May whizzed by in a blur. Can you believe it’s JUNE already? Wow!
The A to Z Challenge in April now a distant memory, I decided to take a few weeks away from the online world to recharge my batteries. I think there are times when you need to step back and have a break. I’m snowed under at the day job so REALLY needed the break 🙂
It gave me an opportunity to finish the book I was reading, Bound by J. Elizabeth Hill. I really enjoyed this first book of the fantasy trilogy and will post a review later in the month. You can follow Julie over at Word Flows.
It’s a good job I’m not doing the Eclectic Reading Challenge this year as I’ve hardly read anything. I do have another book review to do and after my current read (Odd Hours: Odd Thomas #4), next on my list is The Six Train To Wisconsin by Kourtney Heintz.

My two challenges for this year were the A to Z and another pop at NaNo. One down and one on the horizon.
A few weeks ago, on a nice sunny day, we journeyed over to the east coast to see the sea. I always feel better when I see the sea. A couple of sandy shots below.
Despite what it looks like in the pictures, it was a little chilly, but still a very nice day.
How are you all doing with your goals for 2013?
