Columbus Day weekend here and I'm extending our Monday holiday from work by one day which means no work until Wednesday. I spent yesterday doing stuff that needed to be done, but nothing exciting: getting an oil change, grocery shopping, cooking/baking, and looking for my iPOD.....ugh. I recall sticking it in a tote bag on handbag, but which one?? It was about (2) weeks ago when I last saw it so I know the battery is dead, but on a positive note, I'm 95% sure I haven't lost it, just misplaced it.....so frustrating though.
I'm still reading, The Goldfinch; Donna Tartt, it's so long, but good as well - love the writing. (at the 85% point on my Kindle). I have a few reviews to write: Bellman & Black; Diane Setterfield, good, but I wish I had read this one before 13th Tale, as it left me a tad disappointed. I also just finished Fin & Lady; Catherine Schine (audio version) which I enjoyed a lot.
My next (2) reads are hefty tomes: Wally Lamb's new book: We Are Water and Amy Tan's new book, Valley of Amazement - both sound wonderful.
Today my SIL and I are heading to the outlet malls for some retail therapy while Mr. Bibliophile enjoys football. There will be a pot roast in crock pot, and the pumpkin bread I just made have made the house smell awesome. Columbus Day will be a movie - either Gravity in 3-D or Captain Phillips --Have you seen these movies yet? Tuesday is perhaps a drive, some remnants of whats left of the foliage, and then I'll be meeting my son for dinner ---we're making this monthly mom and son time - I love it.
I hope you are all having a nice weekend.
Now for .....Why I Smile A lot
