Good morning! I am currently in Wisconsin getting ready for the Muckruckus which we will do at 11:30 this morning. Funny enough, where we went to eat last night had a poster on the wall advertising a book sale in Hammond Wisconsin so……. we are going to stop by there before we go to the Muckruckus…. yup, that is how we roll. 😀
Ok… the above paragraph is no longer true. I STARTED to write this post YESTERDAY morning in Wisconsin and it was taking SO long to upload pictures I could walk away from my computer, have some coffee and come back and still wait. 😯 With two other girls waiting for me so we could get moving… I had to give up… however, since I did have something I wanted to say for Alyce’s Saturday Snapshots, I still am posting…. as well as ending with a little Sunday Salon.
this mornings Saturday Snapshot, hosted by Alyce from AT Home With Books, I wanted to post some pics from last weekends (August 4 and 5) Camp Benedict Bike ride…. I biked 104 miles day one (My first 100 (Century) in a day)… and I biked 75 the next day. It was wonderful weather and wonderful people to hang out with!
Two gorgeous riding days, 173 miles combined…. I wish this ride was more than once a year! LOVE this ride. LOVE the people who ride it.
Ok, now for the Sunday Salon…
Yesterday, as I mentioned above, I was in Wisconsin for the Mudruckus (which,I am pretty sore from but that is a different story….) We drove there on Friday and went out to dinner Friday evening. AT the restaurant we ate at they advertised a book sale in Hammond Wisconsin on Saturday… about 24 miles away from where we were staying… AND in the opposite direction from where we needed to go.
Did I mention the two girls I was with are both from my book club?
SO yup, we traveled the 24 miles in the wrong direction for our event early Saturday morning so we could check out there book sale. While not an overly impressive one (mainly older titles), they were still 50 cents a book and I walked out with these treasures:
Turns out they were 12 for $3.00 (top two are movies, and the right side one is audio. ) I paid $4.00 for the stack.
Later this week, I am getting new books shelves in the book room. It will be a huge project to empty that room out, but I think the ending results will be wonderful and give me a home for all my books as well as help me get organized. When all is said and done I am pretty sure I will have a nice pile to donate to the library. I will be documenting the “before, during, and after as well.
Today, I will be laying low. After a slide into mud yesterday during the Mudruckus I landed so hard on a rock it took my breath away and I am still hurting. I think I am just bruised with a capital “B”. At least I am able to sit a little more comfortably today. 😛
