What Have I Been Up To?

Well, really it seems as though I have been busy, busy, busy.  But now that I sit down to write,  I really can't say what it is that has kept me feeling so busy.

I traded in my Ford Taurus X for a Ford Focus.  That took a chunk out of last week.  I don't have so much stuff to haul around now and I will certainly notice the difference at the gas station!  It will be my Florida car.  I will drive it down this fall and fly back in the spring.

My son and I took a ride down to visit my daughter and the two grandkids on Sunday.  We had a visit and went out to eat.

I have been super busy at the library.  In fact I have a backache from toting boxes of books around.  I am becoming more and more enamored of the e-book idea, I can tell you that!

I went to see Gone Girl with my friend from the library.  I thought it was okay, not great.  I read the book and even though I didn't think it was such a well written book the story was so compellingly suspenseful that I could not put it down.  The movie didn't grab me in that way.  I also have to re-read the ending because I didn't think the movie ended in the same way as the book.  But that could just be my memory.

I did meet with the card making group last week.  I have started making my Christmas cards and have 30 done now.

That sounds busy enough, I guess.

  1. When we are busy, the days just roll one into another, and if there is nothing momentous, I too have trouble remembering just what it was I was so busy doing. It sounds like you have done plenty. And stop carrying those heavy book boxes! Back trouble is not to be taken lightly.

  2. You and Judy of JustJudy both saw GONE GIRL this weekend and I am jealous. Judy didn't really review the movie, she just liked seeing Ben a lot. Ron used to keep buying boxes of books at auctions and I had to carry them to the truck. I can empathize with your sore back. There is nothing more painful to the back than boxes or books!

  4. Well, you certainly HAVE been busy! A question: if you fly back from Florida, how does the car get back? I, too, read Gone Girl, but I'm not that anxious to see the movie. Good for you with the Christmas cards started -- mine are still in my head!

  5. Sounds like you've had a wonderful week! I worked the Book Fair last week so I can sure relate to those sore muscles from lugging books -- but it was worth it! Hope you have a wonderful week!

  6. Enjoy that new car. When ever I get one,I can't wait to take a road trip.
    I understand the movie and book are a bit different even though the writer was also the screen writer.

  7. Sometimes I think I'm so busy too, then I reassess what I've done and its not much!!! Guess now that we're retired we can take our time and do a project well, instead of a lick and a promise!!!

  8. I try telling myself that feeling to busy is a mental thing. Some days it works... ha ha

  9. Ford Focus might be my kind of car, when I am ready to chuck my 2002 Hyundai Accent.
    I used to work in a library and know what you mean by carrying heavy boxes of books.
    E-books are fine, but too often people plagiarize by cutting and posting from one book to theirs.

  11. I read Gone Girl, too - didn't even know a movie was made... As you know, I'm a big e-book fan - and not because of my back!

  12. I'm curious about the movie. I am in the minority's here but I was not a big fan of the book. It thought it was a good story but TI didn't like the two main characters
