well…summer has been mild and gorgeous, particularly on the lake and of course in my bookshop. now at the end of august we are finally experiencing some of those 100 degree meltdowns. (though of course the bookstore is cool. i close the curtains in the am to shade the morning sun) it’s been a fantastic summer. my community has been so supportive and as always, interesting. visitors have been exotic and fascinating. lexie (who now works for books as she and her mom have opened a beautiful kitchen shop accross the street) led the Harry Potter book release ceremony complete with a midnight unveiling. we entertained several local authors (with more coming soon) and open friday eves to support the lake county arts council’s monthly affair.
