This past week was strange in all sorts of ways. The weather was so bizarre. Tornadoes, flooding and mudslides. This is Southern California! I think we got over 19 inches of rain total, although the actual figure varies quite a bit depending on where you are (foothills or the coast). Work is still in a state of change. Everyone is waiting for “the word” as far as budget cuts and layoffs. Although I believe that I have enough seniority (over 15 years) to be somewhat safe, changes will be made and hopefully they won’t impact my office too much.
This week hasn’t been too much of a reading week. I started my book club’s pick for next month, Case Histories. It’s very interesting. It pulls you in but I am only halfway through it and wondering if there will be anything to discuss. Sometimes a book is good for reading, but not good for discussion. I am thinking that may be the case here.
My book club also met to select our books for 2010. If you care to see the list, click here. I am very excited about this list. There’s been one change since my post though. The Shadow of the Wind was swapped out with The Book Thief. I’m not sure why.
Right now I have a pot of chili cooking on the stove. The sun is shining, The Hub came home early from work and all of the homework is done. On top of my massive pile of laundry I do plan to get a little reading in. Probably a little more of Case Histories and then I will start The Weight of Heaven for a book tour that I have in February.
Hope you all have a lovely Sunday!
