Sunday Salon: Pre-Autumn

Sunday Salon

Hello! It rained all of yesterday which was lovely for sleep and relaxing. I spent it catching up to “Celebrity Masterchef” (UK) and watching The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel (recommended).

This week, I read Where we belong by Emily Giffin and Arabella by Georgette Heyer. Work was very busy this week so I was too tired to read towards the end of the week.

Today, I want to knit some more because I really want to finish this blanket. I am also rewatching My Neighbour Totoro. As for books, I have a lot still from the library including Venetia by Georgette Heyer, The Song of Achilles, The City of Dreaming Books, and more. Of course, I still need to start Gone with the Wind. At this rate, I may not start it until October.

The weather has gotten cold now, and I think it will stay this way. Now I can slowly take out my tights and fall skirts. What about you? Do you feel the change in the air where you are?

      Hey Laurel! You should see the movie. It was lovely and yeah, I also really enjoyed Where We Belong. I think it’s my favourite of her books yet. Thanks!

    There hasn’t been a change in weather yet though thunderstorms are forecast for tomorrow and Tuesday. I read A Song of Achilles a few months back and really enjoyed it. I hope this week includes more reading time for you.

    It’s rained a lot today where I am, but I have a bad feeling it won’t start cooling off in Florida for quite some time 🙁 Hope you get a lot of knitting done today.

      Hi Susan! It’s more drastic here in Ontario and the average temp today dropped almost ten points below the usual from last week. Glad you liked the movie too. Have a good week!

    I usually rather like the cooling effect of Autumn coming but unfortunately in the UK this year we didn’t really have a Summer to notice a difference! The only thing that has changed is the nights draw in quicker which jus encourages me to curl with a good book in the evening.

    I look forward to reading what you think of The Song of Achilles as I’d really like to read that myself.

      Hi Jessica! UK Summers are never long enough. It does make for cozy reading time. Yeah, hopefully I have time to read Achilles soon, but I am swamped with books, work and my other hobbies. Thanks for commenting!
