Sunday Salon - 8/5/12

  • This week I continued with my exercise routine that I started 4 weeks ago. It entails going to a gym, just for women, with a 30 minute circuit of machines as a trainer motivates us to really give it everything we've got. And then most evenings I go for a fast walk lasting ≈ 45 minutes while listening to my current audiobook. I've noticed improvements in both inches and energy levels. It's been difficult in the heat and humidity, but I feel great when I'm finished! I'm currently listening to A Discovery of Witches. At about a a third of the way through, I'm really starting to enjoy it. I don't really like to read books about vampires and romance, but this one has a lot of references to historical events and I am intrigued.

  • Spent a lot of time sending out invitations for my daughter's party - it should be fun on a boat!

  • Visited friends who live on Shelter Island during the summer months. It is gorgeous there! My daughter and her friends went tubing in the bay, and we both had a great day. I didn't take any pictures but here are some I found online:

  • Having a hard time finishing the last 30 pages of Let the Great World Spin. I need to just finish! Reading during the summer months should be easy and enjoyable, but I find that with the family home and going on lots of day trips - I have little time to read. I will make more of an effort.

Have a great Sunday!
