I’m feeling fresh with a new profile picture and a good night’s sleep. Finished book 37 of this year last night, which always gives me a great sense of accomplishment. I’ve been encouraged recently my several of you all’s interest in my readings. I am currently reading Bridget Jones’s Diary (started last night) and expect to be done with it before I leave for my weekend trip to Nashville, during which I hope to finish an additional book while on the road (we shall see). You can also look forward to a book review tonight or tomorrow that will tell you about book 38 for this year, which I read for a review – written by an author I worked with while ‘blogging for books’.
I’m always taking book reading recommendations and if you ever review books on your own blog, please comment me and let me know so I can read them. I’m fascinated by literature and though I have a unique and sometimes odd opinion – I do like to know what other people are reading. I feel a special bond with other readers.
It’s amazing how getting your house organized can be motivating! Since finishing my organization projects with my Mom over the weekend I have kept my house immaculate, stayed on top of my laundry AND dishes, finished a book, packed for my trip 3 days in advance, etc. And can I just share the smartest idea I’ve had in a while (don’t laugh) – a trash can in the garage! This is the first week in ages that no trash has accumulated in my car because …ta da in a flash of brilliance I asked my mom to buy me a large kitchen sized trash can for my garage. Not only have I quit collecting dryer lent all over the top of the dryer but my car doesn’t have one single half-drunk water bottle or Sonic cup (diet cherry limeades are my crack). Perhaps it is the simple things that make the most profound differences.
Ok last note for the morning… anyone have an interest in doing a guest blog post? I haven’t ever had one but I’d like to someday. : ] Food for thought. If you’re a reader who doesn’t blog yourself, that’s ok too. E-mail me with ideas if you’ve got something you’d like to say you think my readers would benefit from.
