Sunday Salon 10-16-11

Special Event of the week: Sister Helen Prejean (author of Dead Man Walking) spoke at my parent's church this morning. She is an advocate against the death penalty. Her talk was passionate, inspiring, and convicting. I am a great admirer of her ministry and her efforts on behalf of loving compassion and forgiveness.

I'm listening to: Bossypants by Tina Fey.  She is very, very funny and I am enjoying this book in the audio format. My husband I and listened together on our trip to Oregon for the football game this week-end.

I'm reading: Everybody Sees the Ants by A.S. King. I have NO IDEA where this story is going. I am enjoying it though.

Book reviewed this week: The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making by Catherynne Valente; Karma by Cathy Ostlere; Paper Covers Rock by Jenny Hubbard

Scripture lesson in church: Micah 6:8- What does the Lord require of you? To seek justice, love kindness, and walk humbly with your God.

Around the house:  We drove to Eugene this week-end and attended an Oregon Duck football game.  This is one of the most fun things that my family does together.

From the kitchen: My sister made the most delicious olive and mushroom quiche with Swiss cheese. Yum! I must get the recipe.

  1. I really must get Tina Fey's book and now the audio is sounding very temping! I can't wait to hear what you think of Everybody Sees the Ants. I have no idea what it is about, but it's getting good reviews
