Talk & Thoughts

I posted my first Friday meme!!!!  And signed on for another 2010 challenge..Reading From Your Shelves hosted by Biblio By The Sea.  A great way to organize my book cases.  Definitely a plus now having an ereader.  My plan is for later today, I will visit other blogs for Aloha Friday and post and/or respond to any comments.  Off to another appointment and since my hubby is driving, I will be reading !!!!!!  Happy reading all.

Aloha Friday hosted by An Island Life

Directions:If you’d like to participate, just post your own question on your blog and leave your link below. Don’t forget to visit the other participants! It’s a great way to make new bloggy friends!
      Any holiday traditions?
Being a Catholic ItaloAmerican, our tradition is to have a 7 fish dinner on Christmas Eve.  For 24 years I hosted it for immediate family and close friends then had an “open house”.

Taking the plunge…what I consider the biggest challenge !!!!  I have been spending more time on the computer working on my blog page than actually reading.  This challenge hosted by J. Kaye (will put the link up later this afternoon) is for 2010 100+ books.  I will be happy if I even get close to that number but am going to be reading more and remodeling my page less.  GLA who entered, especially me LOL.

Talk & Thoughts

Once again !!!!!
Somebody asked me today “How are you keeping your sanity with everything you are going through and all the problems that you are facing?”  My answer was genuine, truthful and simple….the world of books, blogging and the very nice people I have met via the computer.  OK…..When I created my page, which was a tiny miracle in itself, it was just going to be a way to track the books I had read.  I then challenged myself to enter a reading challenge for 2010.  Didn’t even know what a meme was but I was determined to find out and have joined a meme for everyday…except Thursday but I know I will find one hopefully before this Thursday.  I can’t believe how much I am enjoying this and how it is helping me to deal with what I am going through.  So getting back to this posting…..Over the next couple of days, it will probably take that long due to my ineptness of technology, I will be remodeling my page.   Nothing major but I want it more organized for me because I plan on adding more challenges and memes.  Giving another shout out for any suggestions for a Thursday meme, how and what is a permalink,  how to get the percentage bar from NaNoWriMo to work and/or another site where I can find one.  And maybe, just maybe, my blog will be more than a personal journal in the future.
