And So it Goes...

This weekend, I:

  • Visited my sister who is ill and between treatments.  We had a wonderful afternoon at the beach.
  • Went out with my husband and daughter for a once-a-year treat, a fried seafood platter.
  • Spent hours digging and grubbing in the garden, staking plants, weeding, and removing sneaky poison ivy seedlings.
  • Prepared a Saturday night cookout for my family, including our next door relatives, my mother-in-law and a visiting brother-in-law.
  • Starting working on a first pass of revisions on UNDER THE APPLE TREE based on comments from my reader.  Good news.  She didn't hate it.
  • Went sailing with my husband twice.  In the same weekend?  Unheard of.  This set some kind of record, folks.
  • Watched a "super moon" rise over the beach.
  • Cooked another dinner, this time we were joined by daughter and friend she met at her new school orientation.
 This weekend, I did not:
  • Write a blog post.

I'm taking next week off from blogging.  Perhaps the next one too, we'll see how it goes.  At any rate, I'll be back no later than the next IWSG, scheduled for September 3.

Best wishes to all.  Enjoy the rest of the summer.

Take some time off and enjoy.

Sounds lovely! Enjoy your break. I took one too recently. They are totally necessary. Thanks for the lovely photographs. Looking forward to your return.

I'm all for taking a blog break; we all need a break from stuff, however much we love it. Enjoy :)

I love bullet points.

I am so happy your novel is coming along. Not hating it is really great!!!

Wow, what a packed, fun time! And a beautiful picture of the super moon.

Enjoy your time away from the keyboard. We all need time for renewal.

I saw that moon, wanted to take a picture, but was really tired so didn't feel like taking the walk down to the beach. My loss.

And really, sailing twice in one weekend. What is up with that?

I love this- so meaningful and thoughtful and personal. So happy to see your book moving forward.

I took a photo of the super moon too :) What a weekend - sometimes there are much better things to be doing than blogging :) Enjoy!

Enjoy your break from blogging. Sometimes it's nice to actually have a life, instead. Or so I've heard. ;)
