The Sunday Salon
Another Sunday! I think DST gets everyone turned around; unless I turn the clocks forward the night before, I always feel like I’m running behind somehow. Anyways, I’ve been spending the day working on various stuff for school; I had an hour-long phone conference with one of my professors this morning and then I’ve been spending much of the afternoon working on outlines and writing essays for class.
I’m also preparing for a long weekend next weekend to Arizona. The goal was to get out of the “cold” weather, but since the high temperature here is supposed to get up into the 60s/70s this week, it won’t be so much of an escape! But I think getting away from work for a day or two will be good.
In terms of reading, I’ve been reading for class, but I’ve also found time for pleasure reading. Right now I’m reading The Children Who Lived in a Barn, a children’s book which is mostly good, fun fantasy (although the practical realist in me is finding plot holes everywhere). Surprisingly, I’ve been doing a lot of reading this year as a whole; so far I’ve finished 23 books for pleasure.
So other than that, things have been pretty quiet around here!
