Happy Sunday! Sunday Salon is hosted by Deb at ReaderBuzz. Check out her post and the links to see what other bloggers have been up to in the last week.
How’s the weather?
Our heat wave went on for nearly a week, but finally got drowned out on Saturday with a wet cold front. I’m looking forward to good weather days next week now that I’m feeling well. That should allow me to get back to some normal outdoor activities.
What are you reading?
I started The Lost Apothecary by Sarah Penner. So far, I’m enjoying the modern timeline where Caroline has joined a mudlarking group along the River Thames. I’m uncomfortable with the 18th century timeline with an apothecary that specializes in providing poison to desperate women to murder abusive men. I’m trusting that discomfort is what I’m supposed to feel at this stage.
What are you watching?
I’m now in Season 3 of The Umbrella Academy. I am enjoying it, but I’m also looking forward to watching something that’s less about comic book violence and more about something gentler. Let me know if you have any suggestions.
What are you doing?
I spent most of the week in the air conditioning but did manage a nice little adventure that involved a picnic in a shady pavilion overlooking the Missouri River.
I’m organizing the first in-person indoor meetings since early 2020 for two groups. It’s starting to come back to me how to do this. There’s more effort involved than sending out a Zoom link.
What are you writing?
For British Isles Friday this week, I reviewed Dorothy L. Sayers first book, on the 100th anniversary of its publication: Whose Body? This is also the first book that features Lord Peter Wimsey.
I feel like I’m just about to pull my plot together for my novel. Another day or two and I’ll have a broad view of my story pinned up on my bulletin board. That’s an exciting moment!
How are you this fine Sunday?
