The week after the week of vacation

So this week hasn't been as productive as my week of vacation was -- at least as it related to writing. I did some but got stuck with other chores. I kind of want to go back, but kiddo is STILL tuckered out LOL

Refreshed and Relaxed!

We had a fantastic time away on vacation. We drove north...north...north (stopped in Sudbury to visit the "Big Nickel" for a night before heading north...north...some more. When we got to our remote destination, I went a little crazy not having any internet, tv or even cell phone service, but it gave me the opportunity to do a lot of writing and spend much needed time with the family.

The weather was absolutely perfect, and the water was clear and gorgeous.This was the view from our deck, and this is what I looked at over my laptop everyone morning and every evening as I sat down to write. I gave myself this time for writing mostly because hubby and kiddo would head out then to do some fishing :)

We spent a lot of time soaking in the sun and splashing around. Since we got home last night, the puppy hasn't moved. She's collapsed at my feet with complete exhaustion because we kept her so busy!

But it's still nice to come home again even when you've had nothing but fun and relaxation, and what did I receive from the postman when I arrived? Check it out, aren't they gorgeous??

So it seems I have a few unexpected, limited print copies of FALLING HARD ....which means I want to give them away!

Leave me a comment about your summer's vacation here on the blog to be entered. A winner will be selected on Friday!

Please Stand By...

Well, I finished tweaking my novella and it has now been sent to my editor. Everyone cross your fingers that it's accepted!!!

In the meantime, I'm taking a little break. The family is going away on vacation, and there won't be any internet. Not for a whole week! Not only TV either!

It's like a dream come true. I will be bringing my laptop to do some writing, but I'm also looking forward to a lot of time for reading, for napping, for sipping margaritas...

See you soon!
