A little dream #MFRWauthor #seizethemoment

In last night’s dream, I am traveling somewhere and it’s a beautiful day, but I need to get my morning Sudoku worked, and I don’t have a pencil. Whoever I’m traveling with (vague, in this dream) goes with me searching all over the city for the perfect pencil – not just any pencil will do. We finally find it, but we’ve missed seeing the beautiful sites we traveled to see.

The dream morphs (as dreams do) and now I’m on Dancing With The Stars, and it’s performance time, and I’ve completely missed the final rehearsal and don’t know my dance.

I don’t want to preach 🙂

So I’ll just say that this morning, before writing this post, I took my Sudoku and my perfectly ordinary pencil outside with my morning coffee and watched the sunrise light up the clouds over the mountains. I’m refreshed and ready for my day – I hope the same for you.

My Outdoor Office #MFRWauthor

1_Trichocereus Angelesii…so my last several blog posts may have sounded like all we ever do is vacation, go dancing, and work out – but we’re writers, and we work very hard at that, too.


5_Cane Cholla Opuntia SpinosiorToday I thought I’d give you a taste of our summer outdoor office.

The RV resort we’re staying in has a lovely cactus garden, with a pergola, tables, benches, and even electrical outlets.

4_the culprit - prickly pearIt’s a beautiful space to write while the mornings are still cool enough.

I took these cactus photos during the blooming season in April, but even now, in mid June, the mimosa is full of blossoms, and the air is sweet with it. Morning temps in the 80s, gentle breeze – can’t ask for much more.






Day One #MFRWAuthor #Stayfit

Anyone who works at staying fit knows the syndrome – life is never static, and keeping healthy turns out to involve an endless series of starting over.

Today, it’s Day One after a fun three days at The Golden Nugget and The Fremont Street Experience in Las Vegas (well, no end of exercise, between all the dancing and the walking), and also Day One of changing up our timing.

Palo-Duro-Adriana-300x200Summer has arrived. Mimosa sweetness fills the air and the heat is intense. Ten AM bike rides are no longer an option – we’ve got to get up early and ride before breakfast to have a comfortable cruising temperature. It’s only 9:30 as I write this and already 87 degrees – we took our ride (ten minutes, to ease back into the routine) at 7:30, when it was only in the high seventies. This afternoon, instead of walking, we’ll hit the pool around 3 PM. (pic above is Palo Duro Canyon, TX, November, 2012).

Today is the first day of the rest of our lives…
