The Sunday Salon #26

The Sunday

Listening To: The last of my cds being put onto the server.  Lots and lots of music to enjoy.  Now I can get rid of another huge box.  Plus, I sold some of my cds to Amazon.

Book finishedLiberty Defined; King Lear; The Maiden’s Hand — Slower week, but good page count.  950 for the week.

Reading: At the Queen’s Summons

On the Nightstand: Shakespeare, HP7,  and nonfiction from the library

Making Lists: Bloggiesta to do list.  I am finally joining in the fun this year.  I have a growing list (14 at last count) of housekeeping projects for my blog and books.

Around the house: I was struck down with a nasty cold this weekend, so not much is getting down.   I had wanted to clean and organize, but no energy.  Instead J and I watched a ton of West Wing.

On the Web: Remember the FrightFall Readathon is coming October 1-7.  Come and join the fun!

Crafting: During the week I caught up my scrapbooking just a bit more.  We’re to Spring 2012!  I need to print our spring break photos before I can complete the next phase.  I’m also debating about whether to put those in a separate album combined with my westward journey photos.  Hmmm…  decisions decisions.

I had signed up for a meet and greet card class today, but with my cold I decided to cancel.  I think the other ladies will appreciate not getting infected today.  Thankfully I have a class the week after next to look forward to.

Watching: J got me hooked on The West Wing.  We’re already in season 2.  I caught up on The Daily Show and Colbert Report’s coverage of the RNC and DNC.  I am losing hope for our country…  I’ve also been watching Grimm, trying to catch up to the current season.  I like the play on old fairy tales.  Finally, we acquired the DW season premiere, Asylum of the Daleks.  OMG that was good.  And now we have a whole season to look forward too…

Wondering: If Oswin Oswald will show up again, or just the actress playing a new character for the Christmas special?  (Doctor Who question)

Shopping Scores: While J was in Seattle meeting with Microsoft, I decided to go and browse at Barnes and Noble.  I’ve been trying to avoid bookstores, because I always go a little nuts.  I somehow managed to walk out with only one book, Sadie Walker is Stranded, that  I have been craving for awhile.  It will make an appearance during the FrightFall Readathon as I am doing an all zombie readathon.

I also embarked on the adventure that is buying plane tickets this week.  After perusing the sites, I found a flight for $570 flying San Jose to Fort Wayne.  Many other airlines were charging $740+.  I got excited, whipped out the credit card, entered tons of info, and hit buy.  Nothing happened.  An error message popped up saying they couldn’t complete my order.  Bummer!  I happened to be on Travelocity and hit the “flexible dates” button just to see what happened.  If I flew out of Fort Wayne a day later, I could get a ticket for $400.  Sold!  Thankfully this time it worked and I now have my tickets for Thanksgiving.  I’ll be there a few days before and a fews days after the boys get out of school, so I can help with the flower shop or hang out with old friends.

Project: I’m getting closer and closer to completing my Christmas cards.  Now I’ve started to think about gifts…

    It’s funny… I never watched it when it aired, even though I like politics. J has been bugging me to watch it for at least two years now. I finally relented, and I just love it!
