hip-haps

Boy, it's been a busy week and a half. 

My job gets hectic in September and stays that way until May.  I like being busy during the winter months, it seems to help ward off those dang doldrums.  Plus, I like my job.  We also had a staff day and went to see a Rockies baseball game.  Or as I like to call it, "mandatory socialize with your coworkers day."  Awkward.

I still need to show you my finished clothespin project, it turned out lovely.

Bobaloo and I are looking forward to some visitors in the next couple of weeks.  My little brother is coming to town on Friday and Bobaloo's folks are visiting shortly thereafter.  We've been fortunate to have quite a few family and friends visit this year.  Also, a good reason to keep the house semi-clean.

I have been able to catch up on some reading recently.  My reading goal for 2013 is 45 books.  I like setting this goal rather than making a resolution for the new year.  I didn't read a whole lot over the summer so I am only at 13 books so far, better get cracking!  A friend gave me Neil Young's Waging Heavy Peace: A Hippie Dream to read.  Love that Neil.  There are a couple of books I have started but am not too terribly interested in.  What do you do?  Do you read the whole thing or give the book a certain amount of pages to catch your interest?

On Sunday, it was our one year Nik-a-versary!  She got a new bed to celebrate the occasion.

  1. Mandatory socialize! Hahahah The bed is nice. For reading, I check out the ratings on Goodreads and Librarything.com. If they are both good, I'm pretty sure I'll like them.

  2. At least we were allowed beer at the work function, that greased my wheels a bit. I have a Goodreads account, but will have to check out librarything.com.
