Wishful summer thinking

Eek! I'm late, I'm late, for a very important date!!

My excuse is I had family visiting. And well, know how it can be sometimes.

Anyway, I'd love to say that I was late because I've been lounging by the pool and reading tons of fabulous books in between writing some (hopefully) even more fabulous ones. Alas, I'm preparing to move at the end of the summer.

No vacation for me this year, just packing boxes and well, more packing boxes.

I'll be moving to Long Island (near Stonybrook) so if anyone has any ins and outs of the area, I'd loved to hear about it!

But finally, I'll get to the point of this post. My summer (like my post here) is looking to be a bit hectic (I don't thinkI'll be home for a weekend until I have a new home) so I want to know what you're all doing this summer? I want to hear about your fabulous summer vacations. I want to hear about relaxing around the pool and watching sexy pool boys.

How are you spending your summer? And here's the kicker, if you could spend your summer anyway possible, how would you spend it?

I think I'd like to spend my summer sunning with him.

Everybody who posts today or tomorrow (since I'm late I'm going to extend my contest) will be entered into a drawing for a copy of either Tempting Fate or Loving Fate - your choice.

I'm job hunting this summer. What I would really like to be doing is having a Thai/Bali-style massage with my dream hunk in a private beach resort.

We already had our summer vacation. In early June we went to SW Florida to see my family for a week and we left our toddler with my sister and mother for a few days so we could celebrate our anniversary in Orlando. I will be going to SW Florida again this coming weekend for four days because my sister and my mother are hosting me a baby shower. The rest of my summer will probably be spent getting things ready for the baby. She is due in October. This will be my last baby shower since this will be my last child so I intend to enjoy it as much as possible.

I will be spending my summer tending my flowers and my vegetable garden. If I could I would spend my summer on the beach in Maui.

Hmmm... Any way possible? On the coast of somewhere beautiful, honeymooning with Mr. Laine on a secluded island.

To bad the extent of my pool time lately has been flinging pesky frogs from it!

Good luck with the move!

For me perfect summer would be under a shady tree with an ice cold drink picturing the perfect hero from my latest romance novel beside me. Reality, 9-5 work stufk in the office!

Emma, I live in Newport, RI. Please let me know if you decide to visit. Maybe we could tour a mansion or something. I'm not doing anything special this summer. I wish I could spend my summer in Scotland. Or hanging out in bars with British Marine Commandoes. Or sitting in the desert smoking peyote with a bunch of elderly Native Americans.

I just moved -- and am still in the process of adjusting to my new much smaller digs. I had no place for my books. arrgh! I'm happy to say the carpenter is in the process of installing over 200 linear feet of shelving as I type. So, I will be all happy and "nested" and able to write again.

So, I feel for you, Emma. Just take one day at a time and everything will work out just fine. Oh, and if your movers look like the guy in the picture -- have fun!

This summer we are just staying home and doing things around the house. Also taking care of one of our daughter's four bengal cats (two are four week old kittens) besides our own kitty. One of her kitties likes to chew on books (so I can't leave any of my books laying around) and other assorted things like wires, curtains, carpets etc. Can't take your eyes off of him! LOL Never a dull moment!
