Life: It Goes On - November 17
Earlier I enjoyed the first Saturday morning #bloggiesta chat on Twitter. It was good to get other people's perspectives on blogging and the future of blogging. I think the consensus was that bloggers really need to find what works for them and not get wrapped up in expectations.
I had the chance to pick up the audiobook for Outlander the other day for $2 but passed. It's 28 discs long and I wasn't sure that I would be able to keep track of the story if I stretched it out for so long (since I only listen when I'm driving, about an hour a day). Diana Gabaldon fans, what do you think? Should I pick it up if it's still there next time I'm at the library sale?
Here's What I'm:
Listening To: I started Anna Quindlen's Rise and Shine this week and I'm really enjoying it so far. Frankly, it was a relief to get back to my comfort zone after listening to a book about time travel.
Watching: Whatever The Big Guy wanted to watch this week (it's been a recuperation week for him) so the t.v.'s been tuned to a lot of manly things. Which means I haven't actually been watching much this week!
Reading: Mrs. Lincoln's Dressmaker for an upcoming TLC Book Tours tour.
Making: Soups - baked potato and creamy tomato basil, fried potato casserole, and hamburgers with eggs. Have you ever tried putting a sunny-side-up egg on top of a hamburger? We saw it on t.v. and decided to give it a try. So good!
Planning: On using today to do some cooking for the coming week.
Grateful for: Carmex lip balm. Seriously, it's only November and I already need it. It could be a long winter!
Loving: How much healthier my skin is looking since I started working out. What a nice surprise.
Feeling: The urge to rearrange furniture around the house. My trusty tape measure and I are starting to make The Big Guy very nervous!
Thinking: The people who drove from Alaska to be here when the new outlet mall near us opened are crazy.
Looking forward to: A quiet, hopefully productive, week.
