The photo session with Francis Zera of Zeraphoto.com went really well. I was nervous; I don’t like having my photo taken. The pictures at the start weren’t wonderful, but by the end I relaxed and it showed. I came away with a bunch I really liked.
This weekend writerly husband and I ditched the dogs with my parents and headed up to the scenic and somewhat silly town of Leavenworth, WA. It’s a recreated Bavarian village in the the middle of the Cascade mountains. Ridiculously touristy, and fun at the same time.
Washington was having a heatwave and temps were nearing 100F. I am very glad “the last room in town” hotel I booked us into had A/C. We spent a lot of time hunched over our laptops in the room, venturing out only to eat and enjoy the hotel pool. We write. It’s what we do.
Work can’t support me working in a foreign country. I’ve applied for a leave of absence for six months and have started looking for a job. Whee. It’s been fifteen years working within the safe confines of a single company. A long time since I’ve had to apply for jobs in the real world.
Look out Edmonton, the slime’s coming home!
