Morning Meanderings… Oh Boy! Poi!
Good morning! Happiest of Tuesdays to you! So much AWESOME is going on right now I hardly know where to begin. 😀
Let’s see… the Her Voice Magazine came out this morning and my report on my friends Sky Diving Experience made the cover. SQUEEEEE!!!!
And yesterday afternoon I was offered to speak on a panel at this years Book Expo in New York at the end of this month on “Engaging your Readers, Taking Your Writing To The Next Level”, a subject I am passionate about so I am SUPER Excited!
On Friday of this week our Friends Of The Library group will be a part of a ceremony dedicating a plaque to a Minnesota author Jon Hassler who passed away in 2008, and left an incredible legacy to Central Minnesota. This plaque will be one of 4 that are in the state of Minnesota so this is quite an honor and we are thrilled to be a part of it. I will have pictures of the event on this weekends Saturday Snapshot post.
And then…. tonight is Book Club! YAY!!! We are reviewing Molokai by Alan Brennert which is a fictional story set in Hawaii in the 1890’s and the leprosy outbreak including our main protagonist, an 8-year-old girl. Our theme of course is Hawaii and I am making a side dish of Hawaiian sweet potato casserole and poi. Yes… I am trying my hand at poi.
the resulting product should look like this:
Yes I think it looks nasty… this is more for the “yeah we have had poi” experience then my hopes of it tasting good. I have my bag of taro root and I will be boiling them later today. Yes, I will document the process. 😀
I took the day off of work today. After the big garage sale two weeks ago now and this last weekends graduation of our son I have been running like crazy. Today I will work on loving on my house and prepping for tonight with a little audio in between 😀
