Back From California

I'm back! And let me tell you I loved California. I didn't stay long enough to see everything but I did see the Pacific and a lot of the area. What a wonderful state!

I was also very impressed with the OCC chapter. They were warm and friendly to me, as a speaker, but I also saw a wonderful camaraderie among the members!

Today I received hardcover copies of my June release, MAID IN MONTANA! The cover is beautiful. Copies of the Portugese version of ONE MAN AND A BABY also arrived today.

So, it's been a busy day. And it's going to get even busier. I found another recipe on the Pillsbury website. Southwestern Cheese-Stuffed Chicken Roll-Ups. The recipe seems easy enough. I guess if it isn't, we'll be calling the local fire department!

Getting Ready

This Saturday I'll be speaking for the OCC...Orange County California...RWA chapter. It will be the farthest west I've ever been. Actually, it will be the farthest away from home I've ever been.

That in and of itself would make the trip exciting. But I'm also seeing my friend, Deb Mullins, a former New Jersey Girl who moved to California with her husband Jay. So that makes it doubly exciting.

Of course, I have nothing to wear! LOL And my suitcase needed to be replaced. And I ran out of toothpaste. Today is the day that I ran to Walmart to get all those little things and to the mall for the new suitcase.

I've had my travel arrangements for weeks, and I should check on them but I probably won't until the day before I travel. If anything is changed or wrong with my arrangements, I'll be ... well, in trouble. LOL

So I'm looking forward to meeting the people in the OCC chapter in California! It should be a fun weekend!
