Morning Meanderings… Things are about to get CRAZY
Good morning! It’s a gorgeous Fall (yeah, I said the “F” word) morning here and as I sit and sip at my coffee enjoying watching the dogs play I have an underlying buzz that things are about to take off…
and this is going to be fun.
This morning I just posted out to my book club and a group of friends reminding them that this next Thursday is the kick off to our Meryl Streep Movie Club. This is where we have decided to (those who want to anyway) to watch a Meryl Streep movie a month – randomly picked and our first one will be The Deer Hunter. This movie was Meryl’s second movie released in 1978 and the trailer is super cheesy but I bet our gathering is fun. I am going to open this up as an online club as well so those who wish to follow along and join in the discussion that I will post monthly may do so. I will probably put that post up tomorrow afternoon….
Last night I stayed up late and emailed everyone who has signed up to participate in the Banned Book Week event I am hosting here and I assigned everyone their post dates and confirmed what they are doing. This is going to be a lot of fun – there are over 50 blogs signed up to participate with banned book posts, giveaways, etc… it’s not to late to sign up if you want to join in the fun.
As I am enjoying a quiet morning I know that soon I need to continue working on the book room, clean off my deck in anticipation for next weekends family gathering here, finish laundry, start cleaning up the garage, run to town for a few things I need to pick up, mail out some invites this afternoon, and maybe – maybe take a little bike ride.
Tomorrow I run in the Mud run in Bloomington Minnesota and I am a tad apprehensive. I have been so busy lately that I have not done any form of exercise in the last two weeks and this… must change. My goal is to get in 7 hours of work outs a week – some days longer than an hour to have a day or two off but I need to get in some better habits.
Reading wise, I have not picked up a book all week and once again thank goodness for audio. I am sailing along listening to PREP for banned book week, and just picked up The Chocolate War from the library, also for banned book week. Over this weekend I will finish Defending Jacob which has been very good, and Back Seat Saints.
So thats what is happening around here. I am finally going to finish writing my post for this months book club book that rated the all time low in 11 years of the Bookies. That post, will go up today
