The Sunday Salon: Almost Done!

Sunday Salon

Hello there! I am in a good spot this weekend. One, I don’t have to hit the grocery store and two, we have absolutely nothing going on so we’ve all be resting up. It’s amazing how your outlook on life changes with just a little bit of rest.

Last week was hellish and I never want to repeat it. End of the school-year stresses, DRAMA, and just too much going on. This week has a lot going on too but I am hoping it goes a little smoother.  I’ll be dividing my time between summer school orientation, doctor’s appointments, an award ceremony, book club and rehearsals. Let’s hope The Girl gets a part in Grease! She finds out on Wednesday. Oh, and I can’t forget the upcoming track party. See how I almost forgot it?

Right now, I just finished watching church online. I was a little sluggish this morning but the message was awesome so I am glad I tuned in. I really wish I had attended the live service though. The guest band was awesome. Anyway, I’ll be sure to attend in-person next week.

What am I reading?

Folks, I am a reading machine. I have reviews scheduled through June. Unheard of for me! I am trying to finish The Tenant of Wildfell Hall for book club this Thursday. It’s really good and I am enjoying it but it’s a little slow. The only thing that I sort of forgot, was my book tour for June (All Day and a Night). I plan to start it today, if possible.

All Day and a Night

What am I cooking?

I just made cinnamon rolls for the family and I made some sausage and eggs for myself. Of course, I also made loads of coffee and I am about to enjoy cup #3. Later, we may go out for burgers or order in.

What am I watching?

I picked up a $5 copy of Hot Tub Time Machine yesterday so I may throw that in to enjoy later. Right now, I am not in much of a mood to watching anything. I’d rather hang out with a book. It’s too pretty out to just sit in front of the TV.

Anyway, that’s my weekend. School is almost out. The Teen’s last day is this Friday and The Girl does not get out until June 17th but her camp starts on June 16th. Go figure. I know it won’t seem like summer with The Teen taking THREE classes this summer between independent learning and the local college but he has no choice if he wants to continue all his activities next year.

What’s your day look like?

  1. Congrats on obtaining a rest day AND having all those scheduled reviews! Enjoy!

  2. Here’s hoping this week goes a lot smoother for you, lady. I know from what I’ve seen here and elsewhere you need it. Enjoy what’s left of your weekend. I’m trying here also.

  3. Good Lord, it is amazing they get any vacation at all! So late to get out. But you are in the home stretch. We had drama last week as well, but all seems to have smoothed out now that school is done(ish). If you don’t count the summer assignments. I will think happy thoughts for the Girl’s Grease tryouts, and I love the Otter Pup’s photo bomb.

  4. It sounds like you’re a reading AND writing machine. I’ve read plenty of books but have so many reviews to write. One of these days.

  5. I am a fan of The Tenant of Wildfell Hall (and anything Bronte). I’m glad you’re enjoying it, and that you’ve been able to get a lot of reading done!

  6. I am all for resting! We ate doughnuts for breakfast…a rarity…but they were yummy! I read all day while Den caught up on Mad Men! Since eating two smallish yet yummy doughnuts for breakfast made us starving for lunch…Den ran out for barbecue…big pulled pork sandwiches…so…dinner is iffy! I have that book to read, too…it looks good!

  7. You get a rest day?!? I am SO jealous! I don’t think we have a free weekend until the 20th of June. Yikes!!

    Isn’t that a great feeling, having all of your reviews scheduled so far in advance? I’m working on July books starting today and just love not having to feel rushed to write the review upon finishing any book. I hope you keep up the schedule!

    Now, get back to your relaxing!

  8. Gorgeous weather weekend here. Sat on the deck and read, went for a walk and made homemade pizza:)

  9. You can watch church online? wow.

    Glad to hear you had a quiet weekend, time to relax. I am coming out of a stressful week with our son, a reorg at work, and BBQ for 50. Once I get through this week life should settle down.

    I have been reading your posts on my iphone :)…. but never remember to comment. Life has been super busy for you and I hope the girl gets a part in Grease!

  10. Sounds like a really good weekend for you! The Tenant of Wildfell Hall, I cannot wait to see what your book club and your review say. I had a busy weekend of graduation parties and one more day of a terrible work day…i just hope Tuesday is better

  11. I am glad you were able to enjoy a quiet weekend for a change, Ti. You definitely deserved it! My weekend was rather quiet too, once soccer and the park were behind us on Saturday. We did have to do a little grocery shopping on Sunday, but it wasn’t too bad. :-)

  12. I imagine y’all just collapse in a ball of exhaustion by the end of your days. Supermom–or something! I hope that everything goes well for the kiddos nearing the end of their school years and that the Teen is able to enjoy some of his summer. LOL!

    Reviews scheduled throughout June! I’m jealous! I only finished ONE book in May and it wasn’t even worth writing a post about. Hopefully we can at least finish some audiobooks on our roadtrip, but with a teething babe I think we’ll be listening to the symphony of squawking instead. ;)

    Have a great week Ti!

    • Pre-scheduling is a rarity for me. I just got fed up with all of my ARCs and wanted to get them reviewed and off my list.  I hope the trip goes well. I bet Elle will keep Evie entertained.

  13. I thought for sure you’d be clearing the decks for Mr. Mercedes! I’m actually most excited for Revival, but I’m pretty giddy over tomorrow, too. I plan to be at the bookstore bright and early.

    • I would love to clear the decks for Mr. Mercedes but it ain’t gonna happen. I had planned to just get it delivered to my Kindle but the teen reads King now so I feel as if I should purchase a hardcopy so I can share. That means a trip to the bookstore. I can do it after the doc appts tomorrow. 

      Also, I am more excited about Revival too. It seems more his thing but I could be wrong.

  14. Sounds like a great weekend… and I’m envious of having reviews scheduled. Seems like I can never catch up.

  15. Wow, I would love to have reviews scheduled through a couple of weeks, much less a month. You’re doing great! Also, SO glad that you had a great week/weekend! You totally deserve that.

  16. I hope your daughter received good news today!!

    My kids are still in school until the end of this week, all thanks to TONS of school cancellations this year. I’m ready for it to be done, but then again that means that I really, really need to start packing for our move later this month!
