*It's Book Blogger Appreciation Week. I'm not participating, because, well, I'm not a book blogger. :P But that doesn't change the fact that I appreciate book bloggers very much!!! In fact, "appreciate" doesn't seem nearly a big enough word. Many of my dearest, closest friends are book bloggers. Seriously, like the pour-my-heart-and-soul-out sort of friends. And the be-silly-without-being-slightest-bit-embarrassed sort of friends. And the can-I-ask-your-honest-advice sort of friends. But I also appreciate book bloggers that I hardly even know...because holy crap, has my reading life blossomed and expanded since I started reading book blogs! And honestly, not just my reading life.
*So I've already added about 15 new book blogs to my reader this morning. But I really shouldn't have. Because tears will eventually flow. Yes, I literally cry sometimes when I look at my reader. This world is full of so much awesomeness, but days are only so long, so it's impossible to read and comment on everything one wants to. I know I'm not alone in feeling that. But it makes me so very, very sad...because I want to have the time to thank everyone for every incredible post they write. Know what I mean? Of course you do.
*I started making Halloween cards this morning. Well, if you count pulling a few odds and ends out of bins and making a list of people to send the hopefully one day completed cards to, that is. I think it's the cool temperatures that have me inspired...we even had to close the windows last night. And Max and I could see our breath at the bus stop this morning. :)
*I'm getting a bit tired of tomatoes. Okay, not really. But our garden is starting to wear me out with all the canning now. And yes, this is a good thing, of course.
*After today, we will have our first week of school under our belts. One massive meltdown. (Not me.) Otherwise pretty darn good. Might just bore you with a quick little look at our first week of homeschooling for the year tomorrow...or maybe I'll be kind and skip it. ;)
*Tomorrow is the start of the best library book sale in the county! And we now live very close-by. We don't really need any more books...we will, however, come home with many. It's a given.
