I can’t believe summer is over. It was with mixed feelings I sent the girls out the door to school on Tuesday–one to her first day of middle school, one to her first day of high school…sniff, sniff. Maybe now I’ll get the house cleaned, maybe I’ll get some writing done, I think. But I know that I’ll miss our impromptu trips to the beach and late nights seeing how many stars are out even more.
I never did post an update on the curb appeal project (but I will soon!). The walkway did get finished. Unfortunately, not much else did. Thank goodness, Mother Nature pitched in with all the day lilies, ferns and hostas, and the farmette ended up looking pretty good.
Summer was a whirl–a trip to Maine (hi Brenda!), our first foray into the world of marching band, the garden. But I wanted to share a few pics of writing and reading friends I spent time with along the way.
First off, the Artsplace in Fremont, Michigan. JQ Rose, Joselyn Vaughn, WS Gager and I met to talk about what inspires us during the dog days of summer.
Next there was the Reading Rocks Festival in Rockford Michigan. I met one of my future fans there…isn’t he a doll?
I also met Kitty who is Irish. Isn’t that a fun coincidence? Of course, she bought a copy of the first book in the Kitty Irish trilogy, Trajectories.
How was your summer? Make any new friends? Bump into any old ones?
