Usually I say Good Morning Saloners!! But it's almost afternoon here. I wasn't going to post a Sunday Salon today because I'm not quite finished with my shelf reorg, but I'm spending today doing something that I haven't done in a long time...reading during my "free" time.
Not cleaning (ok maybe a little sweeping/vacuuming), not cooking (except for some peas and chicken for the babe), not watching TV (except the superbowl)...ok fine...In addition to all the other things I'm doing in my "free" time today (including hopefully Zumba and a trip to Sam's for diapers), I'm also reading. Like in my LaZBoy. Like something I rarely allow myself to do anymore because there are so many other things I "should" be doing.
Why? Well, because my work book club (which I'm desperately trying to restart) is meeting on Tuesday and I'm only a little more halfway through Love in the Time of Cholera. So, I'm cramming. And I'll be shocked if I actually finish by Tuesday, but I'm going to try my damnedest.
And you know what? I'm enjoying it!! The language of the book is slow and tedious which means that it is forcing me to really drink everything in that I'm reading. I can't remember the last time I did this! And I kind of miss it! So though I will be cramming today and tomorrow night, I'll be cramming in pleasure.
Do you ever find yourself speeding through a book only to stop and start savoring instead?

Bossypants!! Don't have much else planned. If I can get some pictures together than maybe a Things that Make me Ridiculously Happy Post. And I've been meaning to do a vlog for quite some time but just haven't gotten there yet--need to charge my camera battery and get that done.
Off to see how many more pages I can read before Elle wakes up from her nap...
What's going on with you today??
