Life: It Goes On - September 28

Wow - September is almost over and I've hardly gotten a chance to really enjoy it! Just as I was feeling good enough to start walking again, I caught my annual nasty fall cold. Ergh! I even had to miss book club and you know how much I love my book club girls!

Big doings in Omaha this weekend - the world's, world's, second biggest rodeo was held here this weekend. If you believe everything you've ever heard about Nebraska, you're sure to think we'd all be heading there. Truth is, I don't know anyone who went. But still, it's kind of cool to have hosted it.

This Week I'm:

Listening To: Still Sarah's Key. There are some things about it that are really annoying me but I'm pretty hooked on it now. It'll take me another week or so to finish it yet.

Watching: "The Voice!" So glad it's back on and I'm thinking that Pharrell Williams and Gwen Stefani are fitting right in. Although, Gwen, girl, you know I love you but please stop focusing on the fashion.

Reading: I put aside How To Build A Girl for a bit so I could squeeze in a "banned" book during Banned Books Week. I hadn't intended to read one this year but I just couldn't let it pass unnoticed. Thought I'd pick up a quick read so I read Stephen Crane's The Red Badge of Courage. Not so quick - oh my goodness did my copy have tiny little print! But it has been challenged and it also counts for The Classics Club challenge so it's a win. Yesterday wrapped up A More Diverse Universe. I was hoping to squeeze in another book for that but with book club and review books, I only got Chef read.

Making: Yeah, nothing. The Big Guy's been pulling more than his fair share of weight in the kitchen this month! I did scrounge up the energy to make some chocolate chip cookie dough. But it took two days to work up to actually baking the cookies. This morning I threw together crock pot macaroni and cheese. A new recipe so we'll see how we like it.

Planning: Oh, who am I kidding? I'll just be happy if I can get the house back to respectable and some meals on the table this week!

Grateful for: Heating pads. I've been moving that bad boy from one achy place to another this week.

Former Nebraska star and current Kansas City Royal, Alex Gordon
Enjoying: Watching the Kansas City Royals make the baseball playoffs for the first time since 1985, even if it is as a wildcard.

Feeling: Energized. I'm ready to start walking, I'm ready to do fall cleaning, I'm ready to do fall yard work. I'm just ready to be able to do things again!

Looking forward to: My favorite indie bookstore in town is moving locations and reopens in their new spot this week. Looking forward to checking it out. Because you know I need some new books!
