Busy weekend!

We woke up to snow on the ground and falling from the sky. It was so pretty. But that wasn't about to stop our plans for today. The day was almost as jampacked as yesterday. I've had zero time to jump on the computer. Lots of stuff going on to keep me hopping. Though today I spent most of the day sitting at Mount Hood Community College watching a swimming championship meet. I did manage to read all of Jane Austen's Northanger Abbey for my Jane Austen Book Club that will be meeting soon and see my oldest win her heat in the freestyle and do well in her other races. A very good day.

Tonight was spent with Mr. Tumnus. He's been the topic of conversation this weekend so we watched The Chronicles of Narnia tonight. My kids play Narnia all the time. I could read them C.S. Lewis' series over and over again. They never grow tired of the tale of the Pevensey children.

And now I'm ready to call it an early night. I'll post the contest winner tomorrow. Hope you had a nice weekend!

Busy indeed, Melissa! I liked Northanger Abbey - but not quite as much as Austen's others. I don't think I got all the gothic humor/subtle jabs at the genre.

I really wish it'd stop snowing here - and also - it's the Lunar/Chinese New Year. :) So Happy New Year, everyone! [Again!]

Sounds like you had a full day. I hope the rest of the week is more relaxing.

Have a good Monday.

Heh - I always "forget" this blog is on PST, and I'm on EST.

So Happy Monday, Chinese New Year, and Australia Day, everyone!

Snow? Please send some here? Pretty please! *G*

I hope your Monday is refreshing and happy!

I never read "Northanger Abbey," but I loved the Masterpiece Theatre production of the book.

Congratulations to your daughter for winning her heat!

I started reading Narnia to my 2 daughters but I guess I waited too long because I only got 2 books read before the oldest wanted to read it herself and my youngest wasn't interested (sigh). I really enjoyed the first movie and hope to see the next one too.
