The Sunday Salon – The month end on a weekend



It’s the beginning of another week and I am excited as always when Sunday comes around. It’s the day that I have a few extra hours in bed and luckily for me the clocks go back an hour here in the UK this morning – so that’s an extra hour on top of the few that I normally spend in bed on a Sunday morning.

It’s also the month end and other than the obligatory bills that must be paid – it’s the time of the month that my calendar on my email and my phone goes crazy with alerts.

It’s the last day to enter the October Giveaway – This closes at midnight my time. November contest will be posted on Tuesday as I have a heavy post day on Monday.

It’s also the time when all my templates gets sorted to go up for the first, like challenges so so forth…

One thing I do look forward to is trying to watch all the cartoons that I have recorded for the past few weeks within a few hours. I love cartoons especially the old ones like Scooby Doo and Scrappy, X-men and Thunder Cats..

Some new ones that I am slowly becoming addicted to are Ben 10 and Phineas and Ferb (They have the greatest songs in this one)…

When was the time you guys watch some cartoons…

On the reading front..

I am still trying to tackle that pile of books on the floor, as well as giving books away like crazy… it’s coming up to the end of the year and anything I have had since the last 24 month I am either swapping with friends or giving away.

I can’t go on forever promising I will read them – I know I wont in most cases…

Looks out for some of these books in the giveaway -  November and December giveaway will be a bumper pack of books.

On the home front.

The boys go back to school tomorrow and it couldn’t come quick enough for me. I think teenagers are a part of a cult – I have been making note on some of their habits this week.

Sleep through the daylight hours

Feels uncomfortable without something electronic in their hand or attached to their ears

Feels comfortable with the fire hazard of an extension with a million chargers coming out of it

Suddenly feels the need to pile as much dirty cloths as their rooms can hold in it.

The swagger and the attitude is more here than there..

Feels like they have to have the last word

Picky eaters – but eats like a horse…

You can just imagine that my one week with them off from school has not been all sunshine and light. To top it off it was their birthday this week and I don’t think one of them as moved from before Halo Reach in about two days…

**big sigh*** Please lord let me survive the next couple of hours…. before they go off to school.

On The Blog Front

I had my mom brainstorm some name for me for the new feature and she came up with about five and I am liking “With These Words” alot and it just clicks with the vibes I want to introduce to the feature.

That kicks off tomorrow and I am so looking forward to sharing these new authors with you for the next couple of month…  Make sure you join me tomorrow to welcome these new authors to the industry..


Just something weird to share with you….

This gives new meaning to the phrase “sex with a bite”


Until next week – cheers

From  site –

What is the Sunday Salon? Imagine some university library's vast reading room. It's filled with people--students and faculty and strangers who've wandered in. They're seated at great oaken desks, books piled all around them, and they're all feverishly reading and jotting notes in their leather-bound journals as they go. Later they'll mill around the open dictionaries and compare their thoughts on the afternoon's literary intake....

That's what happens at the Sunday Salon, except it's all virtual. Every Sunday the bloggers participating in that week's Salon get together--at their separate desks, in their own particular time zones--and read. And blog about their reading. And comment on one another's blogs. Think of it as an informal, weekly, mini read-a-thon, an excuse to put aside one's earthly responsibilities and fall into a good book.

OMG, I had to have another look before I saw what the poster was for. Makes sense now. But how awful!

Happy Halloween!
