Fun few weeks meeting readers. I had a booth at the Tempe Book Festival and met some great authors and readers. It’s always nice when someone comes up to buy your sequel after reading the first. This past week I did a book signing and presentation at an “elder care facility”. The women in the independent living section were the greatest audience ever and had so many of their own stories to tell about the historical time-frames in The House on 4th Street. It was so much fun and I hope to do that again soon. In two weeks, I’ll be at the Mesa Book Festival. Great time to buy books for the holidays.
Busy fall as always. I spent weeks researching and negotiating on a new car. If you’re like me, it’s worse than having teeth pulled. But it had been three years on my lease so it had to be done. Finally, last Monday I got to the right pricing and made a huge change to a small SUV. Still learning all the computer technology. Ugh
Celebrated my son’s 40th birthday over several weeks. Our trip to Disneyland was the most fun ever! Thanks for that request, Michael. Now next week my birthday is on Tues., my daughter’s on Wed. and Thanksgiving on Thurs. Then we hit Black Friday, shopping and Christmas.
It’s like this every year. I complain and moan all summer that I can’t be outside. Then fall hits and it’s so busy who has time to sit outdoors and read? Ha Ah, the joys of living in Arizona.
We’re headed to the White Mountains for a few days and will enjoy (hopefully) the cold weather and hiking and having a fire in the fireplace, and baking a turkey in a kitchen we’ve never seen. Yes, I have a list of items to take north with us.
Give thanks for all we have and think of the things we can do for others to make their lives better.
