In my area, the schools let out this week, and summer officially begins. I know the kids are really excited, just like we were when we were children.
Actually, I’m pretty excited too. Summer is supposed to be about relaxation and rejuvenation. Just about now, I need both, and so do most of the folks I know. Maybe it’s because we had such a fierce winter, but we were already dreaming of walks on the beach and food on the grill in March. It’s taken awhile to get here, but we sure are ready for long and lazy days of doing nothing important.
Over Memorial Day, I began reading a spy novel, which I finished this past weekend. Deliver Us From Evil by David Baldacci was a good read. My mother got me hooked on this type of suspense novel years ago, and they make their rounds through our family. The book I’m really looking forward to is Brad Thor’s newest novel, Foreign Influence, due out at the end of this month. I have read everything he’s written, and I guess Thor has become one of my favorite authors. He’s a master at drawing you into the lives of his characters and the adventures they have.
Anyway, whatever it is you do in the summer, start making plans. It’s here :). What are you most looking forward to?
