Sunday Salon...Feb. 3rd
Weather: Foggy, again! This is the foggiest winter I remember. Ugh.
Yesterday: My husband and I went to see the movie Argo about the rescue of six American diplomats hiding in the Canadian embassy during the Iranian crisis in 1979/80. It is very well done and thrilling. The night before we went and saw The Hobbit. We joked that we should go to another movie today but there is a football game on this afternoon...
Today: I finally cleaned off the guest bed which had been cover with Christmas wrapping paper and bows. Don removed the lights from outside the house yesterday. Now if I get around to removing the wreath from the door we'll have all traces of Christmas finally put away.
This past week: This past Monday was not only the first day of a new semester it was the Mock Printz Workshop after school. Nearly thirty students showed up to discuss and vote for their favorite books of the past year. It was very stimulating.
Currently reading: In Darkness by Nick Lake. This was the actual Printz Award book this year. It wasn't on many lists so I am sure that I am not the only one who was surprised that it claimed the highest honor.
Currently listening to on audiobooks: A Mennonite in a Little Black Dress: a Memoir of Going Home by Rhoda Janzen. This is a book club selection.
Completed this week: Railsea by China Mieville...this was a REAL challenge to read to its completion. I ended up enjoying this steampunk-meets-the-future story but it took over 150 pages of reading until I thought this.
From the kitchen: Did I cook this week? I don't remember. The whole week was a blur.
I think I'll take a little nap before the Super Bowl. Bye!
