that I haven't blogged since last Tuesday. I've caught the crud that Hubby had last week. While I'm not totally under the weather, I just don't feel like doing ANYTHING! Thank goodness my kids are pretty self-sufficient, 'cuz I haven't been cooking. Enough whining!

On a lighter note...we had BEAUTIFUL weather this past weekend. I love fall! Not only because it's football season, but also 'cuz the weather is nice enough that we can open up the house at night. We sleep so much better with the windows open. Guess it's 'cuz of all that fresh air. Can't wait for the leaves to start changing. I hope that we get to have some fall color this year.

A picture of me...

Thanks to saintseester for the link. :)'s me to a T. I love to be at home with my family and I'm not much for crowds or large parties, but I work as a receptionist at a local school. Go figure. My most favorite place to be is working in my yard/garden. I have grand plans for our "new" house and spend lots of time planning what I want to do and plant. Scrabble is my all time favorite game - LOVE word games. They're supposed to be good for us as we grow older - keeps those brain cells working.

How I spent my Saturday

As earlier noted, I went to see Menopause the Musical with some friends from work. OMG - I haven't laughed that hard in a long time. While I'm not experiencing any menopausal symptoms just yet, I could definitely relate to a lot of what was talked about - memory loss (I call it the Mommy syndrome), the occasional hot flash and the desperate need to run to the ladies room. The thing I'm really not looking forward to is the night sweats. I really HATE to wake up all sweaty and gross. The audience was mostly women with a few BRAVE husbands/boyfriends sprinkled in. The actresses did a fantastic job - boy, they could sing! My friends and I were able to meet the actress that played Earth Mother after the show. She was really great and told us to spread the word.

I can't do the show justice by trying to review it - let's just say that if you are a woman 35-40+ and need a good laugh about the things we go through as we get older, you need to see this show. It's being performed here in town at the Merrimack Auditorium, which has been remodeled, through the end of September.

While I'm not quite there, I am going to see Menopause the Musical tomorrow afternoon. I hope that it is as good as I've heard it to be. I'll let y'all know later this weekend. :)

What I'm reading...

Continuing on with the book theme...

What I am currently reading - The Boleyn Inheritance by Philippa Gregory. I really enjoy reading about Tudor England and all it's quirks. A great escape reading.

What I should be working on - Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen. This is our September book club selection. I'll start that next week, since book club doesn't meet until the 29th. I have plenty of time. :)

What I keep going back to - Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows by J.K. Rowling. I love this series and just don't want it to end. Guess that's why I haven't devoured this book - I want to savour it. Rumor has it that J.K. Rowling is going to do a mystery type book. That should be interesting.

These are just a few of the many books that are on my endtable, nightstand, book shelf, etc. that I want to read. Just don't have as much time anymore.

Love those books!

While surfing my favorite blogs, I found this at Cranky Epistles and decided to "borrow" it. :)

You're The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe!

by C.S. Lewis

You were just looking for some decent clothes when everything changed
quite dramatically. For the better or for the worse, it is still hard to tell. Now it
seems like winter will never end and you feel cursed. Soon there will be an epic
struggle between two forces in your life and you are very concerned about a betrayal
that could turn the balance. If this makes it sound like you're re-enacting Christian
theological events, that may or may not be coincidence. When in doubt, put your trust
in zoo animals.
