I’m back in my room, day three of workshops is complete! We ended the day with several of us enjoying the patio and al fresco dining at Nick’s in Xenia --- GREAT food!
((How do you pass up an offer of waffle cut sweet-potato fries drizzled with brown sugar?!?))
What a fun group of ladies! In fact – several of us are meeting up and descending like locusts at Fabric Shack in Waynesville---10am sharp ---- to continue this adventure!
I understand that the main street is loaded with antique malls – I’ll have to shop fast because I’ve got to get myself to Ashtabula by late afternoon!
Can I do it? I’m willing to try!
There is something really decadent about being in jammies at 7:30pm, stretching myself out in the center of a big king-sized bed ---TNT & Law & Order on the tube while editing down tomorrow’s slide show. Gosh I feel lazy! But if I get this written, I can hop over to my machine and get some piecing done ---and I can sleep in a bit in the morning!
Just a side note --- did you watch the series DALLAS back in the 80s? Do you remember that whole buzz of “Who Killed JR?!?” And then he wasn’t dead?
Did you see that there is a new Dallas series starting on TNT tonight? A lot of the same actors are in it – like the story has just continued on with a 12 year hiatus! I never really followed the series, but might keep it on just to see if I can get pulled into it.
While digging through things online, I also came across this freebie book that really looks fun:
California Schemin’, by Kate George is free tonight in the Amazon Kindle store.
Kate George is the winner of the 2009 Daphne De Maurier Award for Excellence in Mystery and Suspense, Mainstream Division.
California Schemin’ is the second in the fun, fast paced Bree MacGowan Mysteries. Think Miss Marple meets Miss Congeniality!
Being a self-sufficient, problem solving Vermont girl, Bree’s used to taking care of her own problems. Just because some Ex-Army Ranger has gotten her mixed up in murder doesn’t mean she’s obligated to behave herself. Bree figures it’s her job to get as far away from Mr. Hambecker as possible, turn in the murderer and reclaim her boyfriend and her life. But the murderer isn’t going to be easy to catch, her life is in a shambles and the boyfriend isn’t sure he want’s to be reclaimed. It’s mystery with a side of laughter.
“California Schemin' by Kate George is a page turner - I couldn't put it down! Kate does a great job of getting the action rolling on the first page and you get sucked into the adventures that befall her lead character, Bree MacGowan.” - JCrew
“California Schemin' is the hilarious sequel to Moonlighting in Vermont by Kate George and, once again, features the headstrong but lovable Bella Bree MacGowan. Schemin's a good old fashioned cozy mystery that infuses the author's witty sense of humor, plenty of suspense, some great writing, and an engaging and action-packed plot.
Double check before clicking that it is still free for you, it just was for me!
Have a great evening, everyone!
