HAPPY LONG WEEKEND! by Kathleen Lawless @kathleen lawless #romancegems


Long weekends are something most of us look forward to, whether we’re working, in school or retired.  In Canada, we had our holiday Monday earlier this week, while Memorial Day in the US and a bank holiday in the UK are on the horizon. 



This year, my brothers and sister and I celebrated by springing Dad from the retirement residence where he’s been in lockdown for over two months.  For the first time this year, all four of us were together for a visit with him, social distanced of course, outside in our lovely gazebo.  The little things we used to take for granted are slowly coming back.

To help kick off the holiday celebration this weekend, my boxed set of 4 award-winning historical romances, WIDOWS, BABIES, AND BRIDES, is on sale for only .99 cents, a saving of $9.  Grab yours here for a leisurely binge read.

Do you have plans for the long weekend? Or have you already enjoyed your extra day off where you are?  I'd love to hear which countries have their holiday at different times.


Wherever you're reading this, I hope you’re at least entering our Rafflecopter draw to win one of our Amazon gift cards.   http://www.rafflecopter.com/rafl/display/21df08a237/  

No matter what you get up to, be sure to have a happy, safe and healthy weekend.

    1. Thanks, Liz. We were getting really worried about Dad's frame of mind, given now bored and lonely he was.

  5. We had a long weekend last week. We are now allowed to widen our contacts here because the virus news is so good in our corner of the world. Good thing because we had our first sleepover night with our grandsons in months. Both parents are on the front line and are returning to regular shift work hours. We’re support staff for them (AKA the daycare). Nice way to celebrate!

  12. Sounds like you, your dad and your siblings had a great time in spite of the lockdown. My kids and I had the same opportunity the first weekend in May. I live in a Seniors only apartment bldg and we have been locked down since March 12. The last time I spent time with my kids was March 5 so it was a treat when my daughter arranged to bring the wine and hand sanitizer and we sat outside on the front porch of my bldg. Keeping the distance as required but we didn't wear masks but we also didn't touch, hug or kiss so we were OK. It was a real treat for all of us and really gave me a morale boost I needed. Can't wait to do it again. My state (MI) is doing a very slow and careful opening up of businesses in spite of the gun-toting protesters we've had at the capital bldg.

    Love to you all with cyber hugs coming your way!
