Why I’ve been absent…

The end of September and beginning of October turn into an event marathon at my day job, as events coordinator for the OSU College of Pharmacy. That means nights worked, constant errands and little time outside of work to unwind.

In effort to keep myself sane, I prioritized and decided to put the blogging on hold. This allowed me to continue critting with my critique partners and work on my writing.

Aside from working, writing and managing my household, we painted our house in a weekend and are still finishing up little bits here and there of cleaning and touch ups. The house looks great and I praise God for family and friends who helped us.


This Friday marks the first official meeting for my book club, and we have been reading an amazing novel, The Hunger Games, by Suzanne Collins. I will post about that book later. If you are interested in forming a book club, I recommend reading Sarah Sundin’s page about book clubs at http://www.sarahsundin.com.

Next Monday I will have a review of the Oregon Christian Writer’s Fall One-Day Conference with some of the highlights and best tips and advice from the day.

Here’s to getting back into the routine of twice weekly posts about history, writing and riding. I’ve missed you all and look forward to new adventures in blogland!
