A storm is coming

While on holiday in North Myrtle Beach we had a lovely view of an approaching storm from our 10th floor room over looking the ocean.
It was just lovely.

Although it rained every now and then, it was always while we were resting inside having wine and snacks.

We stayed at the Seaside Inn and we found this fantastic place to walk to (along the beach) for dinner every night: Molly Darcy's. Fortunately they had an outdoor deck and we were able to enjoy the ocean view without the smoke as S. Carolina doesn't have the modern no smoking laws like Massachusetts!

Check out the sand hotdog - the artist colored it. It looked so real.

The day we left it was pushing over 90 degrees with unbearable humidity!

Catching up while keeping it real

Been getting behind blogging and I expect I'll continue on that trend between my obsession with the Warrior series by Erin Hunter - I'm currently reading Firestar's Quest, I've already read all six of the original series, and all six of The New Prophecies, along with: Secrets of the Clans, and Cats of the Clan (my 'Warrior Bibles'). I have waiting all six of the next Warrior set: Power of Three.

I've been making my rounds on my blogs, saw that Tia is working on new novels (well new for me). Kristophrenia is working on a query for Grim Light. I hope that goes well. I feel badly that I didn't share her same enthusiasm for her query, but I'm doing no favors if I don't voice my concerns. Read Wolverines latest at Legion of Online Super Heroes . Bevie has been doing an excellent job maintaining the blog. Checked what Firestar (so named after thee warrior in Warriors) has been up to. He's been helping out the family. Love the kitten of the month posted on that blog! Most impressed with the amount of traffic that Fantasy Debut gets!

I jogged 4.5 miles today - woo hoo. I only averaged about 4 mph hour but I'm happy I kept myself moving (although I think I might have been able to walk it faster than I jogged it)

Now I need to invest some time on a web software tool that I want to write!
