Well I moved the box of letters (from mom to Grandma G) to my office. At least they’re out of the closet and ready for me to work on them 🙂 And I worked on an application to the Utah Humanities Council: I’m applying to be a discussion/bookgroup leader this summer. I’ll lead 4 discussions in the “For Love of Adventure” series. Once UHC gets the link up, I’ll post it. Also took the dogs for a hike up Taylor Canyon. On the way down, Bubba decided to follow a woman and her dogs…suffice to say, he vanished and I searched the pond area in vain until I found a man who said he’d seen a basset with a woman who said she’d wait at the top of 27th. When I arrived, she had Bubba in her car, ready to drive him home. The little beast. Other accomplishments yesterday: got well into The Shadow of the Wind (my bookgroup book = good stuff); got Bubba licensed with Ogden City (ha!); got released by my elbow doc (he told me to take it easy, not use my elbow as a limb of direct impact = no handstands in yoga and be careful walking the dogs–he saw me wrestling them through Mt. Ogden park the other day); got some books at Wise Bird (Maggie picked up “Into Thin Air”–she really enjoyed the movie version). Today, I’ll journey to my office and start work on the letters. Some of the books I want to read this summer: May Sarton’s “Journal of a Solitude,” Jeannette Walls’ “The Glass Castle” & “Half-Broke Horses,” Anne Lamott’s “Imperfect Birds,” Mary Karr’s “Lit” & “The Liars’ Club,” and a couple of other books I’ve got on autobiography/memoir.
