Sunday Salon: Another Snowy Sunday

Today it is snowy and cold here. When I got up it was still calm, but by the time we needed to leave for church, it looked like a blizzard outside.  Now we are hunkered down on the couches, napping, reading, and relaxing.

This is the view on Monday when I drove to work.  We've had a couple days like this lately. Not much fun to drive in.

What I Need to Get Done Today:  Lesson plans, cooking for the week, and finishing my class assignment for a class I am taking to finish up my ESL endorsement.

What I Spent My Weekend Doing: volleyball, volleyball, volleyball.  Middle Sister had a volleyball tournament all day yesterday.  Once again they are the tournament champions.  Last night we went to see the latest Alvin and the Chipmunks movie at the dollar theater with my sister-in-law and nieces and nephew. 

What's Coming Up This Week:  Our second book club meeting takes place tomorrow night. We are discussing Gretchen Rubin's Better Than Before, which seemed like a safe pick to talk about since the group is made up of people who don't know each other well yet.   Later this week is the State Wrestling Tournament.  My husband leaves mid-week since he is a high school coach and his team has four wrestlers who qualified.  Our plan is to join him for the weekend.

What I've Finished Reading:  
When Breath Becomes Air by Paul Kalanathi which was superb. I also finished up Sarah Smiley's newest collection of her column that is set to be published in April.  

I received four boxes of books from Baker and Taylor this week at school. So, even though I already have too much to read, I am enjoying looking through all of them and setting a few aside for me to read.

What are you doing today?  Despite the busy-ness of yesterday, today has been fairy relaxing.

Ooohh, that picture looks cold....LOL! Stay warm and hope your week is a good one. Aren't new books on a cart the best?
