Friday Chatter - September 3rd 2010

Ahhh ... it's been one of those days ... thankfully now I can sit back and chill out.
I have done the grocery shopping, held the Meditation Class and very soon, will be zipping out to get my son from the train station.

I have spent the last couple of days trying to get my Denz Designz blog updated with a new layout ... what a nightmare - nothing would work right, but finally it all came together this morning. Head on over and check it out if you like ... no books/movies/music there ... it's all Paint Shop/Tag related.

The exercise program is going well ... eating healthy and feeling a bit better for it.
My footy team the Western Bulldogs play in a final tomorrow night - keep your fingers crossed - we are playing the top of the ladder Collingwood, and my team has more injuries than fit players!


Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare
Tomorrow When The War Began by John Marsden
(I have read this before but it was a borrowed book - plus there are other books in the series)
TWTWB has just been released as a motion picture - opened September 2nd ... here is the trailer if you want to check it out.

My Friday " Book Share "
Feel free to share back with me ...
Just open your book up - and post a sentence or two (a little more if you want) ... from anywhere in the book. Oh, and share the book title and author please! Thanks xoxoxo

Those first weeks were spent hibernating and getting our bearings. We took stock, waited patiently as we adjusted to having a physical form and immersed ourselves in the rituals of daily life. There was so much to learn and it certainly wasn't easy. At first we would take a step and be surprised to find solid ground beneath us. We knew that everything on earth was made up of matter knitted together in a complex molecular code to form different substances : air, rock, wood, animals. But it was very different experiencing it.
