Driving away in a red Cadillac

Tomorrow, I am driving to a chalet in Mt. Baker with my friend, Cari.  We are joining a bunch of women on a scrapbooking retreat.  Scoff if you must, but my photographs are in chronological order from 1993 until 2005.

Aside from the scrapbooking, I intend to devote some time to writing my neglected novel.  I’m nearly half-way through.  I had been devoting all my Saturdays to writing, but then soccer and football games started and I haven’t had a Saturday to myself ever since.  So, during my forty-eight hours on the mountain, I hope to write.

I will put my photographs in scrapbooks during my writing breaks.

Also?  I will breathe in crisp mountain air and walk on mountain trails.

So, you can see I’ve got my work cut out for me.  And that’s why I have no more time to devote to this blog entry.  I must sleep so I can wake up, load the dishwasher, pack some clothes, find the notes for my novel, shove my laptop into its bag, lug the scrapbooking supplies and photographs to the car-trunk, throw some clothes into the dryer, and remember to take my pillow with me so I can sleep while I”m gone.   Also?  I have to go pick up Cari.

I feel utterly guilty leaving my family for forty-eight hours.  But I’m going anyway.

Have a great weekend!  (And thanks for all the nice comments on my previous entry.  Someday I’ll get around to answering your comments which appear in my email box.)

  1. So jealous of your weekend. I’m a scrapper and a writer too, although I’ve never attempted the great American novel. Have a wonderful and recharging weekend! I went on a retreat in July and it was just what the doctor ordered for me!
