I keep waiting to have something interesting to say, but it doesn’t seem to be happening this week. I think I’m too tired from all the promotion. So here’s just a mish-mash of stuff:
1) I have 11 promotional events in June—3 left, and then I can hibernate for six weeks. I’m having lots of fun, and people have been very gracious and enthusiastic. I am, however, getting a little tired of the sound of my own voice. Talking about myself does NOT come naturally. The morning after an event, I always feel a little funny, as if I’d talked too much at a dinner party the night before.
2) Mr. Bodgepie (the duck) is proving to be elusive. We drove to the neighbor’s where he’s been hanging out. There he was, in the entrance to a big equipment shed. We pursued him deep into the shed as he scooted under the equipment. It was dark and confusing, with all the tires, etc. We were on our hands and knees. “Do you see him?” Melissa calls. The neighbor replies from the front of the shed. “He’s out here.” The little @#*& had doubled back on us. Melissa approached with the net and he took flight. Clearly we’re going to have to be smarter than the duck…
3) Melissa, lover of delicate flowers (which, I might add, doesn’t describe me!), is at it again. Found these scattered around the house the other day.
4) A few years ago Melissa planted a wild rose on the south side of the house, in an odd place. You couldn’t see it from the front yard or most of the back yard or the driveway. Why there? This spring, while sitting at my computer, I turned my head to the left and looked out the window. Oh, that’s why. What a sweetie….
Here’s to a wonderful summer for everyone, a summer full of surprising wild roses and other romantic stuff.
