A favor ... and the view

Heard it through the email grapevine yesterday that the ACFW Book Club is voting on the August book selection and ~A SHORE THING ~ made the list (woot :). Would you consider voting for it? You have to be a book club member, and it's FREE to join. Just send a blank e-mail to: Then head on over to the yahoo book club site, click on "polls" (& vote for A Shore Thing :)) THANKS for considering this!

Okay, on to other things. We spent much of the weekend inland watching our youngest play in a soccer tourney. Let me just say ~ we got some sun! We're talking you-have-to-wear-a-tank-top-&-flip-flops-weather! But then we rolled back onto the coast and right into ... FOG. By the brrr in the air, you would have never guessed that we had sweltered much of the day beneath a gigantic heat lamp in the sky.

But as the saying goes, it's all good. (Am I the only one who hears that all the time???) Thinking about the different climates as close as my backyard, reminded me of other differences. Like this photo of the Atlantic Ocean from reader Wendy. Years ago, our fam rented a house in Nags Head on the Outer Banks and experienced the differences, like high humidity and a sun that rises out of water.

Whaa? Where we live along the west coast, people descend on the beaches at night to watch the sun sink into the sea, but on the east coast, it's all about the sunrises! Super fun for a visit when all the deadlines and other work brouhaha has been set aside, but since I'm NOT a morning person, this would never do on a regular basis ;-)) You?
