A Visit in Photos


What a lovey time we had the past few days.  My daughter Melissa who lives in Michigan and her boyfriend, came to visit for the first time in many months.  I think if anything good has come from Covid quarantines it is that we all appreciate our time together just a little bit more.  And take nothing for granted.

We went to the beach one day, golfed one day, went to some fun Florida type places for dinner and tropical drinks, but they wanted to relax and soak up the sun, so the best place to do that was poolside.  The best decision we made yet (besides moving to Florida in the first place) was putting in our pool, just for times like this.

And, it made our hearts happy to see them enjoying our home.  Pittsburgh daughter and son in law come in a few weeks and we look forward completing the reconnections and putting these separations behind us.

My Book Club Reading List


I have written many posts about both my old book club in Michigan and my new book club here in Florida.  The groups are very different and I still miss my close knit Michigan group where we met for dinner at each other’s homes.  It’s not quite the same with a neighborhood group that meets at a clubhouse, but also, a great way to get to know new friends on another level.  Either way, I get to indulge my book worm tendencies and not only read books that I may not normally read, but discuss them as well.

I missed the first discussion, but hope to make the rest as we work our way through covid restrictions (smaller size) and the late return of our seasonal residents who are waiting a bit longer to travel.

Below are the books we are reading and discussing over the next few months and if you would like to read along, I am always up for your opinions via comments or email.   

Happy Reading!

The Island of Sea Women by Lisa See

Radium Girls by Kate Moore

Unsheltered by Barbara Kingsolver

Women in Sunlight by Frances Mayes
