I'm coming to you fine folks in a slightly frozen state this morning. I know you all don't want to hear about it, but we did have freeze warnings here in Florida last night! Woo hee! I wanted to wear jeans and a sweater, and I've gotten my wish.
Of course now I'll be studying my WeatherBug app on an hourly basis, trying to figure out what the weather will be next Sunday at 5:30am, when I run the Disney Princess Half Marathon. I'm prepared for all climates. I just want it DONE. I'm really looking forward to seeing my compatriots-in-pain, Dawn and Julie, and I'm also really looking forward to some treatments at the Ritz Carlton Spa that I've planned for the next day. So just a head's up...you won't hear from me next Sunday. I'll try to post pictures as soon as I'm physically able! (And Dawn, I do remember that it was you that talked me into this!)
And it is now Lent, so starting this past Wednesday I am officially on the wagon. No alcohol for 40 days. As a result, we celebrated Valentine's on Fat Tuesday, eating chicken wings and drinking champagne. Food of the Gods baby!
Now, all of you tuned into "the latest thing", don't roll your eyes at the fact that I'm late to this game. But first there was all the "Call Me Maybe" videos. Then everybody was riding their horse Gangnam Style. Now there is the Harlem Shake. If you are ever having a bad day, just search Harlem Shake on Youtube, and find yourself a compilation of the best ones. It is crazy and addictive. I have Andre to thank for this latest obsession.
The kids had a three-day week this past week, so that always changes my routine. I had been picking my way through the graphic novel by Chris Ware called "Jimmy Corrigan" (I still am, thanks to the extremely tiny words and my horrible eyes). But I took the kids to Sea World for a few hours on Thursday, and when they told me I was not to accompany them on rides (OK fine) I found myself sitting and twiddling my thumbs so I pulled up my emergency reading...my Kindle app on my phone...and started reading Gillian Flynn's "Dark Places". Now I am completely absorbed, and totally disturbed as only Flynn can do. And I will finish the GN, as soon as I get a magnifying glass.
On audio I listened to "The End of Your Life Book Club" by Will Schwalbe, and that was very touching, and I loved all the book talk. I am now several discs into "Where'd You Go, Bernadette" by Maria Semple, and it is HILARIOUS. The audio narration is incredible and just a little bit insane, in a good way. Did you know they are making a movie?
Today will be a Sunday like most Sundays...church, animal shelter, and maybe a little reading. Maybe a little Harlem Shake watching. Maybe a little Ruzzle playing. Maybe some beef roast cooking and hot chocolate drinking. Good stuff. Hope you all have a good one!
