I need a backhoe!

Today was a catch-up day for me, now that the  manuscript for my April book has been turned in, and the  copy edits on Winter Reunion (November)  are  taken care of.  The next time I see Reunion, it will be out in the stores, and I can't wait.  Doesn't Steeple Hill have gorgeous covers?! Their art department is just amazing, and I wonder what they'll come up with for all of the November books!  I think my June book, End Game, has an intriguing cover, with a spooky road leading off into the mountains.

I am thankful to have those deadlines met..but now,  you should see my office!  :)   Er....maybe not. I worked on it most of the day and haven't made much of a dent in all the papers and books and whatnot that seem to grow exponentially whenever my back is turned. Do you have a "junk drawer" in your desk, or in your kitchen? Multiply that by a hundred, and you'll be able to visualize my office!  It will be such a good feeling  when it's all back in order. How about you...are you totally organized and neat-as-a-pin, or do you ever get just a tad behind like this?! I'm hoping that someone, somewhere, will tell me that I'm not alone! :)

I  had a bit of an excuse this time, though--we were traveling a bit, recently.  My husband has wanted to go to Alaska for years, and started planning this trip way last fall.  I never knew there were so many mountain ranges up there, each more beautiful than the last.  I just had to share a couple photos.

What are your favorite destinations?  Where would you like to go next?
Best wishes to you for a wonderful summer!

LOL Your desk sounds like my desk. And it does remind me of a junk drawer--it's just exploded all over my desk top. I'm hoping when we move next month I'll be able to get a better handle on the messiness.

Favorite destinations? I love the coast of Oregon in the summertime. It's cool and green, a huge change from the brown and dry heat of the central California city I live in. But really, any trip to the beach (OR or CA) is a wonderful break from my reality.

The coast of Oregon sounds beautiful, Katy. I've never been there, but just looking at pictures makes me want to visit! I love rain, and cool weather, and the wonderful, endless shades of lush green in a rainy climate.

Can I borrow it after you're done? I can't see the top of my desk or filing cabinet. Kids scrapbook items are piled high in three boxes. We vacationed in Mexico this year, but my favorite place is San Diego. Good luck with the move.

My favourite destinations are places with palm trees. I love the warmth.
But my family and I are off to Bolivia next week, to help with a prison ministry and meet the faithful down there. We're going with a great group of people, so it should be the highlight of the summer.
