Morning Meanderings… Books, Book Releases, and 11,000 Leprechauns

1a

And that my friends, is how a week gets away from you.

It was a great week last week that I balanced with work, and coffee dates, appointments, and reading.  Oh yeah… I have been reading, as of this mornings list I am 6 reviews behind and that does now happen with me…

until it does.

Freelancing is fun, but it is very easy to find yourself working 7 days a week if you are not careful.  I am trying to create work free weekends,but that will not start today. 🙂  That is ok though, because I did take most of Friday off for an overdue meet up with a friend, and then Saturday I ran the 7K in Minneapolis for the annual Get Lucky ST Patty’s Day run; the largest run of the year – 11,000 of us green people doing the 7K in one area, and 20,000 people doing the 21K (the lucky 7 7 7  run) in another part of the cities. I will save most of the pictures for later, but here are a couple samples:

Getting ready to run at the starting gate – that’s a lot of little green people!

Me, pre-run

Me, pre-run, being Irish helps me fit the part!

Book Journey, Sheila DeChantal, To do list

This morning I made a to-do list to get a feel of where I am at for this week, while I hope to make a nice dent in this list today, it is really something I will be working on throughout this week.  This afternoon, book time…. and I know just the book.

  1. I bet The Stranger is great!

    Isn’t it funny that with all the technology we have we turn back to pencil and paper for our to do lists?

  2. I’m glad to see I’m not the last person on the planet still using paper and pen for my to-do lists. I’ve tried using my phone but there’s just something about taking a pen and crossing that chore off the list that just doesn’t feel the same when you just delete it.

  3. I’m more than half-way through The Stranger and, like his other books, it is so good and difficult to put down. I just love his books! The stories, the characters, the dialogue, and the humor are always great.

  4. Enjoy your books…and I have little notebooks in my office for lists of all kinds…not to mention those post-its.

  5. This is the 5th one I’m reading and I own several others. The first one was The Innocent, which I picked up at Goodwill for $.50. I loved it! Since then, I’ve read :
    . Caught
    . Shelter
    . Missing You
    . The Stranger — currently reading

  6. Seven Stones looks good.

    Best of luck with your list.

    Lots of nice books, Sheila. The Cake House looks good to me.

    ENJOY your week.

  7. You look quite “perty” in green, Sheila 🙂 Looking forward to more pics!

  8. The 7k run looks fun. Go green! I’ve done the St. Patty’s run before in DC. Congrats

  9. Hope you enjoyed the run. Love the hat too 🙂
    Glad I’m not the only one with long to do lists.
    Have a great week.
