It’s that time again—time to reflect, gather around, and share thoughts about books, etc. The Sunday Salon is our place to do just that. You know, that huge reading room in which we all gather to share events of the past week, or perhaps the past month.
Last night, after reading for a bit, I fell asleep. And then woke up with a jolt as sounds came though the wall. Thumping sounds. What? I glanced at the clock. Eleven thirty. What’s up with that?
Well, some people don’t sleep much on the weekends, I guess, but after awhile, I knocked hard on the wall and waited. The thumping gradually stopped.
Perhaps the interrupted sleep in its early stage set the tone for the rest of the night, since I then had a potpourri of crazy, “retro” dreams. Yes, that’s what I call dreams about events in the past.
The kinds of dreams where people from the past are in their previous incarnations, but the events take a new spin. They take off in completely new directions.
Like a movie spinning backwards and then changing when it gets to the middle.
So where am I going with this? I’m not sure, but my thoughts for today’s post are now all jumbled, which puts a new spin on how I should reflect on this past week.
For the most part, it was Kid-centric, with the grandkids in and out of my house. Fiona slept over, and we watched a lot of movies. On Tuesday, I took Fiona to my daughter’s salon for a new hairstyle. Here are some “before” and “after” shots.
Now for the “after” closeup.
She looks pensive in this one. Second thoughts? No, she says she’s day dreaming.
With kids coming and going all week, you can imagine that the reading and writing fell by the wayside.
I did a little blogging:
My reading was tepid-click titles for reviews:
1. Summer Rental (e-book), by Mary Kay Andrews
2. The Astral, by Kate Christensen
And that’s it….Today, I plan to keep reading this book:
Two Harbors, by Kate Benson
I received a HUGE stack of books in the mail this past week. They’re sitting on my desk awaiting Mailbox Monday, which will be up later today.
Did you notice that I haven’t mentioned my writing? Well, except for the posted snippets above, I haven’t touched my WIPs. One of the WIPs (Defining Moments) is sitting on the kitchen table. I need to make some changes to the beginning pages. Rewrites. GRRR. Am I dreading it? What do you think?
Interior Designs is out to two additional Beta readers.
Now I have to go post my updates on ROW 80…and admit that I’m a slacker…..
In adding up the activities of the week, though, I must say that I had fun. I even managed to get to the gym three times! And the two books I finished were great! What about the rest of you?
