How’s everyone doing – hanging in there? We’re keeping busy here. Spent the weekend pressure washing, mowing, finishing up the garage, and mopping the screened porch. Bicycles that hadn’t been ridden in years were dragged out and ridden through the neighborhood – and that seat isn’t any more comfortable than the last time I rode it. Still, it was a gorgeous weekend and nice to get out of the house.
My book club met last week! On Zoom, of course. We had about 14 members, and it was so good to see everyone and talk about books. The first thirty minutes were spent just catching up and checking in on how everyone’s doing. And our furry friends got to attend this meeting! Dogs, cats, and one ceramic cat (she keeps plants, not pets) made appearances. Bond was camera shy, which surprised me a little. And there was wine (we usually meet at the library)! The book topic this month was to read a retelling. My choice was The Traitor Prince by C.J. Redwine – a retelling of an Arabian tale entitled The False Prince. After more than two hours, fun was had by all and spirits were lifted. And we plan to do it again next month – maybe even sooner.
Like most people, I’ve been getting a good bit of reading done. This is probably the first time I’ve ever been ahead on my Goodreads challenge! I haven’t made any progres on the sequel to Subject A36, but it’s coming. I’m setting aside a couple hours tomorrow to read over what I wrote for NaNo. It’s time my characters and I became reacquainted.
Stay safe and take care!
