The Sunday Salon: In Which I Go to the Country After Reading The Country Girls and A Country Year


It seems appropriate that I'm off in Big Sandy, Texas this weekend after reading The Country Girls and A Country Year. Big Sandy, in fact, is The Country, and the place we are staying does not have WiFi. (Isn't WiFi a standard feature? Perhaps not in the country.) 

So if you don't hear from me until after I return on Monday, don't despair. Hopefully, I will be able to return to civilization and visit you all then.

What I'm Reading Now:

The Little Book of Lent: Daily Reflections from the World's Best Spiritual Writers (Spirituality)

MacGregor Tells the World by Elizabeth McKenzie (Fiction)

A Most Remarkable Creature: The Hidden Life of the World's Smartest Birds of Prey by Jonathan Meiburg (Nonfiction)

Last week I posted here at Readerbuzz:

I spent a lot of time in nature this week, which also seems appropriate...

Good Thing #1
Our naturalist group learned about spiders this week, 
and we were treated to some 
spider bread and spider sandwiches for refreshments.

Good Thing #2
We did a beach cleanup, NestFest, to prepare the beach
before the birds and sea turtles begin to nest there.
I found this, which iNaturalist identified as 
a Black Drum bone.

Good Thing #3
We befriended a Western Ribbon Snake
during a bioblitz this week.

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?
