Today was Shrove Tuesday or known by “Fat Tuesday”, and since my son attends a Catholic School, we on the parent council cooked pancakes for all of the children today. There was approximately 400 children in the school today and over a period of 3-4 hours, we made about 800+ pancakes for the entire school. What a job!
One day on the weekend, I was complaining to a long time dear friend of mine that lives in British Columbia about the fact that in the area I live in there really isn’t any great independent bookstores other then”Coles” or “Chapters” that even carry the book I wanted to buy. And, her being the empowering person that she is, I mentioned that I should open a bookstore (as a joke), has now been rolled into that I am actually looking into what opening a business would involve. So now, I am thinking about what I would want to get out of a independent bookstore – customer service, friendly service, you know the usual kind of stuff.
I finished The Italian Lover last night in the midst of trying to get some sleep for an early morning wake up call via my alarm clock, and since I am lacking a bit of sleep, and relaxing, I will honestly try and get it blogged tomorrow or the next day. I realize that I have been going gangbusters on the book front lately, with every few days a new one, I started Little Giant of Aberdeen County today getting the prologue out of the way, so maybe if I have a few minutes between doing the running around I have to get done tomorrow I will try to get a few sentences in.
