Happy Sunday Salon to you! I spent most of the week away from the computer on a camping trip with 35 students between the ages of 7 and 11. We had wonderful weather, great low tides at the beach and the most serious injury was a brush with a large Stinging Nettle (they get up to over 6 feet around here).
Needless to say I did not get much reading done. Well, other than Doctor Dolittle, which is a great bedtime story. I did finish a book for the Spotlight Series which is focusing on the books published by NYRB Classic. Please visit the Spotlight blog over the next week and read the great collection of reviews.
Saturday was my first day on the beach for this year’s volunteer Beach Naturalist program. With everything that is happening in the world right now it is one thing I can do to help people understand the place where they live. It is my 9th year, the program is constantly improving, and the new volunteers are just amazing. I feel blessed to be able to take part in this educational effort.
Because the last 6 weeks of school are always rushed and crazy I feel like I have fallen behind in my reading and blog posts but I am not going to fret about it. We all go through times like this. I have one book nearly finished and another I want to review and if that happen within the next week I’ll be satisfied. What are you reading today? What are your reading plans for the week?
