Mini Hiatus

This weekend is Canada Day weekend so we get Monday off. For the life of me I can't remember how old Canada is and I majored in history. Dumbass.

So Happy Canada Day to my Canadian blogger gals! and Happy Fourth of July coming up - do you guys get Monday off or do you get the day off?

Bob has next week off so I imagine there will be day trips and shopping to be done. Unless everyone leaves and stops blogging I'll probably just manage to get the rounds done so I'm not sure how much blogging will happen.

I'm having my family on Saturday for a BBQ but I'm breaking out the Fondue pot Bob got for Christmas and the Magic Bullet I got from my beloved Aunt so I'm a little more stressed than usual. Trying to figure out what kind of stuff you dunk in chocolate is a wee bit overwhelming and then I don't think I have the kind of liquor in the house to make specialty drinks. Maybe the magic bullet will have to stay in it's box till the next visit.

It's also obvious that I'm not reading. Not at all. I started a book and my immediate thought a paragraph in was 'meh' and I know it's not the book. So maybe some tough love is in order. I'm just going to have to sit my ass down over the next week and read dammit. It'll be good for me.

I'm thinking I need to promise not to blog until I have read - okay, I was going to say one book but maybe I should set that bar a little higher. I mean, I am a massive underachiever but my God man am I really so very pathetic?

So unless something horribly funny happens (and really it happens daily around here) I promise not to blog until I have read two whole books.


And no cheating either. No MJD's or anything.

Unless I get a copy of Lean Mean 13 by Evanovich. That soooo counts!

Hugs and love to you all!

Damn. This is going to be harder than I thought!

OH!! I just realized I can comment on blogs though!! Yeah!! Loop hole!

Shut up.

Crikeys, how fast do you read? I can't wait that long to hear about what's going on in Cindy World!

GG's off next week too. We aren't going out of town, but when he's home my whole routine gets out of whack.

Let's see - stuff to dip in chocolate
apple pieces
strawberries (whole with the stems)
little bits of angle food cake - the kind you can buy in the grocery store
cantelope pieces
I'll try and remember more

And bummer - with all those books and not being in the mood to read :-(

Rosie - I'm probably the slowest reader I know - I used to think I was fast but if I'm reading a page with someone else they always get to the end before me. Yep. I'm panicking!!

Kristie - you are a life saver!! I never thought of angel food cake - I'm getting marshmellows that we can dip and then I'll have graham cracker crumbs and oreo crumbs maybe and then the fruits - I never thought of pineapple - Bob suggest bananas but meh.

I'm going to read. That is the goal! I have a Dr. appointment this week so I'm sure I'll have something to report ;)


nath said...

LOL :P Don't we love loophole? and two whole books! I hope that not being allowed to blog will be motivation enough :P

Fondue, you can pretty much dip everything... I mean, fruit... grape, mango, pear, peaches... blueberries... perhaps not raspberry, but otherwise, most fruits are dippable... also, mashmellow and graham cookies.

As for the Magic Bullet, do you need to do alcoholic drinks? you could make smoothies :P

nath said...

oh, just read your comment ^^; banana is sooo good, it's a classic :P by the way, is it a chocolate fountain fondue or a regular fondue (a bowl with a flame under?) cos if it's regular fondue, you might want to try Toblerone chocolate... it's very good and the nuts in it gives a nice texture :P but it's hard to clean afterwards.

Happy Canadian Day! Since I no longer work I have no clue if Monday is off or not. LOL.

Ooooooh Cindy, I did my 7 songs meme. Mehehehe. I hope them ~__^

Happy Canada Day! (She's 140)

Happy Canada Day!

And girl, you can't wait that long to blog. How am I supposed to survive without Daily Cindy fixes?

Hmm...I don't think I have anything to add to the "chocolate" dipped list. I don't really like chocolate. lol

Dance Chica said...

Have a great holiday! And good luck with your reading goal! :-D

C2 said...

Happy Canada Day weekend!

You know you can dip anything in chocolate and it's almost guaranteed to be good! But what about pretzels, pound cake, potato chips (a friend swears they're good), or peanut butter cookie chunks?

We (your southern neighbors) get off the day of the Fourth, btw. Inconvenient this year, since it is on Wednesday. Ah, well...there's no such thing as a bad day off. :-D

You don't have to wait until you read a book to blog about it - we like your impressions as you go along, too.

Devonna said...

Heck, I haven't read in 6 months and it's really ticking me off. Stacks and stacks and nothing's interesting me. Hopefully your funk doesn't last as long as mine has!

Jenster said...

Happy Canada Day!!! Todd is taking Monday through Wednesday off, but there will be no celebrating. At least not for him. I'm planning on being comfortably numb, thoroughly enjoying the holiday!

And, um, am I the only one who is clueless as to what the Magic Bullet is your aunt gave you? The only Magic Bullet I've heard of is a vibrator. LOLOL!!!! Not something I'd be breaking out for the whole family!! LMAO!!! (Oh, I'm cryin'!)
