Tuesday, and the Weather is Changing

Slowly, but surely. Last night, as I swam, cool air kind of made me chilly as it hit my shoulders. The first sure sign of fall. Actually, the leaves on a couple of our trees in the front yard are changing, but I fear that's bad news as no other leaves anywhere have begun to turn yet. :-(

Today, I'm meeting writer friends for lunch. Writers work so much alone that meeting friends and talking about the whys and hows we work is always a treat. Talking to someone who shares your passion and that strange hunger to put words together... Well, you know how they say that people who think like you always feel like your best friends!

Monday at the Library

First, it's much quieter than usual. I guess the schoolkids are all occupied again. I always dreaded this time of year when our offspring were younger--hated that I couldn't spend all day hanging out with them. (I cannot swear they felt the same.)

Second, one of the nicest people I know has a book out this month. Leanne Harris, who has been writing for Silhouette Romantic Suspense, has a Love Inspired Suspense out this month. I already grabbed mine at WalMart this morning. Check out the book on Leanne's website and see if you don't need to read all about it! ;-)

Saturday Catching Up

I'm at yet another coffee shop. When, oh when will our Internet access be usable? And I don't really love to hear myself whining, but what ever happened to the concept of customer service?

Enough of that.

Summer's coming to an end. I can tell because I have an urge to bake. And a soup sounds good until I realize it's still in the 80s, but some of the leaves are starting to turn, and the schoolbus arrives on our street every morning. I'm going to miss my girl, but she's promised I can come down to take her to lunch at regular intervals. (Ain't she thoughtful?)

I'd love to hang out and gab, but I managed to pack for the coffee shop without a power cord so time is limited today. Wishing everyone a happy weekend!

Gotta Type Fast!

Who knows how long this will last? We're still suffering Internet connection issues, but I've gotten this far....

Yay, the Olympics have started! I actually enjoy the Winter Olympics more--because of snow and cold weather. But I love the swimming and diving. Not wild about the other events until they start, and then I get all wrapped up in the competition. Yay--the games have begun!

Speaking of competition, was anyone else mesmerized by So You Think You Can Dance? I thought I was fine with whoever won, I liked all the dancers so much, but when they called Josh's name, I was startled because I expected to hear Twitch. What a great show. I need to thank the friend who suggested I watch it. But how long till the next season? And can it possibly measure up? :-)

Gotta hit post quickly. For one thing, how long will I stay connected? And we have friends coming to stay the night after the hot water pipe burst at their house. Do you ever notice the abode looks okay enough until you have folks coming to stay?

Also, I'm in the middle of a revision, but Harlequin Historical is doing a new ebook series called Undone. The stories are only 10-15k words, and I've always wanted to try a historical. I'm using my "spare" time to work up a shot at that. So--better get back to all kinds of work!
