Howdy everyone! By the time this blog posts I should be back from a weekend in Texas.
During a terrible heat wave. With horrible drenching humidity.
See here’s the thing—when our kids were older, nearly grown in fact, we put in a built in swimming pool. Everyone said we were insane, why the blazes were we building a pool when the kids were just getting ready to leave home? We had three reasons:
1) We both enjoy swimming and sun.
2) The kids will have something to do when they come home (and this has paid off HUGE! They love coming home and hanging out in the pool and Jacuzzi)
3) The BIG REASON, we figured we don’t travel and spend money on vacations so we’d invest in a pool and take our vacations in our own backyard.
So that last reason? That’s exactly what we’ve done and really enjoyed it! But we’ve decided we should take baby steps and start doing a little travel. (Just an aside: The kids say that their dad and I are like kids again, having way too much fun.) First on the travel agenda? Visit old friends we haven’t seen in ages.
During a blistering heat waves soaked in humidity. (My hair is frizzing just thinking about it!)
And you know what? I’m starting to think that pool was an excellent investment because we are clearly not very good at planning vacation travel! Maybe we should stay in our backyard having gin and tonics by the pool.
Having said all that, I’m looking forward to seeing friends and I bet have a good time anyway.
Okay, now it’s time for fun! To celebrate our first attempt at vacation travel in a while (to Texas! In July! During a heat wave!) let’s have a little fun! For a chance to win a signed copy of my two Wing Slayer Hunter books out this year; NIGHT MAGIC and SINFUL MAGIC, let’s play Pick Your Favorite Cowboy.
Here are the cowboys: (Some of which I borrowed from Silver’s brunch last weekend on her blog.)
Leave your pick for your favorite cowboy in the comments and you’ll be entered into the contest to win the signed copy of NIGHT MAGIC and SINFUL MAGIC. (And if I’m not around answering comments, it’s not because I’m ignoring you but I’m either held up on the trip, or slammed with stuff when I got back!)
