Summertime and the readin’ is easy…

…or at least, that is the plan, now that life might be settling down here to a calm hum.

For the last couple of months, life –and death— has interrupted my reading flow. I’m going to try to finish The Age of Doubt, the 14th in the Inspector Montalbano series, which I have been trying to read, and finish since April. I also might dip into The Network Effect, part of the Murderbot Diaries, by Martha Wells.

Other than reading, the only other plans I have this weekend are watching Buster Keaton movies (recently rented a few along with a documentary about him) and listening to chill music Sunday afternoon into Sunday evening for the 15th edition of The Chill Out Tent, a special “Summer Solstice Sleepover.”

So whatchya up to this weekend? Reading, watching, listening to, doing anything good this weekend? Please share in the comments.

  1. This week looks to be a slow one. Hopefully. I got up early specifically this morning so that I could sit and read blogs (and actually have time to comment). I’ve missed this daily ritual of blog reading. It’s nice and feels like a morning chat with friends in a way.


  2. I’ve been cooking—beans, potato salad, pie, cookies—for a get-together with my dad this afternoon. I’m apprehensive as a brother refuses to get the vaccine and my sister refuses to allow him to attend (it’s at her house) unless he wears a mask. I hope we do not end up on the news.

    I will be visiting the Chill Out Tent when I get home. Maybe with a glass of wine.


  3. What a clever word spin for your header! Love it! Here in SA it’s actually rather cold, although we had some lovely weather the last two days.

    I also struggle to juggle work, life and reading a bit at the moment! But hey, we’ll finish those books.

    Take care!

  4. I’ve got a niece visiting for a few days, which is really fun. It’s especially nice for my daughter to have her cousin here.


  5. We celebrated Father’s Day tonight with dinner at a chicken cafe the hub and kids love. Got some fancy churros for dessert. Now they are watching a game and I am going to sneak in a few chapters of The Last Thing He Told Me.


  6. We seem to be very sluggish, this weekend, but we’ve done a little housework and reading (The Days of Abandonment by Elena Ferrante), ate lunch out, and I’m currently sitting with an icepack on my hip. Gettin’old.
