Sunday Salon: Keeping UPS busy

Happy Sunday. A little more than 2 weeks before Christmas and I haven't even started doing our Christmas shopping yet.   It was warm today and didn't feel much like winter weather as my morning glory are still blooming.  Time to make a list and check it twice and see who has been naughty or nice.  *grin*.  I've been especially nice to myself and went on a book buying spree with the money my parents sent for my birthday.  

I've added an eclectic assortment of fiction and nonfiction books and ebooks to my library this past couple weeks along with the next two books in Stephen King's Dark Tower series # 3 The Waste Lands and #4 Wizard and Glass.  

The Twelve (Book Two of The Passage Trilogy): A NovelEchoing Silence: Thomas Merton on the Vocation of WritingThe Write-Brain Workbook: 366 Exercises to Liberate Your WritingWinter's TaleThe Great Hunt (The Wheel of Time, Book 2)Hopscotch (Pantheon Modern Writers Series)

Jesus of Nazareth: Holy Week: From the Entrance Into Jerusalem To The ResurrectionNew Seeds of ContemplationMozart's Last Aria: A Novel (P.S.)The Sorceress (The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel)The Distant HoursChocolat

I'm currently reading The Great Hunt, #2 in the Wheel of Time by Robert Jordan and Christopher Vogler's The Writer's Journey: Mythic Structure for writers. 

I really haven't gotten back into a fictional writing mood but James is still going strong and working on yet another story.  I'm rather proud of him.   I have been working on the new mini challenges and posts for 52 Books in 52 weeks and will be posting the sign up link in the next few days. 

Life wise, we are heading out today to pick up our christmas tree and I'm looking forward to watching White Christmas while we decorate the tree.  Today is the 2nd week in advent and we are using What's in the Bible's Everyday Emmanuel.  The sequence we are following is Hope, Peace, Joy and Love.  This week is peace and we are supposed to be making a peace ornament for our tree.  Time for a trip to the craft store. 

Have a wonderful week! 

Happy Hanukkah!
In the old days, it was not called the Holiday Season; the Christians called it 'Christmas' and went to church; the Jews called it 'Hanukkah' and went to synagogue; the atheists went to parties and drank.  People passing each other on the street would say 'Merry Christmas!' or 'Happy Hanukkah!'  or (to the atheists) 'Look out for the wall!'  ~Dave Barry, "Christmas Shopping:  A Survivor's Guide"
