The Sunday Salon (winners announced) 8-9-2009

The Sunday Salon.com

Hello - Happy Sunday! I have just one word- HOT! We finally used our backyard pool today. I think it was the first time all summer we have had 2 consecutive days over 90 degrees! Summer is finally here - just took it long enough. . . We have a 4 year old son that we tried to coerce all afternoon to get in the pool with us (he had on his life jacket). We have been swimming at our local aquatic center all summer without the life jacket - but it has the zero depth area. Finally - after my sister and I both gave up and got out, and my husband got in and tried to get him in - he told his dad he was afraid he was going to drowned - he had forgotten that the life jacket held him up! Once his dad convinced him of this he couldn't get enough of the water and loved to show off how he could "swim" from the ladder to the raft and how he could jump in and touch the bottom. I have a feeling this week we will be spending a lot of time in the water!

I have all these random thoughts each week, and each week I think that I will post them on Sunday - and then Sunday becomes a busy family day and I never get to the post. I am going to try to be better at adding some posts that aren't just featuring books, giveaways or reviews. The other thing that I have missed with summer is getting to read a lot of other blogs. I am looking forward to school starting so that some of my time will free up and I can go "visiting" again! I also just got a new widescreen computer screen which has made reading content MUCH easier. My old screen had been "damaged" by a rambunctious 1 year old when he threw a toy and cracked it - so for the last three years I have had a black section on part of the screen. Well, last whenever I turned the computer on I would have to wait about 5 minutes for the vertical lines to clear - it was time for a new screen.

Speaking of computers - I am not very computer literate and need some help. I want to get a laptop and I don't have a clue where to start. I would just like to use the laptop for blogging and maybe a little game playing. What would I need as far as system requirements that would allow me to do this - and when I travel, what do I need to be able to use it then. Any and all information would be appreciated more than you would know!

Another question that I have - actually, it is an assignment. I would like to get to know the people who read this blog. I had over 1500 page views last week and very few comments (unless it was a giveaway). Let me know you are out there. Tell me you like a book, or a book cover, or just say Hi! Tell me what you had for lunch or the latest movie you saw. Share with me something funny that your kids did this week. Anything - How many comments do you think I can get this week?

Ok - time for some winners! I had 4 giveaways end last week that I have not posted winners for - so here you go.

Thanks again for the book giveaway Kristi. I'm so glad I won a copy. Too cute about your son. Kids are so sweet when they realize that they can in fact do something-then they can't get enough. lol.

Hot here too! Glad your little guy was able to enjoy the pool.

Here's a link I saw at another blog. I sent it to all my sisters and thought you may like it too. This is my favorite JH movie:
