So another Sunday has come and I am watching Ladder 49 as I mentioned in my Quotable post. And I have to say this movie breaks my heart each time I watch it. I know what is going to happen, I know he gets pinned down in that room. I know the fire is blazing and it’s only a matter of time. But it still breaks my heart. And the worst of it is because I know it has to happen in real life. Fire Fighters put their lives on the line every time they respond to a call. So do all the rescue workers. So bless them. For the tireless job they do day in and day out for not nearly enough pay.
On the reading front things are going fairly well. A slow pace but a steady one. Which while I wish I was not so slow is better than nothing right? There is one month left to go of the year. I can hardly believe that. I cant believe just one month left and I have been blogging about books for a year. I am happy I started doing this, and I will continue to do it as long as it is enjoyable. While this started as my first blog, I have grown and grown in the blog universe and my hubby constantly laughs at me. He Says, “Well I am glad you have finally found enough places to write down your thoughts” and he is right I have. My books, my random thoughts, my Rennie thoughts and even my graphic designs now.
So while it has been a rough year on some aspects it’s been a good year in other aspects. On the Challenge front I will be managing to complete every challenge except the “big” main challenge of reading 125 books this year. I will fall short by around 30 or so books I think. Which in the long run isn’t so bad really and certainly not bad for a first year of doing the big challenge? I may be repeating myself from some other posts, but I can’t help but comment on it because I am working on staying positive about it. And I think I should be. Reading is supposed to be enjoyable after all, not “’work” and I do enjoy reading. Hubby calls me his little book worm. And I love being known for it.
On that same note of being a little book worm my family and friends always ask me for reading recommendations. If there is a new book, or something they are looking to read. They always drop me a message one way or another and ask if I have read it, or what I think about it. It may not be much but it is something to be asked about and I enjoy it. I like being the book lady. Okay I am the history lady too, *laughs* but more often than not I am the book lady.
I hope all my readers have had a fantastic week and that Thanksgiving was great for you. And I am going to do a little shameless self-promotion here and ask if you’re a blogger user to head over to my New Blog, have started doing Graphic Designs on blogger (I don’t have the heart to redo this one because I love the design Sarah did) and I am giving away a Free Blog makeover. Blog Makeover Giveaway at Lady Ambrosia’s Creations Thanks and Happy Sunday.
