Wow, it's been over 80 degrees the last several days, with the sun shining and occasionally a lovely breeze, and I had a wonderfully lazy yet also busy four-day weekend. It's making me feel a little sad that by mid-week, temps will be dropping down into the mid-50's :( I am so not ready for fall. Yes, it's a beautiful time of year, and I love the coziness of it all, but it just brings me that much closer to winter, and I'm already having dreams about shoveling snow - not my idea of a good time, let me tell ya.
Anyway, this past weekend I spent reading like a fiend - yay, reading slump is definitely over! - and going to an Octoberfest party with lots and lots of German beer, and my favorite, German chocolate cupcakes, and looking for a dress for an upcoming wedding, which was not so successful. But that's my own fault, cuz I need it for this Saturday, the 13th, so I should have been looking months ago. I found one but sadly I am so not a size 6P, so I will keep looking. I still have time yet.
And oh man, I hate, hate, despise talking on the phone, but my friend Linda broke her foot about a week or so ago, and I am her lifeline because I've been off while other people have been at work, and she's been calling me 2-3 times a day where we talk for hours at a time. I think I've used up all my phone tolerance for 2007. Thank God her and I have mobile to mobile, or I'd have to ditch her as a friend. Or at least not call her.
Back to reading: I've decided that if I am going to get any kind of enjoyment out of reading, I will only review those books that I either promised to review, or those that I feel need to be reviewed. Otherwise I will feel like I'm reading all these assignments, and I will not enjoy them. Whew, this has lifted a great load off my shoulders. Since I have over 100 books (and growing) in my tbr pile, this seems like a reasonable plan. I have a few reviews ready to post, so I won't be as much of a stranger in blogland - don't know if that's good or bad - and I'm just really excited about most of the books I've been reading lately.
Blogging - I hope to be a better person when it comes to blog-hopping. Truth is, I miss my online friends, and feel bad when I can't, or don't, visit on a regular basis. There are just so many hours in the day, and I find I do need sleep, so something's gotta give. Lately it's been blogging. I find my interests are cyclical, so eventually I come back to some of my favorite hobbies. Plus when it's been nice, the last thing I want to do is hang out on the computer when I could be enjoying the sun and wearing sandals, you know. But now, fall's upon us, the weather will change, I will hibernate, read, watch movies, and blog, blog, blog. Cannot wait.
What are your favorite fall activities?
Do you huddle indoors when the temps go below 70 degrees?
