Good morning! It is the Morning of New Years Eve and I am honestly happy to see 2014 go. It was not an easy year and I am looking forward to a fresh year and see what it holds in its days.
One of the things I have been hinting a bit at is that my hubby and I are taking a trip. And not just any trip, for us, probably the trip of a lifetime. On January 5th we are going to Australia and will not be back until January 23rd! It’s crazy not like us. In fact we have not ever been on a vacation together without the kids. I am torn between exhilaration and anxiety.
We will be heading to Sydney, staying a couple of nights there and then boarding a cruise ship on January 10th. We have stops in Australia and New Zealand. We are going with 4 other people and I will be sending pictures as I can and posting as I can.
In the meantime, of course I am packing and planning, house sitters, dog sitters, wood stove sitters, and even…
After the 5th, I have asked a group of regular chatters here on Book Journey to host a morning meandering. I have had a positive response to this and am excited as their posts have already started coming in. I think you will enjoy the visitors here at Book Journey… they will be nosing around my archives, chatting books and movies, and some will be sharing how we “met”. It looks like it will be fun and I will pop in as I am available.
I am planning the books I will be taking and few real books will make this trip so I am planning on loading up the Kindle. I suspect between the LONG plane rides and the sea time I will have plenty of time to enjoy books.
It’s all a little crazy for this small town girl. 🙂
This will also be the last day that you can send me your pictures of the first book that you will be reading into the New Year. At this point you do not need to fill out the form to join. If you want to be part of the “Reading around the world” collage, send a picture of you with your book today to: firstname.lastname@example.org and I will add you. This New Years post will go up tomorrow morning.
Have a super last day of 2014!!!!
