The Sunday Salon: April 24

Happy Easter to all who are celebrating today!  We’re having a nice, relaxing day here.  Kids have been remarkably restrained in regards to their Easter baskets, much to my surprise. (I woke up a little before 6 a.m. to the sounds of them calmly discussing – for a half hour! – the merits of the various assortment of chocolate they were anticipating.) 

We don’t have much planned for today, which is fine with me.  I worked on cleaning and decluttering the house magically transformed the house into a model home yesterday while The Husband took the kids to his parents’ house to celebrate Easter a day early … and we’re back in the throes of packing and whatnot today. The good news is that the house is looking pretty good and I think we’re finally to the point where we can officially put it on the market this week. 

I’m hoping that I’ll not only have a chance to read some of Fragile Beasts today, but perhaps finish it too.   Given that I have nearly 150 pages left (not to mention more to do around the house), I know that’s incredibly optimistic.  I was really engrossed in this during the first half of this novel, and now it’s kind of starting to lag a bit.  Author Tawni O’Dell has done an incredible job of creating strong characters who I definitely care about and am sympathetic (for the most part) to, but it’s approaching that point where something needs to happen or secrets need to be revealed … or something. 

How is your Sunday?

    Hope you guys had a wonderful Easter!

    Moving is so crazy so I am amazed that you can even get any reading done. I’ll be looking forward to your review of Fragile Beasts. Hadn’t heard of that one but I’m intrigued.
