My Weekend

The original plan for this weekend was that Shawn was going to come home a little early Friday night (8:30 as opposed to midnight)! Then we were going to go fishing on Saturday morning, followed by dinner with a group of ruggers (actually a fundraiser). However, Shawn decided that it would be a better idea for him to stay in Seattle this weekend to get a lot of work done. That meant that I, of course, would be home alone for the weekend.

Frankly...I didn't do much. I met a friend for dinner on Friday night. I then finished reading A Long Way Down. Good book. You should read it. On Saturday, I slept in late (imagine that!). I decided that I didn't really want to drive 45 minutes by myself for dinner, just to have to drive 45 minutes back up the mountain. So I stayed home. On Saturday, I read The Scarlet Pimpernel. Yes...the entire thing. It's only 264 pages, and it was an easy read. If you haven't read it before, I also liked this one. I had no idea what to expect from it, but it was a good book (set during the French Revolution) full of action, suspense, and even a little love thrown in there.

Today, I went to church. I stopped by the library to pick up another book. This one will most likely take me much longer to read than the last couple have. It's Ken Follett's World Without End. I read The Pillars of the Earth during college (long before Oprah made it popular), and I loved it. This book is the "sequel" to Pillars, although it's set 2 centuries later. I started it tonight, but it's a bit intimidating with 1014 pages!

I also watched HGTV's Design Star tonight. Yes, I've gotten sucked into designing "reality" TV. I think I'm voting for Matt. He's a Colorado boy, after all. :)

I'm glad to see I'm not the only one being a bit lazy this weekend with the husband away. :-) Glad you had a relaxing weekend. I did pretty much the same stuff all weekend.

have you watched the movie of the scarlet pimpernel? since i haven't read the book, i can't say whether it stays true to the story or not. but i thought it was very interesting and it does have jane seymour(dr.quinn) in it :)
