I'm stopping by for a minute to wish everyone out there 'HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!!' My own mother, greatly loved, greatly missed, has been gone for almost 13 years. However, I am still so very grateful for the love, kindness, and caring she shared with me - her oldest adopted daughter. She was truly the best!
No, I've not disappeared completely and, yes, I've been reading your posts and thoughts even though my commenting has been almost nil. Sorry about that. I seem to go through these periods of not feeling 'inspired' or whatever about keeping up with this blog. I don't seem to be able to let it go, however. Do you think that blogging is winding down? I heard a comment on a podcast recently that said that 'blogging' was not something that younger people wanted to deal with or keep up with. Quicker things that take less time are more in favor or so it was said. Ah well. I notice that several of us post less than we did, but I think for me, blogging 'seasons' come and go. What do you think? Are we 'winding down'?
What's going on with me? Well, today, I am helping out with and attending a 'mystery writers panel' at my local library. Three mystery authors will be talking to us and to each other about their craft of writing mysteries. I will definitely be back next week at some point to share a few pictures and tell about what they talked about. The three authors are Skye Alexander (who lives here in Kerrville), Laura Oles (from Austin), and K.P. Gresham (also from Austin). More to come on this!
I won't make this post too long today and that way I'll have more to share in upcoming posts. However, I'm grateful for over an inch of rain we got last night. We can definitely use it! Also, almost all our house renovation is completed and we were able to have family come a couple of weeks ago to take a tour and share our new area. That was a lot of fun. Our daughter and son-in-law came last weekend and we had a great time with them. We've got a couple of trips planned for summer and one planned in the fall. Life goes on and it's been pretty good lately. I'll talk more about reading and book groups later.
Hope everyone has a good weekend!! See you soon!
