Today was the first meeting of my brainchild, "The Short Short Book Club". The idea behind the club is to get together once a month for a short discussion of a short story (or two). Really low key! A short cup of coffee is also included, and so far the membership list is short as well. (But enough with the word short!)

The book we are using is The O. Henry Prize Stories 2008. The first meeting was fun! If you want a low stress book club (low prep time!), short stories are the way to go.

In other weekend news...

I painted! I did the downstairs bathroom, hallway leading into the kitchen, and started the laundry room. Used a color called "Soft Brie". Yummy. :) Next weekend I'll probably complete the laundry room and tackle the kitchen. On the down side, it always takes longer than I anticipate, but on the up side, everything is looking clean and fresh.

You had cinnamon rolls! I'll bet THEY weren't short.

pg, you are correct. They were piled high with frosting. (They didn't quite fit with the 'short' theme, but we let them stay anyway.)

Love the idea of the short study. Painting, even rooms, is NOT one of my gifts so anyone who paints anything has my admiration.

What a bunch of fun ideas!
Short stories and a painted room.
Life sounds good!
