I can’t believe I haven’t blogged since I left for Florida. Pictures soon. It was awesome. I love Orlando, and I love Florida winter weather. As soon as I got home I got sick and I haven’t wanted to do much of anything.
In other news, I am now on Twitter.


New Book Group!!

A couple of weeks ago, I stopped into the South Portland Branch Library to pick up a book I had requested.  It was a Monday evening, and they are open until 8pm.  I asked about book groups at the South Portland libraries, and found that they meet on Wednesday evenings at the main branch.  I can’t attend, because I work late at my own library.  (Even though I help lead the book group in Yarmouth, I thought attending a book group in my hometown would be a fun extra thing to do, and a nice way to meet new people.)  The woman I spoke with mentioned that there used to be a group that met at the branch, but that they no longer had the staff to do it.  Long story short, she and I are starting it back up!  We are going to meet the first Monday of every month, starting in March.  We just need to think of a first book, and then we can decide as a group what our upcoming reading list will be.  We are thinking something light and funny would work well for a first book.  I’m really excited about it.  Any suggestions for good book group books?  One I’m currently reading, which I think might be conversation-provoking is The Geography of Bliss.  Good books don’t necessarily start good conversations, but this one is witty and light, and could start a lot of conversation about what makes people happy.

Jim and I are leaving for a short vacation tomorrow.  Our flight leaves at 6:18 am – earlier than I prefer to be up and certainly earlier than I prefer to be at an airport.  And yet.  We are headed to Orlando, and I can’t wait to be warm.  It’s going to be in the 70s and sunny every day we’re there, which will be a nice change from the 5 inches of snow I shoveled this morning while it was sleeting.  Still, that 4:45 cab ride is going to be rough.
