TSS: A COZY & BOOKISH WEEKEND — JAN. 27

sunday salon logo

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAGood morning!  It’s time for another Sunday Salon, so let’s gather around, grab some coffee (or tea), and chat!

I’m feeling cozy and bookish today.  Yesterday I visited the neighborhood Barnes & Noble, and after reading for awhile and sipping their wonderful coffee, I meandered over to the bargain table.

And walked out of there with two new books!

I’ll talk about those tomorrow at Mailbox Monday, which I celebrate at my blog An Interior Journey.

Yesterday’s Saturday Snapshot took my readers through the 70’s and 80’s, Laurel-Rain style.

Here’s a favorite of mine:  my daughter’s first canopy bed.  I loved the posters all over the walls!

TSS: COZY, RAINY DAYS — JAN. 22

Good morning, Sunday Saloners.

Welcome to another day to talk books, chat about our blogs, and share snippets of our lives.

Today was a rainy day here, but not the stormy kind of day.  Just a light, gentle sprinkling that encourages me to curl up and read.

Noah was here, and curled up with his video games.  We watched a movie, too.

A Good Day to Curl up and Read

This past week, I finished my usual number of reads, but one of them was a chunkster from my TBR stacks!  How pleased was I.

Even more so, since it was a delightful read that seemed to breeze along.

I did a little blogging, too, in addition to the usual memes.  Here are some of the posts:

Sunday will be more reading, a little writing, and some movie watching.  I’m curious about this movie that I saw on On Demand.
