Watching for Hail — #SundaySalon
Time: // 8:19 am.
The scene: // We had some lovely days in the last week. But that’s over now. Back to rainy and cool reading days instead of warm and pretty gardening days.
Listening to: // The weather radio. The blares just sounded to warn us of a severe thunderstorm with hail.
Reading: // I put Quicksilver by Neal Stephenson on hold again to read this week’s book club selection, TransAtlantic by Colum McCann. Fortunately, it’s a fast-paced book that I should have no trouble completing by Thursday.
Blogging about: // Words to describe poetry for National Poetry Month. I have more for this Wednesday.
Participating in// Once Upon a Time VIII (with the first two books in Gail Carriger’s Finishing School Series) and British Isles Friday (with the Carriger books and an Elizabeth Peters mystery).
I’m so pleased that British Isles Friday draws from an untapped well of content that bloggers are eager to share. Check out this week’s links for posts about trip photos and videos, the England of Indian immigrants, Downton Abbey, English accents, and book reviews.
What are you up to this fine Sunday?
I just love your British Isles Friday idea. Perhaps some day I will participate with a few memories of a trip I led with several of my English students.
We have not yet experienced severe weather here in KC … but it is coming. I sure could get used to the weather we had yesterday: Sunny skies and high of 80 degrees 🙂
Hope the hail isn’t too bad and that you find plenty of time to curl up and read.
I’ll look forward to reading your Transatlantic review – I read this one a while ago and enjoyed parts of it …..
I thought your tweet meant, “Hail, Poetry!” to beckon poems, then realized that would be hale, not hail. I had to look it up to verify it though. I hope better weather and poems come to you these blustery April days.
Here’s hoping for some cool yet sunny days ahead for all of us! Let’s see what you think of Transatlantic. I liked it, but I didn’t love it.
TransAtlantic is surprisingly readable isn’t it? I started it off with pretty low expectations but overall liked it (but not loved it).
