It’s still Sunday, right? I didn’t have a post ready to go this morning because I was too busy having fun last night. Normally, I put my Sunday Salon post together Saturday evening, but last night, Natalie and I were at my friend Lori’s house for a mother-daughter movie night. Natalie and Lori’s daughter, Kari, are best friends, and the four of us had a great time together. Lori went all out on a three-course fondue dinner, and we watched Snow White and the Huntsman. So fun to have some girl time.
The other big news at our house is that, as of today, Kevin has been tobacco-free for ten days! I am so very proud of him. It is such a hard habit to kick, and it has definitely not been easy.
In book news, I finished Lola’s Secret by Monica McInerney (there’s a link to my review at the bottom of this post) and Birthmarked by Caragh O’Brien in print (review on that one still to come) and Abdication by Juliet Nicolson on audio (also to come). It was a good reading week.
We went to church today, and then I’ve just been visiting with Mom and Dad and doing dishes, catching up, etc. I have some blog catching up to do, not only reading all of yours, but getting links to Ireland Challenge reviews posted. I got behind during the move, and people have been adding reviews to the Mr. Linky left and right!
If I get a chance to read, I’ll be spending my book time with An Unmarked Grave by Charles Todd and The Map of Lost Memories by Kim Fay in print. My audio time will be split between Daddy’s Little Girl by Lisa Scottoline and The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. I’m rereading the last one because I assigned it to Noah for 8th grade lit and he’ll be starting it next week. I wanted to refresh my memory on that one so I could discuss it with him.
We have a half day of school tomorrow and then are taking the rest of the week off. I’m looking forward to it – we jumped right into school after the move, and it will be nice to have some time to get other stuff taken care of. Then a big family Thanksgiving celebration on Thursday! Hard to believe it’s that time of year already.
I hope all of you are having a wonderful Sunday, and reading lots of good books. Feel free to leave a comment and tell me what you’re reading.
