Lord, it's been a crazy spring and summer isn't gearing up to be particularly lazy.
The puppies have discovered the San Gabriel river, the birds have discovered the 9 bird feeders and 3 bird baths in the yard. The bunnies and squirrels found the corn feeder and all the cactus (yes, I know it's cacti, but that's so blasted pretentious-sounding...) are growing wildly.
We having a low, low key Memorial Day this year -- we're definitely grilling out. We'll do steaks on Friday and chicken breasts on Saturday, but I need to ponder maybe doing a brisket for Memorial Day proper. Doesn't that sound good? Brisket, potato salad, layer salad and cherry pie?
Dude, I think I made a plan.
Julia Talbot and I got together and we're starting a big long summer contest for the choice between a Nook or a Kindle Fire. All you have to do to be entered is to enter one of our other contests -- here, on our blogs, on Facebook or Twitter or our monthly newsletter.
For today, though, I'm giving away a signed copy of one of my print books -- just comment here, let me know which one you'd like, and I'll choose someone randomly tomorrow.
I hope y'all have a good one, that you get to see something this week that makes you smile, and that y'all hear a song that you have to sing along with.
Because sometimes fistfights are foreplay. ;-)
