Glorious day!

The sun is shining and the thermometer is nearing temps we haven’t seen since last October! Yippee! I do believe old Mr. Winter is finally on his way out. The mounds of snow are yielding to the sunlight and warmth and there’s even a hint of green to the otherwise brown and dormant grass.

Let’s see…since my last post…April fool’s day was fun around our house, with everyone getting in on the tomfoolery. My seven-year-old granddaughter got me first thing in the morning with a phone call about needing a ride to school. She was beside herself with laughter when she shouted April Fools! Her little sister got in on the act, repeating the earlier call almost word for word, but then, after a thoughtful pause, asked, “Grandma, can you give us a ride to school? And this isn’t an April fool’s joke.” 

Dear Papa wasn’t done with his humor on April 1st. Last night he informed the man who owns the storage unit I store my Mustang in for the winter is out of town for several more weeks. I’d call the man on Monday and left a message saying I’d like to get the car out this week, so I was a bit disappointed to hear that, and believed it since the man hadn’t called me back. Papa then started laughing and said April fools. I informed him that he was 7 days late. Anyway…In less than an hour I’ll be on my way to get my Mustang out of storage. Another yippee!

One final yippee….I booked my trip to San Antonio, Texas. The end of July—yes, I know, July in Texas—I’ll be attending the RWA (Romance Writers of America) conference. I’m really looking forward to it, heat and all. 

Sorry to be so short, but I was lost in 1925 up until a few minutes ago—this fourth story (Josie’s) is coming together fast! I just noticed the time and remembered I wanted to get a new blog post up today since it had been a while. 

Enjoy all the little things around you (and the big ones), miracles are happening.
