Spare time

 

I am a galley slave to pen and ink.
Honore de Balzac  (1799-1850)  French journalist and writer

My extra time this week has been spent reading short stories from Honore de Balzac who wrote the quote above.  I happened to stumble across his writings and have been devouring them every spare moment that I can find.  It's always neat to find a writer that is new to me, but obviously has been out there for quite some time.  I love the time setting of his stories and all that went with that.  I definitely will have to find a few of his 90 some novels that he had written and add them to my library.   

Well, it'sSaturday and I need to go start my day.  I'm thinking a walk, a little tennis and maybe purchase that coffee table that I saw last week.  Now where is that sunshine that I've been missing the past two rainy days?? lol

I love to get into an ancient novel every now and then.  I love the way they wrote in the late 1700's - 1800's.  We haven't had much sun here in sunny California.  Just spurts of it.  Enjoy the rest of your weekend no matter what you do.  Love the artwork you posted here.  Blessings...gloria
