RTT: Reading, Reading, Reading

I can't believe it's already Tuesday. Time flies. I'm glad that this month is almost over. I'm ready to get my fall decorations out of storage. And I'll be changing the look of the blog! Let's do this random thing which will mainly be re-capping the weekend. That's how it goes...

If you're participating in RTT, be sure to link up with Stacy at Stacy Uncorked and leave her a comment! I'm sure Princess Nagger and Little Dude will be up to something! Don't forget to be random!!!
  •  J and I left for P'cola Thursday around 3:30 after he got off work and showered. Of course, we had to stop a million times, so we didn't get there until after 9. 
  • I got to spend a lot of time with J's brother's wife, Kelly. I adore her. She cracks me up and we had a great time getting to know each other better. They used to live in NH, so this is only the fourth time I've had the opportunity to spend time with her. 
  • We had a great conversation about using the phrase, "Bless you/his/her/their heart". lol. 
  • The guys went fishing Saturday night after we played mini-golf. {Side-note: J picked the place to play. Sam's Funland or some such place. It was pretty horrible. The course was under trees and there were about a million mosquitoes. I got bit quite a few times. I'm still itching. And it was really humid and hot.} Kelly and I were going to swim after golfing, but their apt complex was having a party, and there were way too many people at the pool.
  • Kelly and I watched "The Red Violin" on Netflix. I had tried watching it before with my brother-in-law, but I fell asleep. It really is a great movie. 
  • The guys were gone so long, that by the time they got back, it was after 1 and J and I didn't get to bed until after two. Needless to say, we didn't get up until late Sunday morning, which ruined my plans to spend the day at the beach. :( We had time to shower, pack and eat breakfast before we left. Then, we went by the beach so I could get some sand for Mama. We had Sabrina with us, so we couldn't stay more than a few minutes. {We left the car running with the air on so she would smother to death.} Afterwards, we stopped by Chris and Kelly's apartment to say goodbye. 
  • We got home around 7:30. It was like someone sucked all the energy out of me! I was exhausted. Especially since I drove the last 3 hours. On the plus side, it felt GREAT outside when we got home. No humidity and about 89°F. Perfect weather. 
  • 'Bina had a great time riding in the backseat but eventually, she wormed her way to the front. So spoiled.  
  • My new favorite app is Jango. Free music! On. my. phone. Need I say more?
  • I'm having a hard time thinking of blog posts. I've noticed I'm only doing memes. :( This is not cool. I need to do more. At least, I feel I should do more. 
  • Saw a cop chasing some man out of a gas station in FL. We stopped to get gas and a cop pulled up to the pump next to ours. He got out of the car and was sauntering towards the store when a man came out of the store and saw him. The man started sprinting around the corner of the building and the cop took off after him. He didn't catch him though. I snapped a pic of the cop when he was walking back to his car.

  • Finally finished "The Handmaid's Tale" by Margaret Atwood last night...wow. Talk about Dystopian... It's a must-read for everyone!
  • The weather is slowly turning into fall! Last night it was so nice outside, with no humidity! Pray that it keeps being nice, so we can finally open up the windows at night instead of running the air conditioner 24/7! 
  • I'm re-reading "All Together Dead" from the Sookie Stackhouse series by Charlaine Harris. It's been awhile since I've read about ole Sookie, so I can't remember what's going on. Then, I'm going to read the last four of the series. I can't wait! I'm trying to catch up to where I'm supposed to be on my reading list.  Only 22 weeks in this year left and I'm way behind! Only 43/100 books read!!

Have a great Tuesday everyone! :)

    I spend too much time on memes, too. It's not that I don't have other posts to put out there, either. In fact, I try to tie in when I can a post from earlier in the day or the previous day to get people to read/leave comments on, but I'm not sure if it's working. 8sigh* Oh, well...I'm not gonna fret about it. I'll get out what I want, when I want and let the rest do the work. It will be a) draw more readers in or b) it won't. I'll still be here doing what I do every day - blogging & having fun!
