Good morning! Coffee Cup and I are lying low, I am working on growing a mustache and going by the name of “Vinnie”. I have really gone and done it this time…..
I have over due library books.
I received the letter last Friday and I have never received a letter before. Usually it is an email. In fact the book they mentioned I had forgotten I had checked out and had to do a search and rescue off the shelf to return. SO – I did actually go to the library (the scene of the crime) before I left town on Friday – and I had good intentions to return the several (GULP!) late items I had – but….. here’s my story.
1. I am in my car on my way to the library and there is a train. SO while I wait, I pull open one of the books sitting beside me. I chose Not Without Hope by Nick Schuyler. I had started this one but did not get it finished. A true story that actually happened in early 2009, when 4 friends went out on a fishing trip and only one came back. I started flipping through the pages while I waited for the train. I hooked myself into the book and knew I could not return it yet. While I went into the Library, Not Without Hope stayed in the car with me.
2. Also over due are the CD audio for Happy Potter and The Deathly Hollows. This one I have been listening to all along, but it is 17 CD’s. I haven’t had a large road trip as of late to get this one in and have listened to it as I puttered around town but that has got me to CD #14 by the time of the overdue notice. CD #14 out of 17. I can’t stop now….. I have to finish……. so that one has not been returned either.
Today however – both will be going back. I finished up Not Without Hope over the weekend and that review will be up today. I am on CD 17 of The Deathly Hollows and I will finish it even if I have to sit in my car to do it.
I had a wonderful weekend with my friends on the North Shore. I posted a picture yesterday with the Monday What Are You Reading post. We visited the shops around Silver and Beaver Bay, spent Saturday afternoon at Lutsen riding the sleds down the Alpine Slide, enjoying yummy salads and that evening we attended a street dance.
It is good to be home and it looks like I am going to go back this next weekend just Friday and part of Saturday to do some cleaning that I just couldn’t get to with company. I have to be back Saturday because Sunday morning we are driving my son and his belongings back to Mankato to his new apartment.
Tonight said son and I are going to the movie Inception. He says I have to see it! Busy week! How about you anything happening this week – bookish or otherwise?
