Hey, what’s going on? Two posts in one week? 

the August 1, 2013 version:


{I ‘lifted’ this great idea from Tournesol — she has a knack for writing interesting blog posts}

digging (as in liking): that I can pick blueberries in my backyard

drinking: home brewed iced tea (brewed with orange peels)

eating: at this moment nothing but about to grill some spuds and patty pan squash to go with a little crab cake

listening: to a bald eagle screeching in the backyard

wearing: a t-shirt that was once my mom’s – it’s white with adorable pastel butterflies embroidered in front; oh and dog-walking shorts

reading: just finished The Light Between Oceans and about to open The Hotel at the Corner of Bitter and Sweet

feeling: so content

weather: warm, sunny summer day, not a cloud in the sky and a wee bit of a breeze coming off the water

wanting: to be able to read sheet music so I can get on with learning to play piano

needing: more cardio

wishing: you know, I don’t wish for a lot. I love what I have

thinking: I should make a decision about that kitchen backsplash

enjoying: my bookclub

loving: that I can simply walk down to the beach and swim any time I feel like it

Perfect. I have many of the same sentiments. So great to be now. The title of your next book sounds intriguing.

I wish I had a bald eagle screeching in my backyard. How did you like The Light between Oceans? It’s on my list as well. As well as The Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet. I just finished The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, a great read.
As you guessed correctly, my family and I were in British Columbia for two weeks in July – Vancouver, Sunshine Coast, Vancouver Island, Whistler and a few days at our relatives’ farm in the Okanagan Valley – it was wonderful!
