My Busy Week

Last week was busy enough, and am just getting caught up with myself now. Our flying trip to New England was just that...the funeral was nice in that it was like a family reunion; the wedding, I think, probably broke all records for shortest ceremony in history: thirty-seven seconds from beginning to end. And I mean beginning to end. No processional, no kissing the bride. Just

"Do you take this woman to be your lawfully wedded wife?"
"Say 'I do'."
"Oh, okay....I do."
"Do you take this man to be your lawfully wedded husband?"
"I do."
"I now pronounce you man and wife."

And that was it.

The food was good, though.

Then after we got home, my five-year-old grandson came for three nights while Mom and Dad went away to celebrate their tenth wedding anniversary. THAT was fun. We did all sorts of things...

One thing he really enjoyed and spent hours with are the pipe cleaners...he found the ones I had left over from my kids' activity at the Walk for Autism a few weeks ago, and decided the light in my computer room needed a 'bird cage'--at least that is what it started out to be...but then it turned into an ongoing adventure...I should have written it all down and made it into a story......

We also went 'exploring' in the woods, practiced our golf (he has a GREAT swing--maybe he'll be another Tiger Woods someday), went to the bookstore to find a couple of good chapter books, and the highlight of the day--riding on the golf cart from the ninth hole to the tenth hole when we found Papa at the golf course. Someday soon we plan to take him out for a round.

I've been on a reading kick for the last couple of weeks...a little bit of this, a little of that...but NO Harry Potter. I read the first three books, or maybe four, I think, but then never got to the rest. Maybe someday I'll catch up and find out what happened at the end.

Writing...let's see...mostly doing a little marketing...making connections locally. Had a new member come to our Children's Writers Club the other night, who just happened to be an elementary media specialist in one of our county schools. She loved It's Time...thought it would be perfect for helping kids to understand the kids with autism better...and is going to spread the word among the other county schools for me. I guess that is what you call 'networking,' right?
