SUNDAY POTPOURRI: READING, BLOGGING, & UNEXPECTED DISCOVERIES

Sundays are the perfect day for reading, blogging, and movies. 

Eager to start the day by visiting weekly updates, I was ready to set up my tray; the one that I carry into the office and set next to the computer.  But then I groaned inwardly, realizing that in my laziness yesterday, I hadn’t gone to the store.  So there was no milk for cereal.

But then I remembered the K-Nourish hot cereals I had picked up a couple of weeks ago.  No milk required.  So I had one while visiting blogs.  Check out my Weekly Updates here.

Now I am fed, caffeinated, and ready to go to the store.  But first, here’s what I am excited about for the rest of today.  I am reading The Pocket Wife, by Susan Crawford.

And in the early pages, we find out where that title comes from…bet you’ll never guess!  LOL

Remember how I vowed to curtail the Vine reviews I requested?  And how I had two or three books, and then the number crept up to five?  Well, yesterday I ordered another one!  *Smacks hands*

 

The Secrets of Midwives, by Sally Hepworth, was just waiting patiently in my queue.  How unlikely is that?

The Secrets of Midwives is women’s fiction at its finest. Sally Hepworth has written a wonderfully satisfying story about three generations of midwives. It’s touching, tender and obviously meticulously researched, giving the reader a fascinating window into the amazing world of midwifery. A delightful read.” —Liane Moriarty, author of The Husband’s Secret

“From the first page, I could not put The Secrets of Midwives down. Sally Hepworth delves into family secrets and family love in two different eras, adding mystery and plot twists at a breathless, exhilarating pace. I simply love this book!” —Ann Hood, author of The Knitting Circle

Yesterday, I found another box unopened from my move seven years ago…I thought it was my daughter’s, but recognized my handwriting on it, once I pulled it down from the top shelf.  As I hesitated, wondering what could be inside, I felt like a kid on Christmas.  Here is what I found:

I think I will put them in a bin…and ponder whether or not they can come out and show themselves.  What do you think?

I want to go to the movies today, too, but as I gaze outside, I suspect rain might be coming.  Not that rain should stop me, though; after all, I AM RAIN!  Yes, that’s my nickname.

What is on your list for the day?  Reading, movies, whatever?

  1. A surprise bin? What fun! We are staying in all day…Den is off all week…we are staying put for Thanksgiving and we have to run around on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday! We have been seeing our movies on Mondays…when no one is there…we are going to see the next to the last Hunger Games tomorrow…we already had waffles and bacon and coffee…we are having a hard cider soon…and baked tacos and salad for dinner…it’s a lovely day!

    1. Yes, it did feel like a gift, Patty….and I may return home after shopping for food. I love curling up on a Sunday.

      I’ve noticed that Wednesdays are a good day for the movies, too; this Wednesday, though, I have a manicure appt. Maybe I’ll go afterwards.

      Enjoy your week! Waffles, bacon, and coffee…Yum! Your dinner sounds wonderful, too.
