Friday Fragments are bits and pieces of your week that are usually brief; too short for a stand-alone post, but too good to discard. Collect humorous observations, “Heard” items, other small gems. What are you grateful for this week, looking forward to this weekend? Put them together in a Friday Fragments post. It’s a great way to end the week! What have you been up too?
My week started out with a Happy Hour for the Sophia Group at the lovely home of Pat Nogar. She is the host of Living Well with Pat Nogar and believe me, she is an amazing host. She served a signature drink that was served at her annual lady’s tea a few weeks ago, the sugar plum fairy. It was yummy!
I’ve been taking Sunday and Monday off for a few months now and I love it! The week seems to fly by. That said we are in the last week of January and I still haven’t finished my plan to achieve my 2017 goals.
Here in Philadelphia it’s been pretty gray and rainy. We haven’t had any significant snow…yet. I know it’s only a matter of time and I honestly may like it better than this dreary rain.
I saw my doctor for my yearly check up. I left with scripts for about a dozen tests. Am I the only one that knows I need to get them done but I almost would rather not know?
A year ago today The Stranger In My Recliner was released. The response has been overwhelming. On Monday I found out my publisher closed its doors. It wasn’t a surprise yet it was still a shock. I can’t say I’m not upset but I am a firm believer that when one door closes. I have good options so we shall see.
On Tuesday I found out I was selected to teach the three-day Memoir workshop at the Philadelphia Writers Conference. It’s my favorite conference so I’m pretty excited.
Wednesday I went to an event sponsored by #FemCityPhiladelphia at the Pyramid Club. I’ve wanted to join the Fem’s for a long time now, the women are fabulous! I’m so glad I finally did. The Pyramid Club is on the 52nd Floor. It’s a private business club that overlooks local landmarks such as City Hall, The Pennsylvania Convention Center, the Ben Franklin Bridge, The Philadelphia Museum of Art and both the Delaware and Schuylkill Rivers. The views are amazing. It was the first time I was there at night so it was hard to get a good photo of the view. The elevator ride isn’t fun, I’m not going to lie, but the anxiety is well worth it.
So far the new season of Homeland is good; Too Close Too Home is hysterical; I’m enjoying having Nashville and This Is Us back. We started watching SIX on the History channel. It’s heavy but well done. We will probably look for a good binge watch when we get that first big snow. What are you watching?
What have you been up to all week?
Have a blessed weekend,
