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 saw the sun this week! The days got even warmer than we were promised. I enjoyed some nice walks, feeling especially appreciative after the frigid temperatures we had for a while in January.
What are you reading?
I had some stressors this week and ended up watching more YouTube and comfort TV than I ordinarily would, which meant less reading time.
I finally made progress in the next book club book by creating a reading schedule. Now, I’m doing better at making my way through The Three Mothers: How the mothers of Martin Luther King, Jr., Malcolm X, and James Baldwin shaped a nation by Anna Malaika Tubbs. I like how much I’m learning about the details of these three women’s lives but also about the black experience more broadly in early 20th century North America.
I’m continuing to read The Confessions of Frannie Langton by Sara Collins, learning about the black experience in London about a century earlier.
What are you watching?
My comfort viewing last week was the latest season of All Creatures Great and Small. We’re into the World War II years, now. I had never given much thought about how the war impacted farmers in Yorkshire.
What are you doing?
I celebrated Groundhog Day and Imbolc in my post on Friday where I contemplated visiting The Mound of Hostages in Ireland. It’s one of the few ancient sites in the world that has a sun alignment at this time of the year, half-way between the winter solstice and the spring equinox.
How are you this fine Sunday?
