Sunday Salon – Home and Welcome May

Home again and the weather is brilliant, simply brilliant – it is uncommon for us to have this  stunning weather in April/May and I am so enjoying it. Long may it continue .

The furore has not yet died down from that blasted wedding, but at least I can get out of my house without the worlds media running around the city of London.

It’s seems everyone loved “the dress” and I did eventually have a look at it – and I must say it does bear a striking resemblance to Grace Kelly’s dress when she married Prince Ranier but who cares, it was a lovely dress and that’s all that matter..

My mom did the obligatory paper thing – you know the buying of all the different newspapers to save.. she is mad like that. She saves/collects the oddest little things that most people wouldn’t think of. I can’t complain though as it's nice years later to look back at the news paper and see what was happening. I am sure the boys will appreciate these 40 years from now.

As of today – the media is obsessed with where they are going for their honeymoon – not me though, I am in the backyard with a pitcher of lemonade and a bit of fruit cake.

May Nablopomo

It’s a new month and once again a new theme for the Nablopomo – I think I made it through the month of January only and I have only done a few days here and there of the subsequent months – but i am going to give May’s theme a try.

This month’s theme is MAYBE – the organiser says of the theme this month..

MAYBE.

Maybe can sound like a wishy-washy word, a non-commitment.  It can show ambivalence, being of two minds about something.  Or maybe can also be seen as a word embodying potential -- maybe looks to the future, to possibilities, to things that may happen.  May is a great month for exploring future wishes as well as looking at the words as they scroll across the screen, planning how you'll move them from "maybe" to "yes."

This will definately be a challenging topic to get through this month. MAYBE – there are so many uncertainty in life including my enjoyment of the next book I pick up, those are definately Maybe’s if I go by the quality of some of the books that I have been reading lately.

 

Blog Crawl

Kassa from the blog Three Am  is once again organising Fan (letter) Blog Crawl. Last year was our first time out an I had a blast and a huge dent in my craft budget as I found a ton of new to me authors and made a few new friends as well.

June is the month she has chosen for us to celebrate and if you have no idea what I am talking about click on the picture above and you can check out what a lot of us had a blast doing last year this time.

If you would like to take part please do drop her a  line HERE.

 

 

Until next week – cheers

 

From  site –

What is the Sunday Salon? Imagine some university library's vast reading room. It's filled with people--students and faculty and strangers who've wandered in. They're seated at great oaken desks, books piled all around them, and they're all feverishly reading and jotting notes in their leather-bound journals as they go. Later they'll mill around the open dictionaries and compare their thoughts on the afternoon's literary intake....

That's what happens at the Sunday Salon, except it's all virtual. Every Sunday the bloggers participating in that week's Salon get together--at their separate desks, in their own particular time zones--and read. And blog about their reading. And comment on one another's blogs. Think of it as an informal, weekly, mini read-a-thon, an excuse to put aside one's earthly responsibilities and fall into a good book.

I can't even imagine how overwrought the media must be about the wedding over there.
