Sunday Salon for 4 June — 6 Comments

  1. I have gotten distracted from writing my novel—focusing on finding just the right notebook or app, researching the novel, setting up my writing space—so many times in the past. I’m trying to focus on writing itself and not concerning myself with the actual quality of what I write. My plan is to have a novel completed by the end of October.

    The temperatures soar here in the summer, but we almost always have a good breeze coming off the Gulf. I’m looking forward to starting my swimming class tomorrow.

  2. I hope you had a nice walk! The weather here has been so nice. A little gloomy in the mornings with the marine layer setting in, but the afternoons are sunny and bright. Not too hot. I am not going to hold my breath though for a mild summer. I imagine it will warm up soon enough.

    I have heard such great things about Alexis Hall’s books. I need to give them a try. I hope your writing goes well and you are able to get back into it more.

    Have a great week, Joy!

  3. I need to pick up strawberries from the vendors on the road. There’s several, I just need to make sure I have some cash on hand to stop. I love fresh sweet strawberries!

    Yes, this time of year it’s best to get exercise over with early or you end up having to go real late to beat the heat. Glad to hear you’re enjoying Hall’s books. I’ve seen a lot of good things about them!

  4. We were having beautiful summer weather in CT last week, then slipped right back into cool weather over the weekend. No complaints though, still better than FL humidity! Sounds like your group had a good discussion of Beautiful Country.I really enjoyed that book, too. Hope you have a good week.

  5. Yes to strawberries! Strawberry season here is not for a couple of weeks yet, but it is always great. The local ones just have a super flavor that doesn’t travel from California (though in the Santa Barbara Farmers’ Market, I’ve had great ones, so it’s really the travel time and ripeness that does it).
    best, mae at
