The Sunday Salon - Rain, Rain Go Away

The Sunday Salon.comSheesh. It's been raining here for days....and hopefully the end is near. We had a miserable football day yesterday. My daughter's soccer game was cancelled, but not the JFL game. The field was a big mud pit, and Chad was soaked by the time the game was over (and yes...we WON!!) But we've had about 6 inches of rain in the last two days...and I'm tired of it!!

I didn't get a whole lot of reading done this week, but I did finish The Good Thief by Hannah Tinti and I was pleasantly surprised. And I've been reading short stories from Stephen King's Everything's Eventual for the RIP challenge. A good, scary short story is always a little gift. Other than that....it's been a rather uneventful week!!

Not much else to tell....so this is a rather boring post. Maybe next week will be more exciting!! There are a lot of great giveaways and things going on with BBAW. And I'm hosting a couple of the award announcements. So stay tuned!! Wednesday, it will be the awards for "Best Name for a Blog" and "Best Challenge Host". Thursday, it is "Best Romance Blog" and "Best Kidlit Blog". Can't wait to see all the winners!

Happy Sunday and Happy Reading.

Editorial Note: According the news last night, we ended up with 8.62 inches of rain!!

You all ended up with more rain from these two hurricanes than we did here in Louisiana! That's crazy!! Like Debi, hope you dry out soon!

Ohhh, can't wait to hear what you think of The Good Thief! I've had my eye on that one and look forward to eventually getting my hands on a copy.

Stay dry!! 8 inches is crazy.

It has definitely been raining here a lot as well, although it made for perfect R.I.P. reading weather all weekend so I rather enjoyed it. I am glad things are drying out now though as I need to be able to get out and mow before the grass ends up covering the whole house!

Hi - I've popped over from Dewey's blog. I agree that your header is absolutely gorgeous! Hope your rain slows down - we've had an extremely moist summer out here on the east coast of Canada.
