The Sunday Salon - August 30, 2009

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

General Week thoughts: Logan (my oldest) had a great first week of school, he is excited and loves his teacher, loves being back with his friends and is falling into routine very well. Jacob (the youngest) is indifferent about school - mainly because he is in preschool and it's where he's been in daycare all along, and only cares about coming home to play the Wii each night. Both are enjoying separate story times in the evening. Jake picks out his book and Logan and I read Secrets of a Christmas Box by Steve Hornby which is very good so far.

My library reopened on Wednesday and I received the phone call that I had a stack of books. A happy girl I was. I missed the employees at the library and picking up stacks of books. Nevermind that I haven't read the three books I checked out at another branch last weekend. :)

Time spent reading - With school starting I thought my reading time would shrink, but between lunch at work, time at the gym and when I finally sit down in the evening, I have been progressing through my books well. Add in a pile of library books, review books and my own TBR pile and I really need to be making some headway
