*Ouch* I have been so busy lately I have really let me work out schedule slide. I knew I hadn’t been to the gym for a while to take my Group Power Class, but did not know until I went in yesterday afternoon (determined to get on track!) that it had been a month to a day since I had been there.
*sheepishly wiggles foot on ground and hangs head*
After an hour of lifting weights I met my friend Wendy out on the bike trail and we biked 18 miles chat chat chatting. (and no, 18 miles of talking is not a record for me…. ask my poor cousin who I talked to for 150 miles last year during the two-day bike ride…. I don’t think he will ever be the same as we covered pretty much every topic I could think of.) 🙂
On the bookish front –
My super cool friend Heather (who I met at BEA) over at Age 30+ A Lifetime of Books, is hosting along with Nicole from Linus’s Blanket (Nicole is also super cool and I met her at BEA as well!) a read along for The Color Purple. Would you believe I have never read this book? I think I seen the movie a long time ago – but I am so excited to join in on this! The read along is for July so grab yourself a copy and come join in on the fun! 🙂
On July 16 – 18, I am taking part in Kristen’s (Bookworming in the 21st Century) Book Extravaganza! I am pretty excited. This event will be a weekend of fun giveaways and I am still working out what exactly I am doing here – but lets just say I have an idea and it has to do with certain “gush worthy” reads…
and…. last but not least, the amazing Trish (also met at BEA) over at Hey Lady! Watcha Reading? is putting together a discussion on Margaret Atwood’s, The Handmaid’s Tale, that will take place in later August. This is another book I have not read but sadly has been on my shelf like FOREVER so I am excited to get the motivation I need to read this! 🙂
