Happy Memorial Day!

I hope you're all having a wonderful Memorial Day! I had planned to do lots of revisions this weekend, but then a wondrous thing happened. The sun shone in Rochester, New York all weekend!

That never happens. Ever.

So I spent the weekend outside. I bought a trampoline! I went to a cookout! I barbecued chicken and drank beer! I did no writing whatsoever!

I can see I'm going to need to recall last year's summer strategies for writing while the sun is shining. After this long, long winter, I've apparently forgotten them all. I never had much luck with the sunlight bouncing off the laptop screen. I'd like to blame the kids, but I know in my heart that I'm the one who can't sit still with Spring Fever.

I also know in my heart that this is Upstate New York and it could easily snow next week. So forgive me, writing muses, for the taking the weekend off. This week's top priority will be remembering all my summertime writing strategies. I promise.

I am SO JEALOUS of your trampoline. Everytime I see one, I keep telling my husband I want one. I especially want a water one, though I have no where to put it.

Sounds like you had a nice weekend. And definitely don't feel bad for enjoying your weekend.

Those pictures are gorgeous. I spent my childhood growing up in Cortland, NY and yes, it always rains. We always planned on rain for an event (or heaps of snow) and then had a sun plan (as opposed to a rain plan).

Glad you had fun!
