Sunday Salon - Lots To Do

Today looks to be pretty busy, but I'm starting slow by icing my foot; I have tendinitis and I'm supposed to ice it two or three times a day, so I'm interpreting that as breakfast, lunch and dinnertime. I have a fairly busy day ahead; brunch with friends in a while, and then my husband and I are attending the 2010 Hemingway & Winship Award Ceremony sponsored by PEN New England; it's being held this afternoon at the John F. Kennedy Library in Boston. I'm very excited!

And reading? Yeah, I'll be doing some of that, too. I'm still working my way through Frank Delaney's Venetia Kelly's Traveling Show and I'd like to start Jonathan Keats' The Book of the Unknown: Tales of the Thirty-Six, a re-imagined Jewish folktale about extraordinary or special people.

I also have a lot of work to do on the blog today, because I have some good things coming up this week, including an interview with comics artist and author Steve Sheinkin tomorrow, a virtual Valentine to author Ian McEwan for Tuesday, to celebrate the release of his latest novel, Solar, and a post for Wednesday about book collecting, a sort of follow up to one I did a couple of weeks ago. So I hope you have a great Sunday and I hope to see you back later in the week!

Chag Sameach to my Jewish readers- have a lovely Passover!

Here's a photo of my office assistant, doing what he does best:More Sunday Salon here.

Love that photo! Too funny. Hope your foot is feeling better, and I'll be looking forward to what you have planned for us this week.

I became allergic to cats about five years ago when I had one kidney removed. I had always owned long haired cats and it made me so sad! I love seeing pictures of your beautiful assistant! Sounds like you have a fun day ahead - me, a little reading and some heavy cleaning - it is floor day.

What a great job your office assistant has! :--) Cleaning for me today too, and maybe finally finishing Stone's Fall - it has been a slog for me!

Yes I also have one of those office assistants. The type that also double as an alarm clock around 4 am.

I keep telling my husband that I need an assistant like that!


I'm hosting a giveaway on my Sunday Salon post today. I plan to give away two $10 gift cards to Amazon on Easter Sunday. I hope you will stop by and sign up!

Sorry to hear about your foot! Take good care of it for awhile. Your office assistant looks very comfortable there. I hope you have a great week, and I look forward to your upcoming posts!

Cute assistant! The Jonathon Keats collection is great! I really enjoyed even though it's so different from what I usually read. Happy reading and have a great week.

I'm reading the Delaney book, too, sort of. I'm so glad to hear you've been enjoying it, because I read the first 2 pages on a night when I wasn't in the right frame of mind for it, set it down, and haven't picked it up since. You've inspired me to get back to it! (And also, to pick up another McEwan book).
