The Sunday Salon - A Relaxing Weekend

Well hello, y'all. Sorry it's taken me a while to get back to the blog, but in light of my previous post, as you might've guessed, I've had a lot on my mind. I've been doing lots of applications, networking, reaching out to possible connections who may need social media consulting. It's going well and feels promising, but it's rare that I let myself sit down for a few minutes and clear my head. Most of the time I'm just trying to stay busy.

This weekend has been a relaxed, kicked back kind of time. It was good to just hang out and be lazy for a change. The laziness included...


The Fabulous Beekman Boys on Netflix...


A delicious baked chicken...


And some of these wicked kaloches from The Czech Stop. Pulled pork were awesome and the berry and cream cheese were great, too. 

Oh, and books!




How was your weekend?

  1. My weekend was the same-o, same-o. I really should try watching the Beekman Boys - I loved The Bucolic Plague!

    1. Oh Kathy, I think you would LOOOOVE the show. They're so cute (and slightly annoying [Brent!]). We watched the whole season this weekend and laughed all the way.

    1. Thanks, Vasilly! I need to do my own little mini Bloggiesta! So far this week has been breakneck, but maybe later in the week or over the weekend.

  4. Mmmmm Czech stop. I don't head down that way very often but when my sister still lived in Texas and would come home from Austin she would always bring us goodies from the Czech Stop. Love.


    Glad it was a relaxing weekend for you!

    1. Trish, The Czech Stop is soo so so good. My new beau (ha! haven't announced here) brought goodies from there last weekend. The pulled pork chubby was AMAZING. And the cream cheese kolaches are to die for.

    1. Jennifer, sadly, I am not reading the Follet. David, my other half, is currently listening to all 34 hours of it on audio and letting me know how it's going. I'm definitely going to have to read it though. Sounds too good to pass up.

  7. I joined the gym this weekend. Which means I was relaxing quite well until I tried to move my arms yesterday.

    I have been horrible about reading blogs lately, so infrequent posts work quite well for me. :-D

    1. LOL, Jill. I can imagine. No gym membership here, just old fashioned walking. And I've been a pretty bad blog reader, though I did spend a few minutes Sunday trying to catch up with my faves.

  8. Sounds like a fabulous weekend! I spent most of my time unloading boxes of books after we covered the upper part of our "library" window with UV-reducing film (which makes it look frosted -- kinda cool). And, I read a good bit. Someday, I'm going to get to that Follett series. They sound wonderful!

    1. It was super fantastic, Nancy! I can't wait to see your library. I unpacked some of my books this weekend and even though they don't have a bookshelf home right now, I like being able to see them out on a table. I forget what I have!

    2. I need to get back to work on the library. The library window was actually at the top of my blog in my Monday Malarkey post - the rectangular photo with the fake stained-glass hummingbird.

      I forget what I have, too! It's loads of fun going through all those books and reacquainting yourself with them, isn't it? I've set aside a pile of "want to get to soon" books.

  9. You powered through a Ken Follett book in a weekend? I am so impressed.

    1. Nooo, no, no. I wish! LOL My boyfriend is listening to them on audio, and we spent some time talking about them. I'm definitely going to have to give it a try. It sounds fantastic!

  10. Sounds like you a great weekend! My weekend was spend relaxing as well, and thinking of different books (children's picture books) to highlight for October.

  11. Yay for weekends! You've had such a busy time these past few months, you deserve to have a lazy weekend.

    That roast chicken looks awesome. I did one last week and rubbed it with too much butter. The house was quite smokey and I finally had to remove the battery from one of the smoke detectors. ;) But it sure was tasty!

    I loved Pillars of the Earth and World Without End, so I plan to listen to Fall of Giants later this winter. I love chunksters and audio is the way to go, at least for me. I say that now, but then I think about how long it's taking me to listen to The Passage. I've been listening to it for over a month!

  12. What a delicious looking chicken! My weekend was all work work work. It's surprising I actually decided to get back to blogging now that I have a job. I started blogging when I was unemployed, though, come to think of it, I was not less busier than I am now. :)
