There and back again....

The past few days we have been in Harrison Hot Springs, which is a fancy-ish resort thing next to a beautiful lake with - you guessed it - hot springs! It was very fun. I've never stayed in such a fancy hotel before.... They had white bathrobes on the beds, just waiting for us to take them to the hot spring-fed pools.

Me and my dad trying to walk 'cool' down the hallway in our white robes on the way to the pool.
We celebrated my Grama's 80th brithday and also burried Grandpa's ashes. It was a very, very wonderful weekend!

On the way home I finally got to spend a gift card to a Christian bookstore that my mom's friend gave me..... My mom bought two piano books, my dad got a CD, and I got two books and we still had 33 cents left over!
I got the sequel to There's No Place Like Holmes which I did a review on once upon a time.... and I got a sci-fi book which looks quite interesting. I think Christian fiction is becoming more interesting (though a lot of it looks like sci-fi/paranormal stuff now.... verses dragon fantasy). When I read the books I'll do a review.


Over the weekend I wrote 2,000 words in my novel. I'm about 1,000 behind, but oh well. I'll catch up later.
I also started writing a short story about Daniel and Varina at Harrison Hot Springs where they have to solve a murder mystery. This is my first real mystery - I'm excited!

I haven't really been reading much in the past week... I need to rectify that.

So that's what's been up with me the past few days... How about you all?

Live long and prosper.


  1. Oh, those books look cool! I agree, Christian fiction is a lot better than it used to be. It's no longer just pioneer romance, historical fiction, and dragon fantasy stories xD

  2. I enjoy reading your comments, and seeing your pictures...Appreciate your keeping in touch. Love..Grama

  3. those fashionable white robes look strangely familiar..
