Good morning, and welcome to The Sunday Salon.

This Sunday meme is our oasis in the reading and blogging week; an opportunity to visit other blogs and catch up on what they’re reading throughout the blogosphere.

Last week felt like a blur, and I know that’s because everyday was filled with activities with Noah, my seven-year-old grandson—but he doesn’t seem to mind if I read or hang out on the computer a bit.  As long as we get to do other things.  One day, in the midst of errands, we took a little break and went to that “pie place,” as he describes it (Marie Callender’s).

Enjoying a Break

Actually, that plate had the delicious corn bread on it, and then after he ate his burger, he was too full for the pie, but we brought it home.

We both enjoyed the little break in our routine.

Then it was back to blogging and reading.

Blogging Events:

It’s Monday!  What Are You Reading?

Waiting on Wednesday

Book Blogger Hop

A Bit of Me (Me)

This week, I did a pretty good job with the reading, considering…

Books Read and Reviewed: (Click the title for the review)

1)  Fly Away Home, by Jennifer Weiner

2)  As Husbands Go, by Susan Isaacs

3)  Secret Lives of Husbands and Wives, by Josie Brown (Review will be up later today)

So that’s it for the reading and blogging.  Here in California’s Central Valley, we’re eagerly awaiting the first signs of fall—just so those triple digits will go away! This past week has shown a cooling trend down into the nineties…yeah, cooling trend!  lol

This blog features my book, An Accidental Life, which is set right here in the Valley.  It’s all about what one long, hot summer can stir up in four teenage girls…check it out!

Now I’m going to visit all of your blogs and see what books I can add to my list! (Not that I need more books in my TBR piles, but the list is harmless, right?)

Have a great weekend!

    1. Thanks for stopping by, Deb. Yes, as much as his presence distracts me at times, he is definitely a bright spot in my days. It’s true what they say about grandparenting being better than parenting…and not just because you get to send them home. There’s that perspective that shifts slightly when you’re not the one rearing them.


    1. Thanks, Coffee and Book Chick….I agree and I think that sometimes we deny ourselves these simple pleasures out of some kind of misguided notion that “all carbs are bad.”

      Life is too short to always be doing without these little pleasures. Thanks for stopping by.


Please leave your thoughts. Comments, not awards, feed my soul. Thanks!
