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) I had soooo much fun last weekend scrapbooking with my mom. It always goes by too fast. I did get a lot accomplished, but of course, I'm still way behind. *sigh* I remain super motivated however and hope to make some more progress this weekend. 

2) I feel so tech-savvy with this comment, but maybe all of you already know about it...either way, don't tell me so that I can enjoy the feeling a little longer -lol- anyway, I was listening to a BookRiot Podcast the other day and they mentioned for Google Chrome...ok this is so cool...if you install it to your Google Chrome, when you surf Amazon for books, it will tell you if the book (regular, ebook or audio) is currently available at your local library! Oh my the awesomeness! No more separate searching. There is also a button to place a hold on it at your library which takes you directly to the library site. Love this!!

3) Still loving Orange Theory, but I'd be lying if I didn't say that every single part of my body hurts. Wow, it's pathetic that even with all the running I did last year, I am in terrible shape. 

4) It's been unusually warm here so far in January. We have been in the 60s for the past week or so and will continue for about another week. Strange. Usually we get our snow in late January/early February and a few days off of school. So far, there has only been one "snow day" and it was because the back roads hadn't thawed yet. I sure did love how quickly they close the schools around here when I worked in it's a whole other ballgame...but I can work from home so I'm planning on that.

5) All I want to do is bake. And eat my baked goods. But I gained weight over Christmas and cannot afford for the scale to keep going up. 

6) It's gonna be a short post this week people, I've got nothing else.
