This past weekend was busy – I attended a book festival in Lexington, KY and we moved my oldest son into a new apartment. The book festival didn’t go so well – very few attendees, and I only sold a few books. But I did have the opportunity to see a friend who’d moved to Lexington a few years ago – she made a special trip to the book fest just to purchase a signed copy, and that means a lot.
Moving my son out of his college apartment was an experience – one I hope to soon forget. This isn’t an actual picture, but sadly, it’s a pretty good likeness of his bedroom. I think we can all agree that girls are generally more attentive to personal hygiene and maintain a certain standard of cleanliness. But guys? They probably never notice the smell in their apartments – but moms never forget it. You could burn candles and spray air freshener 24/7, and I don’t think it would have put a dent in the odor. He promised me he’d do better in his new ‘adult’ apartment – I’m not holding my breath on that one. But trust me, I held it while I packed!
Last week I attended a book release for local author David Bell at the library here in Bowling Green. He’s written several thrillers, and Somebody’s Daughter is his latest. Always a pleasure to hear him speak – an outstanding sense of humor, and keeps the audience laughing.
Is anyone else as excited as I am over the trailer for Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald? I actually squealed when I saw it in the theater – hubby pretended he didn’t know me. I’ve heard that Jude Law does an incredible job as a younger Dumbledore – and kudos to him for taking on such a formidable challenge. Potter fans could love him or crucify him – but I hope it’s the former.
Have a great week!
