October is turning out to be a busy month. Last week, my sister and brother-in- law came down from Pennsylvania. The guys stayed home while she and I did some touring. We visited Seagrove one day, not to look at pottery, but to go to Seagrove Orchids. With my penchant for killing all but the hardiest plants, I resisted the allure of these beautiful blooms, although Nancy bought two.
The rest of the week we visited some Yadkin Valley wineries. I say ‘some’ because there is no way we could get to them all. At one we bought cheese and crackers, and a glass of wine, and sat on the patio overlooking the vineyards with the mountains rising along the horizon and imagined we were in Tuscany.
The very best one for wines, if not the view, was our own Southern Medley Wine Cellar, right here at home.
The guys declined to accompany us, which I think was their loss.
Coming up is a local craft fair in which our writing group will participate, with members (including moi) selling their books.
And, the following weekend,I will get to attend Robert Macomber’s book signing in the morning before leaving that afternoon to go to the beach, where our youngest son is getting married. Don’t you just love a beach wedding?
The last weekend, we will have company, family we haven’t seen in too long.
Still writing, though: I have completed formatting “Angels Unaware” to upload to CreateSpace, and started on “The Lunch Club”, both previously published by a now-closed publisher. I entered my historical romance in a contest, and submitted my contemporary romance to another publishing house. Keeping my toes and fingers crossed!
As I said, I’m staying busy, but not too busy to enjoy this beautiful weather. Hope everyone else is doing the same!
