What I Did On My Spring Break and other Randomness
Last week we took off for spring break and drove 11 hours to play for four days in San Diego. Wow, it was beautiful there! We got sun burned even! We experienced sailing for our first time ever and it was a blast. The kids loved the zoo... a zoo unlike any other. We also had fun experiencing "Saturday in the Park" as the song goes.... Balboa Park that it. Wow, it was hopping there. And we did the beach of course. On an overcast, windy afternoon of course! But still, it was the beach!
Anyway, we are home. I read nearly two books while gone. Finished one just now, and the other needs a few more pages to be called finished. I bought a book too. Ramona by Helen Hunt Jackson. Anyone heard of it? It takes place down there in old San Diego. It sounds very intriguing. So, that was my souvenir buying for the trip. Oh, and a little muffin cookbook too. :)
I listened to TONS of Books on the Nightstand episodes on the way home (yes it took 11 hours to get home too. Dang!) And now I'm totally excited to read The Passage which showed up in my mailbox a few weeks ago. Wow, Michael and Ann nearly hyperventilated they were so excited about this book! When THE HECK am I going to fit it in? It's HUGE!
I'm scared to death of Google Reader. All those readathon posts and all. How'd it go? Did you all have a blast? Did you skip it this year, or read a ton? If you read along, comment with the BEST book you read during the readathon. Anyway, I'm going to try and see what you've all been up to this week, even if it's a bit daunting.
Today, I came home from the library with two books, and got another one in the mail. Seriously. I think I truly have gone over the edge of sanity here.
This week it's book club at my house already! Wow, time flies. But it is the third Thursday this week, right? We'll be discussing Bel Canto by Ann Patchett. I'm very curious to see what everyone thought. I'll let you know!
Well, I managed to sneak in a little post! But now I have to make dinner, keep the laundry going and continue to clean up the after trip mess. Don't you hate that? But I'll be back soon to make my Listless Monday list!
