Welcome! This weekend let’s have coffee on the train, while the Pacific-Northwest countryside speeds by.

Yup, I’m off again. After this weekend I won’t be traveling anywhere for a good long while – a couple of months at least – but this trip I’m very excited about. It’s my dad’s birthday on Sunday, so I’m going to go spend the weekend up with him and my step-mom at their new place. I’ll also get to visit my sister, brother-in-law, and niece while I’m there, which I’m really excited about! My niece is just over a year old now, and the last time I got to see her was early in the year – so she’s grown and developed a lot of new skills since them! I’m not entirely sure what all we’ll be doing, but I know that lots of book-reading and running around will be involved.

I’ll be putting some of my train-time to use doing some writing. I’m still hoping to get my short story completed for the Insecure Writer’s Support Group anthology competition — last week I got some decent writing done on it, now I have to just piece the bits together and make a cohesive story from them. I’m also going to get to work on what needs to be done for Banned Book Week – it’s coming up fast. And, as always, I started out the year with GRAND plans, and now am finding myself facing the week with only minimum prep work done. But that’s okay – I have been collecting links as I encountered them about books being challenged, and am excited about some of the resources that the ALA (American Library Association) has put out this year. I hope you’ll join me the last week of this month to explore some of the banned books. The theme this year: Banning Books Silences Stories, Speak Out!

This past week has been pretty mellow. I got home on Saturday, after braving the heat to explore the Pueblo Grande museum in Phoenix (it was very cool and I highly recommend it, though maybe not when it’s 100+ degrees out and you’re carrying your heavy airport carry-on on your back). Home it was in the 60s/70s, and raining. I love it. Sunday mostly involved sleeping, and then it’s been back to work for me. There’s been very little time outside of work to do much of anything – I’ve mostly needed to sleep, my body is trying to fight off a little bit of a cold I think.

What have you been up to this week? Any plans for the weekend?

  1. I’ve never taken a train.. I can see losing myself in a book inbetween glances out at the countryside. Sounds like a fun visit!
