Sunday Salon - April 7

It's spring, it's spring - and we have football! I'm not sure how many other colleges are able to charge people to come watch the final spring practice of the football team but here we shell out $10 apiece to have a look at the new players, see our old favorites and start to get excited for football season.

Here's What I'm:

Listening To: I happened to catch "Guys and Dolls" on TCM the other day so I've been back on a musicals kick this week. A Twitter conversation about singing songs from musicals as lullabies only made me want to listen to them even more.

Also, "Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me" on NPR. Smart and funny. Really I love the entire Saturday morning on my NPR station.
Watching: "Forget Paris" with Billy Crystal and Debra Winger. I can completely overlook this movie's flaws because there are just so many things in it that make me laugh out loud. Like the scene where Winger has a pigeon stuck to her head.

Reading: I downloaded two books to my Nook this week, finally. I've finally started The Windup Bird Chronicles and will be playing catchup with the readalong gang. I'm also starting The Wordy Shipmates for book club this month. I've been wanting to read both Murakami and Vowell for a while so this should be a great month.

Making: Progress on finding homes for all of the things we brought from The Big Guy's mom's apartment.

Planning: Family history scrapbooks for The Big Guy's siblings for Christmas. I can't wait to get started on these.

Grateful for: Vacuums. And brooms. And lint rollers. These cats of ours are dropping fur by the handful as the weather warms up. If they jump in your lap right now, when they get up, you look like you're wearing fur pants.

Loving: The hours of alone time I got this past week. You all know how much I love my family, but this girl needs her quiet time.

Thinking: A trip to Lowe's is on this week's agenda. I'm fired up to do some painting.

Looking forward to: Spring cleaning this week; this makes me ridiculously happy.

What are you looking forward to this week?
