See You in August!


Her Royal Highness the Cat tells me
that it's time to take a little break.

"You're getting even duller, more
boring and repetitious than ever,"
she purred at me the other night.

"You need to pause, refresh, and
read a few books for a change.
You need to follow MY good example."


So I've decided to do exactly that.

I'm going to take July off from blogging,
sit out on my balcony, and
read some ACTUAL BOOKS!


NOT JUST 
Steve 'n Bucky
fanfiction online
I promise.


And I'll also be . . .

Hurry back, we miss you already!

Sixpence Notthewiser said...

Ohh that's a great idea!
I should grab a real book and head to the beach, too.
See you when you're back! Happy reading!

XOXO

Rosemary said...

Enjoy July on your balcony - I am busily reading my way through a pile of books that I have bought. I am not a really fast reader so only one book per week.
By the way I remember that you planned to visit Crete this Autumn - is that trip still on? I know that they have had very few cases there and that they were worried because they have a very large population of aged people in all the Greek islands, but I believe they are now open for tourists and business again.

Will miss you, and will eagerly await your return! Take care and have funnnn.

DEZMOND said...

Have fun and don't melt in the sun.

LL Cool Joe said...

Enjoy your break, you'll be missed.

Wicked fun times! Enjoy!

Enjoy your time "away"! Looking forward to your return with all kinds of insight and new knowledge. ;) -Jenn

Debra She Who Seeks said...

@ Rosemary -- No, I cancelled the Crete trip. I won't be traveling anywhere until there's a vaccine. My balcony is my tourist destination now, alas.

Well, I don't agree with HRH but I do agree you deserve a break. Enjoying your "holiday." I look forward to seeing your rich and beautiful shade of green in August. (Be sure to use plenty of green screen... GPF 30.)

anne marie in philly said...

sorry you had to cancel your trip. but the places you will go with a good book and a nice tall cool drink on the balcony! and HRH is wrong, you are NOT dull. see ya later, alligator!

The Happy Whisk said...

Hi Debra! Happy Reading and enjoy that blogging break. Those are great to take. I love that you canceled your trip and are going to stay safe. Here's to lots of fun reading. Cheers and boogie boogie.

Bon Voyage, Sporty!

Betty said...

jaz@octoberfarm said...

have a good month!

Busy Bee Suz said...

We will miss you, but enjoy your ME time!!!

Mistress Maddie said...

A good recharge is always a good thing!!!! Enjoy. We always have our mind for the best escapes.

Mike said...

I've thought about doing that. But the most I've done is about 5 days (weekdays).

Gia said...

Haha! Love the cat pics and ENJOY THE BREAK!!!

Linda said...

Enjoyed thoroughly my fourth PRIDE month via "She Who Seeks".

Never ceases to make me laugh out loud. I particularly love the memes where "christians" show up with signs that get covered over by happy people commenting back in one way or another. I particularly loved the one that had a hate sign that read:

HOMO
SEX
is

But the last word is covered by a joyously happy guy in a pink man shirt, victoriously holding a sign that says:

GREAT!!!!!

Anyways, thank you for making me laugh, cry and THINK.

Liz Hinds said...

We'll miss you! Enjoy the break. x

Martha said...

Enjoy your time off!

Hena Tayeb said...

See you in August. Have a lovely summer.

bobbie said...

Have a great July!!!

Anne Johnson said...

I really loved Plainsong by (I think) Kent Haruf. I'm sure of the last name. At first it doesn't seem to be going anywhere, but then it goes somewhere splendid.

e said...

Enjoy the break! Maybe you'll also do a little sketching on your balcony...

This N That said...

You will be missed..I'm thinking about doing the same thing...Enjoy your reading..Love the green eggs and Prosciutto..

Parnassus said...

Hello Debra, Enjoy your break. Maybe you'll do some drawing too and show us the results!

CraveCute said...

Have a nice break. I've read back through a bunch of your posts and they were terrific. Relax and enjoy summer!

Debra She Who Seeks said...

@ e -- Yeah, I've been thinking about getting my rear in gear to do a bit of art too. Today at the grocery store I bought a red pepper, not to eat, but to model for me for watercolours practice. Although I might make it do double-duty. Paint first, then eat.

Sooo-this-is-me said...

Enjoy your time away Debra, I'll miss your sense of humour and your sensible advice.

Marie Smith said...

Enjoy the break. Hope the weather is great there!

Susan Kane said...

Stretching out with a cold margarita sounds great.

I miss going to IKEA. A new one is being built within 10 miles of our town.

Janie Junebug said...

Enjoy your books. I love the titles, especially Pride and Racial Profiling.

Love,
Janie

Linda said...

Have a nice break! I hope you'll tell us what you've read, new titles are always interesting. I'm taking a break too from my blog, until September, alas to redecorate rooms, not for reading. :) Have fun and enjoy your vacation! X

Kay G. said...

But if you take JULY off, who will make me laugh?
You are just TOO funny!
Have a great break and your many fans will be ready for your return!

Joanne Noragon said...

You just enjoy, and bring those legs back brown.

Brian Joseph said...

Have a great July! I look forward to your return in the late summer.

Guillaume said...

Enjoy your time off (that said you can find time to read, blog and write).

^.^ said...

Have fun in da rain, ehem … sun :) Much love, cat.

Bruce.desertrat said...

A friend of mine retired in December. He lives in NYC. He *had* plans to travel.

And he did! He took a train trip across the country, long a bucket list thing...then...

"Okay, so once I retired I wanted to do a lot of traveling.
Well, Since my train trip I’ve been to:
Kitchenton,
Coucharado,
Chairview, and
Toiletchusetts.
That place was a real shithole!"

Enjoy your month's blogcation!

Kirk said...

Enjoy yourself. When you come back let us know what books you've read (other than the titles cited.)

Adam said...

Enjoy your July

Deborah said...

brewella deville said...

Enjoy your break. I hope you take lots of walks, tend a mini patio garden, and end up with piles of new drawings.

DVArtist said...

I will miss your posts for the next month. But I do understand rejuvenating and taking some time. Have a great month.

Bea said...

Enjoy July, my dear!

Lady M said...

Cheers Debra - have a great month off and I will look forward to your return. Your blog is always good fun.

JACKIESUE said...

Insomniac's Attic said...

I hope you have excellent weather for working on your tan! And be sure to take a copious amount of notes so you can share your reviews on all those books you plan on wading through during your time off!!! Hope your liquor cabinet is stocked up - reading is always more enjoyable with an adult beverage close at hand.

Barbara said...

I don't blame you for taking some time off but I sure will miss the laughs you share.

Bill Lisleman said...

you have a wicked tan developing.

Debra She Who Seeks said...

@ Bill Lisleman -- GROAN! Good one though.

Ol'Buzzard said...

You will be missed; but I understand. With all the craziness that seems to be the daily norm, I am blogging less: I feel that what I have to say pales in the madness.
These are crazy times.

pam nash said...

Taking time off is nice - breath, read, relax, see exciting things from your balcony. Then, let us know all the good stuff!

mshatch said...

I can't wait to hear about what books you've ready when you come back! Enjoy your vaca :)

Fundy Blue said...

Refresh and enjoy, Debra! And tell Her Royal Highness the Cat that I disagree with her, and not even respectfully, giver her status. You duller? More boring? Repetitious? Not! Never! No way! Perhaps your break will give me a chance to catch up ~ LOL Thanks for being an awesome blogging buddy. And Happy Canada Day. I can't wait to hear what you read! You and your Rare One please stay healthy, happy, and safe!

Rawknrobyn.blogspot.com said...

But, but nobody hosts a better party.

Enjoy your time away. It's well deserved!

Kirsten said...

Hurry back! I showed the images of your cat to my husband and he asked me if it was our cat! They look so much alike! Hope you enjoy your break and reading time and time with your kitty.

Ur-spo said...

I too wait until you return; I will miss you; I hope you have a good July.

Mildred Ratched said...

Have a fabulous July and enjoy each day.

Sue Bursztynski said...

Have a great read! My balcony gets cold after the morning is over, but it’s usually a good place for breakfast and a book! In summer, of course. Right now, it’s midwinter here, so I do my reading indoors.

Magaly Guerrero said...

Have a refreshing reading blast!
