This is my last free weekend for a while. A long while. Too long…but that’s another post.
It’s also the last gasp of summer. To be honest, we’ve not had much in the way of heat in the Pacific Northwest this year and I like it. But we’ll pretend it’s been terrible steamy and go with the flow. Let’s pull the stops out and make this a weekend to indulge, Carribbean style. Throw open the windows and fire up the grill. Get those coals glowing and prepare a feast fit for dancing on the beach. There’s nothing like the smell of spice and fruit and flame to bring the islands into your living room. Throw on a little Bob Marley music and it’s like you’re almost there…
1. Jamaican Jerk Rub
2. Chicken Kabobs
3. Mango Fruit Relish
4. Carribbean Summer Salad
5. Mango Margaritas
Grab those last rays of sunshine, take the old flipflops out for one last scuffle around the park, and get ready to hunker down for the autumn chill. If summer eluded your busy schedule, an emergency weekend in Maui might be calling your name…

Apparently we had all your summer heat down here in the southeast. I've spent the summer trying to avoid aforementioned heat, and polishing my WIP to get it out the door.Lovely post. Makes me want to go to Maui. Let's close our eyes and pretend we're there now. Ah, see what a great imagination can do? LOL

I could use a visit to Maui also…I've heard there's a writer's conference…I hope your cool weather arrives soon and the polishing on your WIP goes smoothly. Thanks for visiting.

I spent most of my summer indoors. The heat and sun are too harsh on me. So I focused on writing instead. 0:-)

When I lived in a really hot climate, I spent so much time indoors for the same reason. At least getting some writing done is a nice bonus!
