I had a great week and a busy weekend! Here is what I posted this past week:
Yup. I don’t know what happened – the week ran away with my laptop time. I got in a couple morning chats but that was it.
I thought I would have time, apparently I didn’t. To show you that I have been doing something with my time, this is what I was doing this weekend:
That’s me this past Saturday, working on my gun safety training class and permit. It was exhilarating, fun, scary, and I passed.
The two above pictures are my project today – I am making coasters for my book club. We have our Christmas Party on Tuesday and I am looking forward to hanging out with some of my favorite people.
As far as what I am reading this week, I have to finish the book club book, The Christmas List. Then I am starting:
One Sunday in the spring of 1988, a woman living on a reservation in North Dakota is attacked. The details of the crime are slow to surface as Geraldine Coutts is traumatized and reluctant to relive or reveal what happened, either to the police or to her husband, Bazil, and thirteen-year-old son, Joe. In one day, Joe’s life is irrevocably transformed. He tries to heal his mother, but she will not leave her bed and slips into an abyss of solitude. Increasingly alone, Joe finds himself thrust prematurely into an adult world for which he is ill prepared.
While his father, who is a tribal judge, endeavors to wrest justice from a situation that defies his efforts, Joe becomes frustrated with the official investigation and sets out with his trusted friends, Cappy, Zack, and Angus, to get some answers of his own. Their quest takes them first to the Round House, a sacred space and place of worship for the Ojibwe. And this is only the beginning.
I am really looking forward to this book!
A dominant force in the sport of ultrarunning, Scott Jurek is a seven-time winner of the 100-mile Western States Endurance Run and a two-time winner of the 135-mile Badwater Ultramarathon through Death Valley. Eat & Run offers an inspirational account of Jurek’s life as a runner and vegan. Regaling listeners with jaw-dropping tales of endurance, Jurek also delivers sound science and practical advice – as well as his favorite plant-based recipes.
I am enjoying this one. I love books on fitness, endurance and making it happen.
With a meeting tomorrow, Book Club on Tuesday, Student helping on Wednesday a meeting at my house on Thursday – I think this is all I am putting on my to read.
