Wow, today we start our retreat. It seems the time has flown by. I'm ready. Bags packed, well almost. Critiques done, check. Food I'm to bringing ready, well almost. Can't put frozen biscuits in until I get ready to leave. Money all collected, check. Anxious, double checked.

It's funny how anxious I am to spend time with eight women. We have so much to learn from each other and so much to talk about. I've changed the beginning of Susannah's Hope and I'm anxious to see what everyone says about it.  Susannah has been a challenge for me to write. She is such a brat at the beginning and changing her into a better person has caused some problems. I hope people will like her better.

I had hoped the weather would be nice because the cabin has a screened-in porch. A couple of days ago the weather person on our local station started talking about snow. Yes, snow! It isn't supposed to get to where we will be, and if it does, it will only be a dusting. They say it will be tonight and everyone should be here by 6 p.m. I think we'll be safe.

The mystery game is called Mulligan's Island. Much like Gilligan's Island, but there is a mystery. Since we are all women, four of us had to play men's parts. I'm a man, and I'm looking forward to it.

I have several things to do before I depart on my little journey. I hope everyone has a good week-end.


  1. Have a great time at your retreat! Sounds like it will be fun!

  2. Thanks Brooke. We had a ball. Can't wait to start planning another one.
