Back to the Real World

Ah, yes, vacation is over so it’s back to the daily rat race. Actually, around my house, it’s the laundry race. I can’t believe the amount of laundry that accumulates. How did we have ALL that in two suitcases?

Our trip from one end of the state to the other (and Minnesota isn’t a small state) was wonderful. First we drove to the South Dakota border to see my brother’s kids and their families from Tennessee and Oklahoma. After that we went to the Canadian border to our property. My husband’s brother drove up from Iowa, and we all had a wonderful time. The fish were biting on Lake of the Woods, and I can once again be called the ‘walleye slayer’.

I did get a chance to write a small amount on my latest WIP. I’m happy to say my hero and heroine are no longer snowbound in a cave in Colorado. They now are traveling Goodale’s Cutoff across Idaho.

My free read went up at The Wild Rose Press this weekend. Blue Spring’s Queen is the fourth and final McBride story. It’s about Abigail, the woman who relentlessly chased each and every McBride brother. I figured she needed her own story.

OH…AND The Wild Rose Press now has the capability of selling print copies of all novel length stories! YEA!

Isn't laundry the worst? LOL Your vacation sounds like it was a blast.

Sounds like you had fun! Congrats on the free read and making progress on the story. I am doing the final edits on my latest WIP and hope to jump into the Sisters story soon. Yeah!

Yes, Nancy, laundry is never ending! And the vacation was great!

Hey Paty! How was the wedding? Congrats on the edits, and I look forward to hearing about Maggie and Ty!

The wedding was nice, but though I had high hopes it was a historical type place- it wasn't. It just happened to be the name of the people whose ranch they held the wedding. ~sigh~ But I learned what the northern part of Montana looks like- Where I grew in NE Oregon! LOL
