Sunday Salon — March 16
Time: // 8:56 am.
The scene: // Snapped back to cold and rainy after several days in a row that were nice enough to walk without a jacket.
Listening to: // My Cheering up playlist including “Raindrops Keep Fallin’ On My Head:”
I just did me some talking to the sun and I said I didn’t like the way he got things done – sleeping on the job!
Reading: // My diversity book club had a terrific discussion about Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neale Hurston. My book review will be posted this afternoon.
I’m nearly finished with Cress by Marissa Meyer on my phone – I’ve really enjoyed that continuation of the Cinder and Scarlet series. Last night I started The Murders of Richard III, the second in the Jacqueline Kirby suspense novel series by Elizabeth Peters. That author is more well-known for her Amelia Peabody series, but I’m enjoying this one about a librarian sleuth. I’m still taking my break from the big books I was reading. I think I’ll get back to Quicksilver by Neal Stephenson today – something about a rainy day seems to suit a big book.
Blogging about: // Cabbage salad. Cabbage is cheap and plentiful around St. Patrick’s Day. Grab a head and try a cabbage salad with these tips for cutting, softening, and dressing cabbage salads.
Participating in// I’m looking forward to Bloggiesta, starting on a Thursday this month – the 27th. I guess I should write a sign-up post for that.
What are you up to this fine Sunday?
We’re back to cold and rainy here, too, but I’m going to try not to complain since it’s been so gorgeous.
I can’t wait to read your thoughts on Their Eyes Were Watching God. It’s a book that I’ve reread a few times. Glad to see you’re enjoying Cress.
Today I’m working mostly on my homework for a few classes.
Enjoy your day!
I love the idea of a Cheering Up list. Must check this out!
It works for me. I suspect every one is unique about what songs would be cheering, but I love my list and think everyone should create one of their own! I made mine after reading Your Playlist Can Change Your Life.
I cant wait for Bloggista also. I have wanted to read the Cinder series. I look forward to your review.
I LOVE Raindrops Keep Fallin’ on My Head! It makes me want to dance, because that’s what we did when the song first came out…back when dancing feet were faster. LOL
Enjoy your week…and Corned Beef and Cabbage sounds delicious to me right about now, but so does Cabbage Salad.
Here’s MY WEEKLY SUNDAY/MONDAY UPDATES
My niece sang Raindrops Keep Fallin’ on My Head at a school musical when she was little and it always reminds me of her.
We love cabbage so I’ll have to try your recipe.
I don’t know yet if I’m going to join Bloggeista this time around or not. I guess I need to hurry up and decide!
I really liked Scarlet, but haven’t read on in the series yet. I really must!
