Sunday Salon – Random Thoughts – Weekly Recap – Mail Call

The Sunday

 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!

No earth shattering news this week 🙂 It’s cooling off weather wise, high have just been in the 70’s. Sherlock is still getting a little better day by day. I did go to the doctor this week to talk about getting a power wheelchair as walking any distance at all is getting harder and harder. It would be great to be a little more independent and maybe venture outside without the fear of falling. As usual my grandkids always make me smile. Kaden was here for the weekend and Natalie is growing so fast. In December Kaden will become a big brother and we are all excited to welcome another baby.

Week In Review

Monday – Taking a break from Mondays Music Moves Me but couldn’t start the week without It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? After I posted it this week I realized I had forgotten to add And When She Was Good by Laura Lippman to my planned reading for the week and I am hosting a virtual blog stop this Thursday. I read it right away on Tuesday but still want to complete what I had planned so today will be a full reading day for me.

TuesdayI reviewed Sweet Talk by Julie Garwood. Fantastic story!

Wednesday – Rochelle Staab was my guest for Cozy Wednesday. Her latest Mind for Murder Mystery, Bruja Brouhaha is a really clever cozy.

ThursdayI reviewed Tana French’s new novel Broken Harbor. I was so excited to read this story but about halfway through the book just fell apart for me. I started to just skim the pages to get to the end. The main character started making unbelievable choices and I barely finished the book. It seems people either loved this story or hated. Sadly it just wasn’t for me.

Friday – Author Hillel Damron was my guest for his Virtual Blog Tour of his book Unidentified Woman. His guest post was very interesting and I really enjoyed the book.

SaturdayI reviewed the first book in a series of Novellas by John Dalglish. Where’s My Son? is the story of a man who lost his wife to cancer. his son to a kidnapper, and he  just snaps and will go to extreme lengths to find his son.

  1. Ooohhh! I can’t wait to hear what you think of Nightshade on Elm Street. It sounds like a good one. Can’t wait to see what you have for Cozy Wednesday. 🙂

    Happy reading!

  2. Your grand kids are beautiful!! I can’t believe how big Natalie has gotten. Hope you got good news regarding the scooter since I know this has been something you wanted for a very long time. Have a great Sunday!!

  3. A power wheelchair sounds like a great idea. I always worry about falling, especially when it’s wet out. I’d like to get one in a few years. I have a manual wheelchair and a scooter. The scotter is good but it’s big so sometimes difficult to manuever in store aisles. I hope you’re able to get the power chair soon so you can get out and go farther distances.

    Your grandchildren are adorable. Natalie looks so old is she?
    Congratulations on the upcoming baby! I’m sure you love being a grandmother!

    I hope you have a great week!

    1. Thanks Amy! The doctor irritated me a bit because he thought a manual chair would be fine, but he finally got it when I actually showed him with only one working hand all I could do was circles and heaven forbid I it a small bump, lol. Crazy! Natalie was born April 24. She is growing way too fast!
