Vacation...finally!

I'm down in Southern Oregon at my parents' house on vacation for ten glorious days. The weather is beautiful and I don't have to do anything if I don't want to so I'll be spending my time reading, writing, and relaxing. Today we visited Crater Lake- oh my goodness it was so beautiful. We had a wonderful time and I'm ashamed that it's taken me so long to go back there- it's been at least twenty years. The weather was perfect for it and the kids had a great time.

Tomorrow I'm going to get some school shopping done for the kids because I don't have to pay sales tax here and I figure it's probably a good idea to get it done and save some $$ in the process. After that, I'll go visit my wonderful Grandmother. She's 82 and such a doll. I love to listen to her tell stories about her life when she was younger- partly because I get some great ideas for stories from it and partly because it's my history; it's where I came from.

Tuesday I'm meeting one of my best friends from high school for dinner. I miss her so much and I'm thrilled that I'll get to see her while I'm here.

Wednesday I'm going to the Josephine County Fair with my mom- that's our tradition for the past several years. We go to the fair, just the two of us and see one of the music shows that's playing as well as mosey around the exhibits. This year we're seeing the Charlie Daniel's Band and I can't wait.

Nothing planned for Thursday and Friday but Saturday, Sunday & Monday I'll be camping with my sister and her family at a great state park in Northern California. I haven't been camping in years so it should be a great deal of fun.

Tuesday the 21st I'll be heading home and Wednesday is my 15th Wedding anniversary so I'm hoping to do something special with hubby...My Prince Charming, My Knight In Shining Armour.

Anyway, I just wanted to let all of you, my loyal blog readers, what I'm up to this week. I hope you're all having some summer fun...or winter fun as my friends in Australia are having.

I'll write again when I get home and don't forget to visit the new blog that my critique buddies and I are co-authoring: www.princessesofthepen.blogspot.com
