The Sunday Salon November 14, 2010

The Sunday

* Wow the weekend is over already!

* I had an okay weekend. I read two books which is a miracle. This reading slump stinks. I hope to pull it together for a big finish. lol I joined a reading challenge where the goal is to finish books we absolutely want done this year. I also have a lot of reviews I need to get done.

* I am DNF two books. I hate giving up but I have been trying to read these a while and just can't make my way through them. They are The Smart Mama's Green Guide and The Disappearing Spoon by Sean Kean. I gave the Smart Mama book to a friend at work who is expecting. The Disappearing Spoon maybe I can go back too at a later date but it is really dry and I was expecting more from the description.

* I did some cleaning and organizing in my bedroom today. It always makes me feel better. I need to continue doing it to the kitchen too. I started but have not finished it. Anyway I cleaned out my desk and have a bag full of papers that need to be shredded. I got rid of pens and highlighters that no longer worked. I moved some things out and organized my papers into new folders. I also cleaned out my nightstand. Next I want clean out my hope chest and organize it. It has my stationary and recipes etc. in it.

* I need to start another book tonight for a blog tour that I forgot was tomorrow. It was rescheduled in my defense. I have also been working on my reading/blogging goals for 2011. I am not quite done yet but I will post it closer to the end of the year. I have two sets of goals, those and my personal life ones. I have been a little unsettled lately so I hope to be semi normal again and overall nicer. We'll see how it goes.

* First I am going to finish getting things ready for tomorrow and the week. I like to have everything ready to go in the morning. It is a lot less stress and saves time.

* I hope everyone has a great week and lots of reading time. :)

Hey, I'm bummed my book - Smart Mama's Green Guide - ended up in your DNF pile. I'm biased, but I do think it is a good book. Loads of advice for us all to reduce our exposure to toxic chemicals - including simply taking of our shoes. Reducing our exposure is important whether or not you are expecting or have young kids.
