Picoblog Question – 2020 – Post #32

Fall begins on September 22. How will you enjoy the longer (or shorter) evenings?

My two cents, but please share yours:

Since September in Texas is still plenty hot, I plan to enjoy tall glasses of icy apple cider in the evenings, while reading an entertaining novel or two.

How about you?

What are you currently reading, and are you enjoying your books?

My two cents, but please share yours:

For fiction, I’m starting In the Blood by Lisa Unger, this month’s selection for my neighborhood book club.

For nonfiction, I’m finally reading Save the Cat! by Blake Snyder. I can already see why it became a classic for fiction writers.

Picoblog Question – 2020 – Post #31

With the arrival of September, how will you celebrate the change in the seasons?

My two cents, but please share yours:

I’m shifting to my fall comfort-food recipes. First on the list is homemade meatloaf made in the microwave.

I use any of several regular family recipes, place the chosen mixture in a microwave-safe casserole dish, and–here’s the trick–form the meatloaf into a circular-wreath shape, including the hole in the middle. Then I nuke the meatloaf for 15 minutes, check it, and nuke for a few minutes more as needed.

How about you?

What movie would be perfect to watch in September?

My two cents, but please share yours:

This month, I’m going with the haunting romance The Lake House (2006). This touching film features Sandra Bullock, Christopher Plummer, and Keanu Reeves.
