Morning Meanderings… The Last Friday I Will Be Home For Three Weeks



Good morning!  It is Friday and I am sooo excited about that.  Today I have a no commitment day and I plan to take full advantage of it.  These days, as you seen by the title of my post are going to be few over the next weeks so I am trying to prepare for them.

I leave next Wednesday afternoon for ST Paul to stay with College Son and then we leave on the 30th for Florida for our annual trip.  I am so looking forward to this as I do every year.  Yes yes, Universal Studios here we come!!!  Then we come back home on Monday November 3rd…

and then I leave back to Florida to work with the bees on the 4th through the 20th.


I will be helping to split hives which makes more hives, and well, you can bet there will be a whole post on this once we get going.

Yes it is definitely  a long time away from home and I am honestly not thrilled about that.  However, we have to have all splits done by November 15th and together we believe we can get ‘er done. 🙂  On the bright side, once I get through this crazy bump in activity, December should be extremely low-key and I will not be doing anything but focusing on writing and staying out of the cold 🙂



I also need to announce the winner of the bookmarks!  Thank you to all who commented on the post and looked at the cool website for In My Book.  What a fun gift idea!  I will be mailing out a card to two different lucky winners!  Using the winners are….


Kathy at Bermuda Onion!

Krystal at Books Are My Thing!


Woo hoo!!!  I will email the winners for their addresses, however if they see this before I do so, they are welcome to email me the information at


That’s it! I have a friend coming over this morning to try on dresses for our Monster Dash in the cities tomorrow morning.  I have been looking forward to this run for years!!!  This is the first time I have been able to make this one work and it is supposed to be the biggest run in Minnesota!  NICE!

She is going to be a princess and I am either doing the same or going with 50’s girl – which is a costume I already have on hand and it is fairly easy to run in.

So that’s it.  Planning for a meeting on Monday, prepping all things I need to do before I leave next Wednesday and breaking up the anxiety with books and audio 🙂
