Sunday Salon–Read-A-Thon Almost sidelined!!


Facebook link

Welcome to another FB Sunday Salon.  If this is your first time visiting, Thank you.  Hope you like what you see.   Since I’m taking a break from Dewey’s Read-A-Thon to write this, I am going to get it started right away!!

Reading:  As I stated, I am participating in Dewey’s Read-A-Thon.  This is my first time ever to participate and am enjoying it, even though I thought I was going to be sidelined when I woke up.  My left eye was swollen and in pain…great…never fails…I sign up for a read-a-thon and RL has other plans for me!!  Did you ever get that eyelash stuck somewhere inside your lid and it’s scratching the cornea?  Yup…that was me.  So the 8am kick off didn’t happen.  I have heard much about “Dewey”, but was not a blogger then but from what I heard, I felt that I wanted to give my time to her memory.  I might not be doing what I am if it wasn’t for her!!  But by 11am, even though painful and blurry, I started and it got better throughout the day.

Reading this week was a bit slow.  I finished The Lifeboat by Charlotte Rogan and just couldn’t decide what mood I was in for my next book, so I picked up a few, read a few pages and then received one from The Story Plant for it’s Spread The Word Initiative Program, Betty’s (Little Basement) Garden by Laurel Dewey and decided on this one.


I received some great books this week but will post those tomorrow.

Blogging:  Another week that I spent more time at the computer than I should have. I have a lot of guest author showcases and giveaways coming up and I like to prepare my drafts way in advance.  Since I am not the quickest when it comes to the computer, it does take time to pull these together.  And not only that, I feel that if for some reason, RL interferes, I don’t have to scramble at the last minute.  Am I the only one that is OCD about showcases or does anyone else prepare their’s ahead of time?

Real Life:  Highlight…spin cycle on my favorite appliance let go.  At first I was YES!!! no laundry, then looked and saw the hampers and got on the phone for repair service. I just don’t understand…even though it’s just my husband and I living here, the boys out of state, my laundry multiplies like rabbits.  But all fixed!!  Back to normal, wash, dry, fold.

Not a very exciting week here, the next 2 will be though….stay tuned to what is coming up!!

How was your week?

  1. Cute little logo for the spin cycle! lol

    I thought my microwave gave out this morning, as I pushed “start” and nothing happened. But then it worked when I pushed again. Perhaps my first try was a weak one…from exhaustion over the read-a-thon.

    But I do a lot of microwaving, so having it go out would be very SAD.

    Same thing with the spin cycle…not a good thing to happen.

    My eyes gave out before the read-a-thon was over, but I accomplished more than I thought I would.


  2. That’s the only thing I don’t like about blogging…I often spend more time at the computer than I do reading!

  3. Oh… I’d panic without a washer!!! Lol. *gasp* *faint* – I’m totally relieved you’re slavin’ away at it again!! 😀

    How fun for the read-a-thon!!!! Yay!!! It was my first time to participate, too, and sooo much fun!! I LOVE thinking “gotta get back to reading” all day!!!

  4. You had quite a week. I downloading my kindle to a spreadsheet this week and that’s when I realized I was hoarding books. I was putting the review books in my reading schedule but not the free ones. Good grief, I had clicked that little download box too many times. lol At least my kindle and I match, we are both way overweight and fed too often. 🙂

    Vacation day is getting closer!!!!!
