Deadlines, Alaska, and one very messy office….
I need a backhoe!
Today was a catch-up day for me, now that the manuscript for my April book has been turned in, and the copy edits on Winter Reunion (November) are taken care of. The next time I see Reunion, it will be out in the stores, and I can’t wait. Doesn’t Steeple Hill have gorgeous covers?! Their art department is just amazing, and I wonder what they’ll come up with for all of the November books! I think my June book, End Game, has an intriguing cover, with a spooky road leading off into the mountains.
I am thankful to have those deadlines met..but now, you should see my office! 🙂 Er….maybe not. I worked on it most of the day and haven’t made much of a dent in all the papers and books and whatnot that seem to grow exponentially whenever my back is turned. Do you have a “junk drawer” in your desk, or in your kitchen? Multiply that by a hundred, and you’ll be able to visualize my office! It will be such a good feeling when it’s all back in order. How about you…are you totally organized and neat-as-a-pin, or do you ever get just a tad behind like this?! I’m hoping that someone, somewhere, will tell me that I’m not alone! 🙂
I had a bit of an excuse this time, though–we were traveling a bit, recently. My husband has wanted to go to Alaska for years, and started planning this trip way last fall. I never knew there were so many mountain ranges up there, each more beautiful than the last. I just had to share a couple photos. What I wanted most was to photograph moose for this blog, and I only caught a glimpse of one disappearing into the trees! BUT…we did see lots of whales. Well….their tails, anyway. One stayed in position and slapped his upraised flukes against the water 20-25 times. I wish I’d had a movie camera! The picture below isn’t very impressive, but it was a full grown whale. And, we got to see sea lions and an eagle enjoying a buoy.
What are your favorite destinations? Where would you like to go next?
Best wishes to you for a wonderful summer!
