Odd, but wonderful weekend

We had such plans and almost none of them came to fruition, but that’s okay. We had a wonderful time anyway. Thursday we were going to the lake for a late afternoon, sunset cruise. Unfortunately, the wind and clouds rolled in and made it impossible. Instead, we took our son out to dinner to celebrate the release of his first book, Night.

Friday morning, we hit the road running and drove south about a hundred miles, to out run the storm. We went both antiquing and junk yarding. Not everyone’s cup of tea, I understand, but we enjoy it. In addition to finding a few trinkets, we laughed and talked and reveled in each other’s company.

On Saturday, the storm hit with a force we hadn’t expected. By mid-morning the washes were running and we knew it wouldn’t be safe to bring our family and friends up here. If they actually made it to our home, I wasn’t sure they’d make it back down the hill safely. The party had to be cancelled. Not a big deal for me, I’m not a party person. Though I wouldn’t admit this to my son, who had planned and organized it for us, I was the tiniest bit relieved to not have to interact with everyone. 

His day wasn’t a whole bust, though. We spent a few hours watching the stats roll in on his book, Night. It debuted at number eleven on the All Romance ebook bestseller list and was spotted at number thirty-three on Amazon’s Gay Fiction list. With the upsurge of excitement, he sat down at the computer and wrote a little over 8000 words on his third book Wonder, which is due to the publisher in a couple of weeks.

I managed to squeeze in a bit of writing too, around all the normal household chores that always seem to be put off until the weekend. His To Own is tearing me up a bit. Brett and Alexa have hit a rough patch. Sean, the owner of the BDSM club, Cat Tails and hero of The One and Only, is trying to interject some logic into the situation. Sadly, when hearts are involved, logic doesn’t always save the day.

On Sunday, you couldn’t sand blast the smile off my face. The biggest reason being my husband didn’t leave on a month long business trip. There were no tearful goodbyes or driving home from the airport with a hole in my chest where my heart belongs. 

Today, I woke beside my love. The sun is shining, the birds are chirping and all is right with the world. Now to get to work on Brett and Alexa…

    1. He woke up a little grouchy. He has spent the last six months restoring the boat to like new condition and was disappointed we didn’t get to go out. When I reminded him, he was slated to wake up in Boston this morning, a huge grin spread across his face. “That’s right!” He then made himself very late for work, but he was a much happier camper 😉
