Sunday Salon - January 13

Boy am I ready for this week - it means that last week is over! The Big Guy's mother has been in the hospital since last Monday and Mini-me moved this weekend. I'm not sure what this week will bring but at least it's a fresh start. Hope you've all had a good week!

Here's What I'm:

Listening To: I've been releasing my inner rock chick this week, partly because of more car time with Miss H, partly just to relieve stress. Sick Puppies, We Came As Romans, The Used and even some Limp Bizkit on my way home from work the other day. I refuse to worry about what the people in the cars next to me thought about that one!

Watching: A "Live From Daryl's House" marathon on Palladia on Friday. Found some interesting artists that were new to us.

Reading: Persuasion by Jane Austen for a readalong, Jennie Nash's latest Perfect Red, and I might just start Les Miserable this week and try to play catch up on another readalong.

Making: Breakfast for supper. Mini-me moved yesterday and I fed the moving crew pancakes and eggs. I know, I know, it's not the usual moving day meal but I had to. The first time Mini-me's old roommate ever ate dinner with us we had pancakes and for some reason it turned into a big joke between us.

Planning: Stripping down the Christmas decorations and the first of the year always inspire me to do some rearranging and reorganizing and this year is no exception. Some of what I want to do is going to require The Big Guy to move some wiring - that's going to take some major sweet talking!

Grateful for: The support of family and friends this week.

Loving: Special K Cracker Chips. Miss H and I are working on eating better and you get to eat a lot of these little babies for only 110 calories. Plus they taste good, always a key to helping convince me to pay that extra money that diet foods cost.

Looking forward to: Book club this week. I hope that some of the ladies took the time this month to read the book, Don't Let's Go To The Dogs Tonight by Alexandra Fuller. So much to discuss and I purposely picked something that was quick and not too long.

What are you looking forward to this week? 


  1. Didn't know about those cracker chips - I'll have to check those out!

  2. I love the book Let's Not Go To The Dogs Tonight! Interested to hear your book club's thoughts.

  3. No wonder you were ready for last week to be over! Hope your MIL is getting better and that Mini-me is all settled in!

  4. One of your boy's is always moving! :) Keeps you busy.

    Do you like ricecakes? They come in so many flavors now, I have sweet chili the other day... something like 12 for 35 calories.

    Tomorrow I'm going to Notting Hill, Portobello Market (google it) and to a bookstore. SO excited!

  5. I'm all for fresh starts! I'm working on that myself. Glad things are settling down.

    Don't feel bad about Les Mis...I'm behind too! Hoping to be caught up by Tuesday. I'm liking it so far, but not really far enough in yet. I'm adoring Persuasion, of course.

    Have a great week, Lisa. =O)

  6. Les Miserable!!!! Oh how I love it so so much. You're reading it with Hannah, right?

    And wow--I'm impressed by the music. I don't know who all of the artists are but my mom would definitely classify it as acid rock (though she is older than you are...).

    Hope all settles down with your mother-in-law. Sounds like quite the scare.

    Thinking I might borrow this template from you (Suey does something similar). I just can't get a post out of me for anything...

  7. What am I looking forward to? The three-day weekend. LOL.
