Just wanted to get my blog updated with a brief post. I have been busy getting ready for a trip to Texas to see my son and his family. I'm looking forward to seeing them and attending the twins' 1st birthday party but I do dread traveling in this heat, especially to Houston where it is a whole lot hotter than here!
Besides getting ready for the trip, I've spent my spare time writing as well as doing some research and reading when I felt like it. A couple of days I felt like death-warmed-over. I'm blaming that on the heat.
When I get back, I'm going to set up some goals for August. Wish me luck! I took the photos on one of my trips to Houston.

Here, everybody knows what you mean when you say slaw dog. Back in the day, our drive-in movie theater was famous for its slaw dogs. They were delicious and every time we went, we always got slaw dogs. So, every summer, I usually treat myself to a slaw dog. Except now, the hot dog is actually a turkey dog with only 40 calories and fat free. They are easy and fast to make. No having to heat up the kitchen.
Speaking of heat, we are in the midst of deep summer. It's a 110 in the shade. From what they said on the news, most of the country is baking. Take care if you are outside doing anything. Heat kills.
I'm staying in for the most part. July has been a good month so far. My shoulder pain has improved a great deal and I'm taking care not to stress it by lifting. Last Saturday night, my pal, Lee Ann, came over and we just relaxed, ate pizza and watched movie trailers on Flickster, plus an episode of Supernatural. And, tonight the finals for America's Got Talent begins. Much to my disappointment, I don't really have a favorite this year.
I'm also reading and I really want to do some reviews when I get time. I've read about 15 books in the last 2 months. Currently, I am finishing up Joanna Bourne's The Forbidden Rose and I have started The Jefferson Key by Steve Berry. Both are very good books. Very different. One is a romance and the other a fast-paced National Treasure type story. I read across the board in fiction, not just one genre.
I am currently working on the final draft of Lady Silver. I love so much about it, the time period and the setting. It keeps me working at the craft while I am making some decisions as to where I want to go with writing and that is another blog post in itself.
Time to go chill out!
