Thursday Things/Friday Wrap...The List and the Jacket

Thursday Things

We finally finished creating our list for 101 Things in 202 Thursdays.  We ended up with a good mix of the ambitious, the bizarre, and the mundane. Since we've four of those Things planned for this coming week, we're still on schedule in terms of accomplishing all 101 items within the next four years.

Coming up with all those Things was more difficult than we'd expected.  Though we've no shortage of desired adventures, we had to keep the list realistic.  We don't have all the money in the world, so we can't afford to visit all the places the girls and I would like to go.  Even so, I think we've enough travel on that list to keep everyone happy for quite a while.

Friday Wrap

Check out the cover jacket of UP!  We are so happy with this design!

Other book-related news:

I recently finished recording the audio portion of UP's forthcoming book trailer.  Jim Surette of Granite Films is our editor/cinematographer.  I can't wait to see the finished product -- Jim's an extremely talented fellow and we're thrilled he was able to fit us into his schedule. 

The girls and I will guest host on a major blog the day of our book launch (April 3).  Details to soon follow.

Book event dates have been confirmed.  I'll announce those on the next Monday Muse (Feb 20).

There will be more media coverage announcements in the coming weeks, so stay tuned.

Hiking news:  Alex and I completed the Zealand/Bonds traverse on Sat., Feb 4, and both girls and I hiked Mt. Isolation yesterday.  Alex's total number of winter 4K peaks now stands at 39.  Nine more mountains to go before March 20!

Have a great weekend, everyone!
