Sunday Salon


Welcome to the new Sunday Salon. A weekly update post about my boring life. ;)

Weather Small Talk: Sunny but cold! Stupid deceiving weather!

On The Idiot Box: Quite a few shows weren't on this week for some unknown reason. Grimm was on, though, and I really like this show, but if they don't throw us some real story instead of filler I'm going to give up.  Any one else watching this one and agree with me? 



Weekly Reads: I read and LOVED Partials by Dan Wells and I'm still trudging miserably through Shade by John B Olson. :( I wanted and still want to like it but it's just not that great. Don't ask why I'm so determined to finish it. Just stubborn I guess.

Crazy Kitty: It was VERY windy all day yesterday and there were lots of scary noises....for a cat anyway.  

This Week: I had a stupid sore throat for most of the week that has now settled into a lovely sinus infection. It's making my teeth feel like they're going to pop out of my mouth. So fun. 

Movie of the Week: I saw Chronicle and I think I enjoyed it but I was so motion sick from the way they filmed it that I'm not sure. 

Food Talk: I'm trying really hard to live on a self imposed budget and since it's the end of the month the budget is gone. So, I've been eating what I have around and it's getting very sad. 

Soccer Sightings: My boys played today and won. (yay!) but for some reason they played at 4:00 PM which is 8:00 AM my time! Come on! It's the weekend! Of course I still got up to support them...shhh, no need to mention I would have been up anyway for early church. Anywho, I think the only reason they scored was because of pure luck. Check it out. It's only 10 seconds in so you don't have to watch the whole thing...unless, like me, you like to watch them celebrate. 


Music Discoveries: Again nothing "new" so I'll share some boring song you probably don't care to listen to. This one is rather weird but I've liked it since I first heard it years ago. If you like it let me know because I've yet to meet anyone that does. 



Plans For The Week: Wednesday night I'm going to Barnes and Noble to purchase my very own copy of Partials because the author will be there! Yay, another signed book. Did you know that will make this 32 books I have signed?

  1. Sorry you are sick. Hope you are lots better by Wednesday - I'm jealous of your book event. We have so few here.

    1. Thanks I'm sure I'll be fine by then. Most of our bookish events are local authors.

  2. I think I like the song. Were there no other goals made in the whole game? That was a real surprise to everyone, I think, even him. lol.

    1. Nope, that was the only goal. Yeah, I think the only reason he made a goal is because even the goalie didn't think a half assed back kick like that would go in. ;)

  3. Hope you feel better soon!

    Grimm is pretty good, and I'm a huge Monroe fan! Wish Nick would fully embrace his inner Grimm and stop being such a wuss though, and what's up with his girlfriend? Think they're going to either break up or she'll join him in his fight.

    Have a great week!

    1. I know! He needs to actually learn more about what being a Grimm means. I think his girl friend is some sort of supernatural something...mark my words.

  4. What does Reply Delete on my comment mean? It's weird.

  6. Sorry to hear you're sick :( It's going around the whole world from what I can tell. Probably the stupid sunny but cold weather. I am so jealous of your 34 signed books. So far, I have zero!

    1. Stupid colds. I haven't had one in two years. Sigh. Most of my signed books are from local authors. We're just lucky to have them around.

  7. I hope you feel better soon. You must be so excited to get a Partials book signed! You have a lot of signed books. How did you manage that?

    1. I'm very excited to get Partials signed since I liked it so much! Most of the books I have signed are from local authors that are always doing signings.

  8. yuck, sinus infections are the worst! Hope you feel better soon! And 32 signed books?! I am so jealous, how is it that I can't find any author events in my area, I mean come on I live smack dab between NY & Boston, someone has to pass through every once in a while!

    1. WTH?! You should have tons of authors doing something around there!

  9. 32 books is impressive! Also, my son loves the picture of the cat at the beginning of these posts. Is that actually your cat?
    I hope you feel better!

    1. I didn't know I had THAT many signed. I was a little shocked myself. Yes, that's my kitty, her name is Buns. Weird...I know.

  10. I like reading your Sunday Salon because I feel like it's the only time I get hear how you are doing. Well kinda. How bad is that? I guess I should pick up the phone more often huh?

    1. Yeah, and I should pick up the phone once and awhile too.

  11. I got Shade for review (I think - unless that's the second in a series; I got the first) and my son ended up reading and loving it but I couldn't get into it. Partials went straight onto my wish list after your review. You're so lucky to have so many author events near you! I'll be going to see Alex George, next month. Can't wait for that event!

    Sorry about the sinus infection. They're so miserable. Hope you get rid of that, soon.

    1. Replying to myself. I'm almost positive it was Powers or something like that, not Shade. Yes, I just love to talk to myself, really.

      Delete
    2. Now I'm going to have to go look stuff up because I think Powers might be by the same author.

      Delete
    3. I'm pretty sure we're talking about the same author. He used to be a twitter friend and he sent it to me. I was kind of embarrassed that I never managed to read his book.

      Delete
  12. Sounds like you have quite an impressive collection of signed books :)

  13. Oh no! I keep forgetting about Grimm! When I saw this show advertised I said, "I must watch that, it looks cool." Right, I'm off to find a TV guide so I can check when it's on.

    1. I hate when I forget about a show I wanted to watch.

  14. I completely agree about Grimm. I love the show and all the crime solving but where did the rest of the story go?
