What's Up?

Yeah, it's been 2 months since I've posted to my blog. . . so if I had any readers, they've probably given up :)

The happy mundanity of my life continues, and I'm generally content. DH is doing well in school and Little Man is thriving in preschool and enjoying swimming lessons.

I attended a wedding Saturday that was lovely. Simple, yet meaningful and beautiful. Cheers to my friend the new bride age 45. I hope she has a wonderful marriage! It's been a long time (almost 30 years!) since we roomed together in that tiny cubicle at summer camp. Housekeeper (her) and waitress (me)! We've come a long way, baby, and supported each other through it all--skating shows, shopping, sharing the ups and downs in our lives and keeping in touch even though we've been 4 hours away from each other for many years now. She's a special person to me and I'm so glad she's found such happiness. Unexpected blessings can happen to the nicest people.

Reading lately: (Audio) VOYAGER by Diana Gabaldon, narrated by Davina Porter. yeah, it's not the NLS version, but no one besides Davina can really capture the accents of the characters and the emotions of the story. Simply marvelous. Made the trip to Sacramento and back last Saturday a pleasure.

Reading lately: (Print) The TRIPODS Trilogy by John Christopher. Just rediscovered these on my bookshelf. It's a YA science fiction trilogy from the late 60s that I remember loving as a kid. Still enjoyed it a lot. I'm also on number 4 in the ARTEMIS FOWL series: THE OPAL DECEPTION should be on its way to me shortly. Hmm, have I read anything in print lately besides YA stuff and stuff I needed to finish for book club?

To Be Read: Jeffrey Archer (for Book Club). And I need to get back on track with choosing some adult level reading material. I have several titles in mind. Or shall I be tempted into a re-read of Harry Potter in the next 23 days? Hmm. . . :)

To Do: Spend less time on the internet and more time reading and getting REAL LIFE accomplished! And, hopefully, see PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: AT WORLD'S END on Friday.
