Cross Country Charm

I'm back!  You probably didn't know I was gone, since I didn't announce it, but I recently returned from a delightful cross-country trip where we celebrated a wonderful birthday with my m-i-l, saw other family members including the grandkids, then drove back on a route that allowed me to see Mt. Rushmore for the first time as well as Yellowstone National Park and a bunch of other national parks and places of amazing interest. 

I was with my husband and younger son, and they took care of the driving, which allowed me to stay in the backseat and actually accomplish some editing. You won't be surprised to learn that I got some inspirations and ideas for other books as well as the ones I'm under deadline for. 

I also participated, while traveling, in a blog tour for my first Barkery & Biscuits Mystery BITE THE BISCUIT, which is now available.  The second Barkery & Biscuits Mystery's manuscript is due next week and I need to return to it, so I need to keep this brief.  Suffice it to say that the trip was fun, the company wonderful, and the time it took worth it--despite all that I need to accomplish now in an even shorter time than otherwise! 

So how about you--any travel plans coming up or accomplished?

This blog sounds and looks like it will be terrific and I will be so glad to follow you ladies. I have seen so many of Joanna Campbell Slan's crafts and even have one of them. She is amazing with her recycling.

I will be looking forward to reading your posts.

Delighted to have you follow us, Cynthia, although Joanna is not currently blogging here despite her name still being included. Sorry for the confusion!

I love road trips. Yours sounded wonderful. I find it hard to read in a car, but I can crochet.

Fortunately I managed to get a lot done on the trip, Betty--and I had printed things out in a fairly small size since that's how I edit at that stage of my writing.
