The Sunday Salon was originally started in 2008, but over the years has grown too large to accept new members. They are now a facebook group and open to all.
What's Going On This Week...
I have been MIA from Sunday Salons posts since July. Busy summer, not as much reading then, and being lazy on these updates posts. A lot has been happening, great things. Work has been going well, been spending great time with son, family, and friends, and we took that fun trip to St. Augustine I was so excited about. Planning to do a recap post with pictures of that soon.
This week I have felt a little out of it for some reason - but have been participating in a Read-a-thon. Been hit by the Read-a-thon fever actually, have several of them coming up and in progress. Right now I'm doing the TBR Readathon, and in a few days starts the Fall into Books Read-a-thon.
What I'm Watching
We've been taking a break from TV. I'm anxious for my favorites to return in October. My mom and I were overtaken in July with Dance Mom Fever - we ended up watching all the seasons in addicted glee! We've started the Abby Lee Ultimate Dance Competition Season 2 on Lifetime App to fill in while waiting, good show too. And I've started Fear the Walking Dead, two episodes, not as good yet as The Walking Dead but worth watching.
What I'm Making
In the Sunday Salon posts when I was active, I was discussing making the bookshelves for the living room-library. This is almost done. The books are up, but we need to correct a few shelves, add a little more trimming, and do some odds and ends before I take pictures.
