Morning Meanderings… My Return to Books and Brainerd


Good morning and happy Sunday!  I had a wonderful start to the weekend with friends.  I went to the Chanhassen Theater on Friday evening to a 80’s Power Balladz.  It was AWESOME!  If you are an 80’s gal or guy and still think it is the best music of the ages…. this is for you…. its music you love and a lot of funny comedy to go with it.  I think we laughed until we cried. I have not laughed like that in a long time.

We shopped our way back home and I arrived at home base yesterday evening, happy and tired out.  Hubby and I tried to watch The Hobbit last night but I fell asleep in the recliner by 8 pm. 


A few books came in the house this week and they look fantastic:


Mmmmmm hmmmmm….. don’t these look awesome?  I am excited about these!

Today I will get book time.  This afternoon I need to dig into our book club read as this is going to be a fun one.  The book, Garlic and Sapphires is about Ruth Reichl and how she used disguises when she was a food critic for the New York Times.  Book Club attendees have been encouraged to come to the meeting in disguise……


I hope you have a wonderful day planned…. later I am also planning to post my interview with Author Randall Arthur, the author of Forgotten Roads, as well as three other older titles that I have enjoyed through the years.

  1. I love your book club! The Light in the Ruins looks intriguing to me.

  2. I have my eye on The Light in the Ruins…have a wonderful day!

  3. Lol! I love that idea for book club!

    I loved On the Road when I was in high school – I used to “dress” like a beatnik in all black and hang out in coffeehouses, I loved it so much. Lol.

  4. I am always amazed how much you DO. Enjoy your books and I hope you get another chance to watch The Hobbit. (I have yet to see it, but I want to.)

  5. I just found your site; looks like you have been around for quite awhile with that many followers. We had plenty of opportunity to read books this winter; I’m from central MN also, closer to St. cloud

  6. I started House Odds but I DNF’d it. I just couldn’t see why I should use valuable reading time for these characters I totally didn’t care about! I hope you like it better! :–)

  7. Garlic and Sapphires is really fun! I liked that one a lot.

  8. Hope you had a good weekend. I’ve not heard of Garlic and Sapphires and can’t help but wonder why she was in disguise. Love 80s music!
