Congratulations to Connie Cox, fellow writer and blogger, for winning the latest giveaway! I’ll be putting copies of Little Town, Great Big Life and Cold Tea on a Hot Day in the mail to her.
My thanks to all of you for visiting my blog, celebrating the new book with me, and for your kind and generous comments about my books. To know that my stories are enjoyed and give respite from a quite hectic at times world gives me, as a writer, such satisfaction. It is great encouragement to keep writing. Is there any better gift for anyone, than encouragement? Thank you, thank you all.
Now, speaking of some cold tea on a hot day, that is just what is needed around here these days. Summer has arrived! When I awoke just at sunrise, the outside of every single window was sweat-lined from the humidity. Here is a photo of crinum lilies beneath the pecan tree. They are foggy, because the camera lens fogged in the humidity. Peaceful in the early sultry morning. I hold the feeling in my heart as I walk barefoot in the wet grass.
There’s only one thing to do on these sultry days — read some good books. I just finished Tears of the Giraffe, which is the second book of the #1 Ladies Detective Agency Books. If you have not read them, give yourself the treat.
