Heavy Heat

The end of this visit is looming. I remember this feeling when I was a little girl on our visits to my mother’s family in Minnesota. I was sad to leave and yet anxious to get home. Right now, I would love to pack up my grandkids and their parents and take them home with me. They will be coming my way soon though, as well as my other kids, so there is much to look forward to.

All three reasons for my coming to Florida this time of year have gone well. Blessings abound and I have much to be thankful for, and I am. Florida is a great state to visit in winter time, but it has a special kind of hot in summer. Foggy when I walked first thing this morning, the humidity remained after the sun came out to weigh down the heat. “Heavy Heat” – that’s what I’m calling this humid, languid air. I am used to the dry of the arid west. I will say that my skin and hair love this climate, even if I am not so fond of it.

The third fantasy novel is coming along great. I have to say I love writing this new world I have created. It is just plain fun. There is probably a bit more Arthurian Legend to its genre than fantasy, however, since there is a bit of both, and I’m not done yet so I have yet to determine the extent of both, I shall continue to call it a fantasy.

Hopefully, when I return I will be able to finish the second novel, Compass Point. Some important fixes to it are swirling around in my head since I came to Florida. This is the book with some of my dad’s FBI stories in it, so it means a lot to me to get it right. I may not publish it, but I want it as good a read as possible to pass on to my kids. And so it goes…
