#BookFest, Sons, and #AmWatching

I have my first book fest of the year coming up this weekend.  I’ll be at the Lexington Legendary Book Bash this Saturday, April 23rd, from 10am to 4pm.  I always enjoy these events – meeting readers and other authors, catching up with authors I’ve met at other events.  These are my people.  If you’re in the area, stop by!  As a bonus, my oldest son lives in Lexington, KY, so hubby and I can spend some time with him and his girlfriend over the weekend – yay!

Speaking of my sons, the oldest lives a couple of hours away, and he’s more of a texter than a caller.  The other attends college in the town where we live, but lives on campus – we rarely see him.  Yesterday, the oldest calls me and the youngest shows up at the house to pick up something.  Wonderful, right?  It’s at the same time.  If they talked to each other more, I’d swear they’d planned it.

This has been a Netflix weekend for me.  On Friday, I got a double surprise when new episodes of Arrested Development and Queer Eye (love those guys) dropped.  Last night, I made the ultimate sacrifice and DVR’d The Walking Dead to watch Triple Frontier, and Netflix original with Ben Affleck and Charlie Hunnam, with hubby.  I was a huge Sons of Anarchy fan, and I’ve missed seeing Charlie Hunnam on the screen.  Check out the movie if you have time – it’s definitely worth watching.

Happy reading and writing this week!

  1. Good luck with the book fest. I’ve never been to one – there aren’t any around me – but i imagine they’d be fun.
    And i can’t imagine how quiet my home would be when the kids grow old enough and leave for college – right now, i think i’d welcome that.

    1. Thanks, Jina! Maybe someone will get the idea to host a book fest locally – they’re so much fun.

      With the kids gone, it was sad at first not having them and their friends hanging around the house, but you’d be surprised how quickly you get accustomed to it. With the youngest only 15 minutes away, we can still see him, but he’s so busy with band/orchestra/symphony and campus activities, it’s rare he gets the time to come home. On the plus side, we’re able to attend his concerts.

    1. I’ve been to Churchill Downs before, but never at Derby time. We always have a Derby party either at our house or a friend’s, and have a blast. It’s fun betting, but none of us will ever win enough to retire on, lol.
