Sunday Potpourri

SUNDAY POTPOURRI: SAVORING WHAT YOU LOVE….

The clock is ticking, the days are sliding by…and before we know it, Christmas will be here, with New Year’s right behind it.

I am hoping for a better year in 2018…and one of the bookish things I enjoy each January 1 is the First Book of the Year event, which Sheila, Book Journey, is hosting again.

I selected my book a while ago…and even had several photos snapped to share on the actual day.  You’ll have to tune into my An Interior Journey blog to find out more.

What am I doing until then?  Well, reading, of course.  After my start of Sing, Unburied, Sing, I set it aside.  It wasn’t doing it for me.  Despite the themes I usually enjoy (poverty, drug addiction, dysfunctional families), the narrators fell flat for me. I know I am in the minority with these feelings, obviously, since the book won many awards.  But that’s okay. 

I am now reading and loving Snap Judgment, the third book in Marcia Clark’s Samantha Brinkman series.

I am happy that, after a thorough cleaning of my misbehaving coffee pot, today’s pot was everything I have always loved about coffee on a Sunday morning…or any morning.  Yay!

As a treat yesterday, I took one of my holiday Christmas gift cards to Cheesecake Factory for a nice Blood Orange Martini and some pasta.

This morning, I did something new:  I made some bacon and eggs for my brunch!

What are you savoring about the holiday season?  Are you discovering books you love, and maybe setting aside those you don’t enjoy?

  1. Hmmm…I just finished making a cheesy macaroni and cheese…Den has his special slowcooker ribs in the slow cooker…I am playing Puzzles while I keep him company but what I really want to do is sneak up to our room with my “girls” and watch Hallmark Christmas movies. I made yummy Ginger Molasses cookies yesterday and right now I am just a wee bit tired. Perhaps a cookie will revive me?
