Refreshed from a road trip | Weekly Snapshot

I'm getting an extremely late start to this post. After the long drive yesterday back home and then a late evening meetup with our neighbors, I was out of juice very fast and needed to crash. And what does Sunday morning mean after a busy week? Tis a day full of chores. Ugh.  Life We spent this past week in Boston with my brother-in-law and his wife. We all got the break we needed - we did some shopping, watched lots of TV, and enjoyed lots of family time. I started writing this post on our drive back but didn't get to schedule in advance. We opted to drive the 13-hour route so although it made for some very long days, it felt good to get out of the house and enjoy a road trip. The weather cooperated all the days in all the places we were in those days so that was a plus.  As always after a long vacation, we have come back to a lot to do. I have so much to catch up with and need to do some of that today as there's just as much to do on the work front from tomorrow.  Renovat

Flashback Challenge!! (2010)




I've been planning to re-read a few books during the next year. Now with Aarti @ BOOKLUST and Kristen M @ We Be Reading hosting this challenge, I guess this is one more I can add to my challenge kitty. LOL!

Challenge Guidelines:
1. The Flashback Challenge will run from January 1, 2010 - December 31, 2010.
2. You can do mini-challenges too!  These are:
    - Re-read a favorite book from your childhood
    - Re-read a book assigned to you in high school
    - Re-read a book you loved as an adult

For now, I plan to read the Harry Potter and the Lord of the Rings series. I plan to sign-up at the Literati level, and read over 6 books. If you expect to re-read some books, go to Flashback challenge

Update (Dec 27, 2010): I expected to finish this challenge, but I'm at least 2 books short. Oh well! Here's what I did read:
1. Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring
2. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone
3. Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets
4. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
5. Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
