Sunday Salon

I don't know quite what today has in store, but I know I'll be baking a cake for my mother in law's birthday tomorrow, and maybe working on a crossword puzzle or something.

This past week was a blur, between some much-needed home repairs, nursing a cold and taking care of my sick cat. Actually this whole year has been a blur between one thing and the other! I have one contractor visit coming up this week, which I hope will be the last for a while.

As far as reading, my husband sorted out a bunch of his books last night and like me, has dozens of TBRs that needed organizing. He weeded out some manga that were claimed instantly when they went up on Bookmooch last night, and we found a few new Doctor Who books to add to his collection as well. I have a whole pile of books to send out in Bookmooch trades; I'll probably spend part of today packing them up.

Next week I'm starting a temporary project at a local archive- I'll be working on organizing some donations for a small internal library. It should be interesting and fun. All the bus rides back and forth will mean lots of reading time!

That sounds like a fun project. And high-five re: the bus ride. I miss Boston for its T. Atlanta sort of dropped the ball on that whole public transportation thing. It really cuts into my commute reading.

Bummer about your cold. Summer time colds really stink!

Have fun working on your project.

I keep thinking I will spend the day reading, but I get so distracted by the computer!

The project sounds like fun. I used to love riding the bus for that very reason - reading time! I hope you and your cat are feeling much better today.
