Happy Summer Solstice! The LONGEST brightest most-sunshiny day of the year!
I *think* it is today. That’s what my quick google research resulted in telling me, but when I researched sunrise and sunset times, it seemed to me that yesterday was longer by one minute. Whateveh?! i have not seen any press on it, which strikes me odd. oh well.
The point here is that I wanted to blog today and I don’t have any books I want to review. I’m in the middle of #windupbird by #murakami over in Tweet-Land and have about 150 pages still to read. What a long book. Fitting for a long day.
But I have chores to complete: laundry, mow, vacuum & dust (I mean, dust and then vacuum), give more attention to some spots on the carpet, pick up dog poop (which will get done before the mowing – obviously, this list is not in order), write some ThankYou notes, find my IKEA receipt that will save me $.037 on my next purchase (seriously?!) which will be tomorrow when I meet Dawn of She Is Too Fond of Books, and call my aunt. That last item is probably the most important of all the tasks. I have to be at work at 4:15 ish. I’m working the evening shift.
So here are my little literary tidbits for this Tuesday:
I get to read Still Missing by Chevy Stevens for next book club. I ended up not having the choice because our boat arrived that week and the day of club was the only day my husband had to clean and move in. This book looks terrifying. I’m a little nervous about it.
I have a few reviews I could write but it’s been so long already! Tess of the D’Urbervilles, a few DNFs and not-yet-gotten-to-part-2s and True Grit but I want to wait and see the latest movie and wrap it up as read-book-see-movie post.
and, finally, the boat is awesome. I really like it and we are just thrilled. Hopefully the sign guys will put our name on the vessel this week. Here’s a photo from Sunday morning – Esther’s first boat ride. She did fine.
Have a Great Summer!!!
