This week in the writer’s house we watched the fascinating Thunderbirds this past weekend at Scott Air Force Base, near where we live. We saw most of their practice from our driveway on Friday afternoon, but on Sunday we drove to a small nearby airport where we could see the whole show.The kids really enjoyed it and my daughter took several good shots on her I-pod. Our digital camera didn’t fare so well in the photo department. Perhaps it’s time for an upgrade. I didn’t have my cell phone with me and doubt it could have done any better anyway.
This week I am dividing up all the chapters of Heir Force into smaller ones before I print it out again for a last read before it goes to my editor. I have yet to sit down and put the cover design info together, but the ideas are swirling in my head 🙂 Stay tuned for the cover reveal later this summer.
I’m continuing my summer reading, and almost done with our five titles for the city library. For the base library, I’m counting up my minutes for their program. The kids love getting prizes this time of year, although they read quite a bit all year round with no incentive needed, but a good story!
The flowers are growing and it’s just now gotten into the 90s so they are needing more water. I hope my snapdragons, vinca, verbena and the daisy plant all make it through the hot summer.
That’s about it from my corner of the world this week.
Have you planted a vegetable or flower garden this year? Or if your on another part of the globe, are you reaping what you sowed earlier in your season?
