June snuck up on me. In fact, the first five months of this year have gone by in a blur. I am surrounded by stacks of books and lots of paperwork. This even as I read more and more on my digital reader and try not to hold on to so much paperwork. Still, it comes.
The Latecomer is my newest favorite book. Love the cover. Love the story. Love the writing. Don’t miss it.
Posted my summer reading list last week. I will be adding more books that are great to read this summer as the days go flying by.
We are looking forward to visiting my daughter and her family in Asheville. Grand dog Willow is growing so big. And the grandkids are really become adults. This will be mid July.
Today is first day of hurricane season. Not something I look forward to. There is already something barreling into the Gulf via Mexico. We will most likely experience plenty of rain and some wind. I’ve been praying for rain. Be careful what you ask for
We have planted two more avocado trees. Pretty soon the backyard will look like a farm. LOL. My husband has been enjoying the experience and so we are planning other parts of our yard.
I am excited about nine upcoming books for June.

I’m trying hard to get caught up. I always think the summer will bring me time to do just that. I can at least get more organized. Crazy artist type.
I had a delightful lunch at Wisteria Tearoom yesterday. Experienced the pineapple/coconut tea served in vintage pot with sweet tea cup. Was like stepping back in time. Right here in our own downtown Fort Myers. Met another book lover and we chatted books and book stuff like magpies. A good time was had.
Do you have big plans for summer? I know a lot of people are traveling this year, now that we can. I’d love to hear from you.
I am very thankful for big groups of readers who filled rooms for my book events this past season. It was truly wonderful to see everyone’s faces once again. And a few new clubs. Loved every moment of it!
You may be wondering what I’m reading now. HORSE by Geraldine Brooks
