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

It's Monday! What are you reading? -- Mar 22, 2010

It's Monday! What are you reading this week?
This is a weekly event initially hosted by J. Kaye at J. Kaye's Book Blog, now by Sheila @ One Persons Journey through a world of Books, to celebrate what you are reading for the week as well as books completed the previous week.

Books completed last week
- White Oleander by Janet Fitch
- Last Night in Montreal by Emily St. John Mandel (To be reviewed)
- Liar by Justine Larbalestier (To be reviewed)
- Sugar by Bernice L. McFadden (To be reviewed)

I am currently reading

The Two Towers by J.R.R. Tolkien: I hadn't been able to start this one yet, and as always, I am late to the LOTR Read-along party.


The Friday Night Knitting Club by Kate Jacobs: Finally, I started this one last night! Phew! That was a one-month delay for me!




My reading plans for the next week

For a change, I am not listing any of my next reads. I do have a good reading weekend coming up, hopefully. I'll just try to pick up what suits my interest, rather than plan in advance!

Comments

I was never able to finish The Lord of the Rings. I keep saying I need to go back and give it another try, and I keep not doing it. Enjoy your books!

I bet you breeze through The Friday Night Knitting Club!
I won Last Nigh in Montreal and am also looking forward to reading Liar. Oh, and I have the Friday Nigh Knitting Club so can't wait to see your review!

You can never be late to the Tolkien party. I love it when I see Tolkien on people's lists. One of my favorite authors.
White Oleander is a memorable read! And I just read The Friday Night Knitting Club...loved it!

You had a good week reading. Hope next week is fruitful too. I will have to stop back to read your reviews on Liar , Sugar, and Last Night in Montreal.
Whatever you choose to read - I hope it is wonderful and look forward to seeing what you chose :)

I hope you are enjoying LOTR. I am curious about what you thought of Liar. I've read mixed reviews (and I inadvertently found out the big spoiler) so I'm not sure I'll be reading it. The Friday Night Knitting Club looks good. I hope you enjoy your books.

Great reading week. My boys tell me over and over that I must read LOTRs. Will get to Liar one of these days.

I love it when I'm able to just pick up whichever book suits my mood and read it.

You know...everytime I see your reading The Lord of the Rings it reminds me I need to get you that paper of my husbands! Will remember to ask, I promise!

I actually have a copy of Friday Night Knitting Club and haven't gotten to it yet. I'll have to see if your review pushes that one into my lap!

Have a fabulous reading week!

Yeah, Friday Night Knitting Club is really easy to read. I enjoyed it.

I see you have Middlesex up there on your sidebar. Wonderin' if that'll be comin' up soon. I have that book and haven't read it yet. It's pretty long. I should though. It keeps staring at me. Ha ha

I like to do that too sometimes...just pick up what I'm in the mood for at the moment.

Have a great week, Aths :)
