Welcome, Sunday Saloners! It’s been a beautiful week here, and April is winding down in a blast of spring.
The blossoms are out creating a magic carpet as they fall down on my patio and sidewalk. But that’s okay…I’ll overlook the mess and the assault on my nasal passages and enjoy.
Yesterday I was going to hang out with my grandson Noah, but then plans changed. I had lunch here, at Dai Bai Dang first, while reading my book.
That was an enjoyable hour. I was reading Love in a Nutshell, which is kind of a mystery and sort of a love story.
I should have kept reading! Because, when I wandered down to the theater and went in to see this movie…well, let’s just say I’d rather be napping. But I couldn’t, of course, since there was too much constant gunfire.
Let’s just say I didn’t feel “safe” enough to sleep through this one!
So onward and upward. In the mid-afternoon, I rescued Noah from boredom and we ended up hanging out. He’s still here.
Funny how days just seem to rearrange themselves.
My reading and blogging week wasn’t bad, either. I did the usual memes, and then I wrote Tuesday Potpourri: More Bookish Delights and Organizational Tidbits.
After working on my edits of Interior Designs for awhile, I posted an excerpt here at Snow Chronicles: Trying to Find the Bright Spot in a Sea of Heartache.
Now…Reading/Reviewing-click titles for reviews:
1. The Accidental, by Ali Smith
2. The Beginner’s Goodbye, by Anne Tyler
3. The Good Life, by Jay McInerney
So all in all, a successful week. Two of the books above were from the TBR piles that I have dubbed “Old TBRs,” meaning they’ve been on the stacks for several years. Some of them began their “life” with me more than five years ago and moved from the foothills with me!
My stacks are gradually morphing into something manageable. I’ve separated “old” from “new” and here are the old ones.
And the new ones:
Alas, the new stacks are growing by leaps and bounds. This week’s mailbox (see it later today at An Interior Journey) added nine books to the stacks! Some were purchased by me (but most were for Sparky, my Kindle); and others were review books.
Do you constantly rearrange, reorganize, and plan around your TBR stacks? What works for you? And what does your Sunday look like?
