Morning Meanderings… Audio, A Trip, and Garden Party Wrap Up

Good morning!  :D  Hope you all are finding your Friday morning to already be delightful… the sun is actually out here so I am hoping for a lovely day which I need in order to finish our lawn :D

This will be a rather sporadic post this morning.  I am usually off on Fridays but this next week while I am away is a big one for a kids camp that I usually help with, a big meeting that I normally do the set up for… BEA pushing back one week this year has put me where I am today – going into work to do some more prep work and hopefully I can be done by noon.  I have not packed yet, I want to get my nails done, prep some food for my hubby here, and pack for my bike ride that will take place right after I return from BEA – RIGHT AFTER as in that bag needs to be in my vehicle.  :D

In a completely random side ways conversation… my audio book order came in from bookcloseouts.com… Each of these was around $3.00 each:

YAY!!!  My summer listening is going to be AWESOME!!!

And finally, if you missed out on the garden party here yesterday for our read a long, Secret Garden, you missed some wonderful party conversations!  I, was late to my own party with a heavy schedule yesterday but caught up with all of you at the end and had a chance to chat with each guest so I feel it was a success.  I have not made it around to all the posts yet, but I will – later today. :D

  1. Wow! Terrific! You made my day! Thanks so much, Sheila.

  2. Ooh, I see some good looking books on that pile, even if they’re audio…lol

    Moonlight Mile is on my list…and I’m curious about the Susan Lucci book.

    Congrats to the winners!

    Enjoy getting ready for your big trip…..

    • Yes… audio Laurel! :razz: SCARY stuff! I have not even started getting ready yet – but that will be tomorrow mornings post…. a level of disorganization that is truly… impressive.

  3. When to you get to NYC? Sunday? email me… I’m trying to figure out when to come into the city.

  4. You got Backseat Saints on audio for 3 bucks?! I’ve heard it’s fabulous!

    Congratulations to the winners!

  5. Sheila, I received a Kreativ Blogger Award, and I’m passing in on to you; here’s MY BLOGGER AWARD POST

  6. Now I’m super excited, this will be a treat for me because I’ve never seen the movie.

    I’ll be curious about the Susan Lucci book, i sure do miss her on All My Children and am disappointed they didn’t pick up her Fall show.

  7. I’m late to the party too! The last few days were more hectic than I had planned. While I did get my review up yesterday I am only now reading the comments and visiting the other participants.

    I didn’t realize bookcloseouts.com had such great prices on audiobooks. Good to know.

  8. So remember when you told me to go to that website — I forgot! Now I’m shooting myself in the foot! Your audios look great!

  9. Have a fantastic trip! I only wish I could go to BEA :)
