Just popping in to say Now isn't that a nice way to start a post?
I went to Charlottesville, VA to visit my FIL the weekend before this past weekend, so I got off my schedule that I was trying to adopt for posting. It was a really nice trip. He is 94 and still able to beat me at ping pong!
This past Saturday I went on a day trip outing with my friend Mary to view the fall colors along the Wisconsin side of the Mississippi. It was gorgeous! We ate lunch at a restaurant known for its fabulous food in the small town of Pepin. Of course we did some shopping in the boutiques as well.
Yesterday I took Sonny Boy out to lunch and then we stopped by the Minneapolis Institute of Arts to see the Japanese exhibit (it was a free admission day). Then I went to a birthday dinner - a guy friend of ours always invites only women and cooks dinner for us. He's been doing it since 1985 and I've only missed one year! WOW. He has a girlfriend (basically common law wife!) and she is there too. We're all really good friends. He just enjoys the company of women more than men. He thinks men are boring conversationalists. Plus we're prettier!
Looks like you've all been keeping busy too!Lynne
-Must order The Crown!! I love how you keep yourself busy with writer's things: conferences, interviews. You're a great role model. Sarah is right!Sarah
- Sorry about your little accident. I hope your car didn't get totaled. I didn't know (or maybe I forgot?) that you are a writer as well. That's great - no time like the present to start writing again.
- Wow - that must have been a huge trigger that set you off on that stress attack. I'm going to worry about you now! Deep breath! Good thing your bf is low-key and can calm you down. Do the kitties help make you feel better? I know you were worried about them, but I mean, when you got home, did they make you feel better? Book rejections are very much to be expected, so that's okay. I've still got 10 out there that I haven't heard from and I keep submitting more each week. Where is the "fingers crossed" emoticon?
- I think it is great that you gave the dance a try when you naturally don't like that sort of event. It is always good to try to expand your horizons.
Gotta go send out some more queries!BYE!
