The Sunday Salon: Currently, April 8 Edition

The Sunday Salon.com

Time // 3:20 p.m.

Place // At my desk in my home office/library/cat playroom.

Eating // Nothing yet. I’m getting ready to start cooking Easter dinner for the boyfriend and I — ham, baked potatoes, fresh green beans and breadsticks.

Drinking // Bigelow Tea’s Lemon Lift.

Watching // I spent all morning getting caught up with Grey’s Anatomy, Community, and The Office.

Reading // Butterfly’s Child by Angela Davis-Gardner for a TLC Book Tour. I wasn’t sure if this would be quite my kind of book, but so far the pages are just flying right by.

Wanting // An extra day in my weekend!

Thinking // About when to start dinner, which blogs posts I’m going to submit for the Independent Book Blogger Awards; if you’re planning on/thinking about attending Book Expo America, you should check these out.

Listening // To “Somebody That I Used to Know” by Gotye, featuring Kimbra. The video is a little strange, but I’m obsessed with this song.

Creating // Nothing for the moment, although I did have my own personal Bloggiesta over the weekend and managed to get almost caught up on reviews and adding links to my review archive.

Hoping // That I can find time to respond to comments this afternoon before I need to start making dinner. Also, that I can find some motivation to get back to running this week.

Needing // Hannah to calm down just a little bit. It must be the full moon or something, but she’s been on a rampage the last couple of days.

Anticipating // Work tomorrow. I have a big-ish story that I need to get working on right away tomorrow morning. It’s been hanging over my head all weekend (boo!)

P.S. If you’re looking for some good book-related reads in the next couple days, I suggest James W. Hall’s “Beware Literary Snobbery: Why We Should Read Bestsellers” and Tom Cox’s “How to reorganise your bookshelf using the honesty system.” Both gave me a little something to think about this morning.

      I loved that one! It made me want to perhaps reorganize my bookshelves, but I’m not sure I’m up to it at the moment.

    Sounds like a yummy dinner! Enjoy the rest of your night!

    Dinner sounds good! (I’m not cooking.) Good luck choosing the posts to submit for IBBA–I enjoyed picking mine :-).

    And I think you’d get a lot of takers for that extra day in the weekend!

      I had fun picking mine too. It’s always fun to scroll back and find posts that you’re proud of to share with others again.

    I’m LOVING the Gotye song. Loving. But with you on the strange video.

    And yes, please–an extra day in the weekend would be AWESOME!
