Sunday Salon 8/23

My boys and I spent the week in California with my mom. We left Dad at home to work and although we missed him a lot, we went to the beach, and a baseball game. We went to the zoo and the science center. They played with cousins and I visited with my sister and my mom and saw old friends.

I brought 6 books with me. They stayed in my suitcase. In fact, I'm still reading the two books I had started last week before leaving.

You will note some FIRST Wildcard posts that don't have accompanying reviews. I'm behind on reviews and I hate that. If I've committed to review a book by a certain day, I do it. I have over 1000+ posts in my Google Reader, and I haven't visited any blogs this week. But, I had a lot of fun with family and friends.

School starts this week and while I love having my boys home, and while we managed a fun summer, I'm ready for structure and some time to myself! I'm looking forward to a routine that allows me some uninterrupted reading time, among other things.

How was your week?

  5. For me fall feels like a new beginning...even better than Janurary. It is a great time for new plans and goals now that the busy summer is over. I am looking forward to fall. Maybe I will find some time to read again.
