Sunday Salon


I've decided to revamp the Sunday Salon post! Mostly, because I'm not reading as much and since I'm not reviewing as many books...well, I need something to post, right? Plus I just like to get personal sometimes. So, here we go. 

Weather Small Talk:  Stupid Utah weather. It's been raining all week. Now I love me some spring rain but did the temperature have to drop 30 degrees? Sheesh!  Last Sunday I turned the AC on this Sunday I've got the furnace back on. 


On The Idiot Box: Still just watching Game of Thrones. Last week's episode was really lackluster. I'm hoping this week's episode is better. 

Weekly Reads: I Finished two whole books. Yay me!  I finished Cress and Lost Lake and enjoyed them both. I'm still working on Dune and am thinking of starting Elevated by Elana Johnson.

Crazy Kitties: Buns, my siamese is same old same old. She's getting old and I just realized the other day that she could die as soon as next year.  How sad is that? Belly is still crazy.  She loves to go outside but I only let her out when I'm with her and she doesn't think I go out enough. 

This Week: We hauled away all the trees we cut down. That was exhausting.  Then it rained and rained and I spent a lot of time reading. 

Movie of the Week: No new movies but I did see (for the first time) the old 70's version of The Exorcist. I didn't find it all that scary but I did appreciate that back then that movie probably scared the crap out of people. 

Food Talk: Today, as you know is Mother's Day. My mother in law is coming for dinner and loves peppermint pattys so I'm incorporating them in to a cake.  I hope it turns out ok. 


Plans For The Week: More yard work and reading.

  1. I have loved the rain. Though I agree, the change in temperature is not nice. The cake sounds awesome! You should take a picture! :)

  2. I remember the crazy Utah weather and don't envy you a bit! Of course, it's been doing nothing but rain here in SC for the past couple of days, but at least it's a warm rain. It's sad when our furbabies get old, but all we can do is make them comfortable and let them know how much we love them! Hope you had a great Mother's Day and your peppermint patty cake turned out yummy. :)

  3. I hate when our animals get old because I start dreading when they may pass away. I hope Buns stays with you for a LONG time.

    And, I didn't think the old Poltergeist was that scary either. I want to see the new one and see if it's any scarier. I hope it will be (but not too much because I'm a wimp.)

  4. Yay Cress! I really like that series, too. And I love hearing about all the stuff you're doing around your house. It sounds like so much work but it bet it will look amazing when you're all done. :)

  5. The Exorcist! Back in the day they used to put subliminal messages in movies. Supposedly they had a number of uber creepy subliminal messages behind an already scary-for-its-time movie.
