The Sunday Salon-July 12th

I wrote earlier in the week that I've been going through a bit of a funk and have had a case of the summertime blues. I decided to refocus a bit and have cut back on some commitments and have focused on enjoying some things that will lift me out of the blues. Well, I've been working on a few things....


First, I've been listening to more music and found that I really LOVE Il Divo's music and style as well as they are all very handsome guys! I've been watching their Encore DVD and their new album The Promise.



Secondly, I picked up a knitting project that I had put aside awhile ago. I'm still a fairly new knitter and just know the very basics and would love to learn more and work on some other projects. So, I am going to finish the scarf I started and then pick a more challenging project for a beginner.


A very nice friend reminded me to take care of myself and suggested that I get out and walk and get some fresh air to take care of myself. I started doing this while listening to some music (Radiohead) on my husband's MP3 player. It was very helpful and will continue to do this. Note to self: I need to get an Ipod or MP3 player!


Of course, I would be remiss not to mention books! I decided to choose a light and fun book and picked The Sugar Queen by Sarah Addison Allen off of my book shelf. It's been just what I needed to read at the moment.
Don't forget to enter the giveaway for a copy of The Local News by Miriam Gershow, which ends July 16th. Click on the picture to the left in the sidebar for details or go here.


  1. The summertime blues seem to be going around on the blogosphere. I just had it for two weeks. I've feeling better and more energized now. I've been walking too and it's so funny how something as simple as walking can make you feel better so fast.

    Have a great week.

  2. You are a wise woman and seem to be doing all the right things. It will lift, maybe faster than you think.

  3. I loved The Sugar Queen - I hope you do too!

    I really need to get out and get some more exercise. I know that always helps me too.

  4. It sounds like you're doing all the right things! My son will be very impressed to hear that I "know" someone who's listening to Radiohead.

  5. Knitting sounds like heaven. I really need to drag mine out too. I hope all your efforts will make you feel much better!

  6. I love IL DIVO. They were founded by Simon Cowell (of American Idol fame). At least, that is what I heard.

  7. As I'm a week late commenting here I can say that I've been slowing down on the blogging in turn for other things lately. There's just so many other things to do during the summer! I hope you enjoy your new ventures and that they blow the blues out of the water.
