Let’s say we’re having coffee (a finely ground and richly flavored one of course), and I’m telling you how excited I am about our Montreal trip few short weeks. We are making it an extended weekend, for a bit of a vacation but also because we are running the Rock ‘n Roll Montreal Half Marathon. I’m really looking forward to the run but also exploring a fabulous new city. I’ve never been to Montreal so if any of you have, please feel free to send some recommendations for restaurants, sights to see, and how I can learn French in a few weeks.
Plus, while we’re sipping our coffee, what’s the big stink of Game of Thrones? Anyone? It’s like all I hear about and I feel like I’m missing out on something, because it’s everywhere and my friends and the media and everywhere are always referencing it. Should I binge this bad boy, or what? Because, honestly, I don’t want to, my husband watching and I find that annoying enough, so if anyone can sum it up for me, thanks in advance.
Also, now that we’ve got GOT out of the way, and we have started our second cup of coffee, I will share with you that we are finally planning our housewarming party at the end of the month. It’s been over a year, so we excited to finally open the house to our general public. We honestly haven’t really had anyone over since we moved in, except for a few family members, so now that we have a grill set up and feel like it public ready, we’ll get on that.
Before you finish your coffee, I’ll also wanted to tell you I am fulfilling one of my new year’s resolutions by reading more, reading actual books and on my Kindle. So, my library card and the new Kindle are getting their new year workout, too. I’ve been looking through all the free selections on offer from Amazon Prime and I read one book designated as ‘chick lit’, but found it a bit fluffier for my taste, so I’d like to get into something a little juicier.
My neighbors are still hosting the monthly book club and I have yet to start this month’s selection, “Brothers and Keepers”. At some point I’d like to host the book club, now that I feel like I have a place to put them all, but I have no idea what type of book I would choose. Any good ones that you recommend? I’m pretty open when it comes to genres and new authors, or some of the classics.
So, anything on Montreal, anything for appetizers or fun cocktails for a house warming or something for the grill that may be new, and book recommendations, all welcome! Now I think I may need some decaf.
