The Sunday Salon: This and That

This day flew by for me. The Hub had to work so I was on my own with the kids and that meant the usual distractions (homework, messy rooms, a pile of laundry, and bickering siblings). All in all, a typical Sunday! Even with the rainy weather,  my daughter and I took a long walk and managed to get home before it started to really pour.

Right now I am preparing dinner and reading snippets of The Hunger Games in between pot stirring. I am also watching Cinderfella, a Jerry Lewis movie from way back. My kids have grown to love his movies. They get such a kick out of his antics. I do, too. It’s a nice change from Hannah Montana and Wizards of Waverly Place.

After dinner, I plan to read a bit more but not for too long because the premiere of 24 is tonight. Jack is back! I hope this season is better than last season though. I’m hoping for a lot of action this time around. Last season was a bit of a snooze.

Anyway, hope you all had a lovely Sunday. Southern California has 6 days of rain ahead of us so we’ll see how this affects the burn areas as well as traffic. I’m off tomorrow so one more day of relaxation and then back to work I go.

The Sunday Salon: What Happened to Winter?

Today has been incredibly gorgeous! Blue skies, warm temps, a slight breeze…just wonderful. I spent a good chunk of the day outside on the patio with a book in my hand. I spent another chunk looking for my daughter’s lost scarf (sentimental value and all) which included digging around in an Office Max dumpster because the manager, although he admitted to finding it, refused to open a drawer to see where his employee put it. Needless to say, we are “scarfless” and could not find it. My daughter is crushed.

Oh, you’d like to know what I’ve been reading? Well, I am still reading The Things That Keep Us Here, but I have some issues with it. I was looking forward to reading it, but so many things irk me about it. Perhaps it’s because I got a really early ARC of it? I’m about halfway through so hopefully it will redeem itself. Hopefully.

Right now, I am waiting for our Chinese food FEAST to arrive. As you know, I am Game On‘ing it and this is a meal off. I cannot wait for it to get here. I am so darn hungry.
