Olympic Sized Lazy Sunday Thoughts


I know I said I wasn't interested in the Olympics but those Opening Ceremonies suckered me right in. I haven't watched much of the games though. I really liked the Winter Olympics. What can I say, I am Canadian. The Summer ones, not so much. I tried to watch the Men’s Beach Volleyball but that wasn’t as exciting as I had hoped. Right now the Women’s Cycling is on. I’m hoping Clara Hughes does well but it’s not looking good.

I’m making my way through Tipping the Velvet, still. I think I’ve passed the part that was annoying me. I still want to kick Nancy in the pants though. She’s rather bratty. Not much left of the book now. I can do it! All these pages are counting toward my Olympic Reading. Not bad so far.

Two books came in the mail this week: Diving Belles by Lucy Wood and All Is Clam by Hilary MacLeod. That’s it.

And have you heard?! Estella’s Revenge E-zine has been reincarnated as The Estella Society! So exciting!! If you are a book blogger, get involved.

Finally, here are this week’s Photo a Day pics. For a better look, check out my Tumblr.

Photo a Day July Week 4


  1. I'm not watching the Olympics either - maybe we should start a club. lol

    1. It always seems to be on the TV when we have it on though.

  2. I've been watching the soccer matches, but not much else has caught my attention. Love the photo's of the week. Very cool :)

  3. Thanks for mentioning us Chris!

    I need to read more Sarah Waters. I have no idea what I'm waiting for, seeing as I adored The Little Stranger so much!

    Love the pics!

  4. I'm from Colorado, so I can sympathize. I get totally psyched for the winter Olympics, but the summer ones not so much. I do watch them, though.

    I did not know about the Estella Society--thanks!

    1. You are welcome! I understand winter sports more than the summer ones.

  5. I love all the Olympics! We are not just a winter country....all those swimmers are fun to watch and occasionally we win medals in the pool, like today! Yaaay Canada and our first medals! lol sorry, I just love competition and already have spent so many hours becoming potatoes on the couch....Olympic watching potatoes.....that could be a good title for a post! lol

    happy lazy Sunday to all of us, Chris! enjoy your new books.
