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?
We’re experiencing temperatures in the upper 80s and will for several more days. That’s no way to begin October, the quintessential autumn month!
What are you reading?
I’m listening to Enchantment by Katherine May. She wrote the book Wintering that was such a comfort to many of us during the first winter of the COVID pandemic. It’s interesting and somehow comforting to learn about the ways that she struggled at that time.
What are you watching?
We bought a new streaming device, so we are naturally experimenting with the various streaming services. Since I currently have access to Paramount+, I’m watching some of the Star Trek that I missed in the last few years. Right now, I’m enjoying Star Trek: Strange New Worlds.
What are you doing?
I had a colonoscopy on Friday. That kind of took all the oxygen out of the week with two low fiber days on Tuesday and Wednesday, then an only liquids day plus prep solution on Thursday, and the procedure on Friday. I was really anxious about the whole thing and, in the end, decided that I could have pulled all that off without the anxiety. We’ll see if I remember that next time.
The result was the removal of three small polyps and a reminder that I have diverticulosis and should eat a high fiber diet (check!). That’s the same result that I got the last time I had a colonoscopy in 2014.
What are you writing?
For British Isles Friday, I reviewed a movie that I enjoyed so much that I watched it twice in a row: Red, White, and Royal Blue.
I completed my second week of my project to work on my novel every day for 90 days. I even wrote on the day of my colonoscopy. I had to drink the final part of the prep solution at 4am. Once that was all cleared out, there was still plenty of time before my appointment to write for an hour. So, I did. It was a good distraction.
How are you this fine Sunday?
