Sunday Salon

(Link in meme-roll)

Time:
8:20 p.m.
Scene:
Sitting in the newly-rearranged living room surrounded by three men I love: husband, son and brother. All of us are online--Beast has two computers in front of him--and the Cavs-Warriors game is on TV, muted. The sky is finally blue for the first time today.
Today's plan:
We didn't do anything much today. I slept in, and then we all sat around and talked. Sparky went back up to the city where he went to college and played D&D with some friends. We talked to my sister and her husband, and then my other brother-in-law called so we had a three-way chat briefly. It was good. Pizza from P@ul##s for dinner.
Listening to:
Desultory conversation and the A/C just turned on. Oh, and the hum of electronics' fans.
Drinking:
Just switched over to plain ol' water for pre-bedtime to take my allergy meds with. Not that they're helping. I feel like death.
Blogging about:
Well, this.
Reading:
A Pleasure and a Calling (Phil Hogan)--cuhreeeepeeee, in a way only the Brits can be; The Sixty-Eight Rooms (Marianne Malone)--fun little elementary-age book; The Magician's Land (Lev Grossman)--just as I finally got into it, the ebook expired, so now I have to wait for three people to read it before I get it back....sigh; Alphabetical (Michael Rosen)--interesting book about the, uhm, alphabet; The Kite Runner (Khaled Hosseini)--I love the author's reading voice, but I'm not wild about the story; Back on Murder (J. Mark Bertrand)--ebook, slow, gotta know how it turns out, not a good book, but compelling; Jesus (James Martin)--haven't actually picked this up for a month or so, but I will eventually.

Yes, "all at once": three ebooks, one audiobook, and three four* old-fashioned paper books. Because that's how I roll. One book in the bathroom, one in the bedroom, one at work, and one backup in the bedroom. One in the car, one on my phone, and two on my Nook. They're all different enough that I'm not confused.
Giving thanks for:
Peace and family and not having to be 'fancy.'

* Oh, and there is another one I haven't added to GoodReads yet. I started The Bible's Cutting Room Floor (Joel Hoffman) on Friday at work.

New-ish, I think. I just found it a couple of weeks ago.
