Sunday Salon-Evening Post
It's been a busy weekend and I didn't think I would post at all, but I felt like something was missing in my life. My nephew got married last night and I spent the day with him yesterday, running around doing last minute things. We went shopping and had to pick up flowers. It was really fun though spending a few hours with my oldest nephew. I went to his rehearsal dinner on Friday night at his house. He has spent three years or so remodeling the place and it was great to see all his finished work. It really came out nice and he is so meticulous with his craftsmanship.
Speaking of talent,
my sister,(remember who just passed her RN test) spent the last two days making her son and daughter-in-law's wedding cake. Check this awesome cake out. She made a couple of test cakes for the bride and groom to try, but she also made a mini for me. Yummy!! It was a dense, moist chocolate cake with an incredibly delicious ganache filling iced with the most lip smacking buttercream frosting. Don't you just wish you could taste it?
Of course, I did read this week and so that this is truly a Sunday Salon, I will recap some thoughts.
I had a hard time deciding what to read and found myself flipping through the first through chapters of one book. Then I would put it aside and pick up another one. Still not satisfied I started reading a third, then a fourth and I am so confused right now that I stopped reading all together. Has that ever happened to you?
I did finally try another book. A completely different one called Half Moon by Douglas Hunter. This is the story about Henry Hudson. So far I really like it, but as with the other books, I have only read two chapters. I can't believe my indecisiveness this week. All the books I started are good, I liked them and I will read them I don't know why I was having so much trouble deciding what to read.
Has this ever happened to you? I think it was Alyce who asked me, How do you decide what to read? Did I get jinxed? Just kidding, Alyce. Maybe it was just nervous sympathy for my sister as she was whipping up her masterpiece for the wedding.
I hope this week is better. Don't forget the contest for the Karen Rose book I have going. Also...see the contest over at Naida's the bookworm. Both contest links are in my sidebar. Have a great week.
