books, knitting, food and whatever else I want to write about

Sunday Salon

Hello! This week, I read Pride and Prejudice & Zombies: Dreadfully Ever After, Love & Freindship and The History of England, and Death Combes to Pemberley.

I haven’t started anything in the last couple of days as I have been busy trying to finish this blanket I’ve been working on since May.

Today, I do want to start and read as much as possible in The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle by Haruki Murakami. This will be my first Murakami novel; I think I read a lovely short story of his once in an anthology or online and liked it. It’s taken me awhile to actually get down to reading one of his works though and I’ve also amassed a few for Kindle in the event my library doesn’t carry it out.

The weather is still sunny, but decidedly cool and not blisteringly hot like i was last month. I am beginning to feel glimpses of autumn. Indeed, I have been on the lookout for tan boots now.

I took a yoga class this week and it’s been a long while since I did that. I plan to knit more this week and I’ll follow it up with a wool festival next weekend perhaps.

What are you doing this Sunday?

  1. Oh, I love Murakami. Here’s hoping you catch the love too! Today I spent mostly dust-proofing the house before building work starts. It made me a little sad sealing up all the bookshelves. It’s okay though, I have a couple of weeks’ worth of books kept separate next to my bed. Have a good week!

    1. Hi Kate (can I all you that?)! I am loving it so far but I knew I would. He’s been on my TBR queue for years! I hope your organizing and cleaning went well. Have a great week! Thanks for commenting as always.

        1. Hi Kate! I already have that on the Kindle. I’ll see, I want to read as much as him as possible so I’ll leave that to be one of the later ones. Have a good day! Cheers.

    1. Hi Jessica! I’m spending a family day this weekend so I won’t be reading much either. We can get back into them together! Let’s check back with each other on it soon. I need to finish my blanket soon so I can block it in the sun and should do yoga once a week. 🙂

    1. Hi Susan! Murakami is definitely interesting but not for everyone, but his nonfiction is a bit different too. I like his prose so far. The weather is nice here, but I’m itching to start wearing my tall boots again. Have a good week!
