Marvelous Monday


Hello Everyone!! How’s everyone today? Another rainy day here in New England, and with the exception of a ton of fungi growing, ugh, everything does look quite lush in the yard and gardens. I have saved a ton of water this year and not watering as much, so that’s Marvelous!! How’s the weather where you are? I did get to fill in a little time for swimming then lounging in the pool with the hubby on Saturday while we had a break in the rain, even if shortly. That was the first time I had really been able to enjoy it for a length of time this summer so far.

The weekend was full of playing Rummikub with my husband, Paul and resting, a date night in, catching up on some binge watching and working on some pending projects. It was productive enough but still relaxing.

I did get an update today on my paperback book when speaking to an Amazon Representative today. The technical issues that they’re having should resolve itself in a few days. I sure hope so! I’ll be posting on the blog when the paperback is able to be ordered. Thanks to all of you who have been patient and to those who have been messaging me wondering about the book. I really appreciate your never-ending support!

Today, we had a Mama deer and her 2 fawns in our yard on the trail!! It was a beautiful sight!

I’ve been spotted!
So sweet!
