CT Childrens' Book Fair

On Sunday I headed out to UCONN to attend the book fair for the first time. Members of my crit group led Clifford the Big Red Dog around so he could have some photo ops. I was amazed by the number of people, especially enthusiastic reading children, that were there! And so many books to choose from....And so many author presentations to attend... I guess this will become an annual event on my calendar. It was very well done.

Alfred- Awesome Destruction

The storm made a huge mess, we are still cleaning up. I must admit, though, that on those days when the sun warmed up a comfy chair in the living room, it was nice to write and focus with no distractions at all. There was no phone, no TV, no where to be, nothing that demanded my immediate attention (except maybe the dog!) The quiet (except for the neighbor's generator) was blissful. It quieted the mind.

Alfred-Awesome Beauty

While the gingko leaves were lovely all covered with snow....there's a reason we usually don't see this combination.

Hello Halloween

Well, Halloween got cancelled for the first time in my lifetime! Snow, fallen trees and power outages put a damper on things. Our power was out for 10 days and I am only now starting to catch up with work on the computer.  So sorry, little pumpkin, no trick-or-treaters this year.

I Can't Wait!!
