Sunday Salon — December 15
Time: // 8:40 am
The scene: // Snowy and sunny. Eight squirrels cavort around the oak tree in the backyard. For some reason, the acorns are more attractive under the snow than they were laying on the ground last week.
Listening to: // Smooth Christmas Instrumentals on Accuradio.
Reading: // How to Hepburn by Karen Karbo, the first in the Kick Ass Women series that I enjoyed so much this year (How Georgia Became O’Keeffe, The Gospel According to Coco Chanel, and Julia Child Rules). I saved this one for the Christmas season to go with our annual viewing of Desk Set.
Blogging about: //
- Finishing the last half of The Signature of All Things by Elizabeth Gilbert in a day.
- The cozy comfort of Applesauce Bread Pudding.
Participating in: // The New Year’s Resolution Reading Challenge. I got the sign-up link post up on Friday. I still haven’t written my own sign-up, yet. Maybe this week. Or, I might wait until after Christmas to settle on my New Year goals and projects and the books to support them.
Looking forward to: // The first Twitter chat of the New Year’s Resolution Reading Challenge on Wednesday evening at #WSchat, hosted by Wordsmith Studio. Join us at 9PM Eastern / 8 Central / 7 Mountain / 6 Pacific / 5 Alaskan / 4 Hawaiian. I just posted the full calendar for all the Twitter chats this month and next.
What are you up to this fine Sunday?
Looks like a good book to have on hand to read a bit at a time.
I admired Katherine Hepburn, so that book looks good to me. Enjoy! Here’s MY WEEKLY SUNDAY/MONDAY UPDATES
I love Katherine Hepburn. I must look up this book. I hope you like it!
I can’t wait to read your review on the Hepburn book. I’m marking my calendar for the Twitter chat.I’m trying to pen my New Year’s resolutions so I can start on them now. I guess that means I’m starting the challenge now too! 🙂
The Hepburn book looks really interesting. Enjoy! Have a great week!
As usual, I’m up to about 5-foot-7 ;)…but reading-wise, I’m working on Indigo Slam, an Elvis Cole novel, by Robert Crais and on the TV front, I’m working on CSI: NY and Numb3rs. We have snow here too, mostly been shoveling this weekend when not reading and watching TV.
Time to reflect on the year and the previous resolutions and think about new ones. Wishing I could see squirrels and acorns sitting on snow to put me in the mood to do that! At any rate, I feel like I read much more this year than in the past 20 years or so, and Joy, you were certainly part of the reason. Not sure I’ll join this year’s Reading Resolution group since I can’t really participate in the chats, given the time difference, but I’ll be reading with you guys in spirit.
