Life
Hello bloggies!

So, the past week was my return to work after the holidays. That first full week back is always tough, but since the students still haven't returned it was at least fairly calm. I had some meetings and have been finally informed, officially, that with the changes at work my job will "definitely be changing". I'm still not sure what exactly that means, but have another meeting later this month with the big boss to talk about it. As far as I can tell, I'm not being canned...yet. Time will tell.

Otherwise, it's life as usual. PV (Purely Vocals) auditioned for our fifth year of the Hingham Cabaret, a variety type show that benefits the Hingham (Mass) Community Center. The event auditions January first, then the cast work hard throughout January, with the show culminating the last week of the month. It's a long hard haul for them. I generally just sing with PV, as I live a good distance away, and support my gals who are in the show. It's always a great show and the audience is usually sold out. So, it's great PR for us.

Books and Blogging



This week has been full of reading and blogging as I joined in the Bout of Books Read-a-thon 2014, January edition. It's been successful as I have read more chapters of Moby Dick than planned and finished reading The Truth About Cruise Ships. Then, I started a Netgalley book, my first actually as I have requested books in the past but never got around to reading them, Ophelia and the Marvelous Boy. This YA title was a slow start for me, but after a few chapters I am really beginning to enjoy it!  Though I haven't read the planned number of hours each day, I have definitely made up for it on the other days. So averaged out, I'd say it's been a success!

How about you? Did you take part?

First, what's PV? :)

Second, I didn't take part, but I know several book bloggers who did and had a good week of reading. Myself, I've been on a steady pace for my reading and hope to continue that this week, mostly with crime fiction series that I've been reading.
