So, hi. It’s been a while, sorry about that. Beaucoup de excuses to select from – concerts, humidity, rehearsals, travel, actual gardening. There’s been train trips and boat rides and cat walks and all manner of good and/or interesting times.
And of course there’s the summer reading – and the recent heat has been ideal for lounging about in front of a fan with a good book. Close enough to touch (but it’s too hot for us to think much about that, plus the combination of fans and cat fur is not always a good one) is my Purry Pal, when he’s not off watching the bird show on the deck.
The good books I speak of? Olive Kitteridge by Elizabeth Strout was an enjoyable read, but I’ve followed that with the realization that it was finally time I read Harper Lee’s To Kill a Mockingbird. I know, even I’m surprised I hadn’t already read it, but I’ve not, nor seen the movie…though nearly halfway through, I could easily cast Gregory Peck. Whatta book.
Anyway, with the holiday weekend approaching and a little – hopefully – free time, not to mention cooler temperatures, I hope to be catching up with you all shortly on all of that. Well, most of it. We’ll see.
Meanwhile, Happy Summer and Good Solstice to you. Also, Happy Pride.
