I’m enjoying a lazy Sunday. No great thoughts, no heavy lifting, no walks, no nothing except lounging around, spending time with The Kids, a bit of reading, and obviously a bit to eat and drink now and again.
Perhaps tomorrow I’ll post my 2009 blog-year-in-review post.
Meanwhile, if you’re looking for something to do today, here are some fantastic ways to fill your afternoon with nature and science.
Circus of the Spineless #46: get your invertebrate fix with Kate’s delightful New Year’s edition.
Friday Ark #276: Steve shows us even a holiday weekend doesn’t stop all the critters from boarding the boat.
Carnival of Evolution #19: Christie Lynn puts together a mean celebration of science with a veritable horde of evolutionary enticements.
And now I’m plum tuckered out from that little bit of work. Back to my uneventful afternoon…
