Where did the Weekend Go? and New Books!


Yesterday was a long tiring day as we headed to New York City for Father's Day (just for the day). My husband's sons live in Manhattan and Philadelphia so they invited us to the city for brunch.  It was a fun day with perfect weather but, it made for a very long 12 hour day. I hope you all had a nice weekend as well.


The publishers were very generous last week, several new books arrived in my mailbox.  They all look really good but, I am especially looking forward to the new Allen Esken's book, The Heavens May Fall. (I've read his first two books, The Life We Bury and The Guise of Another. I  enjoyed them both.

    1. We are not fans of the big city; too congested for us but, we do it once a year to see family.

    1. Not us Vicki, we are not fans of the big city - dirty and congested.

  6. Sounds like a fun weekend.

    It is currently 114 here in So California and everything is so dry. Fires are breaking out which makes me nervous as heck. We have a couple more days of this. It's not normally this hot here.

    1. I feel bad for you out in So CA. I thought 86 and humid was hot, but today was a breezy 79 - perfect.

  10. Like another commenter here, I spent the weekend plus Monday, watering my yard early in the morning and huddled in the air-conditioned house. 110 degrees in my yard yesterday and smoke from wild fires. The newish books I plan to get to this week are Vinegar Girl by Anne Tyler and Arcadia by Iain Pears. It is only 93 today!

    1. Judy, I wouldn't want that kind of heat either.

  11. I am glad you had a nice visit with your husband's sons. That is a long drive! We ended up going out of town Saturday for the day, driving down to San Diego. Kind of an early Father's Day celebration. Look at all those great books! I hope you enjoy them. Have a great week, Diane!
