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.)
