More Fun

I had planned to do a longer post or two about our week at the John C. Campbell Folk School  and our weekend in another part of the NC mountains by now, but the past couple of days have flown by filled with other things.

I'm in Greensboro for the next few days at the Writer's Police Academy, so the longer post about last week will have to wait.  After going to orientation tonight it sounds like the next couple of days are going to be fast paced and action packed.  I can't wait!

Most of the writers here are women.  I've only seen a couple of men so far.  This is my first writer's conference, so I didn't know if that was unusual or not, but one woman I spoke to said almost all the writer's conferences she's been to are a lot more women than men.  Are there more female writers?  Or do male writers just not like conferences?  It's not like this is a romance writer's conference or some other "female" genre.  I would have thought more men would like the opportunity to shoot guns and learn about things like digging up shallow graves.  Maybe they don't want to admit they don't already know about all those "manly" things?  Oh well, more guns for me.

Fun at the Folk School

I had all good intentions of doing a longer post by now, but we've been having too much fun here at what many call summer camp for adults.
But because I know there are thousand of you waiting with bated breath, I took a few pictures.  That will have to do for now.

Vacation Prep

This has been a week of running errands and trying to get ready to go on vacation. It always seems like there is so much to do before the trip. I don't know why I stress so much.  It's not like there won't be any stores if I forget something.

I was thinking late last night (very late, way too late, but this is when I think about this stuff) about how to do some blogging while we're gone. And as I was thinking, I thought "I wonder if Blogger has an app?"

Guess what???... Yep!  I don't know why it took this long for me to think to check. Maybe it's because I've never thought much about blogging from my phone until this week.  But it's now downloaded and if you're reading works.

The only limitation so far seems to be that all the pictures show up in the bottom of the post.

Back again

We lost Sable last month.  She decided to dart out the door one night and by the time we found her a couple of days later, she had run into things bigger and badder than she could handle.  She was a weird cat, but a lover in her own way, and I still find myself looking for her and expecting her to show up at various times.  On the other hand, our other indoor cat, Gicho, doesn't seem to be upset at all to be the only indoor cat now. 

Lots of little things going on since my last post, but nothing earth shattering.  My mental attitude about work is better.  Primarily because I just decided to let things go, but there have also been a few minor changes that have helped somewhat.

We're off to the John C. Campbell Folk School next week and I can't wait.  I'll be learning to tat lace and Rob will be learning blacksmithing.  I hope to do a couple of posts with some pics while we're gone if I can get a data signal on my phone to upload things. 

The week after that I'm going to the Writers' Police Academy which should be a lot of fun.  Hopefully it will provide me some inspiration to do some more writing.  I've been doing some snippets here and there, but haven't been able to really get into a story lately.

So two whole weeks away from work.  I don't know if I'll be able to come back after that!
