Sunday Salon: March Madness

Sunday Salon

Hello, everyone!

This week, I read Flight Behavior by Barbara Kingsolver (review up tomorrow). I posted my finished Buttercup sweater and my usual Booking Through Thursday post.

Today, I plan on reading Stephen Colbert’s America Again. I went with my family to get some maple syrup and have a nice brunch. I have an alumni meeting this afternoon, but I hope to come home and do some reading.

I didn’t post last weekend as I was tired and recovering from my birthday drinks . Also, I haven’t been reading very much lately. I have been out and about everyday trying to be more social. It does not always work, but it’s been interesting as I am an introvert by nature. I am glad Easter weekend is coming up because I plan on reading Walden and other books in my large TBR pile.

This week, I made a filing system in my home office, and I am still not completely done spring cleaning. I’m rather pleased with my organisation and productivity this week.

Physical activity wise, I go to yoga at least once every other week and I am trying to run at least 1-2x a week now that the pavement is relatively snow free. I ran 6km yesterday, and I’m a bit knackered from it and my very active social week. Knitting and fiddle are on the back burner now that I am working out more. I am hoping to try rock climbing soon too.

Spring is not really here, but it’s not below -10 anymore and there is not so much snow so small victories.

Life is good, but busy as I am exploring new things. I just need to make sure I read at least one book a week until my schedule is more fixed and balanced.

How is everyone’s March?

      Hi Ali! I did enjoy Flight Behavior as I am a Kingsolver fan in general. I’ve knit over a dozen sweaters and it is really rewarding. I hope you get to make one someday soon. Have a good week!

    Walden was one of those books I read as a freshman in college – and didn’t really like. Perhaps I’d feel differently about it now, but I’m not particularly tempted to try. 🙂 Good luck! Hopefully you enjoy it much more than 18-year-old-me. 🙂

      Hi Rachel! It’s not the most engaging read in the world which is why I haven’t read much of it. I like it, but it requires more concentration rather than a read on the go. Have a good week!

      Poor Jessica! I’m use to long and cold winters, so it’s old hat for me. Bundle up and get ready for spring patiently. Have a good week!
