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

Hello! It's been awhile since I did a Sunday Salon. I've missed it, but life has really gotten in the way. This weekend has been hotter than the standard here. I love that it's sunny and bright out, but I like to be in the shade or indoors in this kind of weather. It's relaxing so I like to read! I read one book yesterday and anticipate more day. I officially started my job this…

Hello, all! Since last Salon, I haven't had time to think about the blog very much. In fact, I didn't even know the comments were broken and a visitor kindly contacted me about it. Thanks, Susan! Yesterday, I finally did write a couple of posts on some books I read in May. I have a couple more posts to write then I'll have caught up for those posts. I am still not reading though. I've…

Hello everyone! It has been awhile since I did a Salon post or even blog. I have been very busy this month: ran my 10km, celebrated a birthday, worked a lot, socialized, and worked out. The last week was rough as I injured myself so am resting my leg and a bunch of other silly annoying things happened. I'm glad it was done with. Yesterday, I ended it by watching the new Veronica Mars movie.…

Hello, everyone! I have not been reading very much lately. I've been too busy and tired to read most days. Some readers like to read to unwind, but I am really active and like a book to take me away for hours and hours. Time of which I do not have lately. As for my book of today, I am still undecided. I could read my Classics Spin book (Kim by Rudyard Kipling), but I…

Hello, everyone! It's been a busy time for me, both with work and personally. I have been recovering from this cough that I've had for a month. It was very cold earlier in the month, but we had a milder week. Still, I've felt a touch of the January blues with my work load and personal responsibilities. Today, I am going to read John Green's The Fault in Our Stars. Yesterday, I went on my…

Happy Sunday! It's been a few weeks since my last Salon. Actually, I've become quite busy lately. I am too tired and fatigued to read on the weekdays, and I must run errands or have social engagements on the weekends. I have managed to read at least one book per week, but just barely. Today, I am reading Marsha Altman's P&P sequel The Darcys & the Bingleys. I really should be reading my Classics Spin…

Hello, everyone! It's the first long weekend of the summer, and I haven't done much. Poo. I went to a tulip photo spree on Tuesday. Usually, I do not take a lot of flower photos, but tulips are one of my favourite flowers and are omnipresent this time of year. May is one of my favourite months. This week, I read and watched War Horse (review up tomorrow). Today, I am going to read Gail…

Hello, everyone! It's been a couple of weeks since my last Sunday Salon and I've read a number of books including: The Brief Encounter screenplay, If On A Winter’s Night A Traveller by Italo Calvino, Where’d you go, Bernadette by Maria Semple, and The Woman Who Died A Lot by Jasper Fforde. I've posted some more knitting posts as well. Today, I'm reading The Best America Travel Writing 2008. After this, I have a few…

What’s your favorite hobby OTHER THAN reading? - BTT Probably knitting, but I have a lot of other hobbies now that I've cut down on so I can balance them out. So the more "active" hobbies include reading; knitting; blogging/writing (which ties into the first two); TV & movies; working out which includes running, yoga and just after yesterday, muay thai; and photography. Even the last one I don't do as much, but will hopefully…

This past week, I finished Walden, Don't Judge a Girl by Her Cover by Ally Carter, and the Brief Encounter screenplay. Both of the latter will be tomorrow and early in the week. I have been very busy the last couple of weeks working two jobs and still trying to find time to do some of my hobbies and socialize. As a result, reading has been put off. Today, I do plan on reading some…

Happy Easter to those who celebrate it! I never really got this holiday, religious wise or chocolate wise so the only thing I personally like about it is the extra long weekend. This week I posted my reviews of Flight Behavior and America Again. This weekend I've been busy of course. I made a hat for a friend on Friday, ran about 6km yesterday, have been reading some Walden, and just now, I baked some…

After a long time, I have completed the Couch to 5Km running plan on my fourth attempt of the plan. I've been interrupted by laziness, injury, laziness, sickness and more laziness, I'm done! I haven't run (and probably been fit) like this in years. The last week of the plan was not that fun. I had some inconsistency in the last couple of weeks so it may have contributed to the sheer boredom and fatigue…
