This Week I'm:
Listening To: I finished Sarah Vowell's Unfamiliar Fishes on Friday and started Zadie Smith's On Beauty. While I was familiar with the title when I picked this one up, I find that I had no idea what it was about until I started listening.
Reading: Loving Tana French's In The Woods. It's particularly impressive considering it was her debut novel.
Planning: A move for Mini-him this week. He's still working to find a new place with some different friends so it looks like he'll be moving home for a short bit this week. Cuz who wouldn't want to move someone twice in a couple of weeks?
Grateful for: Time with my family - nothing better than sitting around the dinner table with my parents, a couple of my kids, my sister, my sister-in-law, and my nephew sharing good food and laughs. Actually, the one thing better would have been to have the whole family there!
Enjoying: Finally getting to meet on of the first people I befriended when I discovered bookish people on the internet! Lori (An Irreverent Escapade) and I "met" seven years ago as part of a Goodreads group. Friday night we got to meet in person (gotta love that her new guy is from Nebraska and brought her to me!)! Summer. Made!
|Friday night's Balloon & Wine Festival|
Looking forward to: Three days off this week, just because. It will make the moving easier and allow me time to head to my parents' (with Mini-me's girlfriend who volunteered to go in to help them around the house - before she even knew I had time to join her!). Two day work week? I think I can handle that!
What are you looking forward to this week?
