Sunday Salon--July 19, 2009
Happy Sunday Salon to everyone! Saturday as mentioned, with the help of my energetic sister, we finished painting my dining room and one wall of my living room. This will sound weird, but one more wall will be the same color and then the others will be a different color. No, I'm not telling you yet. But, I will show you a pic when done. For now, here are some works in process. Obviously, the furniture is a pit out of place. Notice some of my bookcases...tee hee. My dogs tried to help, but as you can see at the end of the day they had had enough.
What do you think of the new paint color?
Reading this week:
Still finishing up American Lion, about Andrew Jackson. The author Jon Meacham won a Pulitzer for his incredibly written biography. (Review to follow). I'm spending a lot of time with this lengthy history taking copious notes for a paper I am doing on it.
Reading for the First Look program at Barnes and Noble: Under This Unbroken Sky by Shandi Mitchell. An awwesome read so far! The historical fiction book takes place in 1938 about a farming family from the Ukraniane who immigrate to Canada. I'm hooked on this one too.
Lastly, a little light reading...Inkheart by Cornelia Funke. Somewhat disappointing start and I loved the Dragon Rider series. I haven't given up hope. It is about my favorite subject...books, so how bad could it be?
Hope everyone enjoys the great weather....at least in the Northeast. How about where you live? Watcha doing today? Please don't forget to tell me what you think of my painting? Ta ta for now.....
