Time: // 8:27 am

The scene: // We had our first really cold night. Fortunately, I was paying attention so I put a third blanket on the bed yesterday and we were comfortable for sleeping. But it’s so hard to get out of a warm bed!

Listening to: // Nothing. The cold must have distracted me from getting any music started this morning.

Reading: // I’m still loving Provence, 1970 by Luke Barr and I’m hoping to finish A Paris Notebook by C.W. Gusewelle by tomorrow morning so I can write a Dreaming of France post about it.

P.T. Weese, World War I

Editing: // My World War I post where I transcribed a letter my grandpa wrote from training. I mentioned that I knew a photo existed of him in uniform, but I didn’t seem to have it. One of my cousins came up with it and sent it to me.

Blogging about: //

  • A photo experiment that Rick and I put together to figure out how different cameras work (or don’t work) to produce blurry background photographs.
  • A memory of seeing an exhibit of nude photographic portraits in France, prompted by a recent trip to the St. Louis Art Museum.

Participating in: // I didn’t manage to write any reviews for Nonfiction November this week, but I did have a good time finding my book pairing  with books about World War II in France. Even more fun was checking out what every one else came up with for book pairings — my TBR list grew by several books! Check them out at the Week 3 Review compiled by Lu of Regular Rumination.

The theme for Week 4 is “Name one book you learned about through other posts” during Nonfiction November. That shouldn’t be too difficult! Watch Sophisticated Dorkiness for the link-up tomorrow.

Looking forward to: // Book Friday! A couple of friends are plotting a Twitter event on Black Friday that they are calling Book Friday. It’s still coming together, but it looks like it’s going to be several hours, if not a full day, of book chatting, author interviews, and author panels. I’ve volunteered to host a couple of hours — one will be a discussion on multicultural books. More details on the way!

What are you up to this fine Sunday?
