This just made my Monday morning: the trailer for the new Bond film, Quantum of Solace. It looks absolutely amazing. Unfortunately, it's already been yanked from YouTube, so I won't be able to watch it again. Oh well. Will have to wait until they "officially" release it, which will be when the new Will Smith movie, Hancock, comes out - and this movie looks good, too.

Weekend was good. Got some writing done, danced to some old music with my daughter, and got in some good quality time with hubby. It's been rather calm and quiet around the place with my stepson off to see his mom in Kentucky. :-)

Four-day work week - yay! And on Wednesday, I'm giving a talk at a retirement center, one I've been to twice before. They keep asking me back, so I must be doing something right. *grin* The theme for this particular speech is "patriotism" in keeping with the 4th of July holiday. I've started to dig into my books on the American Revolution that I had in graduate school. I did love that class - and now I'm having thoughts of diving into that time period again. I have several ideas for novels set during the Revolution, but we'll see if any of them are strong enough to knock me off my World War II platform.

Found the digital camera, so I've been snapping photos again. My daughter has been collecting fireflies at night and putting them in her "bug jar", then releasing them later. I tried to get a few photos of them, but they all turned out blurry. Little guys refuse to sit still and pose!


  1. Sounds like a lovely week!

    I love the American Revolution historical period as well -- there's so much inspiration there!

  2. Darn about that trailer. Sean would have loved to have seen it (me too!)

    Have fun doing that talk - sounds interesting :) :)

  3. Ah, the American Revolution. I can see a new novel in the making...

    That weekend sounds just perfect.

  4. Good luck with your talk...sounds like it'll be a good one! Have a great 4th of July weekend--


I love to hear from you!

It's Time

I've had this blog for over 10 years. But I'm finding that I go to it less and less. Maybe it's the death of blogging that broug...
