These past couple of weeks have flown by in some sort of supersonic blur that I can only half remember, but know I enjoyed. I finally got a job working for our local children's indie bookstore and will now be occupied Monday through Friday. How awesome is that?! I'm ridiculously excited about it and have already loved my first two weeks there. It is definitely taking some getting used to for all of us, with me being gone and dinner not immediately being done at 5pm anymore, but it's working out.
I'll still be blogging and all that fun stuff, it just may not be quite as regular as it is now. I'm also considering possibly stopping one or both of my regular features. I participate in Non-Fiction Monday and host my own Picture Book Saturday each week, and I'm not sure if I'll continue with them. Feedback on that would be awesome, especially if you're a regular reader of either feature. I get a consistent amount of site hits on those days, but I'm not sure if those are actual readers of the features or just those browsing the blog.
In the midst of all the new job mayhem, the husband and I took a weekend trip up to NY in honor of Labor Day for a BBQ and some good family time. I think it was our fourth or fifth trip up there this summer! We've already decided that we won't be heading up there anymore until Christmas...seven hours each way isn't a long time until you do it five times. I'm wiped!
We had a great time though, lots of relaxing and playing with our nephews, making s'mores, hanging out in the hot tub and all the guys flying their planes...and eating of course! The Snow's chicken BBQ is famous in the Canandaigua/Newark area and I'm thrilled to be able to get the recipe whenever I want! I read a lot too, especially now that my job requires a whole lot of ARCs to be read, so I downed about 3 this weekend. Reviews to come for some great titles in next month or so.
So that's what I've been up to, anyone else doing anything fun and exciting lately?
