Just said goodbye to my girls after a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend. I'm sad and excited all rolled into one. I treasure the time we spend together now that they each have their own busy lives, but this leaving was made easier because tomorrow is day one of a month long road trip to the American Southwest where I'll get to reconnect with my mom and sibs, and where I'd love to set a novel (after the one I'm working on now).
This has to be a short and sweet post as I'm on the run to get a million errands done. My next chore (hee hee) will be to pick out a couple of books from my bedside pile to bring along. I had planned to bring Inkdeath, the third in Cornelia Funke's Inkworld series but I've decided against it as I'm having a hard time getting into it even though I grew to care about Meggie, her parents and the fire-eater Dustfinger in the first two books. No worries though...there's the pile to choose from is BIG!
