It’s almost here ladies and gents! Tomorrow at 7 AM CST I will be plunging in and getting my read on for hopefully a 24 hour period. In the interest of getting myself prepared, I took the day off work today and I am doing everything I can to get ready for tomorrow.
My To-Do List:
- Clean living room, dining room, and bedroom; wash dishes, sweep and vacuum floors.
- Empty and refresh my Scentsy pots.
- Prepare food for tomorrow.
- Get the blog up to date and bookish cleaning.
- Make my fleece tie blanket.
I will feel so much better knowing that my house is clean and tidy. I won’t be sneaking looks away from my book so that I can stare down that pile of stuff that I should have dealt with yesterday. 😉
Please tell me I’m not the only one who really enjoys a great smell in the warmer while I read. There is a pot in the kitchen, bedroom, and I’ll be putting one up in the living room when I can find an outlet….
I need to prep my veggies for snacks, boil eggs, and get my crock pot ready for my lunch/dinner for tomorrow. I’ll be up early (for a Saturday) and I’ll get ahead and save on cooking time by using a crock pot.
I’m working on purging my books. I want to process four stacks; update GoodReads, draft my review posts for my Currently reading widget, set up a notebook to take notes for the books I read, post another read-a-thon post, draft a book budget post, upcoming blog changes, draft my November discussion, and draft the remainder of my November posts.
I bought fabric for a fleece tie blanket several weeks ago. These blankets are PERFECT for reading. They are so darn comfy and WARM. Here in Illinois it’s already starting to get chilly.
Of course not all of this food is going to be consumed tomorrow but I like to have choices. 🙂 Particularly as I have no plans on leaving the house.
The New Addition!!
I went back and forth several times on whether or not to pre-order the new Kindle Voyage. In the end I couldn’t swallow the $350-ish for a new ereader. (Kindle Voyage 3G w/o Ads, New Case, & Screen Protector). Instead I decided to get the Kindle Paperwhite 3G w/o ads. I had the first generation Paperwhite Wi-Fi with ads. This was still an upgrade for me and saved me about $150. I also sent in my first Paperwhite for $60. Here she is:
And of course I had to have a new case. I found one that I really love. I adore the look of it. 🙂
How about you? Are you participating in Dewey’s? If so, what do you do to prepare?
