Sunday Salon

The weather is beautiful and crisp today - and we have finally decided to turn on our heat to get the chill out of our house. I have had a fairly free weekend, which should mean lots of free reading time Instead, I have started and abandoned several books and have a large stack to take back to the library. Perhaps someday I will pick these titles up again, but for now, I have so many books that I own and cannot get to, and that are checked out that I just can't read them all. I have just started Elin Hildebrand's latest book and my TBR stack is still enormous, but it is rather cathartic to do a little cleaning out.

This afternoon I will be going with my girls, my mother, and my niece to a production of Roald Dahl's BFG. I know one of the actors in the play which will make it interesting, but have never read this book. I had high hopes of reading this to my daughters, but we are still working our way through the Ramona books and ran out of time to read this prior to seeing the play. Perhaps we will be motivated to get into this one after today's show.

It definitely feels like fall here this weekend. I bought some apple cider and made pumpkin bread yesterday morning which would be a perfect evening snack tonight. Tomorrow it is back to the rat race, and what looks to be a rather busy week.

Hopefully I will get out of my reading slump and get into a book I just can't put down - I'm in the mood to read something great.

Fall is a good time to sink into a book. Hope you find something that hooks you soon!
