Yesterday, a group of us bloggers met for lunch in Santa Barbara. Helen, offered up her home, which was very nice of her, and we had a fabulous time. The Hub and kids dropped me off at her house and then headed to the beach. Don’t you love it? I go off to enjoy “me” time and send the Fam to the beach. We met up for dinner later though.

After lunch, some of us headed over to Chaucer’s Books on State Street. I visit Santa Barbara all the time but have never been to Chaucer’s so it was a real treat.
What I Purchased:
I am working through Orwell’s lesser known works. I really enjoyed Coming Up for Air so I have high hopes for this one as well. As for Lord of the Flies, it’s one of my favorite books, but the copy I own is falling apart so I picked up this version which includes an introduction by E.M. Forster.
Today, I plan to finish Invisible. It’s one of those very strange books that sort of resembles an acid trip, or what I think an acid trip would be like since I’ve never actually dropped acid. Later, lunch with the Fam and then tonight I am sneaking away for dinner with some friends from book club. I know! I am once again abandoning the children. The shame.
Tomorrow, I start my Contemporary Lit class. It’s wonderful because I am not taking it for credit so I should be able to really enjoy it and not feel pressured by it.
On Tuesday, I will be reading the book that everyone will be reading. I just wish I had taken the day off from work. It will be hard to read it while I work.
Oh well, off to eat some breakfast. Hope you have a great Sunday!
