Sunday Salon: August cool down

Sunday Salon

This week I was productive in my reading: finished Mansfield Park, Shades of Milk and Honey and Lady Susan.

I am half way through Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: Dreadfully Ever After. It’s OK; I could have finished it yesterday, but I opted to read and watch things instead. The weather has cooled down significantly this week so I am back to knitting. Also, I read a lot this week. I will finish it today and the review should be up tomorrow.

Since I have read on four of the books I intended to read for Austen in August. I only now have to read Love and Freindship and PD James’s Death at Pemberley. I have decided not to read Jane Austen: The World of Her Novels by Deirdre LeFaye; I have too much to do this month and want to go back to reading some other things. I will put it in my TBR queue for after the reading challenge. I also recommend it; I skimmed through it and it looks like a very good companion to Austen’s works.

In other news, I need to knit & spin more as well as watch some of my backlogged movies & TV. I will perhaps post on the latter some Sunday Salon as well. I bought a new yoga mat yesterday because I’ve signed up for some classes. It is very expensive to join gyms and classes so I could only do so through group deal sites. I hope to be more active again in the autumn.

Even though there are a few more weeks of summer left, the weather is cooler and when September gets ever close, I just think of fall. It’s my favourite season in Canada, and I’m already thinking about my wardrobe for it.

What are you doing this August weekend?

      Hi Deb! We had Texas-almost weather in July and I didn’t have a/c so I couldn’t knit all month. Now I’m doing catch up. Thanks for commenting. Have a good week!

      Hi Susan! I was already watching less Olympics in the second week so I did get some reading in. I am reading a lot, but most of the books are short so they are manageable. I need to catch up on some TV/movies and knitting though. Thanks for the comment! Have a good week.
