July IWSG And I’m Still In France


Sooo, this happened. I contracted covid the last week of our trip, which means I didn’t go home. My husband did because his visa ran out and he didn’t get Covid. I’ll be here another 10 days and I must say, if one needs to be in quarantine there are worse places to be! My parents-in-law are amazingly wonderful and caring and they have nursed me back to health (with us following ALL Guidelines for their safety) with thoughtfulness and kindness. I am happy to report after 13 days of dealing with the symptoms I tested negative yesterday. I am still not up to speed, but knowing I’m no longer a danger to my beloved “beau-parents” is a huge relief. I hate to think how sick I might have been had I not been vaccinated, because this has been a long haul and I’m not yet my usual self. Experiencing this has not been fun and I hope that anyone else who has had it or has it now had or has had a mild case. 

See? Worse places to be. I hope all of you have a safe and enjoyable summer…

IWSG Question of the month: if you could live in a book world which one would it be?

PERN Anne McCaffery’s  world of dragons. I have been waiting soooo long for a movie to be made, but so far nothing has happened. If I were rich, I would produce a film and hire her son to write the screenplay. If you like sci-if/fantasy, PERN is a world worth visiting.

Speaking of visiting, please visit our IWSG co-hosts today and thank them for their care of us!

Also, writing this on my IPad, so not great at fixing links. 



  1. Living among the dragons of Pern is a great choice!
    Sorry you caught the covid, glad you're feeling better. Here's to hoping you don't get long covid issue! šŸ„‚ Long life and improved health!
    For the IWSG July prompt asking which book world I would live in, I narrowed it down to three choices.
    One is a short-story I published. One is from a popular series. And one is better known from television, but there are books. It's all on my blog.
    Today's Google Doodle g.co/doodle/5m9rrry This is a tribute to Charlie Hill of the Oneida Nation, the first Native American stand-up comedian to be on a nationally broadcast television show.
    Over at Operation Awesome, our Pass or Pages query contest is open this week with July's family saga genre. Know any writers who might want to enter?

  2. Sorry you got it! At least you were stuck in a good place and didn't give it to anyone else.

  3. Hope you continue to feel better!

  4. So sorry you got COVID but glad you have a lovely place to quarantine. Safe travels home!

  5. Hope you continue to recover. What wonderful in-laws you have to take care of you. Pern would be a great world to live in.

  6. I wish you all the strength to recover faster! Take rest :D

  7. My (vaxed) daughter and her boyfriend have it. I guess it's not a 'pandemic of the unvaccinated' after all. LOL Hope you feel better soon, and hope your hubby doesn't come down with it.

  8. Hi Lisa - so pleased you had most of your holiday before the dreaded virus decided to nobble you - but glad you're feeling easier and are on your way to better health. So fortunate with your in-laws ... and thankfully you were there. Cheers Hilary

  9. We're traveling in Canada and on arriving in Vancouver, I came down with a nasty, debilitating cold. Tested twice for Covid, both times negative. Such a relief. So glad you are recovering and in a place where you can be taken care of in such a loving way. Imagine being quarantined in a hotel! May the coming month be better for you!
