From annamaria’s Desk

The weekend is usually a time for rest or maybe running all the errands we have no time for during the working week. Likewise, the tour will take the weekend off and resume on Monday, June 9.

Traffic is usually slower on weekends, even I’m slower on weekends as I get out of bed around 7:30-8:00 o’clock instead of the usual 5:55am. To me the extra hour or two are heaven-sent. I enjoy them to the fullest.

I then indulge in a triple espresso with a dash of unsweetened almond milk. The mornings are all mine. The girls love to sleep in on Saturdays so the house is quiet and serene.

I’ve finished reading Demon Stones for my friend Michael and now I’m reading The Globalization Paradox by Dani Rodrik–yes, some heavy-duty reading. I never know when I’ll need to use economics and globalization in one of my novels. Depending on where White Swans is going, it will be handy to know a little more in-depth about the subject.

A New Era, is shaping up quite nicely and I’m aiming to complete the writing in a week or two so I can concentrate on the initial edits before turning it over to my editor.

What is your weekend indulgence? Do you enjoy the quiet mornings filled with the chirping of birds?

Well, I’m off to read about globalization. I hope you all have a safe and relaxing weekend.
