Sunday Salon - Back in the Saddle
Happy Father's Day! My dad, Richie, is off living his dream in Shenzhen, China, so we won't be taking him out to brunch but I hope he's having a great day.
This week has been all about re-entry. I had San Francisco; I had BEA; I had Bread Loaf; and I had a quilting retreat. Then I had a cold. Now I almost have my routine back.
The rough draft of my translation is done. Tomorrow I'll print it out and start the editing process. I'm excited. I have another book on deck I want to do, a public-domain historical novel, and I plan to re-join the French Institute here in NYC so I have a nice Frenchy place to do my work and the resources I need at hand. Also I love free-movie Tuesdays.
And I'm back on track with reading- no more half-finishing boring books. I have too many TBRs post-BEA. I'm loving all the books I'm reading now.
Mostly I'm just loving that it's summer and reliably warm every day. The city I live in is utterly delightful when the sun is out. Isn't everyone's? No but really, it's amazing here. Amazing views of NYC, lots of green space, a whole entire pier loaded with food trucks every night. What more could I ask for?
Doing this writing, even if it never pans out, has really put a spring in my step and given me a reason to get up in the morning. I love what I'm doing. Like I said I don't know where it's going but I want to follow.
Today I have a few hours at the bookstore in the afternoon and some relaxing beforehand. Hope you are having a great day whatever you're up to.
