Monday Mayhem – Dead giveaway

You always know when I’m home when there’s no 6AM post scheduled on my blog. Why is it I’m so much more organized when I’m away? Oh yeah. I get lazy when I’m at home.

Did you enjoy getting to know Linda and Holly? Aren’t they great? I love getting to know my fellow authors a little better. 🙂

I’ve spent the past two weeks in the Rio Grande valley. Like the west Texas plains, the southern tip of the state is fertile ground for a romance writer, but instead of cowboys and oilmen, I’m now hung up on vacqueros and hot Homeland Security agents. And El Patos’ chicken guisada in corn tortillas. *sigh*

Two weeks was a long time to be away from home, but I was lucky enough to be able to fly my hero down for a weekend visit. We spent 2 days on the beach at South Padre Island, and it was heavenly. He built this love nest in the sand for us:


And we enjoyed the bayside sunsets:


But it was way too short. This was the first time Mr. Mags and I have been to the beach together. We discovered that we’re astoundingly good at it, so we will be planning another trip to the sand and surf soon!

The people I worked with in McAllen were great, but by the time Friday rolled around, I was more than ready to head home to my bed and my bunny. I also made it home in time to help this little guy celebrate his one month birthday:


But I don’t recall telling him he could get so big while I was gone…. Raylon10

Silly monkey.

So that’s what I’ve been up to lately. What about you? What did I miss while I was away?

  1. Nothing much happened around these parts. Basically, work, home, relax, toddler time, bed. Lather, rinse and repeat. This month will be low-keyed but starting in May I will get busier. But I know I missed you.

  2. I can’t believe he’s a month old already, but he’s such a doll. I also can’t believe you and your hero have never been to the beach together. There are some nice beaches in Canada. Just sayin’. 😉 Glad you’re back in the swing of things again! I just started my second week of my final teaching block. I have lots of exciting stuff prepared for the students this week. I was so worried I’d find teaching three classes completely overwhelming, but it’s not that bad after all. And it helps that I have two phenomenal associate teachers who’ve been nothing but supportive. I’m a lucky, lucky girl. 🙂

  3. Great pictures! I’m so jealous of that warm weather. It’s also awesome you got to have a nice time with your hubby.
    I cant believe he is a month already!!

  4. Time flies!

    I haven’t been up to much, just took a little trip to South America, no big deal 😉 I had an amazing time.
