinner


- finish putting 2nd box’s worth of photos into albums
- figure out what to do with all the 20 year old correspondence also in that box
- try to re-set the cherry jam
- make the last batch of peach jam since I got more peaches although it now seems the last batch did pretty well set up perfectly :)
