Things I am thinking about today...
- The pretty trees, quickly turned to leaves falling on my lawn, during the blustery, cold day we had yesterday. And, this may sound strange, but I really love to walk on cold, windy days in the fall. I like the leaves swirling around and the wind blowing the branches, as I walk through the woods. It is nice to get bundled up and go outside in the cold and then come back inside to a fire in the fireplace and a hot drink.
- My book club is reading The Magic Room, by Jeffrey Zaslow and while I look forward to going to book club next week and seeing my friends, this book is not one of my favorites. It is the story of a family owned, bridal salon in the small town of Fowler, Michigan. The author alternates between the bridal salon's history and stories of the brides who have purchased their wedding gowns there. I thought that it would be about mothers and daughters, their relationships and the emotions involved in shopping for a wedding gown. The stories were not particularly compelling to me and I should be interested in this subject, since I have two daughters. My book club will find something to discuss even if the book is not that appealing - we always manage to have lively conversations :-)
- This week, DWTS was interesting. I was sad to see Drew Lachey go and Bristol Palin stay. Whatever your politics, it is annoying that they even have a place in a television show about dancing. I think Shawn Johnson is my new favorite - so much energy!
- The Detroit Tigers will be playing the Oakland A's in a game 5 division series final tonight - I'll be watching and very nervous. Happy Thursday!
