The Sunday Salon used to be a meme but was getting so huge it became unmanageable, so it is now a Facebook group that has become an informal week in review
gathering place for bloggers.
It is also a place to share our thoughts about things of a bookish nature.
So Happy Sunday Everyone!
My granddaughter was baptized last Sunday so I was away from the computer most of the day. I hope to have a picture to post soon.
The heat has subsided here a bit but we still need rain badly. A quick shower passed through yesterday about 7 a.m. but much more is needed. Our grass is brown and all the crops in the fields look awful. The drought in Southern Wisconsin has officially been classified as severe. The area farmers are really feeling the pain. The are feeding their livestock like it is winter because the pastures are dying. The corn crop is in jeopardy as well. The normal summer treat of fresh sweet corn is just not available unless you want to pay the high prices in the grocery store for corn that has been trucked in from elsewhere. We had a mild winter with hardly any snow and now a summer with hardly any rain. Water restrictions are in place all over and there are even wells going dry. We are over 6 inches of rain behind what is normal for this time of year. Mother Nature is definitely testing us.
Now let’s talk books! Here’s my blog week:
Thursday I hosted the Virtual Book Tour for Lost Girls by Caitlin Rother. I didn’t know much about this story or that the book was causing such an uproar because the family did not authorize its publication.
I always love this week. Most of the cozies coming out in August have arrived!!
Plus some other books I Can’t Wait To Read.
Saw this on Facebook this week and it just cracked me up!
