Unfinished

I wanted to do a book heavy post on summer reading today, but I've been too busy being a lady who lunches, after she coffees, and before she takes children to stories and crafts at the library, feeds everyone pizza and then goes on to family branches to discuss the pater familias and his impending 70th birthday, BUT

I did manage to deliver Crafting Catherine's giveaway on our way over the hill. I now feel like a real bloggiste! That said it's Kilkenny time again, so we're heading down there next week after a brief chilly dip at the North Coast over the weekend, so another holiday break from the Land of the Tearful Strawberries!

I have a ticket for John Banville at the Cathedral, PC will listening to music in a bar, and there will be acrobats for the suns. This is possibly one of the best times in my year!

I'm not familiar with Banville, so now I am reading up on his books on Amazon...is he lecturing at the festival?
We'll just have to be patient and wait for the book post, but in the meantime, your blog is full of high culture; I appreciate learning new words, like bloggiste.
You know the book *Leisure, the Basis of Culture*? That's your life, I think.

I think you mut be confusing me with you, Gretchen Joanna! But this is a book title that interests me enormously!

Joy! I can tell you are zippy and happy! Your giveaway prize looks fun!

Oh, I get it now. I have to read both of our blogs to get the whole message. :-)

Hope you have a good time away. Your lecture sounds interesting, will we hear more?

About Kilkenny, Elizabethd, oh as much as you can bear, and then some!

I am very much looking forward to your book post, but am happy to hear the delay is the result of lunching. When my dear ones go back to school in 17 days, I will once again be a lunching lady. I can hardly wait!
