What a Difference…

Only a few weeks left in 2012. Tonight I was looking back in my computer to see if I wrote any kind of “end of year wrap up” for 2011 and found nothing but revisions of resumes and cover letters dated 2011.  I guess that’s where my mind was last year at this time!  What… Continue reading What a Difference…

And I’m Ready to Go!

I’m excited for the adventures to come this week! Adventures begin Saturday with Kieran’s Irish Pub and First Ave for Glen Hansard!  I’m excited to see him in concert for the second time!  Someone was tweeting during a concert in Washington DC last week and they were amazed so I am prepared to be amazed.… Continue reading And I’m Ready to Go!

A Little Bookish Post

I haven’t written about books for a while, mostly because I haven’t been a rock star in the book-reading department lately!  I spent a lot of my August reading time catching up on my magazine reading.  There is no way I will meet my already-modified reading goal for 2012, but I’m ok with that.  I’ve… Continue reading A Little Bookish Post

There were two narrators (although mostly one) and there were accents (done well) and there was a lot of emotions put into the reading. Two children, best friends at 9 years old, living… Continue reading Books: a two-fer

Sense of Self: Don’t Sing at the Table

Adriana Trigiani is one of my favorite authors.  I have read almost all of her books and enjoyed every one.  I’m currently reading her latest in paperback, “Don’t Sing at the Table: Life Lessons from my Grandmothers.”  It’s an easy read and an enjoyable little book.  She had powerful grandmothers.  They were business owners.  They… Continue reading Sense of Self: Don’t Sing at the Table

TBR Pile Minus One

Well, I didn’t exactly have a marathon of reading over the weekend, because I think that means that you spend more time reading than doing anything else.  I did have some marathon mornings – staying in bed on Saturday and Sunday and reading – but that was about it.  I finished the book I started… Continue reading TBR Pile Minus One
