Friday Update

I've been out of touch for awhile and even missed my happy debut book birthday feature on Tuesday.  A thousand apologies, but I assure you, I did have a good excuse: VACATION.
Although I'd planned on being back in time to do my book birthday post, we had to unexpectedly change our travel dates at the last minute.  It turns out that when you leave the country, your husband's passport cannot have expired two months ago.  Figuring that out on a Friday night when you're supposed to travel on Sunday sort of put a wrinkle in our plans.  But never fear -- passport expediting service to the rescue.  Two flight changes, a two-night stay at the Biltmore and more money than I care to think about, we had a new passport in hand by Wednesday morning and made a 10:10 am Wednesday morning flight.  (A particularly huge thank you to FedEx, who really does deliver it's 8am packages prior to 8 am -- I don't know how they do that.)

I'm sure there's a story thread in there somewhere.  I picked up some more threads on the trip too.  One of our fellow tourists managed to get stuck on a zip-line twice (requiring rescue from a guide) and then was the only person who flipped off her inner tube in the "rapids." I'm thinking that's a great opportunity for a girl to meet her hunky rescuer??

Of course, I didn't do too much thinking about writing, since I read basically the whole time I was gone. I started with Hope Collier's The Willows: Haven, then read Always a Witch, Hourglass and Moonglass.  I'm glad to say I was pleasantly entertained by them all.  Now I just need to get my rear in gear and post reviews!

And then there were the views.  Who could possibly think too hard about anything when you're looking at this?  *Sigh*  When can I go back?  (This is the Almond Beach Resort in Hopkins, Belize.)
Happy weekend, everyone!

What a fabulous vacation. I can picture relaxing on the beach under the palm trees, rootbeer float in hand.

And what a lot of story ideas to keep you writing. Thanks for giving us a glimpse of your exciting week.

Lovely photos! Glad you were able to get your passport situation worked out. Fed Ex rocks. lol. Can't wait to read your reviews on the books you were able to finish. Can't wait to read Hourglass in particular :) Hope you are having a fabulous Friday!
