Long absence

Tuesday, May 29, 2007

Yeah, I know. I haven't posted for almost a month. My laptop went on the fritz...no power at all, and for whatever reason, I couldn't access the blog via my desk top. I would try to log on and the little icon went on and on and on...

I now have my laptop back and happiness is being able to move around the house, writing wherever I want to. During my hiatus, I had the good news that SHADOW LINES is a finalist in both the National Readers' Choice Awards and Golden Quill contests in the romantic suspense category.

We've been in major drought conditions here in South Florida and are on Phase III restrictions...that means watering the lawn, washing the car, etc. only one time a week. Considering we're in the sub-tropical to tropical zone, brown, crunchy lawns are not the norm. Maddie doesn't like the stuff much so she happily does her part against water violators by nailing their yards.

I was thrilled that Jordin and Apollo won in respectively AI and Dancing with the Stars. I was rooting/voting for them all the way.

Boy, I'm away a month and look at me chatter. :) Carol
