This week’s winners in our ongoing contest are: Gale Sroelov and Caryn Horn, both of whom will receive a signed copy of my latest book, “The Marriage Season”. As always, a new round begins today–comment, and you’re in. Two NEW winners will be chosen at random, notified by Jen, and announced right here this coming Monday.
It was a quiet Fourth–blessedly quiet–here on the Triple L. I read, walked the dog (repeatedly), pedalled industriously on my exercise bike to earn my 100% on my Activelink bracelet, and, yesterday, bestirred myself to visit the nail salon for a badly needed glamming up and, finally, the grocery store for COLD things to eat. Watermelon, my beloved kale salad, the rest. The Yorkie, Bernice, was mildly irritated with me for slipping out of the house without her, but, in the way of dogs, she forgave me quickly. Our barn walks were so hot that I draped a wet washcloth over Bernice’s little back to keep her from roasting.
Book to recommend: “My Grandmother Asked Me to Tell You She’s Sorry”, by Fredrik Backman. Mr. Backman is the author of another favorite of mine, “A Man Called Ove”, which was recommended to me by my sister, Sally. The new story is magical, beautifully written–in short, I’ll be very surprised if it doesn’t become a mega-hit, feature-film phenomenon. I enjoyed every word!
That’s the news for Monday.
