Good morning, and welcome to The Sunday Salon, our great, expansive virtual reading room where we meet to commiserate about our week’s adventures.

As we approach the holidays, I notice something brisk in the air.  Yes, it’s the cold weather, but it’s also that contagious thrill of upcoming celebrations.

I used to feel less than great about the holidays.  I was kind of a Scrooge.  Then that all changed.  Some of my holiday memories (and creative moments) have appeared in my blogs this week.

At Home for the Holidays

Christmas Memories – Guest Post at Book Journey

A Bit of Me (Me) – Christmas Tree Lane

Fluffing up my WIP

Family Moments:

My wonderful granddaughter Fiona spent part of the weekend here, and we enjoyed some movie-watching, eating out, and a morning at the gym.


My Reading Week:

Not very successful, in terms of number of books read, but I loved both of the books!

1)  South of Broad, by Pat Conroy (Click Title for Review)

2)  Elizabeth, by J. Randy Taraborrelli (Click Title for Review)

Today I plan to read some more, watch some Christmas movies I recorded, and finish watching The Last Picture Show, an old movie (from the 70s) that came in the mail for me this week

I first saw it in the theater back in the day, but each time, I notice something new in it.  I’ll have a review up later.

So that’s it for me.  What have the rest of you been up to?  Hope you’ll stop by and share.

    1. Thanks, JoAnn…As soon as I had begun South of Broad, I recalled all that I had loved about The Prince of Tides, too. The language is fabulous, and the sweeping stories are majestic. Thanks for visiting, and have a great week.


  1. I used to get Christmas overload when I worked at Wal-Mart. By the toime we set Christmas up right after Halloween…. the end of December meant nothing to me but a day off.

    Thankfully… years after my Wal-Mart days I find I can appreciate Christmas again 🙂
