Hello Sunday Saloners!!!  Another week has flown by and am very disappointed in my reading, or I should say lack of.  But the big news is the new look, which was unveiled yesterday.  So, what do you think?  Like, dislike, like the old look better, any suggestions, etc., etc.  Would love to know your thoughts.  And now to my week.

Reading:  This is awful, and I’m quite embarrassed to say, that another week has gone by and I still haven’t finished my current read.  Not because it’s not keeping my interest and/or is an awful read.  Quite the opposite.  It’s because I haven’t had the time to really sit and read, for a few reasons.  I have spent a lot of time in front of the computer, busy with blog to-dos and organizing tours.  Plus my DH, took some time off this past this week and since he isn’t a reader, doesn’t understand the concept when one has a book in hand, it means conversation can’t take place lol.  It was like he had a GPS implanted for when I would pick up my book lol.  Plus I haven’t rectified or found the solution to be able to read while wearing my CPAP mask (for sleep apnea).  

Blogging:  I did have a productive week computer wise.  Drafted up a lot of future posts for showcases, giveaways and work for Partners In Crime Tours.  I also spent a weesome, more time than I should have, on shopping.  If only my favorite sites didn’t send me emails with great bargains, I might have had more time for reading lol.

Real Life:  Exciting week for deliveries.  Haven’t had one of these weeks in a while.  Between the mail and UPS, I received some great books, which I will share tomorrow.  I think it is so funny how excited I get when I see that big brown truck stop in front of my house.  It’s like Christmas morning lol.  The holiday was a quiet day.  I was hoping to spend the day reading on my reading float with a frozen mudslide but my DH wasn’t able to vacuum the pool due to a broken hose so I spent a couple of hours reading in my ac’d reading room, the only day this week while the hubby was out.  And I did have that planned frozen mudslide lol!!!!

So how was your week?  How was your holiday?  Did you get a lot of reading done?

  1. It’s the same way with audio books around here. I’ll think no one is around so I’ll start listening to my audio book. I swear as soon as I turn it on, someone wants to talk to me! lol I still get excited by packages too.

  2. I LIKE THE NEW BLOG THEME!!!!! Except for the college of the message text when I am typing here. Needs to be just a little darker so my old eyes can read what I am writing :)

  3. see, that should say color not college

  4. Very easy to read. Nicely organized.

  5. Oh, I love the new look! Isn’t it fun to change things up? I didn’t write a Sunday Salon post today…I am watching movies and reading in bed. With a short break to see what’s happening online.

  6. I think the redesign looks great! There are some weeks where it’s just easier to get busy work done than to read. And my mother is the one who has always had the radar when it comes to my reading. When I was a teenager she would follow me from room to room and just keep talking even if I held the book in front of my face (she does the same thing to my dad when he tries to read the paper). :) She’s so sweet, but she’s a talker, not a reader.

  7. My dh does lots of talking at night when I’m in bed trying to get sleepy. I just let him go on and on and then he finally falls asleep, and I can read!
