Morning Meanderings….. OH! What A Night!


Good Morning!

I feel tired and energized all at the same time.  What is that???  😛

Yesterday I helped to continue setting up the book sale.  It is looking so good.  Today will be detail work…. hanging signs, prepping the Friends Of The Library table…  I am excited for the sale to start tomorrow morning.


Yesterday evening, we had book club at my house.  We had decided to do soups and I was running around straightening the living room, chilling the wine, vacuuming the carpet, mopping the kitchen, and setting up chairs and little tables to set soup bowls on.  I made two soups – Chicken wild Rice to go with the book…. ha ha and a Squash soup because it looked YUMMY.  Lori in our group brought Chicken Tortilla soup. mmmmmmm


It was a fun night.  While the book was not what we expected (more on that later) we always have such a  good time together.  This next month we are reading A Man Called Ove and I am excited for this one.  We used the book in the bag program from the library but I am thinking I may go audio…. I listened to a sample and I liked it!  It is also always fun to give an audio report on a book at the discussions.

Speaking of Audio, I signed up for the Audio Book Blogger of The Year which the winner will be able to attend the 2016 Audie Awards Gala in Chicago on May 11th.  I will be there for the Book Expo this year so thought I would throw my hat (ear?) into the ring.   I think it would be a BLAST!

So today, off to the book sale set up again, but should be home early today which makes me sooooo happy as I work the sale the next 4 days from open to close.  I may rent ROOM to watch tonight…. I have been excited to see how it is.

    My book club did Ove in January and we all loved him. Have Kleenex nearby. I bawled during certain scenes, but so worth it!!!

  13. Sheila, your energy is amazing! Your book club sounds wonderful. I love soup. I hope you are able to see Room. I would really like to see it as well!

  14. Wish I could travel up to the book sale – what a lot of books you have! My book club read A Man Called Ove and we all loved it and had a great discussion about it.

  15. shew, you have a mighty amount of books there. hope they all go

  16. Good luck on getting the Audio Book Blogger of the Year! I want to go to BEA, but I just can’t with it being in Chicago. And it’s probably best for my bookshelves if I take a year off… sigh.

    Your book club and library are so awesome, which isn’t surprising since their common denominator is YOU!
