Every year, I still find myself being surprised that May, June, and July are so hectic! While I have found time each day to relax on our back deck, just as often I am looking at my calendar, wondering what else I’ve forgotten to do. It’s a busy time around here, for sure.
This week, I said goodbye to my brother as he went back to Arizona, wished my husband a good trip as he flew to California for the week, and have been getting my daughter’s room ready for her visit this weekend. I’ve also been writing a lot, and making lots of plans!
Next weekend, I’m off to Chicago for a girls’ weekend/research trip. My Chicago historical, Worthington House, is written, but now it’s time to add all the details that is needed to make the novel feel like it really is set in 1893 Chicago. I’m very excited to go on a tour of historic sites, visit museums, and even go to a play with my girlfriend and critique partner Julie.
Next month, I’ll be heading to Atlanta for the RWA National Convention, then getting ready for book signings and another conference in September when the last book of the Days of Redemption series, Eventide, is published.
All this running around made me really smile when my son sent me his latest photo of Rudy. I’ve been teasing Arthur, saying that Rudy would rather be with me than in college with him. We both know that’s not true, though. That dog loves his boy…and the picture below proves it!
Obviously, Rudy has found the perfect spot to relax and enjoy his summer!
Thank you for dropping by! With blessings to you. Shelley
