Various and Sundry Things

Happy Sunday to all!

This has been a puttering type of weekend for me. I started to feel rather icky Friday morning at school and have been trying to ward off fully succumbing to illness (and missing school), so I haven't done much this weekend that required a lot of energy. I did enjoy going through my books to find some candidates for my new project (send me some suggestions! 1900-1920 are looking a little bare!), and I've managed to almost finish Game of Thrones. Sadly, I won't get the next book for almost three weeks, but I hope to get a good start on some of my project reading as I wait for A Clash of Kings.

Another excellent bit of bookish news is the fact that the date for the fall read-a-thon has been set: October 22 it is! Mark your calendars, sign up, and start stockpiling your books! I know I will.

I hope all of you are experiencing more typically fallish weather than we are here. The high for today is 81 (grrr), and I'm tired of it. Last year we had our first snow of the year the first week in October, so I just hope we get a little fall before winter comes to stay.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Looks like I'm going to miss another readathon... this time it's family weekend at Daughter #1's college. We've had a real taste of fall the last couple of days. It got so cold last evening, we had a fire in the fireplace. Apple picking today with highs in the 50's. I'm not looking forward to snow though. Glad you managed a low-key weekend... hope you're feeling better.

I'm so jealous of your weather, JoAnn! And thanks for your kind thoughts. I'm hoping I can at least power through school and not have to get a sub. Tomorrow will tell, I suppose! Enjoy your apple picking!
