I am struggling getting back to my writing.  I know what I want my sequel to say.  I just can't seem to put it on paper.  So, instead of sitting in front of a blank page, I decided to take a break!!  I am a lucky lady.  I have spent the last 7 days in beautiful, warm and sunny Florida.  My husband and I have been to the beach a few times and got sunburns, cleaned up the yard, hauled stuff (well, he hauled, I watched) to the dumpster, cleaned out closets (I cleaned, he watched), got the golf cart fixed, ran the water until the smell went away and ate out every nite.  Hubby has returned home and the next 10 days, I will relax and get as much as I can done on my sequel.  I have learned that I tire easily and that I cannot tolerate certain foods and definately cannot drink alcohol.  I am sad that my Mom is not able to spend time in her Florida home this year.  I pray she gets stronger.  Although, in my head, I know she probably never will get to Florida again.  I have chatted with her friends here.  They all miss her.  They are all sad that she isn't here with them.   I am trying to shake the guilt I feel, me here in her home in Florida with her struggling in the cold New England weather.  Florida is more crowded this year.  Either the economy is improving or people are just fed up with not financially being able to do what they want to do without the worry if their retirement income will run out on them.  I think it's the latter.  But there are more cars on the road, wait time in restaurants, more people in stores.  I'm glad they are here enjoying the Florida weather and lifestyle.  I still marvel at how clean the streets are, how well groomed public areas are, how beautiful the palm trees are, and the beautiful sunsets with bright pinks and corals spreading over the darkening sky.  Just gorgeous!  

As I write this, I wonder who reads my blog.  If you are a follower, join my site or leave me a comment.  If you have read my debut novel, The Shelter at Papa's Farm,  tell me who your favorite character is.  I look forward to hearing from you!!
