Three-Day Weekends

It seems that when I disappear for a few days, I can blame a busy work schedule and grading stacks of papers.  For once, I have to say that work hasn't been keeping me from writing; in all truth, the reading has kept me away!  Maybe because work has been so stressful over the past several weeks, I just hadn't had real down time to read, but I sure made up for it this weekend!  Every spare second I wasn't working on my taxes, cleaning house, or running errands, I was reading, and it was GLORIOUS.  Over the weekend I read four novels, which might not seem like a lot to some, but it was for me!  Having pushed everything aside for reading, I know I'll have a lot of writing to do. 

Also, as the weekend comes to a close, I'm reminded that the Oscars are in a week.  I like to make a big deal out of Oscar night, often having a nice dinner party or group of people over to watch them, but won't be doing that this year.  Strangely, I'm all right with not making a big deal out of it, but will definitely be watching.  My hopes are mainly for The King's Speech, and if you missed it, check out the following link to see the wonderful Colin Firth on 60 Minutes this weekend.

I hope that whatever you were doing this weekend, that it was a good one!


  1. Four novels sounds like a lot to me! What did I do this weekend? I don't even remember. It's all meds-induced haze.

  2. Four novels in a weekend is definitely a lot to me!

  3. I was driving back and forth to Philadelphia. Once there I was enjoying watching the river and then dinner out. Then we went to my husband's medical appt. and came home. The good thing is that we missed two storms. It showed at home while we were away, and snowed in Philly when we got home!

  4. Heidenkind & Gretchen--Well, 4 is a lot for me, but you know how some folks can read something like 2 a day! *hangs head in shame* Just kidding! I loved the reading binge.

    Rural View--That sounds like fun, so no worries! I'm glad you missed all the snow though.

  5. Wow...four novels?! I was thrilled I had the time to finish 2 and start/finish a third. Way to go! *high five* Sounds like you had a great weekend....and that Oscar party has promise. Enjoy! ^_^
