Sunday Salon: Merry Christmas Week!

Happy Holidays & Merry Christmas!

I haven't been blogging much at all the past couple of weeks. The asthma problems I was having were an indication of pneumonia. I went to the doctor when I started to feel worse and, after talking my doctor into letting me stay at home, filled some prescriptions for strong antibiotics and spent a lot of time in bed, sleeping. Not the way I like to spend December but I had some furry felines keeping me company and the antibiotics are doing their job so the worst is over now!
I didn't get that much reading done either which was disappointing, especially as I wanted to read! But the words and sentences ran together a lot, it was very confusing! I'd read a page, lose focus and have to go back to where I started and try again! Fortunately, I felt better the last day or two and read some of The Tapestry of Love by Rosy Thornton.

I've always liked this time of year with the Christmas decorations everywhere and the Christmas carols and holiday music. Any shopping I have to do I've learned to do over the internet, it's hassle free and actually fun! (most of the time anyway!)

I have a few reviews that I am behind on and hope to post in the next couple of days. I'll also be announcing the winner of The Man Who Loved Books Too Much, which should have been done on Tuesday. At least I have the book here so I can send it quickly. I will finish Cleo by Helen Brown today or tomorrow. It's a wonderful book! I'm looking forward to reviewing it! I hope to start Unless It Moves the Human Heart by Roger Rosenblatt this week and Joyce Carol Oates memoir, The Widow's Story, too. I'll see how it goes!

Enjoy your Christmas and Holiday week!


  1. Oh, I'm going to check out that Joyce Carol Oates memoir...I haven't read it yet.

    I have asthma, too, and this year has been especially difficult.

    Have a great holiday.

    Here's my salon:

  2. Sorry you have been sick Amy; not that any time is a good time to be ill, but the holidays make it that much worse. Hope you are feeling better soon. Happy Holidays

  3. I'm glad you're on the upswing, Amy! Not a fun time to be sick, but I'm glad you have your kitties to keep you company. Have a wonderful holiday!!

  4. So glad you're feeling a bit better, Amy. Watch that pneumonia, though! It can creep back.

    Sometimes when we're sick, it's just too hard to concentrate and read.

  5. I am sorry that you have been so poorly, but glad to hear you are on the mend. I hope 2011 is much better for you than 2010.

  6. So sorry you've been sick, but I'm glad you're feeling better. Hope you have a very Merry Christmas!

  7. I'm glad the worst is over and I hope you're back to normal soon.

  8. Sorry to hear that you weren't well but very glad to hear that you have antibiotics and are feeling better!

  9. Glad to hear that you're feeling better! I'm sure you got better much faster at home with your own nurses than you would have at the hospital!
