Good morning! Sunday Salon is our time together to share about our weeks….and to contemplate what lies ahead.
It has suddenly turned really COLD here….and I know, compared to some, it’s not that cold. But I had to turn on the heat this morning.
Lest you think I’m whining, I do enjoy the briskness of the air in our winters. And I’m glad that the hot, hot days are behind us.
Yesterday I stayed home all day! Curled up, drinking lots of tea, and participating in various blogging activities.
At my Saturday Snapshot event, I shared about Christnases Past.
Here’s one peek into that album…I just love seeing the kids from years ago. This one is from 2006, of my youngest grandson on Christmas.
He’s almost ten, now, and still loves Christmas.
On Tuesday, I did a Potpourri post about feeling restless. And on my Hump Day Potpourri, I shared my thoughts on how to make cleaning fun. Yes, you read that right! lol
On Story Corner: In Accidental Moments Change Lives, I excerpted from An Accidental Life.
My Bookshelf Clearing Event from November yielded two winners.
Reading: (Click Titles/Covers for Reviews):
1. The Good Woman, by Jane Porter
2. Sugar Springs, by Kim Law
3. In Name Only (e-book), by Carol Kilgore
Each book engaged me, which made for a wonderful week.
Today I’m reading another page-turner: Chanel Bonfire, by Wendy Lawless. A memoir about sisters, a flawed mother, and survival.
Chanel Bonfire depicts a childhood blazed through the refined aeries of the Dakota and the swinging town houses of London, while the girls’ beautiful but damned mother desperately searches for glamour and fulfillment. Ultimately, Wendy and her sister must choose between living their own lives and being their mother’s warden—the hardest, most painful, yet most important decision each of them will ever make.
What does your day look like? I’m going to have some breakfast in bed and watch movies on my DVR.

I do like your breakfast tray, with lots of room for books! Have a good reading day.
I do, too, Harvee….and it can also hold a laptop (theoretically), but mine is too wide.
Thanks for stopping by, and have a great day.
Maybe you’re feeling restless because you have so many blogs. Have you ever thought about consolidating into one blog? Or at least a few less than you have? Just a thought. 🙂
Ha-ha! Would it surprise you that I downsized from 20 blogs to 11?
Consolidating is a lot more work than keeping up with the blogs…if you want to save things and match all the links, etc.
Each blog appeals to different aspects of my world….and I would be MORE restless without them…Did I hear you say DID? (Multiple personality disorder)?
Thanks for the suggestion, though, and for stopping by, Bryan. Enjoy your reading….

it is raining and warm here for December. Trying to put up decorations finally today! Thanks for stopping by my blog.
Enjoy your decorating, Lori…and thanks for stopping by.
Sugar Springs sounds really good. Have a great week!
It was a fun, light read with some serious issues…a good mix. Thanks for stopping by, Yvonne, and enjoy your week.
That’s an adorable picture of your grandson. I think having kids around makes Christmas so much more fun! My nephew always gets SO excited! It’s contagious.
Oh, I agree, Rachel….seeing the world from a child’s perspective can make everything seem new again. Thanks for visiting.
“had to turn on the heat.” — that cracked me up a bit. Good ole Calif. I’m headed there for Christmas … back home where I belong! Enjoy the holidays!
Yes, we are a bit spoiled here, with our mild winters. We make up for it with our hot, hot summers. Thanks for stopping by, Susan, and enjoy your holidays, too.
