I thought I would revisit this lovely scene from S1 of RH, in celebration of the official first day of autumn...









I didn't really have any other ideas about a theme, just come along and chat! And tell us how you feel about leaves...

September 27th is my deadline for sending book six to the proofreader. I've been working mostly diligently for the last week or two to pummel it into shape. It'll be as ready as I can make it, but it's going even if it's not as polished as it should be. For some reason, writing and revising this particular book has been a challenge. Well, they all are, tbh, but this one especially so. And it's not like I didn't know the characters or the general plot. I looked forward to when I could actually start writing it. And then BAM--IDEK what happened.

I have five days left (counting today as it's barely past 8am) to get 'er done.

In other news, I attended a funeral yesterday. Not for anyone I knew well, but out of respect for my father-in-law and his brother (it was the brother's wife).

I learned what kind of funeral I don't want. The service was nice, don't get me wrong, but something like that definitely wouldn't reflect me at this point in my life. I want something more fun. I know (well, i HOPE) people will be sad, but I'd rather they celebrate my life or poke fun at me than cry at my loss.

So...how is everyone? (after that odd little random tangent)

Hope you're all well...

End of Summer Spam/Adventure Spam

Though I'd gladly endure the heat in trade for the lack of destruction from Harvey, I'm enjoying the early end-of-summer weather his presence and passing have brought.

It's not quite fall...some leaves are turning and dropping, but not many and we'll have weeks of Indian Summer to enjoy as well.

It's been and will continue to be a busy season for me. I'm really enjoying this new-found independence and freedom.

As a young adult with two kids and then with a husband and three kids, life was tied up with all that entailed. Working, parenting, spousing... Also, I was pretty timid and didn't venture out into the world much.

With my age and my love of and participation in fandom (I'm completely serious here) has come a sense of adventure and wantingness and willingness to go and do the things that seem like fun and that interest me.

Once upon a time I would have never flown to a strange city to a attend an event filled with tons of people I don't know without it being for education sake or work sake or something. But in April 2016, as you all know, I flew to Atlanta and navigated my way across the city to a hotel to attend my first fan con *all by myself.* That was a huge step for me.

Last week I went on a road trip to a large city and navigated my way through it with only help of my Google map app on my phone. Granted, I studied the route on Google maps on the computer so I had a better idea of where I was trusting my phone to get me. So I attended another con by myself (this one on a much smaller scale) in order to meet the creator of a fandom I love. Well worth the niggle of anxiety I felt on embarking on this little adventure.

Two weeks ago, I went on a ten-hour road trip to see my family by myself. Of course, I've made that trip many time over the course of the years, but never by myself. I mean, that's a long drive to make on your own. But also (and again) navigating my through the larger cities makes me nervous. But I wanted to see my family and so I did it. And I made it there and back and had a lovely time.

So tell me, please, how you are this week--hope you're all happy and well--and maybe some way fandom has changed your life aside from the obvious...
