In addition to being Easter Sunday, today marks my first Sunday Salon post. The Sunday Salon was the first weekly blogging event I became aware of, yet I was hesitant to join in . There would never be something to write about each week, plus I certainly wouldn't be blogging on Sunday! My plan was simply to write about the books I was reading...maybe twice a week.
Well, plans change. My blogging now includes participation in a couple weekly events (Short Story Monday and Booking Through Thursday),and I have discovered challenges. The Sunday Salon seems like a perfect way to wrap up my week of reading, keep track of challenges, and plan for the week ahead.
Most of this week was spent getting ready for Easter. In addition to activities at church, there was shopping, cooking and baking to be done. Daughter #1 needed a ride home from college, so much of Friday was spent in the car. I did finish The School of Essential Ingredients by Erica Bauermeister on audio, a short story for tomorrow's Short Story Monday, and finally got back to The Wapshot Chronicle by John Cheever. My review of Therese Raquin by Emile Zola for The Classics Challenge was also completed.
It's spring break for the local schools this week. The twins will be home, so my reading plans are modest. I'd like to finish The Wapshot Chronicle, read at least one short story, and start The Help by Kathryn Stockett on audio.
One last Easter surprised to share...Carrie at Books and Movies gave me the Proximaded Award.
“This blog invests and believes in the Proximity - nearness in space, time and relationships. These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandizement! Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers!”
Thank you so much, Carrie, for this lovely Easter gift! I, in turn, will pass this award on to the blogs I have most recently begun to follow:
