I am sitting here on Monday morning, watching the snow fall down, listening to the radio and all of the cancellations that are happening, hoping my hubby got to work okay, amazed how the weather can turn so quickly. I do live in a snowbelt however, and we have been so lucky this year so far. Naturally, the 'big one' was going to hit soon and hit it did. When a military base gets shut down except for non-essential personnel, you know things are pretty bad. I have to admit however, the first major dumping is always so pretty, until you have to go shovel, drive, or do anything else outside. By the time January comes though, I am ready to pack my bags and head down to Myrtle Beach for the rest of the year. When the transition from 'ski bunny' to 'snow bird' occurred is beyond me, but I am more than happy to admit that I will be spending a lot of my retirement in warmer climates than in the one in which I am currently living. Will I miss the snow? I can always look at it on television!!!!
BookJourney. It's a great way to take stock at what you need to do to clear that ever-growing TBR pile of books and get yourself organized. It's also a way to take a look at what you read last week, what you are currently reading, and decide what you need (or want) to read in the upcoming week. It also gives you a chance to browse some wonderful blogs and take a look at what other people are reading. I always discover some great books to add to my list of books I would love to read.
What I read this week: It's been a slower week for me this week. With the flu ripping through our household last week, whatever energy you have left is used to haul your carcass to bed or to deal with kiddies who still demand your attention. It was an energy-sucking flu that attacked both my hubby and myself that pretty much left us incapacitated for a couple of days. All I can remember from last Wednesday is lying in front of the fireplace from the time I got home from work until I finally found the energy to get to bed, with my daughter rubbing my back from time to time, going "Poor mommy!"
