I'm Taking an Actual Vacation!

Yes, I’m spending five blissful days in San Jose, visiting my stepdaughter and her husband and daughter. I’m not doing any work while I’m here! Friends, family and avid readers of my blog know how rare that is and I’m really getting into this whole relaxing thing. Of course I’m still keeping up with my blog and Facebook, but I’m trying not to think about revisions on The Good Father or the growing concept for my 2013 book. Instead, I’ve been enjoying catching up with family, especially my totally adorable granddaughter, known for the purpose of this blog as C.C.  As you can probably guess, she’s the smartest, wittiest, and sweetest little girl in the universe. I hadn’t seen her in a couple of years, so it’s been great to get to know her. The child in The Good Father just happens to be a little girl C.C.’s age, but I’m trying to stick to my “vacation” agenda for this trip and not take research notes!

I go home Tuesday and then it’s back to work. I’ll be checking in with a more serious post midweek, and then Friday we’ll have another Story Weekend, which has been so much fun. I hope you’re all having as good a few days as I am!

    What an adorable picture! Diane, this is the best photo of you yet! You look so relaxed and rested and I’m so happy that you’re taking some time away from work.
    I don’t think I’ve ever known you to not be working on a trip! Enjoy! (-O:
