Baycon starts tomorrow, which I’m very excited about. I can’t wait to get into all those panels and workshops. This year, I have the added treat of being a vendor. I’ve hooked up with a south bay writing group, who have all very kindly agreed to let me hop on board. We’ll have a table in the dealer room, which we’ll take turns manning, while we sell our books. I have no idea how this will go. I’m bringing 15 copies of each of my three books, all signed and ready to be read. I’m probably really overreaching, but out of 3000 attendees, I should sell something.
Today, my oldest grandson graduates from high school. We’re driving up to Sacramento for that. In less than two months, he goes to Marine boot camp. Not my first choice for him, but it is his first choice, and that’s what counts. I sincerely hope he prospers. And lives long, of course.
Isn’t he handsome?
Where did the years go?
That was quite a week! I’m back home after the big celebration of my FIL’s 90th birthday. We were kept pretty busy all week, which was nice. Down time is overrated.
Not only did we pay homage to my husband’s father, but I got to spend Mother’s Day with my #4 child. She’s lived down south ever since she went away to college way back in 1999 or so, except for a brief interlude in Napa, which still is not exactly next door. So being together for Mother’s Day was a momentous occasion for both of us. We also spent the day with Tayde, Mary’s mother-in-law, who has been a perfect “mother” to Mary in my absence.
Of course, we also included the husbands and kids while we explored the Birch Aquarium in La Jolla!
Now, alas, it’s back to work. I bought groceries, went to water aerobics, and checked on the garden. Some critter dug up my carrots while we were gone. Glad something’s getting use out of it.
Next up is editing of Worlds Apart and I have new childbirth series starting tonight. So I should stay out of trouble for a few days, at least.
