The Sunday Salon - August 23, 2009

The Sunday Salon which is hosted here, go and visit and see other participants.

General Week thoughts: A good week - it's my oldest son's last week of summer vacation. He spent most of the week with his Gran and Papa and even spent a night at a friends. We started reading Secrets of a Christmas Box by Steve Hornby together this week and I look forward to really getting into it next week when he is at home every night. The little one wants to get involved too, but we'll see about that - he never seems to have much attention span so I reserve reading Don't Let The Pigeon . . . or If you Give a Pig a Pancake books for him and the chapter books with the oldest. DH has been helping out around the house and with supper so that left me a few nights to relax in my chair and read - that was great. We did swimming this week and that was fun too.

Time spent reading - I spent the first part of the week reading running books and then magazines (in an effort to get some of them read and out of the house). Then the end of the week hit and my fiction reading came back into play. I raced through Club Dead and finished up Vision in White and Confessions of a Jane Austen Addict.
