My new podcast, Before Breakfast, launched today (please check it out on iTunes!) Each bite-sized episode features a productivity tip (and upbeat music!) to help you take your day from great to awesome. New episodes drop every weekday morning, so there will be plenty of content stocked up within a few days.
(I am also excited about a Very Special Episode of Best of Both Worlds that’s being published tomorrow…but more about that soon…)
In the meantime, if you happen to be in Pennsylvania, I have some bookstore events this week.
Tuesday night, I’ll be at the Doylestown Bookshop starting at 6 p.m., talking about Juliet’s School of Possibilities.
Wednesday night, I’ll be at the University of Pennsylvania Bookstore at 6 p.m., also talking about Juliet and signing books. This is fairly close to downtown Philadelphia if any Philly readers want to come by after work!
I was recently on the Nobody Told Me podcast, with Jan Black and Laura Owens. I really enjoyed talking with them again!
This weekend was relatively low-key. I did a lot of reading (like finished 4 books reading — though they were quite short). We are in the lull before spring sports. Soccer and Little League both start soon. My 9-year-old had his baseball evaluation, which is aimed at making the teams evenly matched. We shall see. I ran outside both days, took the kids out to dinner Friday night, and enjoyed the Bonhoeffer concert at my church. I didn’t know that Maria von Wedemeyer, who was engaged to Dietrich Bonhoeffer before his execution toward the end of World War II, came to Bryn Mawr College after the war for graduate studies. She received her master’s in mathematics in 1950. Much of this theatrical work is composed from their letters to each other. It’s interesting to think of her studying less than a mile from where I was hearing this piece.
My 9-year-old wound up coming with me to the concert. He read a book the whole time. After, a lady who was sitting behind us praised him for being so good during the show, and gave him a piece of candy. This then led to his worried question to me (out of earshot) “Mom, I didn’t think I was supposed to take candy from strangers!”
