Sunday Salon ~ Happy 4th of July America!

Happy 4th of July America


I'm hoping all of you who celebrate the 4th of July have an extra long holiday weekend. Enjoy the weather, cookouts, and time with family and friends. If you are spending it alone then I hope yo get some reading time in with an excellent book.

I have finally recovered from the stomach flu as has the hub, but I did miss (2) days of work (Mon and Tues) as a result. It really took me most of the week to recover....UGH ...Well, on the positive side, it did help me to lose (3) more lbs so that makes 7.5.

The weather here is sunny, but hot hot hot, and that will continue all through the coming week as well. Saturday wasn't too bad so we got in a walk and read on the deck, but now the windows are closed and the AC blasting. It is a good excuse to relax and read and work on a few projects.

As for reading progress, I posted my mid-year stats a few days ago, here is the link in case you missed it and are interested. I have so many books I want to read right now, but currently, I'm finishing up:
I'm hoping, this week, to read :
What are you up to the weekend? Whatever it is, stay safe and cool.

  2. Glad to hear you are now recovered. July 4th is obviously even more popular than Christman, a lot of my blogger buddies seemed to have disappeared. Good to be able to say hello to you. Happy July 4th.

  8. Happy Fourth! Sorry to hear you've been sick--I'm not sure the weight loss is worth having the stomach flu!

  9. I also read Sisters of Hardscrabble Bay just a about a week ago, and really enjoyed it. Did you find there wasn't enough about Avis' throughout the book?

    I can't handle the heat well, the sun is even worse for me. I always park my self under a big tree. Although the past week has been cold for me (London, ON Canada) yesterday an today were hot. I managed to escape outdoors thanks to a wonderful breeze. Happy Independence day to you.

  10. I've been away and hadn't realized that you weren't feeling well. I'm glad that you are better now!

    I have so many books that I want to read too. Every time I look at my bookcases I think I need to stop visiting the library for a while so I can read what I already own.

  14. So sorry to hear you had a difficult week. I think the stomach flu has a way of really wiping us out for a long time. Glad to hear you were feeling better for the holiday weekend.
