Sunday Reflections (Nov. 29)

Hello Everyone!
Hope this finds you all well, and that a lovely weekend was had by all. I didn't get everything done this weekend that I wanted to, but at least some of the house is clean. I usually have my tree up and decorated this weekend, but since my doggie's couch is a bit larger than usual, we are having space issues. Therefore, this will be the first year we go with a live tree. Yes, a live tree, although probably a Chuck Brown version, again due to space.

And I am okay with this, because as much as I love this time of the year, and all the stuff that goes with it, it sucks having to take all those decorations down when it's over. It's a little depressing, and finding the time is difficult. So only my best ornaments will go on the tree and that will still probably take me all day to do :)

So on the reading horizon, I have an interview and giveaway starting tomorrow for Kathryne Kennedy's newest release, My Unfair Lady. I am reading it now, and so far so good, except for one passage in the book. It's a nice, easy breezy romance with a bit of mystery.

I am also reading Defenders of the Scroll by Shiraz which is really geared more towards young children, like ages 10 and up, I guess. I should have a review of that later this week, and also a review for The Recipe Club. I finished that last night. There are some tasty sounding recipes in there, and I plan to make one of them later this month.

Oh! And before I forget again, I just finished listening to Frankenstein. What a great book! I listened to it on a free podcast called Craftlit hosted by Heather Ordover. The podcast tag line is "A Podcast for Crafters Who Love Books". Heather is a former English teacher so she explains things and sets up the chapters. This made the listening quite interesting and I learned much more with Heather, than I would have if I just read the book on my own. The beginning of the podcast is some knitting stuff, so you can fast forward a wee bit until she gets to the book part. Heather has done several classics and I look forward to listening to some more. It makes my work-outs much more interesting.

I also have another contest coming on Thursday. Why? Because it's my 1st Bloggaversary!!! Woo-hoo! I will be giving away some of my gently read books so stop back on Thursday if you can.

Well I think that is plenty for one week, so enjoy the rest of your day and happy reading everyone :)

We have a Chrlie Brown Christmas tree in our backyard and I think I'm actually going to hang a few ornaments onit this year.
Listening to Frankenstein that way sounds great! I'll have to look into it.

We might do the christmas tree and decorating this coming weekend, a little later than usual but I just havent had the time or the energy so I can relate to what you're saying.

Defenders of the Scroll was a good story but I thought the writing was unpolished, I guess I should remember that it is geared for younger children but I don't remember it being marketed at that age group when I received the book from the author? Do you?

Woohoo on your 1st blogoversary approaching, an exciting milestone reached. I'll be back to cheer and do the happy dance LOL
