Sunday Salon — March 9
Time: // 8:52 am.
The scene: // Wispy early morning sunshine.
Listening to: // My Good Morning playlist on Spotify. I need the comfort of Yo Yo Ma’s cello and James Taylor’s voice on a morning when it feels earlier than it is.
Reading: // I took a break from all of my hefty reading about the Scientific Revolution. I want distracting material around the time change, so I picked up The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett. I can pretend it’s spring, like it used to be when the time changed.
Blogging about: // The Modern American Diet and how MAD it is according to the book Your Food is Fooling You by David A. Kessler.
Participating in// A bridal shower this afternoon. Here’s my gift, but I’m not telling you what’s in it in case the bride sees this. It’s kitchen-themed so we were asked to bring an ingredient and a recipe. Should be fun!
What are you up to this fine Sunday?
A very pretty gift package!
I hate losing this hour today. I’m already more behind than usual, just by changing the clocks. Today I’m going to a play this afternoon and I’m not sure how I’m going to like it. It’s called The Whale, and it’s about a man who weighs 600 pounds. (It’s part of our season tickets; otherwise, I think I might have skipped this one.) At least it’s sunny outside; spring is coming!
That is a lovely purple bow 🙂
I thoroughly enjoyed reading your review of Your Food is Fooling You and think I should probably obtain a copy for myself. I found the Chili’s chicken “secret” fascinating (and a disturbing).
Happy Sunday, Joy! 🙂
That bridal shower sounds like fun. I love The Secret Garden and now I want to reread it. I’ll wait and start on the first day of spring. Have a good day.
I love that idea of a kitchen themed gift with a recipe and an ingredient.
We gave our niece a copy of The Secret Garden a few years ago. One of my favorite books from my own childhood.
such a pretty package 🙂
I’ve never read The Secret Garden. I have a copy in my library though and it’s been on my list. I’ve seen and loved the movie forever!
I’ll have to check out Your Food Is Fooling You. I love truth about food. Now if I could just convince my tastebuds.
I check out Your Food is Fooling You after last week and you comment about it. Now to actually read it. I am attempting a lifestyle change by eating as clean as I can and rethinking convenience foods and eating out as often as we did. In the two months since I’ve started I’ve lost 16 pounds but I think more importantly I am starting to think differently about myself and about eating. I’m hopeful if you have lost 70 pounds that I can, too.
