Java With Jo
My daughter came home from college last night and tomorrow we are planning to bake cookies all day long. It should be a fun and exciting day for that. Maybe when we are done with our day of baking we will relax with a movie and do a little knitting and crocheting. I taught her how to crochet when she was home over Thanksgiving and that inspired me to pull out a couple of projects of mine that I had started years ago.
Last week I finished reading my first Kindle book and I can tell you that I loved the experience. Of course I still love real books, but reading from the Kindle was just so convenient. It was much easier to read at my desk over my lunch hour while eating as I didn't have to worry about trying to keep the book open with random desk items.
It looks like I will be able to complete all of the reading challenges I signed up for except for the 100+ Reading Challenge. I didn't really expect to complete this one so I'm not really heart broken about it. My main goal with this challenge was just to compile a list of the books that I have read during 2010 so personally I have completed my goal with this challenge! So even though I failed it is still a personal success...what a way to put a spin on it, hey? The last challenge I am working on is the What's in a Name Challenge. I am currently reading The Swimming Pool, which is the last book needed for me to complete this challenge.
I'm sure I will be quite busy next week also, so in case I don't get a chance I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas!
