Back to the Y, plus Gratitude Daily and Happier Now


My friend, Rae of Powerful Women Readers, went to an author reading for Alda P. Dobbs, and she brought me a copy of Dobbs' book, Barefoot Dreams of Petra Luna, for my granddaughter Annie. (Shhh...don't tell Rae, but I couldn't resist reading Barefoot Dreams before I had to give the book to Annie, so I did last week.) I finished the pop-up version of Le Petit Prince (wonderful!) that I brought home from France in April, and I also listened to Nataly Kogan's Gratitude Daily and Happier Now

I'm happy you joined us here at the Sunday Salon. Sunday Salon is a place to link up and to share what we have been doing during the week. It's a great way to visit other blogs and join in the conversations going on there. 

Some of the things we often talk about at the Sunday Salon:

  • What was your week like?
  • Read any good books? Tell us about them.
  • What other bookish things did you do? 
  • What else is going on in your life?

Other places where you may like to link up over the weekend are below. Click on the picture to visit the site.

  1. I need to do more exercise. Not sure I will be able to do anything like that but swimming is on my radar 🤣

    I did some posts for Paris in July but they weren't in the wrap up. I thought that I had signed up on the main page. Was there somewhere else to post them?

    Have a great week next week!
