back from vacation

Edisto Island pronounced Ed is sto as in Ed is slow.
This is the unit we stayed in and the view from our deck. It was a double deck, the upper deck was screened in and had a table and chairs.
The last day we were there our neighbor spotted an alligator. There were signs everywhere: "Do not feed or disturb alligators" We didn't see any, but one day after walking around the island, I spotted a blue heron. By the time I got my camera it had flown away. On Thanksgiving Day we walked the beach and saw a school of dolphins. Earlier that day, Rachel and I had walked around the island and found a jelly fish, a sponge and a crab, besides numerous shells.
Ken and I had gone into to Charleston to see the "Festival of Lights" , there the schools made chrstmas cards the size of a door. Later that week we toured Chaleston and stopped at Kominsky's for dessert; a warm Toll House pie served with ice cream. It was heavenly.

I finished Wicked Will. It had some twists I didn't see coming, so if you haven't read this book yet you need to.
I also read the Last Apprentice: Clash of the Demons.It too was very good and I'm looking forward to tyhe next in this series. In the meantime, I am reading Hunger by Micheal Grant.

New workout equipment

I'm always bugging my husband for new work out equipment, you know a stationary bike or elliptical rider. Instead he got me a mop, broom and vacuum cleaner. Well I tried them out today and did get a very good workout and so did my house. It has been scrubbed from top to bottom and all the while I was thinking, I'd rather be blogging and had these great and wonderful things I was going to say. Instead I'm blogging about housework. I have washed all the clothes in the house today too including the sheets. I did finally settle down long enough to critique my writers groups submissions So now I guess I have procrastinated enough and while I have my butt in chair (BIC) I will progress to my own story. Sorry to say I am sorely lagging behind in the Nanowrimo month but every word counts towards the goal so I'm signing off now to visit my characters and see if they will cooperate with me.

I have a new blog

Pat and I went to a blogging class at the Florence-Lauderdale Public library. It was free and it was just me and Pat. We had the instructor all to ourselves, and even learned a little about Facebook. We're coming into the 21st century like a sailboat slicing through the water. A little unbalanced and watching out for the boom. all sails raised and going with the wind in our faces and an occasional water splash to keep us focused.
