Sitting Around on a Sunday — The Parental Visit Edition

My parents are visiting this weekend, so my routines (such as they are) have been thrown off the last few days.  They do their own thing — primarily shop — while they are here, so I’m not required to be with them all of the time, but it still would be rude of me to sneak up to my office to do some blog work while they are sitting in the living room relaxing (though I will sit with them and read while they are watching tv). (P.S. Right now they are out shopping so I’m not ignoring them, I promise!)

I did finish The Language of Flowers last night and I ended up enjoying it more than I expected to, based on my impression of the first 20 pages or so.  I hope to post a review of it this week, but right now I’ll just say that I really disliked the main character, Victoria, and I feel kind of bad about it.

I’m about to start Flight from Berlin for a blog tour in which I’m participating later this month.  It is set at the Berlin Olympics of 1936 so it is going to be a timely read, with the Summer Olympics about to start in London; as well as fulfilling my interest in reading books set in that time period.

How is your Sunday?

    I had a busy Sunday, but it was a pretty good one. I hope that you have a great time with your parents and that they get have a nice getaway spending time with you. I also can’t wait to read your review for The Language of Flowers. I can see why some would not like Victoria.
