The last Wednesday in May. Incredible. As we were tooling around the neighborhood I was reminded that we have a holiday weekend coming up. Flags popping up here and there. Memorial Day, especially where I am, kicks off summer for us. It has been very warm mid-day but wonderfully cool in the mornings. I wish our summers were like this. In a few weeks it will get very warm. On today’s walk Chloe, The Otter Pup, made friends with a Golden Retriever. Historically speaking, Chloe does not like Goldens. She feels that they are too happy and the ones who carry their own leashes? Please! She wants nothing to do with them but today, she found one, behind a fence who wanted to greet her so I allowed it and Chloe liked her. A first!
This past Monday I reviewed The Invisible Husband of Frick Island and it was lovely. If you missed the review, check it out when you have time. I loved the story so much. I want everyone to read it this summer. My current read is People We Meet On Vacation. It wasn’t originally in my line-up of books but so many of you are reading it now and it was available from the library so I grabbed it. So far, so good.
Ah, Memorial Day. BBQs, a long lazy weekend and a big blockbuster movie. Uh, well, okay. No big blockbuster movie this year. Baby steps. It will be good to have an extra day. My husband’s work has been extremely busy. He needs an extra day to relax and I will NEVER pass up extra reading time. My daughter is officially done with her classes and the musical so she needs some downtime too before graduation on June 1st!
Just now I looked over at a box of donations I have for Goodwill. I think I will try to add to it this week. My daughter’s closets and drawers and heck, my son’s too, have a lot of stuff that does not fit anymore. That, along with the garage purge I never got to last week ought to keep me busy.
Hope you are all well and reading something really good. Also, tell me your plans for Memorial Day weekend even if it’s just a long nap, and movies at home.
