Sunday Salon: August 21, 2011
I'm thinking about: Joining Weight Watchers. It is time
I'm listening to: The audiobook Boom! by Mark Haddon the author of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time. It was recommended to me by Sue Jackson, another blogger, and so far my family and I are really enjoying it.
I'm reading: Maine by Courtney Sullivan. It is the book club selection of the month. It is OK but I'm not sure we'll have a lot to talk about about during the club meeting.
Lists I am making: I am still working through a list of books which may make up my list of Mock Printz books for the workshop I hold in January before the actual Printz award winners are announced. I hope to read the books "Queen of Water" and "Blink and Caution" as other possible books for this list before I head back to school in September.
Today's Scripture in church: Acts 3:6-10. God's love is WONDROUS. My sister was the guest preacher and she did a great job.
I'm praying for: My nephew Jeffrey who continues to have troubles with the law.
Around the house: I'm getting cold feet about actually installing hard wood floors on the main level of the house.
From the kitchen: We've been grilling meat this week. I made chicken kabobs on Wednesday and Don grilled a flank steak yesterday. I love cooking on the BBQ.
Funny event: My siblings and our families helped our parents celebrate their 60th wedding anniversary by singing a rendition of the song "1951" by Bob Bennett. We rewrote the words to match our parents young life together several years ago and now some of those words don't work anymore. We all had a good laugh together.
Musical event: We had a musical week seeing the musical Les Miserables in Seattle last Sunday night and then today we went to a 17th Century musical program with my cousin's daughter, Erin, as one of the performers. Exquisite!
