Morning Meanderings… Oh Scarlett!
The holiday weekend is over. Did anyone do anything? I actually forgot it was a holiday until I was at the grocery store yesterday afternoon and the check out lady asked me if I was enjoying the holiday. hash tag #outoftheloop. And yes I know, I don’t have to say hashtag. 😉
In my current first time reading of Gone With The Wind I last left you with Scarlett and I on the way to the party. Yes you know the one – THE PARTY. The one with Ashley and his bride to be cousin and Scarlett’s plan to woo him to her side. Pretty sure she would use a word like woo.
And…. spoiler alert for those who have not read the book, the party is a hot mess. First up, Scarlett makes a big ol’ fool of herself when she can attracts every man in the rooms attention except for the one she really wants to make jealous, Ashley the cousin lover. AND… thinking about it that is really not a spoiler as anyone who knows anything about Gone With The Wind knows it has something to do with Rhett and Scarlett. Even I know that much. 😛
For today…. I have a lunch get together, apples to start working on for apple butter, AND book club tonight. I am really looking forward to book club tonight. Last month I was so busy with Wine and Words I did not read our selection and I was really tired at the meeting so did not contribute at all. Tonight I am looking forward to a good discussion of Crooked Letter Crooked Letter by Tom Franklin.
What book are you discussing in your book clubs?
