    Today I am enjoying a quiet house all my myself–Eric and the boy are off to Ohio to pick up Ash, where she’s been staying with Eric’s parents for a week and a half. A quiet house is lovely.

    i could do with a little of that heat right now. your comment about the classic spin has sent me into a panic. I forgot I was supposed to have read my spin book. oh bother

    Hanging out at home with books and computer and wishing the rain would stop so we can go to a local art fair!

  4. I just put the Estellagram list on the website and Tweeted it. Can’t wait to try again. I’m always hit and miss at our own challenge. lol And I’m ready to start Owen Meany! Good luck keeping cool, and your tea party sounds fun!

  5. Beth F says:

    I have Saga 2 but haven’t read it yet. Maybe this afternoon….

  6. I wish I were brave enough to tackle the Saga books, they sound so interesting but I’m so afraid that they are just a litttttle outside my realm. Macaroons and orange scones sound ah-mazing!

  7. The tea party sounds wonderful – I love macaroons! Have a wonderful Sunday, V. 🙂

  8. Anastasia says:

    I’m really excited about the Sync books this summer! Now I’ll have really awesome books to listen to when I start my seasonal job again. Huzzah!

    Today I’m going to finish reading a Georgette Heyer book and then maybe watch some Japanese TV shows. 😀

  9. dastevens says:

    Oh my gosh, orange scones??? Wonder how I can finagle an invite from your daughter. 😉

    I still need to read the first volume of Saga! Why haven’t I done that–it sounds so good!

  10. BermudaOnion says:

    I need to do Estellagram again – it’s so much fun!

  11. iliana says:

    The tea party sounds like tons of fun! Hope you are enjoying the rest of your weekend.

  12. heidenkind says:

    I always forget about Estellagram. I need reminders or something.

  13. Kristen M. says:

    Oh, it was SO hot today I couldn’t do anything. We have two more days to go so I don’t expect to get much done. I guess I’ll just try and read as much as I can … and definitely down the ice water too! 🙂

  14. Care says:

    Orange scones? Yes, please. I love scones. Maybe I should forego a pie and make apricot/pluot scones? Hmmmm. Stay cool!

  15. Ah, yesterday I made cherry scones. But now that you mention it, I should have made orange or lemon scones! Next time! :–)

  16. Jennifer @ The Relentless Reader says:

    Yuck to the heat, hope it cools down soon. I can’t tolerate it. I’d take winter all year round instead 😉

    Good luck with the homeschool curriculum. I’ve found nearly everything I need for next year. I’m on the hunt for a decent art history course though. Any suggestions?? (I homeschool my 13 year old daughter)

    Have a great week dearie!

    • Vasilly says:

      Jennifer, have you ever tried Meet the Masters? http://www.meetthemasters,com Carrie (Books and Movies) recommended it to me when I asked the same question. I had no idea that you homeschool! 🙂

      • Jennifer @ The Relentless Reader says:

        I’m going to have to check that out. It sounds familiar to me. Hmmm. Is that the one with “tracks”? I don’t know what tracks mean, lol. I’ll have to explore it a bit more.

        Yep, I homeschool! My oldest daughter went through public school. My son is going into 10th grade next year. He tried homeschooling for one year and didn’t like it one bit, ha ha. He missed the social stuff. My youngest, 13, is the one I have at home. She loves homeschooling 🙂

  17. Bryan G. says:

    I was up to…not being on Facebook or Twitter, but I’m back now, at least for a little bit. Sorry to hear about the heat out there. Hope it will get better the rest of this week.

    Orange scones? Yum!

    Hope the Sunday went well! It was such a hot weekend here in Nor Cal. SoCal must have been so much worse!!
