Getting A New Perspective in Summer

Every summer millions of Americans go on vacations. Many go to a beach to enjoy the surf. Others enjoy the mountains for the cool nights. Still others like to visit other countries. but most of us want to get away from the “daily grind” so that we can come back to work refreshed and with a new perspective.

What I’ve been doing this summer besides traveling.482353_10200715632075133_668986910_n

Eating: at Bonefish in Southlake, Texas – a seafood restaurant. Had delicious Bang Bang Shrimp and Crab Cakes and really good Key Lime Pie.

 

Listening: to Il Divo. They are still putting out great music.clean_packshot_0

 

Buying: Soaker hoses from Garden.com to keep my garden alive.

 

Cooking: Make ahead meals- chicken artichoke spinach lasagna roll-ups, soups, flatlander chili, bacon wrapped meatloaf, chimichangas. Freezing vegetables from the garden.

Watching:

 Orphan Black on BBC about a woman  who assumes the identity of a look alike woman who commits suicide and discovers she’s one of many clones and someone is killing them one by one .orphan_black-show (1)

Graceland– based on a true story- about FBI, DEA, Customs agents  who move into a former drug dealer’s beautiful beach home and work as undercover  drug dealers. The house is named Graceland because the drug dealer liked Elvis.graceland-show

The Killing series reminds me of the Green River Killer case,

Longmire is about a modern day western sheriff.

WRITING: a romantic suspense.

  1. I like attending conferences and catching up on reading. It’s too hot to do much else. unless it’s to go somewhere cool.

    • Hey, Thorne, I’m with you on the cool weather. Scotland is great this time of year. Cool and green. I didn’t read much when I was there. I was too busy taking notes.
