The Sunday Salon: Home (at Last!) from Italy


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

My time in Italy is over and I've returned home and finally managed to shake off my jet lag. Our trip to Italy was inspired by Stanley Tucci's series, Searching for Italy. As we traveled around the country, I chose to eat and drink something that sounded interesting every day. My complete list of foods/drinks tried is on the graphic above. I'll be posting more about our trip to Italy soon.

What I'm Reading Now:

Where Angels Fear to Tread by E. M. Forster

What I Posted Last Week Here at Readerbuzz:

...trying to return to normal life...

My muse abandoned me while I was in Italy.
Any thoughts about how I can get going on my novel again?

I began to list 3 Good Things every day in 2020. Now I've established a regular routine of writing down my 3 Good Things. 

Here are 3 Good Things from last week:

Good Thing #1:
Comic in the paper 
we saw the day we returned home from Italy.

Good Thing #2:
Author Katherine Center will be speaking 
at our library fundraiser in October.

Good Thing #3:
First meal at home 
when we got home from Italy
along with a fresh salad from the garden and homemade bread.
Italy has inspired my cooking.
