Sunday Salon - watching the snow fall

Just another lazy Sunday in Maine. More snow flakes are scheduled, there are logs in the fire, blueberry muffins in the oven, and lots more books to read. I have two to finish up, and several more waiting in the queue for reviews.

One thing I'm disappointed about is that one of my library downloads has expired, and I had to go back in line to get it again. I was about 1/2 finished, and was really enjoying Orange is the New Black: My year in a women's Prison, by Piper Kerman. This is a fascinating memoir and I hope the waiting list moves fast.

I'm about 2/3 through another ARC from NetGalley, and hope to finish it today: The Sins of Brother Curtis by Lisa Davis. It's the story of a law suit filed against the Mormon Church on behalf of boys who claimed they suffered sexual abuse by one of the church members. I'm finding this one fascinating and well written.

Then I've got book club books: Olive Kitteridge and Half-Broke Horses, and a few more ARCs, not to mention the two I just had giveaways for earlier this week. So, I'm going to enjoy my lazy snow day. There's nothing I'd rather be doing.  February is quickly winding down, and many of you are already planning for spring.  I'm glad we have some more winter to go, because that gives me a great excuse (like I need one?) to kick back and dive into all those wonderful books.

Edited late afternoon 2/27/11 to add:

I've actually now (late afternoon) ended up flipping through the cooking mags that come while I was gone trying to get inspired for dinner.  Last night's snow covered everything beautifully, but now it's starting to 'fluff' again.

Hope I'll be able to get out to go to my water aerobics class tomorrow AM.


  1. We got snow overnight as well, and although I never thought I'd say this, I'm HAPPY, as it looks beautiful out , and it has covered all the gray dirty snow up....LOL

  2. Oh, I've been itching to read Orange is the New Black...sigh.

    I have Half-Broke Horses on "Sparky," my Kindle...I really want to read it soon.

    Hope you enjoy your cozy, snowy day in Maine. It sounds lovely.

    In California, our cold weather hardly qualifies as such (to those who have really cold days)...but it does keep us inside reading, too.


  3. Never ending snow here as well. Good reading weather :)

  4. "More snow flakes are scheduled, there are logs in the fire, blueberry muffins in the oven, and lots more books to read..."

    sounds pretty darn good!
    I do have when a library download can't renew them like a regular book. It is hard to keep track of all

  5. I need more tea...s/b "I do HATE..."

  6. Our snow is melting and it's warming up, but it's too sloppy to go outside so I have an excuse to stay indoors and read as well. Dave is day-dreaming over seed catalogs.
