You won’t find me here for the next few days. It’s that time in the season, when we pack the car to the hilt, leave behind the bustling city, and head north, where pine trees line a two-lane highway and dirt roads lead to a small, spring-fed lake.
Right now, I might be sitting on the dock, dipping my toes into the lake’s water, which is crisp and cold, working up the courage to jump in and swim (that always takes a while).
Or, I could be inside, near the window, looking out into dusk, mapping the silhouette of the treeline in my mind.
If I’m lucky, I’ll see loons. I’ll catch a nap. I’ll bask in the sun on a day when the south wind pushes off the Northern chill.
It’s completely possible that I’ll load up on junk food. More than once.
Whatever the story, I can promise I’m having fun.
So, while I enjoy all-things-lazy, here are some links for your pleasure:
- Laura Stanfill’s post, “Countdown to the Release of the Flipback.” If you haven’t heard of a flipback, check out her post (which includes links to all the research Laura has done on this new format of books). Flipback books, to me, seem like a mix between eBooks and old-school print: lightweight, but still a tactile experience.
- Savvy Housekeeping, a fun blog on topics from recycling to gardening to all things quirky and cool. Check this post out on making your own Popsicles (yay for summer fun!)
- Author, Yuvi Zalkow’s blog and his “I’m a Failed Writer” presentations, which you can enjoy even if you aren’t a writer. Grab a cup of coffee and take a minute to watch this one on time management.
I hope lazy days line your horizon, too!
