Tuesday Tell-Tales.

Just your typical Tuesday.


You know, where you feel like having a cannonball party? So why the heck not!


It’s just so much more fun to get into the water by making a real splash! :)) Am I right or am I right?

And those jumps are seriously fun until you (read me) nearly lose a pair of sunglasses. Shhhh, but don’t tell anyone.

Unfortunately, the pair of shades I was wearing flew off my face immediately upon impact. But fortunately, I was able to recover them seconds after resurfacing as they were quickly sinking toward the bottom. Phew! Close call.

Let’s see, what else?

Ooooh, what’s everyone reading these days? I myself have been a reading machine lately. You know, with oodles of free time (and a rainy day or two) while hanging in Christmas Cove the past week and a half. I’ve finished The Matchmaker by Elin Hilderbrand, Steal Like an Artist: 10 Things No One Told You About Being Creative by Austin Kleon, Is Everyone Hanging Out With Me? by Mindy Kaling, and Summer at Willow Lake by Susan Wiggs.

A total random mix of books and nothing heavy or scholastic, but I like what I like. No apologies for that.

Mindy Kaling’s book was funny, but not exactly what I expected so I’d grade it a B- to C. Steal Like An Artist was a super duper quickie read, but I definitely got a tiny spark of inspiration out of it. And the other two (Summer at Willow Lake and The Matchmaker) were both easy reads my mom recommended and I actually really really truly loved both.

If you’ve read something spectacular lately, pretty puhlease let me know. :))

And that’s that. A few cannonballs, an almost lost pair of shades, and some easy reading. Life does not suck.

I’m about 1/3rd of the way in to ‘The Husband’s Secret’ and LOVING it so far. I also heard great things about Amy Poehler’s book.

Currently reading “Wild” and loving it. Another great book that is fantastic and so fun to read in these parts is Don’t Stop the Carnival by Herman Hesse. It is considered “literature” (so not super light) but still easy to read and one of my most favorite books. Love it.

I just finished All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr. It was a really nice read. Also, the Circle by Dave Egger was a good commentary on social media gone wrong.

Thanks again for blogging! I love being able to see and read about your adventures.

Finished WILD by Cheryl Strayed a few weeks ago, LOVED it. Just bought UNBROKEN because everyone keeps telling me it’s so interesting. I read the LIFE LIST in December and thought it was really cute and certainly not scholastic.

I always enjoy your photos and light hearted writing. Keep it coming.

I love all the Susan Wiggs books! I’m currently reading the latest of Catherine Coulter’s FBI series. And I love reading your posts, so much fun.

we’re planning to do something very similar to what you’re doing right now, but have so many questions about cost and permits and visas and everything else, how can we contact you , or what will be the best way to get some information from you and your experience
