The Sunday Salon #19

The Sunday

High Summer Readathon at Seasons of Reading starts tomorrow!!!  Have you signed up?  Get on over there and get going.  I’ll be posting my goals early tomorrow morning and then diving into the reading.  Hopefully I will knock out one of my reading challenges during.

Listening To: Alex Clare — god I love his voice!

Book finished: The Sweet Far Thing; 12th Night; Carole’s Christmas; Blood Promise

Reading: Spirit Bound by Richelle Mead — the last book renewed my interest in the series.  I am sure I’ll be speeding through this one and the last book.

On the Nightstand: Last Sacrifice; Hater; Dogblood; Restoring Grace; Jemima J; The Wizard of Oz

Making Lists: Shopping lists; To do lists; Job Lists

Crafting: The boys and I did a scavenger hunt around the apartment complex this week.  I used one of my favorite stamps sets to crate cute clue cards with classic typewriters.  The boys just didn’t fully appreciate my craftsmanship.

I also squeezed in organizing my crafting area on Saturday and make a few cards.  For the two floral ones, I used the new Stampin’ Up 2012-2014 in colors and a sheet of some random paper that cordinated perfectly.  For the red and blue card, I wanted to try out a border punch I purchased months ago, but never tried.  I love the art deco feel to the pattern.  I need to figure out some other ways to work that in.

Watching: The boys and I almost finished series 2 of Doctor Who on our DW marathon day.  I did finally finish Weeds S7.  Crazy cliffhanger, like always.  And I picked up some girly movies at the library while J was away.  See I’m a super considerate girlfriend who doesn’t make him watch my sappy love movies.

Wondering: What to do about dinners next week?  I really really really hate cooking.  But we need to eat.  Must figure out meal plan.

Shopping Scores: Amanda Palmer just released her fall concert tour dates and she’s coming to SF in September.  I really really want to go.  The tickets just went on sale.  So now I’m off to get the credit card and buy me entrance to an outrageous night with Amanda Palmer!

From Nature: Chilly temps on the coast meant no beach trip this week.  It’s been beautiful here (like always).  I hope the coast warms up a bit.  I know the boys would love to head back to the beach before they go back.

Project: I’m try to finish planning the summer (only 2 1/2 weeks until the boys go back) and think about Thanksgiving and Christmas.  Plane tickets are already outrageous!

Picture: Best picture of the week hands down.  I have no idea why he was making that face, but it’s just so darn cute.
