The Sunday Salon #4

The Sunday

Listening To: More iPod shuffle.  Somehow I didn’t listen to much music beyond my commute to and from work.  I am liking Of Monster and Men’s new song.

Book finished: You are So Undead to Me by Stacey Jay; Undead Much by Stacey Jay; The Long Weekend by Savita Kalhan; Evermore by Alyson Noel; Blue Moon by Alyson Noel; Shadowland by Alyson Noel (DNF)

Reading: Palace Circle by Rebecca Dean.  I haven’t really read much historical fiction yet this year.  Since this was going into my giveaway, I thought I should read it first.

Making Lists: Trying to update my giant TBR list and spreadsheet.  I haven’t done a check for a few months now.  It really needs to be updated.

Around the house:  I hate cleaning (bathroom, dishes, laundry, floors), but somehow whenever I finish I feel better.  It’s a catharsis.

From the kitchen: Eating from the freezer.  It’s my goal to finish the freezer before leaving on vacation.  We still have many many great meals in there.  I absolutely love this process.

On the Web: Anonymous (group of anti-establishment hackers) have called for a media buying boycott for the month of March.  J and I have joined in spirit.  I think (wink wink) that we have enough media sitting around the house that we don’t need to buy anything this month.  My only problem was the release of The Hunger Games movie on March 23rd.  I’ll just have to wait until after our Spring Break vacation.

Weekly Quote:  “What is a weekend?” Maggie Smith as Dowager Countess on Downton Abbey

Crafting:  Making cards for March birthdays.  Just finishing them up, no real new projects.

Work Observations:   Apparently wishing people a Merry Leap Day kinda creeps them out.  Hee hee.

Watching: Downton Abbey (season 2), Castle, 30 Rock, The Guild (season 5), Bond, and some Stargate.  We watched a lot of tv in the past week.

Wondering: The design (or lack there of) of point of sale systems at various food service places and retail stores.  Guess what J’s new project is?  Now he’s got me noticing all of them every where I go.

From Nature: While states east of the Mississippi experienced severe storms and tornadoes, we’ve had beautiful, if a bit windy, spring like weather.  

Shopping Scores: I went shopping for my birthday and came away fairly disappointed.  I did find a pair of jean shorts and jeans for cheap.  And a couple of tops, but nothing too exciting.  I was really hoping to find brown pants and shoes.  Oh well… maybe next time.

Project: I spent some time getting my blog back in order (loose ends, updates).  I also got my scheduled posts for March all ready.  Now I just need to wrap up a few posts before going on vacation at the end of the month.

Picture: Completely forgot to take a fun picture…  Oh well, next week.
