The Sunday Salon – October 26, 2008

It’s been a really nice weekend even though I haven’t gotten a whole lot accomplished. Last night one of my daughter’s classmates invited her over to see his Halloween decorations. It was a nice little party. She had a good time and so did I. My husband and son came home from Six Flags exhausted but they had fun too.

Today, we had planned to do something like hit a museum or zoo but my son just woke up (11am) and now I feel as if half the day is gone. We will head out for some lunch and then probably pick up some pumpkins as I have yet to do that. I’m also cooking chili in the crock pot for dinner. The house smells wonderful. Mmmmm.

While I was waiting for everyone to wake up I picked up Creepers, by Joanne Dahme. I won this book from Booking Mama and Geri over at Running Press. It’s a YA book but I am enjoying it. Just the right amount of creepiness for this pre-Halloween weekend.

What’s on your plate today?

Happy Saturday! It’s like summer here today. My husband and son went to Six Flags while I stayed with Kidlet #2. We went to lunch and then headed to the bookstore. We missed story time but we didn’t care. Outfitted with my free cappuccino and a sugar cookie for the Kidlet, we headed to the children’s section.

We spent a few hours reading all of the books that caught my daughter’s eye but there were so many books that I wanted, that I didn’t walk out with any of them.

As I was typing this, I just heard my daughter coloring with a marker and lo and behold…guess what she was doing? Writing in the new book I JUST BOUGHT HER. Not happy about that! Planned to say a few more things but that will have to wait a bit.

Chatting with friends about books and life…
