Morning Meanderings…. A Night To Remember… Bookies Coronation
Good morning! I did not mean to start with that picture but half asleep this morning… I guess that is what I did and I am leaving it.
Last night was our Annual Queen Event for our Book Club. Once a year we dress in formal wear and get together for a potluck and book sharing experience. We discussed what we read this past month which was fun because for one, we do not assign a book to read as a group in July, and for two, some of us did do that book exchange last month which turned out fantastic, almost everybody loved the book that another Bookie picked out for them so that was pretty cool.
A big part of our annual event is choosing a New Queen. This is a tradition started 6 years ago now (wow!) where we dress up and all make a bid for Queen of the Bookies for one year… it’s a lot of fun, we sing, we do whatever, and then we vote. The Queen takes care of all book ties (if we can not decide on what to read next) and she decides where we will meet the next month.
She also becomes the proud owner for a year of the scepter, the crown – and the royal throne which is a toilet that I found many years ago when our local State Hospital shut down and I cleaned it up painted it, and now all past Queens have signed it.
We had a blast but it started at 6 pm and we left her house at 9:30. SO much fun! I have many more pics but got home late and need to get ready for work so will post them soon.
In other notes, I feel like I have not been around much. Summer is definitely upon us and I feel like I am flying in a hundred different directions. Tonight after work I am hoping to catch a bike ride, I think there is a chance we may be rescuing another dog (another story), I need to pack and get ready for tomorrow after work when I leave until Saturday with my friend Heidi to our cabin. And I am pretty sure I am not going to take laptop with me because we do not have internet access there anyway.
Tonight I need to sit down and get my posts written up for while I am away. I am just starting to listen to Looking For Alaska by John Green and reading The Crying Game which turns out to also be our Book Club pick for August!
Hows your July going? Big plans? Enjoying your weather? What book is in your hand right now?
