The Sunday Salon — My First

By Joyweesemoll @joyweesemoll

logo for The Sunday SalonI’ve decided I’d like to use The Sunday Salon as a way to post little bookish things that aren’t book reviews. I enjoy these posts so much on other people’s blogs. Unfortunately, this urge didn’t come with an idea of something to write about.

So, today, I’m going to steal the format that Vasilly uses at 1330v. She, in turn, stole it from Kim at Sophisticated Dorkiness.

Time: // 8:51 am

The scene: // at my desk looking out on sunny summer greenness

Eating: // soon — blueberry bread pudding

Drinking: // water, but in a bit I’ll have a cup of lapsang souchong — enjoying it now because I think I’m going to have to switch to something else. Rick, who is allergic to red meat, thinks it smells like bacon. Plus, I’m wondering about the environmental impact of a smoked tea and whether or not its carcinogenic for the workers who make it and the final consumer.

Listening to: // My Good Morning playlist on Spotify. I just started it for a second time, so I get James Taylor’s calm voice calling me “little darling” and telling me “It’s all right” with Yo Yo Ma’s lush cello sounds in their version of Here Comes the Sun. Works for me!

Currently reading: // Cooked by Michael Pollan and Sweet Talk by Julie Garwood. I may drop Cooked for today to finish the last few pages of Save the Cat by Blake Snyder. I might get back to Amy Falls Down by Jincy Willett. It’s a leisurely book and I was in the mood for something else last night, so I started Sweet Talk.

Blogging about: //my last post of our France trip photos should be read for the weekly Dreaming of France event tomorrow.

Participating in: // The Back to School Reading Challenge (join us!). I finished one book, but I’m saving the review until after our book club meets. I’ve started How to Write a Book Proposal by Michael Larsen but haven’t really got to the meat of it yet.

What are you up to this fine Sunday?
