July seems to be the best time to enjoy the summer season.


It certainly has been great weather for the bbq, travel to various locations or just enjoying a staycation.

Staying at home works, often-times, with a slower pace of life for those few days. Beautiful sunsets abound!

Certainly, it gives a chance to get caught up on some reading, catch a movie or two.

In the book category, I recommend One Perfect Day, a novel by Lauraine Snelling. Admittedly, I was drawn to the wintry book cover filled with a single red and white figure amidst a forest of birch trees, my favourite. From the first page, I was drawn into the everyday lives of two families, their interactions and challenges. No spoilers here but Snelling, skillfully, weaves her fictional story that parallels real-life choices that face many families.

Movies will work for a rainy day.  Live theatre performances are plentiful as well.

Wherever you go this summer, enjoy!

  1. Beautiful sunset, Patricia!! The book sounds excellent as well…I like the idea of stay-cation…comforts of home are certainly ideal, in my way of thinking. 🙂


  2. Sounds like you’re having a lovely stay-cation. My summer reading is mostly mysteries, and I’m reading and enjoying the second Galbraith/Rowling book now, Silkworm. Great photo of the sunset the other night!
