Good morning! 🙂 I have been looking forward to today all week-long! This is my “Low Key Weekend” and lets just add some hashtags as I think they are fun: #awesomehangingout #deweyreadathon #dontwanttoanswermyphone.
After a full couple of weeks of great fun, working weekends, and large commitments… I am trying hard to hold on to the sanctuary of this weekend by not over booking myself and refreshing and renewing to be ready to rock and roll again next week. 🙂
So what is on the weekend agenda?
Today -write a couple of reviews, go to the bank, the Library, the grocery store…. meet a friend for lunch, pick up some boxes of goodies at Connie’s home, clean out the downstairs storage and listen to audio. 🙂 (Ok, that may not sound very low-key – but it is)
Saturday – Dewey Read A Thon. If I plan this right, I want to be home reading for the entire day. I will read for charity – I usually do, and hope to not leave the house at all. (Mmmm hmmmm…. there it , low-key day!)
Sunday – church, and home to do a little cleaning, a little audio, maybe going to a friends home to interview her for an upcoming magazine story… but may just put that off. Al and I may be heading to the cabin to meet up with the guy working on our roof to run by him plans for a front deck (YAY!!!! I have waited so long for this! And a possible garage.) If we do go, we will be gone until Tuesday and if he can not go… then I need to go alone. Either way, it’s not a bad thing, I was hoping to get to the cabin this month and it just had not worked out.
Something new…. last night I created a Twitter account for our Friends Of The Brainerd Public Library. After last weeks conference for the Minnesota Library Association I sat in on a session on social media. While it was aimed more at what Libraries can do to connect… I nabbed a couple ideas for the Friends… Twitter was one, as I can attach the feed to our website and I find that super cool. Yes, I said it… super cool. And secondly – mail chimp… which I did not know much about but after seeing what a nice email it sends, it will be something I will be looking into for future friends emails.
Oh… and that Twitter account, in case you want to follow… @BrdFriends
I plan to use it to let people know of upcoming Friends events, happenings, etc… that may not be of interest to you… however if you are a library fan, or a Friend of your local library, you may want to see what we are doing… after all, I look at other Friends and Library sites to pick up ideas for our own 🙂
Ok enough of the chatter… you have things to do, I have things to do. Hope your day is super fab!

Enjoy your day!
Thanks Kathy 🙂 You too!
Read-A-Thon for me on Saturday, too. It always turns into a social event for me and I end up spending more time visiting blogs, twitter and mini-challenges than I do reading! But it’s good fun, and that’s what matters. Now I just need to get all my ‘work’ done today.
I do a lot of that too but I am hoping this time I will also focus on a lot of reading. I am looking forward to it 😀
I didn’t sign up for the read-a-thon, but hope to next time.
I really enjoy the read a thon… I was so excited to see I could actually do it this time!
