Thursday, June 9, 2011

Another busy day here at the home front. The painter is here, finishing up the house. The lawn guy is here, mowing and weedeating. We got up at 5:30am today - no reason, but we were both awake and decided to. Force of habit, you know?

I put this picture of Daytona Beach here, because I've been thinking of where to go for a vacation. Yes, we're taking a mini-vacation and going to Beau Rivage Casino is Biloxi next month. The nice folks at MGM sent us a free trip (using those Players Club cards in Vegas really does pay off!)

And, while I am looking forward to that trip, I also have been leaning toward an all-inclusive somewhere like Jamaica. Not sure why, since I can't lay out in the sun without wearing SPF 50 at least, but is sounds relaxing. I've also been looking into other things - a cruise, a trip to the Maine Coast, a trip to New Brunswick, Canada (I love that area), Nashville, Memphis, or the California coast. I've also been looking at going back to Vancouver Island, which is where we went in 2004 and had the most wonderful time.

Planning - and pricing - is an eye-opener, let me tell you. At first, we were thinking of England and Scotland, or Ireland, or Italy. But pricing those sort of week long jaunts had me rethinking fast. We're retired now, so I have to be mindful of spending. (By retired, I mean no day job. I'm still writing, of course).

I did write some yesterday. Just piddling around with various books ideas. I'm see-sawing between starting work on the Harlequin Romantic Suspense that I proposed or starting something for a different market, something completey different. I don't know what I'll do. I actually have a folder on my computer called Various Beginnings. In that folder are odd assorted books I've tried to write and never finished over the years. It's been fun reading some of that early stuff (and painful, LOL!).

Ah well. I'm gonna get started again today. After I do the Craigslist thing.
