The Sunday Post/Sunday Salon: Writing, Shopping and Reading

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer ~ It's a chance to share news~ A post to recap the past week on your blog, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead.
This past week, I had a good one in the sense of writing. I wrote poetry after coaxing my muse out of its vacation. I read scientific articles and also a few romance novels along with crime fiction. As my niece is getting married, I did some shopping too, for myself. I need to get Sari, a dress or two, Jewellery and shoes.  I have bought half the stuff and will buy whatever is left, in the next shopping spree. I am not a very enthusiastic shopper but I did enjoy looking through Saris and dress (the party wearing kinds, that is). (I am VERY enthusiastic when I buy books!!)

I got a few books in my mail and will write about those in my Monday Mailbox post tomorrow. I do not have anything planned for next week, as usual. I will take it in my stride. Planning always goes haywire for me.

I posted the following on my blog:

Mailbox/What Am I reading?/Musing
Crime Fiction Alphabet: N is Nemesis by Agatha Christie
Misery Bay by Steve Hamilton
Top Ten Favorite Books I've Read During The Lifespan of my blog
First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros

Oh a wedding! I have a few that I have to attend this year, so I have to go dress shopping as well. I'm not very enthusiastic about it either, so I completely understand.
I'm glad you managed to coax your muse out of hiding :)
I hope you have a great week and thank you for stopping by!

I enjoyed reading your Sunday Salon. My plans usually go "haywire" too. Hope the wedding details work out well.

Shopping for a wedding is fun, but shopping for books is an adventure. Sounds like you had an amazing week!
Thanks for being a part of the Sunday Post!

Glad you got your muse out of vacation! I'm trying to put together some of my poetry for a chapbook. Wish me luck!

I'm not much of a shopper either.
