I canât believe I havenât talked about this yet, but can you believe the last Harry Potter book comes out this summer???!!!! I am so torn up over this. Obviously, I canât wait to find out what happens, but it is also so sad to know that HP is at last coming to an end. And Iâm not a pessimist or anything, but part of me is already sad as though itâs already over. I was talking to Kyle (ex-Philip) and my friend Carrie about it, because we are all HP fans. And they both feel the same way. Like the day JKR announced the release date of Book 7 was the beginning of the end. Back when it was book 4 and 5, we were comfortably in the middle â YEARS away from the 7th year. And now, here it isâ¦ this summer. I havenât loved a series of books like this since I was a girl reading Little House and Anne of Green Gables. The best part about Harry and friends, is that I know these stories will still be so wonderful to read again and again â and I am so looking forward to the day I get to read them with Ben.
Well, I said I was going to make some more recipes from the Biggest Loser book and I did. (I had a major baking morning on Saturday â see my post on my website - www.alisonsweeney.com. The Portobello âPizzasâ were delicious. If you like mushrooms. My husband doesnât, so I got to relish them all by myself. I also made the Raspberry Bran Muffins. And as Ben said, âyummy muffins!â They turned out really moist and even though they are mini in size, I found the substantial flavor to be really filling. And you automatically feel so spoiled getting to eat carbs like that!
All full and happy from our muffins, Ben and I ran some errands together. And Ben loves going into stores because he loves saying âHiâ and âByeâ to everyone we see. Itâs so fun to see the look on peopleâs faces when he talks to them. Usually everyone says âhiâ back with a smile.
I also posted on my website about the book club Iâm in with my girl friends. We at the beginning of the year, and weâre on our third book. Itâs been so fun to have dinners and discuss the novels weâve read and hear everyone elseâs thoughts. I love to read but itâs so easy to get distracted or too busy. So the deadlines and the meetings are a perfect motivator. If you want to read along with us, you can check out my post about it and join in the fun.
And with the two week hiatus at Days, I have plenty of time to read, bake and hang out with Ben. What could be better???!! And Iâm going to enjoy every moment. Because I know weâre going to be so busy when we get back to work. There is a huge storyline that we are shooting in April â to air in May. Believe me â itâs really good stuff!!! I got all teary reading the scripts.
