Sunday Salon on Monday: Catching Up

This has been a busy week with activities in full swing. Wednesday was Little Sister's sixth birthday - a momentous event for her and something she has been counting down to for the past six months!

I am still purging more junk from my house.  There are bags of stuff waiting to be dropped off at Goodwill again and Middle Sister's bedroom is looking good. 

My friend Peaceful Reader has been asking me to join her in reading only ARCs for the month of September.  While I initially didn't think this would be possible because of my very large library stacks, I have set aside lots of books to go back to the library with intentions of checking them out at a later time.  While I might not read only ARCs this month, I am going to work really hard to get them under control.  I already finished one and am midway through another.

Last night we went to our neighbor's for supper - a wonderful meal of grilled salmon, steak fries, corn casserole and pie. The weather was beautiful as well, so sitting out on their deck after we ate and talking over a few drinks was the perfect end to the night.

Today, despite the fact that it is a holiday, we are planning on doing some work - cleaning our garage. I would love to curl up with Lisa Genova's new book, but sadly that doesn't seem likely.

Such a precious picture of your little one (who is not so little anymore)!

You have the new Lisa Genova book? I can't wait to read it. I've loved both her other ones. Hope this one is as good.

Yeah. I'm so excited that you might join me for a few ARC's!
