Extended Day Off: Give away on Monday

I had such a good time Friday, I extended my day off through the weekend! So, I’ll be back to work on Monday.

I want to stop in to let you all know that Adnan Mahmutovic’s new book “Thinner Than a Hair” is released and he is on Blog Tour. So tomorrow, I am going to have some sort of Give Away. Adnan is a beautiful writer and a good friend. He’s a “Bosnian turned Swede” and teaches at the University of Sweden.

Friday I jogged/ran 5 1/2 miles- my personal best! That set up the day for energy, and calorie deficits *laughing* Then GMR and I drove to Asheville where we ate lunch at Atlantic Bread Company – they have sandwiches with fresh “homemade” bread and with all its windows, it’s a nice bright place to eat. After that, we tooled around here and there; I touched and oohed and ahhed over things and here and there purchased a little something or other. We then drove back to Haywood County and to Main Street Waynesville, where we walked around the sweet little main street; I had my Ketel One and tonic and something else to eat. We tottered around; I admired this/that. We then drove out of our way to the Dairy Queen because all those commercials about Blizzards had me wanting one – I ate an entire Strawberry Cheesequake Blizzard: it had chunks of strawberry and cheesecake in it! It was worth the “ohhhhh my gawd I’m gonna be sick” feeling *haw*

My day off sounds pretty durn boring, but it was just that “tootle around as we go, la la la tee dah” feeling that I needed.

I fiddle dee dee’d around yesterday, too. And today I’m going to la tee dah again today. I think this extended “day off” will refresh me for the work I need to do next week. Ahhh!

Hope you are all having a wonderful weekend. Adnan and I will see you tomorrow where I’ll figure out what to do for the book give aways. I have a copy of Adnan’s “Thinner” and I’m considering pairing it with another book or books.

Now, on to finish my coffee…ahhhh.

What are you doing this weekend? Relaxing or working?
