Sunday Salon - February 19

Screech - that's the sound of what happened to my reading in the past three days. I had two books going and planned to have both of them done by the end of yesterday. Then my mother-in-law arrived for the weekend. Usually we spend a lot of time around the house but this weekend we have been busy. While we've done a lot of fun things, I've only had time to read about 70 pages. Today I will finish both of them because I've got other reading to get started on.

I'm joining in a readalong that I want to get started on (more on that later this week) and Trish of Love, Laughter, and a Touch of Insanity and I are going to be reading Erik Larson's In The Garden of Beasts together. Assuming I can find my copy. Did I loan it to you? UPDATE: Found it! My hubby had stuffed it under his night stand when he was done with it. Who does that?

Friday night we went to spend time with three of my favorite people. It was wonderful to watch the original Mama Shepp with her newest great-grandson. I can only hope that I live long enough to literally get to bounce my great-grandchildren on my knee like she got to do!

Last night we went to see George Clooney in "The Descendents." It's an excellent movie; I highly recommend it. Did I mention that it stars George Clooney? Ahhh - that man is no less good looking as he's gotten older!

This coming week I'm looking forward to a book club meeting, a get-together with old work friends and an Oscar watching party - that's an awful lot of socializing for me. I'm definitely going to have to shut myself in my room and spend a couple of nights reading in a quiet place! What are you reading this week?
