Renovation Updates | Weekly Snapshot

Gah, October? Where did the year go? I'm suddenly realizing we are entering the busiest season of the year and there's going to be tons to do for the next three months. It is unseasonably warmer right now, which makes it harder to believe that it's October. The colors have started changing but it's almost like the trees don't care and aren't even trying to put up a show.  Renovation updates At this point, we have completed two weeks in our house while under renovation. Yes, it's every bit as irritating, annoying, frustrating, dusty, and allergy-triggering as they say a renovation can be. But it's also oddly fascinating seeing your house ripped down to the subfloor and peeking inside walls at the things that are typically hidden inside one. It was also satisfying seeing progress made - there's a wall one day, no wall the next day, and then all openings patched up the third day. This coming week is going to see the most progress - the hardwood flooring

The Sunday Salon -- Jan 24, 2010

Phew!! I'm only just getting to blog and browse online. It's been so hectic, I'm glad today is over! Of course, half of my "hectic" day went into reading. *wink* But that's reasonable! Is what I would say!

I got some good reading done last week, having read Daddy-Long-Legs and Her Fearful Symmetry. I LOVED both!! Her Fearful Symmetry is not at all like The Time Traveler's Wife, but it was a good book in its own right. Daddy-Long-Legs was a wonderful classic! Thanks to Aarti for recommending it!

I was planning to write both reviews out by tonight, but somehow that doesn't look like it will happen.

The disappointing news this week was that the audio book copy of Say you're one of them that I was listening to, contained only the 3 short stories! :-( Luckily, I picked this book last week from the library, so that's real lucky. I was expecting it to be one of those 14-day books, but it's not!

I'm still reading The Hobbit, as part of the LOTR Readalong. I'm in no particular hurry to finish it as Bilbo's adventures are definitely very engrossing to read! Next on my plate are City of Bones (finally I'll be starting on the Mortal Instruments series) and the remaining two novellas of Say you're one of them.

I also wanted to mention this award I got today from J.Kaye @ J. Kaye's Book Blog. I'm guessing you are subscribed to her blog. If not, you should follow! She has an awesome blog out there, definitely worthy of the Your Blog is soooooo Kewl! award!!



I'm passing this on to a few really kewl blogs I came across lately!
  1. A Bookish Way of Life
  2. Hotchpot Cafe
  3. Tales of Whimsy...
  4. Tea Time with Marce
Back to school again tomorrow. ::groan:: I sure don't expect to get much reading done before the next Sunday Salon post. Probably just 1 more book, in addition to the two books that I am half-way through.

Read other Sunday Salon posts.
