Back to Normal

Dare I say it?  Am I tempting fate?  :) Things seem to have settled down around here–okay, it’s early–and I’m hoping it’s a pattern.

Wendy went home to California yesterday–she’s in the middle of a new script–and although I miss her very much, I know we both need to get back to our regular lives and our work.  My little girl has grown into such a fine, gracious, funny, smart and hardworking woman–I am so proud of her.  Although the reasons for her visit were basically very sad–Sadie and a dear friend passed on the same day–we managed to share a lot of joy, too.  We visited my stepmother, Edith, in Grand Coulee, along with a gang of family members, took my mom to Red Lobster for lunch and some catching up, even made a couple of forays to the casino.  We visited Wendy’s favorite fast-food place, Scholtzky’s Deli, checked out Hobby Lobby and watched “Celebrity Ghost Stories” on TV, surrounded by three little furry four-leggers.  Wendy is an app-wizard, and showed me all sorts of new ones for my iPad.  :)

Today is a fine day, sunny and warm–our belated summer continues.  :)

And now back to Parable, Montana.

Thanks for being you.

    HI Linda, it is so great to read that you and Wendy had some good times. All the activities you mentioned can be healing and invigorating. It obviously did you a world of good, to refresh, reconnect, and recharge. Happy writing …. We are patiently waiting! Hilda

    I'm sorry to hear of the loss of two good friends on the same day. It's lovely that your daughter was able to spend time with you…even under these sad circumstances.Losing our furry companions can be one of the hardest things to bear, and the hole they leave behind, not easily filled. I do hope you find solace in your writing and a modicum of healing in the days to come…
