Wednesday I’ve got Friday on my mind…

I forgot what you call this drink but it’s Campari and orange juice and it just screams “summer.” One lasts for a long time and does not impede the tongue, the brain, the writing or reading process.
Funny thing, though. It makes housework, lists and honey do’s go away.
Book recommendations, based on the above:
THE BLOOD ORANGES by John Hawkes. I read this in college, sometime after my study abroad when I was introduced to blood oranges and loved them. However, the book fell flat for me in comparison to the experience and the taste of those odd mystical little oranges that we scompfed down, always thirsty.
GREENGAGE SUMMER by Rumer Godden. It’s one of those books you might have read ages ago but you remember it, remember that you loved it and you wish you had purchased it rather than borrowing it from the library. Now it’s no longer in print! A coming of age story, set in the French countryside, about a gaggle of children and their mum, but mostly the children. And well worth the read… a different kind of summer read.
PS A greengage is a green to yellow plum-ish fruit, sweet and delicious, and considered a “dessert plum.” Yum.
