Good morning! Welcome to another Sunday Salon, our place to meet and talk books, blogging, etc.
In spite of triple digit heat and a week spent with my youngest grandson, I managed to get in some blogging and reading.
Over at Creative Journey, I posted my check-in for Row 80; at Snow Chronicles, I posted an excerpt from Interior Designs; and my Weekend Potpourri took us on a journey via photos, books, and movies.
Earlier in the week, I started watching a recording of the movie Gone with the Wind.
I read the book several times over the years, but haven’t yet managed to watch this four hour movie.
Yesterday I went to the theater to watch Hope Springs, with Meryl Streep and Tommy Lee Jones.
Great movie! Loved the awkward and funny moments that characterized the marriage for these two characters. Both were absolutely at their best in their performances. Nuanced and quiet moments showed the inside of a very ordinary marriage.

What a week! Hot, busy, but somehow productive.
Today I was planning to read a book from next week’s stack, but then this download arrived on Sparky, and greedily, albeit unexpectedly, I had to start reading it. And when I finish it, I will have completed my A-Z Challenge, with the last letter of “Y” fulfilling that list.
You Are the Love of My Life, by Susan Richards Shreve.
So far, we’re in the era of Watergate and a young mother who also writes children’s books has just returned to Washington, D. C., to the home where she lived when her father died.
