Good morning and Happy Sunday. We're enjoying a relatively quiet weekend on the lake... how often does that happen? My husband is out of town for a family memorial service/reunion and will be home early this evening. Twin A is putting in long hours at work, while Twin B and I take care of the yard work, run errands, and (hopefully) accomplish a few domestic chores.
Inspired by Lisa, I'm experimenting with a new Sunday Salon post format.
Time: 9:30 Sunday morning
Place: my favorite chair
Out my window: 56 degrees, overcast with a few showers... very quiet on the lake
The last twenty pages of Some Tame Gazelle by Barbara Pym and sipping black coffee... although tea might be the more appropriate drink.
And the Mountains Echoed by Khaled Hosseini
I literally had goosebumps at the end of the first chapter, and the word 'mesmerizing' came to mind after the second. I plan to purchase a hardcover copy when the book is released on Tuesday because I can't listen fast enough. My mother and sister will love it, too.
So many beautiful knitted projects have been popping up on blogs and Pinterest lately, but my needles have been idle for the last decade. I'm off to the yarn shop this afternoon and will attempt to get back into things with this simple scarf... if I can only remember how to cast on! (photo from Pinterest)
No film or television viewing last week, but the twins and I enjoyed a few old family movies, especially our 2001 'Christmas of the American Girl Doll' when Samantha, Kit, and Kirsten joined our household.
Sunday home delivery of the New York Times
Tomorrow's Classics Spin number... it will determine my next read.
A quick trip to NYC to see Daughter #1... maybe next week?
How was your week? Any big plans for today?
