Good morning! I'm sliding my post in here with a fuzzy head and blurry eyes. My son and I just flew back into town last night from our field trip to New York City, and our butts are dragging. They ran us like crazy rats, from morning until night, but we crammed a lot of activity into three days. We saw the 9/11 memorial, St. Patrick's Cathedral, the Empire State Building observation deck at night, the Radio City Music Hall Christmas Spectacular (wow), the Broadway show "Newsies", Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty. The kids were also taken on a study tour of the United Nations and Wall Street. Whew! Our weather was gorgeous, at least for New York...clear skies and in the 50's. It was a little bittersweet because this will be the last big field trip for this school, as he heads out to high school next year.
So now we focus on Thanksgiving! We will be leaving our kitties in the hands of our house-sitter on Saturday and heading up to St. George Island for a week. I will definitely include some pictures next Sunday. Turkey on the beach is an amazing thing.
I can't even remember what else I did this week. Who knows. I read the GN "V for Vendetta" and really enjoyed it. It wasn't easy reading, as most graphic novels are. It was complicated and chaotic, but I loved it. Now my son and I want to watch the movie. I then started "The Sea of Tranquility" by Katja Millay on the Kindle, which was a MUST READ recommendation from Rhapsody Jill. I have no choice in these matters, but in this case it was warranted. I'm about halfway through, and it is soooo good.
On audio I'm still listening to Mo Hayder's "Hanging Hill" (no listening time in NYC). I should wrap that up in the next day or so. It is good stuff...all her books are. But it isn't quite as mind-blowing to me as the Jack Caffrey series. I'm excited to see how she wraps this one up.
I think today is probably just going to be spent getting my act together for next week. We're off to church in a minute, then my son has an end-of-the-season football thing and my daughter has to be shuttled to the animal shelter. I have to think about groceries and a dirty house. Hope you all have a relaxed Sunday!
