The Sunday Salon: And Then I Got Sick

My life's observations as of late Saturday night. Enjoy!

Outside my window: Ah, another perfect day today! Perfect I say! And after a week, a full week!, of rain. Which was crazy, but welcome. I love the rain. It made me happy actually.

I am listening to: Mary Poppins.... specifically I Love to Laugh! I was shocked when my daughter said she'd never seen this movie! Poor deprived child!

I am watching: Well, I was watching another Downton Abbey episode, but it got over, so now it's Mary Poppins in the background, though I'm not really watching.

I am thinking: that it's a drag I decided to get a lovely head cold today. Here's hoping it doesn't last long. I've really too much to do this week.

I am grateful for: clothes stores that have normal prices. Sheesh I stepped in to Nordstrom's today, looked at the price tag and about died laughing. How do they get away with that? It truly blows me away!

I am reading: Just finished City of Ashes... very fun. Quite the romp! And then I started Hero of Ages by Brandon Sanderson. Also, I got Wolves, Boys and Other Things that Might Kill Me  by Kristen Chandler today, so think I'll start in on that one. I also got The Wise Man's Fear this week and am dying to jump right into that one! Ugh... when will I find time to read though?

I am photographing: Nothing this week.

I am listing: Different things for different posts for Armchair BEA! And all the things I have to do this week. I did lots of stuff today, but nothing really got marked off the list. I hate it when that happens.

I am creating: I meant to sew some more today, but I ran out of time and energy. Keeping fingers crossed for time this week.

On my iPod:  I finally got a real cd for Pet Shop Boys... it's called Pop Art and it's two cds of their hits. LOVE it! Yes, the Pet Shop Boys craze continues!

I am hoping and praying: that this cold doesn't last long. And that my son travels home safely this Friday!

Around the house: I washed half the windows.... meaning the inside... I really hope to tackle the outside soon.

From the kitchen: Oh man, do you have to ask?! I think next week I'll have something to report on this front!

One of my favorite things: Smokey Jack Paninis at Jason's Deli.

The children this week: It's the second to last week of school for one. The other one has to go into June a bit more. That's going to be a trial and a trib. We'll survive though.

Plans for the week: Trying to keep up with Armchair BEA stuff, and finish up Utah Author Month posts, and get ready for my son to come home and plan a welcome home party this next weekend! Whew. See why there's no room for being sick?!

On this date: In 2008 I reported on a author library event I went to, one of the first author things I went to which started the current craze. This event was also the one where Natasha and I realized afterwards we were both there, but didn't know each other. Then the idea of blogger get togethers was born!

Thanks to Ibeeeg of Polishing Mud Balls for the inspiration for this post's layout.


  1. I'm sorry you're sick I hope it passes quickly. You have a very busy week!

  2. Being sick is the perfect excuse to watch Downton Abbey. Are you liking it?
    (Have you seen the new Sherlock Holmes w/ Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman. So fun!)

  3. I hope you get better soon! That head cold junk has been going around our high school and I got it TWICE. Yep. Be really careful with this one.

    I can't wait to see what you think of Kristen Chandler's book. I hope I can finish it before the end of the month, but I'm trying to finish up school and a couple of ARCs. We'll have to chat! :)

  4. I hope you are feeling better. It really does dampen spirits when sick.
