Going to Camp

I’m lCamp-2017-Participant-Profile-Photoooking forward to participating in Camp NaNoWriMo for the first time this year. They’ve added hours or pages as goal markers as well as the usual word count.

I’ve chosen 75 hours in the month of April to work on editing the second book inĀ  The Unwitting Journeys of the Witty Miss Livingstone series. You can find the first book HERE. Can’t wait to retreat to the NaNo woods and refine the 2nd book for release in October 2017!

Vehicle of Choice

From a sleigh to an ark – my vehicle of fancy has changed along with the weather. It’s apparent the mountain snow has turned to rain and the big melt is on! Since I don’t have an ark, I opted for waterproof shoes. What a winter!20170315_074105

A Day in the Life…

I got inspired to do this by a recent post on The Shameful Sheep. (Be warned it is a site with a different rating than this one šŸ™‚ ) I decided to document my next day that I was not at work. So here’s my Saturday in photo essay form. I put the descriptions in captions so I wouldn’t get too long winded, although I babbled on in some anyway. Enjoy this peek into what I’m up to besides surviving all the snow along the riverside this year. It seems I’m mostly writing. And yes, I do that everyday!

It Turned Out Beautifully in the End

We had a sudden downpour of snow the other day that caught many in the middle of what became a very treacherous commute. But it melted just as quickly the next day and came out beautifully in the end…I’ll start with a spoiler end photo and then show the rest in order.


Here are the videoĀ links to the BACK-UP ON THE HILL IN THE SNOWSTORM and the SNOW FALLING PEACEFULLY ON THE RIVERSIDE AT HOME. (Choose HD for best view)
