#LongandShortreviews #Weeklybloggingchallenge 3.25.2020


Favorite things to do in the Spring is today’s blogging topic.

Can I just say this: I love Spring!!!
I live in New England, where winter can be 6 months long.

Not kidding…not even a little.

One year we had snow on Halloween and then in May, which is my birthday month, we still had snow on the ground.

Do you know how depressing that can get? Even to hibernators and introverts and cold intolerants like me??

As soon as I see a crocus trying to sprout its way through the dead grass, I start to get happy because that means winter is ending. Yay.

So, when the weather finally does get good ( and before allergy season annihilates me), my favorite spring thing to do is take long walks with my husband.

Now for some people that may seem the height of boring with a capital B! But his life is sosos busy and the fact he works 13-14 hour days and weekends means we don’t get to spend a great deal of time together that doesn’t involve sleeping in the same bed or eating dinner together. On Sundays, we walk into and around town. We start at the down town center:

Walk along the business section:

And stop at a few places to visit with people we see who we know:

During those walks, hubby and I reconnect, talk about what’s going on in our lives, coming up for us, and plan.

And yes, we even sometimes hold hands while we are walking! Shocking, I know.

Ah, Spring.To quote Mark twain,

“It’s spring fever. That is what the name of it is. And when you’ve got it, you want—oh, you don’t quite know what it is you do want, but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so!”

Let’s see what some of the other authors in this blog challenge like to do in Spring : L&SR

Until next time ~ Peg

Highway Cafe April Blog Tour

I just love a blog tour and hop!

The arrival of April signals–in my neck of the woods–the arrival of Spring. Or as we natives call it, black fly season. You know: those pesky, annoying, pain-in-the-a** noseeums that swarm around your face, ears, eyes and cleavage?

God, I hate those bugs. I really do. Since I live in the woods I typically get inundated from the very first beautiful dry day we have to signify Spring, right up until Memorial day rolls around. Having an outside barbeque becomes aggravating, not to mention dangerous from everyone running into one another armed with cutlery to try and escape the odious little buggers. Gardening is a nightmare unless you are swathed from head to toe like an uber-mummy or rabid beekeeper. Trying to get in a little exercise walk outside becomes an occupation just to make sure you are doused in every bug repellant known to man– and those little PIA’s still swarm!

Every year I hope, pray, and offer up sacrifices to the Gods that this year–this year–we will be spared the invasion. And every year…we aren’t.

I don’t anticipate this year will be any different. Le sigh.

Oh well. At least I can stay inside and read a good book. And speaking of a good book ( shameless plug coming) this is my latest from Kensington/Lyrical. COOKING WITH KANDY

Sugar and spice and everything sexy make the perfect recipe for romance in this brand-new series by Peggy Jaeger. Look for exclusive recipes in each book!

Kandy Laine built her wildly popular food empire the old-fashioned way—starting with the basic ingredients of her grandmother’s recipes and flavoring it all with her particular brand of sweet spice. From her cookbooks to her hit TV show, Kandy is a kitchen queen—and suddenly someone is determined to poison her cup. With odd accidents and threatening messages piling up, strong-willed Kandy can’t protest when her team hires someone to keep her safe—but she can’t deny that the man for the job looks delicious. . .

Josh Keane is a private investigator, not a bodyguard. But with one eyeful of Kandy’s ebony curls and dimpled smile, he’s signing on to uncover who’s cooking up trouble for the gorgeous chef. As the attraction between them starts to simmer, it’s not easy to keep his mind on the job, but when the strange distractions turn to true danger, he’ll stop at nothing to keep Kandy safe—and show her that a future together is on the menu. . .

And…since this is blog tour that means GIVEAWAYS and prizes. I’ll be giving one luck winner an e-copy to COOKING WITH KANDY at the end of the tour. Click here for the link to visit other author blogs and to qualify for prizes and giveaways! And good luck! BLOG TOUR
