Popped over to the library last weekend to grab a book (Anything You Want which I was curious about after seeing it mentioned on the Think.Grow.Prosper blog). Long story short (pun intended), I ended up leaving with 9 books. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ It happens.
On the subject of books, I’m currently reading Bread and Wine, which is Chicago author Shauna Niequist’s account about how a few food gatherings have created a sense of community around and away from the table. It’s beautifully written and most of the chapters end with a recipe that leaves me drooling. The book, in general though, has planted a seed with wanting to start a monthly dinner club now. We seem to have people come through our table at least once every two months, so why not make it more of an organized thing? The hurdles seem to be that we don’t have real friends in our community (I am trying to change this!) as our friends all live at least 30 minutes away and I wonder if people would be willing to do all that driving on a regular basis. (Suburban living at its finest.) Everyone is busy, and maybe I’m overthinking this one as I should just ask and see who might be interested. For the record, just to show you how preoccupied I am about this dinner club thing, here are the links that I’ve been (re)reading all week:
- Friday Night Meatballs: How to Change Your Life with Meatballs
- I started a dinner club and it changed my life [FYI – this is a little bit of a tear jerker so um, proceed with caution]
- How to Start Your Own Super Club Club
Maybe this will be my project for 2018. 🙂
