{solsc} 18/31 #sol18 Going to a Party!


Today seemed like a great day to attend Leigh Anne's favorites party (You can read about it here). We just arrived home from the Land of the Internetless (my mom's) and I just don't have much ambition to write today.  I also went to Leigh Anne's party last year so the trick will be to bring five new things this year.

Here's what I'm bringing:

1. My new writer's notebook. I love everything about it, the quote on the cover, the feel of the paper, the size of it and even the spacing of the lines. And we all know if we are going to the party, there will be lots to write about!

2. Spring bulbs for planting.  I am so done with winter and cold weather. Today there is a touch of spring in the air. My tulips are up about two inches and I can't wait for them to bloom.  I'm pretty sure from reading everyone's posts over the last couple of weeks that we are all ready for spring, so what could be better than something to plant.

3. Fudgsicles. The perfect ice cream treat. Not too big. Not too small. And what's a party without ice cream?

4. The Great Alone by Kristen Hannah. It's her new book and I haven't read it yet, but I'd sure try before the party so we could talk about it. I loved everything I've read by Hannah, so I'm pretty sure this one will be a favorite.

5.  My camera. I'd want to take party pictures of all the fun we were having and the new friends I'd make so my camera would be a necessity!

So, there they are. Five favorites for this year. Now, you know you want to. And some day, you'll need to. What will you bring to Leigh Anne's party?

  1. I'll play. I don't have a favorite book, so I'll bring one I love that I'm teaching now: "The Things They Carried." Very meta, so lots of writing talk. Favorite person: My husband Ken. Favorite party food: That's easy, spinach dip. Favorite song: Again, I don't have one, so how about a party song, such as "Get This Party Started." Surprise: A game, like Drawly (?) which is like Pictionary w/ a phone.

    Loved reading your twist on Lee Ann's post.

  2. Yes to notebooks and fudgsicles! There are many reasons why I do that post. One is to "meet" new people, but the other to help when we either don't have time or have run out of ideas! I have a feeling that many will attend in these last two weeks. Thank you for coming!

  3. Cute idea. I love me a good interactive slice! What to bring? Okay, a banana mug cake, the new book I'm reading: Spoonbenders, my iPad with the final season of Black Mirror downloaded, my chapstick, and my silk eye mask.

  4. Lots of fun things for the party. My tulips have been pushing through since the first of the month. Hopefully they will bloom before the month is over. I will need to check out Kristin Hannah's books. Hope you had fun at your mom's celebrating.

  6. Deb,

    What will I bring to Leigh's party?

    Not sure. How about if you come again with me this year?

    We still have snow. I am waiting for the crocus to come out. We were looking at seed catalog and putting tags on all things we want to grow. Dreaming of Spring.
