Is it really Sunday? With furloughs and the holiday weekend, I’ve been blessed with a glorious 5-day weekend. It’s the kind of bliss that allows you to forget what day it is. Gosh, I love my time off.
One of the reasons that I am really lovin’ the time off is this…
I picked this up on Saturday and I have been reading it ever since. The Passage by Justin Cronin has got to be THE book of the summer. It comes out on June 8th but it’s everything that you’d expect from a great summer read and then some. I had to force myself to hit the sack last night and I only gave in, because my over-forty physique was screaming from my cramped reading position. As soon as I got up this morning I went right back to it. I even skipped food! A first! I am about halfway through and at 766 pages that’s pretty good.
The other thing that I have been enjoying is pure family fun and lots of cook-outs. We’ve been hanging around the house, lounging out in the backyard in this 95 degree weather and cooking up a storm. Tonight we are grilling burgers and roasting some corn and then after the kids hit the sack, we plan to watch Less Than Zero. You may recall it from the 80’s. Robert Downey Jr and Andrew McCarthy along with Jami Gertz. I’ve seen it a dozen times but haven’t seen it in a while so that’s the plan for tonight. Oh, and a bit of trivia for you, it was based on Bret Easton Ellis’ book of the same name and the sequel to the book comes out late June.
I hope you are all enjoying the weekend as much as I am.
