I'm just home from a mission trip to Guatemala. More details to follow, but for now let's just say that I am really missing...

The kids at the school. Big time.

Kari. So much. Betsy, too.

The mission friends who should now, like me,  be in their comfy homes, relaxing after the strenuous trip.

I miss the country, people, food, music...and even the spiders!

I miss Harry.

I miss it all.

Clocking In

Just so true!

Hope you have a great day!

Writing Life

People ask about the writing life, and by the gleam in their eyes I always think they must imagine it's a glamorous, exciting life.


On the to-do list most days? Morning revisions. Midday writing. Afternoon break to do housework, yardwork, paperwork. So many "works" that need attention! Then late day writing. A break. Then, most evenings, I read or scribble outlines for what's on the following day's writing plan.

Yeah, totally glam, no? I'm not complaining one bit. I love what I do and realize I live a very good life but it is so not wild and exciting! But me...I'll take ordinary over exciting any day!

...Or hiking.

Maybe both.

World of Color

When I was at the RWA conference I managed to visit Disneyland a few times. I'd never been, and loved it. One of my favorite parts was the World of Color. It was just so pretty, and a perfect way to welcome the night.

All A Bored? Or Boared?

Months after I took this picture, I'm still smiling.
