Hot here

We wait for summer in Maine. I mean, we really, really wait for it. Don't get me wrong, I love winter but I adore summer. When I saw the weather for today a few minutes ago, I jumped. Up and down. Really, like a little kid. Honestly, I nearly kissed the tv screen. But the weather guy, he was kind of...well, let's just say he wasn't my type.

So what does a romance writer do on a hot, sunny day in May? HA! I'll bet you're thinking I've got something slinky to put on, someone hot and hunky to do something wonderfully exciting with, don't you? I do, but probably not in the way you're thinking. Today I'm going to pull on an old bathing suit, grab some frayed shorts and a holey tshirt and take my slobbery little dogfriends and go walk on the beach. During the winter all kinds of crap gets tossed up on the beach and early spring is a good time to go pick some of it up and throw it away. Because really, we only have so much beachfront in the world. Why not do my part to keep the planet clean? Are you doing your part? Hmm?

All right, so that's what I'm doing today. What about you? What are you doing on this hot, sultry day?

Whatever it is you've got planned, I hope you have fun. And if you see rubbish on the ground, pick it up and put it in the trash. Please?
