Bookish and Not-So-Bookish Thoughts

Bookish and Not-So-Bookish Thoughts is a weekly blogging event hosted by Bookishly Boisterous. It allows book bloggers (and non-book bloggers) to write about pretty much anything, bookish or otherwise (i.e. share exciting plans for the weekend, rants on things encountered during the week. **************************************************************************************

1) Today pretty much sucked...well until 5:30pm when I was done working and saw Ethan. He had his first drum "rehearsal" lesson at a new place and LOVED it...though they didn't do much drumming because they were at the end/beginning of a "cycle"....they work on putting together performances and the group just performed last Saturday so now a new performance will be put together and performed and Ethan will be a part of this one. So excited. 

2) I finished reading "When We Meet Again" a few days ago and it was another wonderful book from Kristin Harmel. I've read 3 of hers so far and have LOVED them all!

3) This weekend Ethan will find out what it's like to be an actor. My company asked all employees if their children wanted to participate in making an in-house training video and Ethan said he would like that, so we did our "casting call" last week and he was chosen. It should be a fun and interesting weekend and I can't wait to see the finished product.

4) Ok - lately I've been quite obsessed with this whole world of Traveler's Notebooks. There are a plethora of Pinterest posts on what to include in your TN...many of which I have saved of course. My TN finally arrived today and I already had my little notebooks to add to it so I'm officially ready. The hard part - I don't have cutesy handwriting or mad doodling skills, so none of my pages turn out looking near as cute as what I'm finding on Pinterest. Maybe this wasn't such a good idea.

5) I'm so tired of wearing skirts nearly every day. I wonder if anyone would notice if I wore a different pair of khaki pants each day of the week. I have 3 pair that I could rotate in/out. I'm all about comfort...but I do want to look "hip" and I've been feeling like my skirt outfits are "frumpy"....yikes - I'm feeling really old...and next week I will actually turn one year older so that's not really helping these feelings.

Rotating the pants sounds good....and happy birthday ahead of time.

The Traveler's Notebooks sound like fun. I don't have good handwriting anymore; too many hours on the computer, and not enough practice.

Thanks for sharing, and here's MY BOOKISH THURSDAY POST
