A Mid-September Sunday Salon
Time // 10:00 PM Saturday evening
Place // the family room couch
Eating // Nothing, I'm still full from dinner.
Drinking // Hook & Ladder chardonnay :)
Reading // After almost no reading time last week, I started The Ivy Tree for Anbolyn's Mary Stewart Reading Week. A large inheritance, an impersonation, and a dark, handsome hero should make for an interesting story. I'm still reading The Age of Innocence by Edith Wharton, too, and loving the Old New York setting. Edith had such a keen sense of society and style. Despite my slow progress, I'm really enjoying this book!
Listening // I'm on the eighth (of twelve) CD of JFK's Last Hundred Days: The Transformation of a Man and the Emergence of a Great President by Thurston Clarke and inventing reasons to spend time in the car.
Making// The house look like fall... seasonal decorations are on my baker's rack and a sweet cinnamon pumpkin candle is burning in the kitchen. Now if I could only get motivated for some serious fall house cleaning.
Blogging // Unfortunately, not much happened on the blog last week, but I'm working on a post with three or four mini-reviews.
Enjoying// Time spent with my parents. They moved in for a week while their hardwood floors were refinished. I hated to see them leave on Friday.
Celebrating// Twin B finally got her driver's license!
Anticipating // My book club meeting on Tuesday evening. I'm hosting a wine and dessert discussion of Flight Behavior by Barbara Kingsolver.
Traveling// We're off to swap cars with Twin A today. She can't wait to get the Jeep back (Twin B used it for her road test) because driving a minivan around campus is just embarrassing! Zelda is coming along for the ride and Daughter #1 will take a short train ride up from NYC to join us for the afternoon, too... a quick family reunion!
What are you up to today? We should be home in time for some evening blog hopping. I'll catch up with you then!
