The Sunday Salon - The Quick Version!

Happy Sunday, everyone! It's a quick Sunday Salon today. I spent part of the weekend at my mom's house grading papers and trying to get caught up with my online classes. Tomorrow it's back to work and the madness of the end of the term.

Truth be known, while I was working, I also got a pedicure and bought a kickass pair of wedges. Chuck is rolling his eyes right now. Ahem!

After finishing up The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake earlier this week, I took a quick look at my shelves and plucked Little Black Book of Stories by A.S. Byatt. I've never read Byatt -- well, never finished any Byatt. I figured this would be a good opportunity, and I'm hoping somehow this little collection will fit into Carl's Once Upon a Time Challenge.

So far I'm really enjoying Byatt. The first story, "The Thing in the Woods" is fabulous. Very creepy and a little icky and a whole lot cool with some WWII background built in. Hopefully I'll be able to read more later today and I'll have more to report this week.

I'm about to pack up some stuff and head back to Dallas to round out the weekend with Chuck and the Rockets. I hope you're all having a wonderful Sunday!
