Stuck in the house, so I decided to do a little catching up. And I mean a very little catching up. It’s the 4th, it’s raining, and, on top of it all, I don’t feel well. Had hoped to swim in the pool (okay, it’s a 10-foot, blue, blow-up pool, but it’s the best my yard can handle), suck up some sun, and grill. Instead, I’ve napped, showered, and have now embarked on Episodes 4-6 of Star Wars. Excellent summer fare. Just like Jaws the other evening. Unfortunately, exhaustion overcame me just after Quint was swallowed whole by the shark. (That could never happen in my pool.)
Hope all are well and writing out there. But don’t forget to enjoy the summer too. It’s much too fleeting in New England, at least where we are. I’m hooking up a storm in preparation for next month’s art show along with gardening, working at the food pantry, and drinking Pinot grigio on the back deck. Meanwhile, I’m writing in my journal and storing up tidbits there and in my brain for some short stories later. (Had to have 4 stitches in my finger the other day – bad knife incident; but hospitals are great places to find ideas!)
What are you up to? The beach? Camping? Travel to new lands? By all means, share your summer stories here. They can be real or not; your choice. Just make them juicy fun. Happy summer adventuring!
(PS – Gotta go. We’ve just arrived in Mos Eisley. These are not the droids you’re looking for. Perhaps they serve Pinot grigio in the cantina.)
