Sunday's Ramblings....

Hello everyone

Good evening all !!!! Well it was a nice Sunday at the house. I helped around the house and such. Anywho...did everyone enjoy their Sunday ? I hope all is well in your neck of the woods.

I would like to share the fact that a dear lady by the name of Sybil has returned and I would like if you would drop over and welcome her back. Here is her link ----> . Do go over and say hello to her. Thank you.

I did watch - 60 Minutes - earlier this evening and I found that its rather interesting. They talked about "Swimming With Sharks" which I have to say was worth watching. However I can't say that I would want to swim with a shark let alone a Great White Shark. I don't know how I would feel thinking getting into the water with a shark I think that would be way too hard for me. I don't go that far out into the ocean to even consider swimming with a shark. They also had Andy Rooney with a commentary on his Kitchen Tools which was rather interesting. I would like to see him talk about the books he's read or the books he would recommend.

In other news I am in the middle of reading "Nineteen Minutes" by Jodi Picoult. I am finding that the young man in the book Peter Houghton is not a very nice person. He went to his high school and went on a rampage. In the story he doesn't seem to have any kind of remorse for what he did and who he hurt. I find it hard to have any compassion for him at this point. I will have to tell you how I think about the book as I continue reading it.

I am waiting to see the movie "The Time Traveler's Wife". I read the book and I would like to see the movie. From the previews it looks like a really great movie.

Of course tomorrow starts another week at work for me. I do hope that everyone has a nice week ahead. I guess a lot of people know that school starts tomorrow for our kids. My niece's start school tomorrow as well. I hope that your kids have a good start to their school year ahead and I hope that they are able to enjoy their fresh start to their schooling.

That's all for now. I shall return.

I am following Sybil and I would NOT swim with sharks. I saw that special was coming on. But missed it. I think I was removing curtains or leaving my blog entry instead. lol

Lots of folks wanting to see that movie. I am still thinking about Julie and Julia and found the book on ebay. Can't wait to read it.

Have a good day.
