Wow, it is turning cold already. Where has our summer gone to? Last week we had some 80 degree temperatures, this week it is in the 60’s. I love Fall though. it is my favorite time of the year. I can’t wait to take my fall drive and look at all the changing colors of the leaves. I get a coffee and start looking for the leaves.

I love downtown because on Government way, all the maple trees are starting to change colors now. it is beautiful.

I need to catch-all my readers up to what has happened the past few weeks. I stopped blogging for a few weeks because I was trying to take an online class in freelance writing and blogging. Well… I could not log on to the class and after 8 days of trying to take my class(I really looked forward to taking this class.)

I gave up and asked for a refund for the class. I wanted to learn the tricks write a blog that people want to read. That is what the class had said.

I had a great birthday. Thank you so  much for the birthday greetings on FB.I had a quiet night on Tuesday. Jeff had to work in California. It was a hard birthday because Jeff could not be here to help me celebrate the BIG 50.

At the end of September, I went with a  friend to Beauty Bay on Lake Couer d’Alene  I had a nice relaxing morning sitting on the dock and watching boaters and the water skiers. I took the climb up to the outhouse behind my friends float house. it was an interesting trek up the hill I will tell you. There was not really a marked trail to get to the out house, then I thought I was going to get stuck because I could not get the dumb door to open when I was coming out. I finally made it out of the out house ordeal and sat down on a swing a few feet from the out house. Then I saw the deer droppings. I just decided to back to my quiet lounge chair and just take in the view of the lake. My friend and her family rebuilt the float house dock last year. I think my friend told me the dock was floating away. I know she put a lot of work into this vacation home and it looks great. In Idaho, you do not have to go very far to have a home away from home.

As far as October is looking, I have sent out some press releases for the book and I am currently working on a radio commercial to try to generate some new interest in my book. The book is doing well, but I would like to market the book to a wider public interest. I can not believe the book has been published one year now. It is amazing the fun I have had writing and publishing “Healing in the Storms”. Thank you for those of you who has bought a copy of the book. I have been getting so much good feed back on the book. I am slowly working on my second book “More Healing in the Storms”. I am having fun writing this book as well. This time I mam not working two jobs trying to write at the same time. I have more time to think this year.

I am excited to announce I am having a first year since the release of “Healing in the Storms” party October 21,2011. I hope to see a lot of you at Rosalie Storments home on the Highlands to help me celebrate.

I am watching the a squirel playing, chasing each other around the tree. They are so cute to watch them play and bury the nuts and apples to get ready for winter. I can say that bad word because I like the snow. I love sitting in my office and drinking coffee and writing this blog. I will write some more soon. Be sure to check out my FB page for the book to see pictures. Have the rest of a great week.
