Holliday’s over…time to play!

July 28th, 2011 Comments off

My sister’s two week visit ran into my husband’s two week summer holiday so after a month away from my computer (and my book, Dancing the Maypole) I decided to refresh my memory by reading it from the start. I’m finally back to where I left off after a week and a half of editing. There were a number of things I needed to work out so that lowered my stress level. The book now has 102,075 words. I think there’s about ten thousand words to go unless the characters slap me and push me in a different direction. I’m really excited to get back into the story tomorrow and see what happens. In the mean time I wanted to share a few photos from my evening walk today. We actually had some sunshine today which was lovely. Just a brief reminder it’s summer before the next deluge. Read more…

Becky’s gone home…

It was lovely to spend two weeks with my sister. It’s been three years since we saw each other and many many more years since we spent so much time together just the two of us. We laughed ourselves sick and had some good cries. It was like one of those French movies that has no plot, but you leave the theatre feeling glad you went. It’ll probably be a long while before I see her again and that makes me sad, but at least she chose the right two weeks to come! We had some lovely weather for her visit. It’s supposed to rain all this coming week, but I love the rain…as long as it doesn’t start chucking it down while I’m taking photographs. Becky…this song is for you (you have to go listen to it)…’Aint No Sunshine’ by Bill Withers. Becky, there literally…ain’t no sunshine now you’re gone! Here are the rest of my favorites photographs of our adventures. Read more…

My sister Becky…

Some people don’t have sisters. Some people have sisters and wish they didn’t have sisters. Some lucky people, like me, have sisters who are amazing lovely people. My sister Becky is two years younger than me. I can’t remember a time she wasn’t a part of my life. It’s been three years since we were last together, but finally she was able to come for a visit. She’s been here about a week and we have another week of adventures before we have to take her back to the airport and watch her fly away. I had to share a few photos of our adventures. I’ll note which ones are hers… Read more…
