Writing and Reviews – Denise Pasutti
Yeah, I’m a slacker. Tough week, last week. Moving forward. Today is more of just here’s what I’m planning for summer – which kind of starts now with the May long weekend (summer solstice is June 20, 2020). This will be an unusual summer as the world continues to adjust to life during a pandemic. It is far from over as we wait for a vaccine and what better way to enjoy the nicer weather than reading outside or with fresh air blowing through the window or on less than nice days, binging favourite shows.
