Bookish & Not So Bookish Thoughts
is a weekly meme hosted by Christine over at Bookishly Boisterous, where we post things that are on our minds. Head over there and check it out!
1.Hope you all had a happy holiday. I did-until I got sick, then sicker. Today is the first day I am feeling better and that I think it is due to no longer caring. Not really complaining- we did have a very good time. We took the kids into the city to once again experience what crazy is. Nothing says insane like voluntarily heading into Midtown during the holidays. We had a blast, then headed to the Village for some sanity and good food!
2.I had been on a reading tear and I am afraid I might have burnt out a bit. Before the holidays, I picked up one of my old favorites- Gone With the Wind- and didn’t finish until Monday. Then I decided to pick up another- The Lord of the Rings trilogy. I might keep going with this trend for a while and put off reviewing new books for a wile. Who knows- maybe a HP reread is next! God knows I watched enough of them this holiday- my daughter’s go to for the holidays.
3. I found a new website that I added to my bookmarks called Off the Shelf. Has anyone else seen this? Thoughts?
4. My husband and I are die hard Downton Abbey fans and were SO excited to see the new season! When I got sick, we decided to buy all previous 5 seasons and do a full rematch so we can head into the final season all caught up- up to season 3 now. Geek out is happening.
Hey- any good book suggestions for a Downton fan?
5. I am also committing to watching the last season of American Idol. We used to LOVE watching it with the kids- fun for the whole family. We have since back away but since this is it I am all in!
6 . I have gotten in shape and have a brand new pair of skis, so……no snow. Temps here over Christmas were almost 70 degrees. The Mountain we go to is trying so hard to make snow and we are heading up this weekend for the first time. So of course the forecast is for rain.
This is the most I have done in over a week. Think I need a nap.
