Morning Meanderings and The Weekend Review


Good morning!  😀

Hmmmm…. I am thinking maybe I should start connecting to the Sunday Salon that many of the blogs I enjoy reading connect to.  I love reading about their week, whats coming up, etc…  and this morning, sitting here with COFFEE CUP, I feel like chatting with my bookish friends as thought you were sitting here with me.

Al has been out-of-town on a job this week so I have been working and working out and then hanging out at home.  Normally I don’t mind being alone but this weekend have felt a little stir crazy so I am glad he will be popping in later tonight and not leaving again until tomorrow night.

Yesterday I went to the gym and a Zumba class with my friend Christy.  Thank you Christy!  Prior to going I had no energy and was considering a nap (AND it was only 10 am!).  The class energized me and made me laugh as I am no Zumba expert…. but I have fun trying. 

In the afternoon I listened to the rest of Silence by Becca Fitzpatrick on audio while cleaning around the house. I went into this audio thinking it was the last of the trilogy (check it out on Amazon – it actually says it is the last book!) Then thanks to comments here this past week I learned that there will be a fourth book coming out this fall.  That’s cool, but I probably would not have rushed through this last one… if I knew it was not…. errrr…. the last one.  😀

I hit the grocery store for a couple of things and at the check out impulse bought the new March edition of Every Day With Rachael Ray…. they had a recipe in there for Tortilla Soup that caught my eye….

Note - this is not the March 2012 edition but I could not find a pic of that one on line....

I wrote a couple of reviews, talked with a friend on the phone (twice!) and eventually ordered a vegie pizza for delivery and watched the movie What’s Your Number? which was sent to me for review.  (Review to come this week).

This morning I am on my way to church, have work out plans this afternoon, then home to hopefully do some writing and make soup!  😀  I am working towards healthier eating (ignore the vegie pizza above!) to get ready for some fun activities coming this spring through fall that are going to challenge me physically.  More on that…. later. 🙂

Have an awesome Sunday everyone!  😀

  1. I love soups, too. Yesterday I was hanging out with Noah, and he wanted to go to Red Robin for lunch. I had the Tortilla soup.

    I’m sure it’s not as healthy as the one you’re going to make…lol

    I love Sunday Salon, too. It’s a relaxed chatting and visiting of blogs…in case you’re interested, here’s MY SUNDAY SALON POST and here’s

  2. Thanks for coming by my blog today, maybe you can try some homemade tortillas to go with your tortilla soup! Now THAT would wow your friends and family. BTW, my husband is from a small dairy farm in Hutchinson, MN.

  3. I believe Silence was originally going to be the third & final book of the trilogy, but Becca must have had more to tell us and changed the series to a… quartet(?). Either way, I can’t wait for the 4th book! 🙂

    I hope you’re having a good day.

  4. My library is having a Zumba program in April but I doubt I’ll be able to make it through the workout. I couldn’t even follow with the introductory DVD that teaches the basic moves 🙂

    I love those impulse buys from the grocery store! I actually picked up a neat Gifts in a Jar magazine over the holidays that way.

    I remember reading Stephenie Meyer’s Eclipse and thinking it would be the final book so I read it slowly. While I was reading I found out there would be another book so that made sense because I was wondering how she would wrap up the story in three books. There is another series where I thought the book I was reading would be the final book but I can’t remember what it is now. I guess the good thing is that if you like a series you don’t have to be sad while you are reading book three because there is one more to look forward to.

    Have a great afternoon!

  5. A veggie pizza is healthy!!! Don’t feel so badly about eating it…

    I love Taco Soup…use ground turkey or chicken and it will be even healthier!!!

    Have a relaxing day!!!

  6. I’ve heard so many people raving about Zumba. I think I might have to give it a try – any work out that great that’s also fun might be something I can stick with!

Hmmmm... what do you think?
