This was the last day of my long weekend, and I have to say, it was just as relaxing as the last three days. I got a lot of reading done; at the time of writing this, I have read another 200 pages of Duma Key, and I am loving it. This just might become one of my favorite SK books, and it will definitely be getting its own post here on Froodian Slip at some point. I need to finish it and collect my thoughts before that happens, though.
It was really nice to join other bloggers this weekend and participate in Thankfully Reading Weekend, hosted by Jenn’s Bookshelves. Joining in Deb’s (Readerbuzz) book bingo was also a blast. It was nice to get back into the blogging world and catch up with people–especially Bryan of Still An Unfinished Person, who I haven’t talked to this much in a long time–and to see what everyone has been up to and what blogger events are coming up.
One of the events that Bryan brought to my attention is the 2019 #AMonthofFaves being hosted by Girlxoxo and Traveling with T. Every other day, starting December 2, they have a different topic for bloggers to write about. I don’t know that I’ll be able to write posts for all of them, but I am going to give it my best shot. Participating in #ThankfullyReading this weekend kind of gave me my writing groove back, and I’ve really been enjoying it. And looking over the #AMonthofFaves topics, I know I have things to say. Heh.
And while this four-day weekend didn’t go exactly as planned, it was still very nice and I have a lot of things to be thankful for. I’m thankful that even though my daughter had to stay on campus, she had friends who were also staying and she had a nice break anyway. I’m thankful that my husband has been feeling well enough the past few days to be out of bed, and that he felt well enough to watch some TV with me and enjoy a good movie with me. I’m thankful for my friend Katie, who we were supposed to spend Thanksgiving day with, who brought us leftovers of her delicious food when it became apparent that we wouldn’t be eating dinner with her family after all. And I’m thankful that I got to spend four days doing basically nothing but reading for pleasure and taking the occasional nap.
I hope everyone had a nice weekend, whether or not you celebrate this problematic (in many ways) holiday, and I look forward to being more involved in the blogging community again.
