Ch-ch-ch-changes!

It's been so long since I blogged, and for that I am sorry. Since we returned to the states for almost three months, life has been a whirlwind. The biggest news is deciding to move back to the states at the end of this year!

So, since our return to Ecuador, our days have been filled with sorting, packing and selling. No, not filled—CONSUMED! The good news is 90% of our stuff has been sold (only two large items remain) and 95% of our packing is done.

What does this mean to my readers? Well, for one thing, I hope I will be able to get back to my writing. As much as I have enjoyed our two years here, I haven't been able to concentrate on writing at all. It's time to get back to it, write book three in my Klondike Mystery series and hopefully start on my new Lia Rules series.

I will miss the writing group I started here but it looks like it will continue on and hopefully grow. I know I will be keeping in touch with all the wonderful friends I've made here.

2016 will be the year of CRUISING. We have booked nine cruises between Jan 2016 and Feb 2017. Can you believe it? I am hoping the little Asus Chromebook I bought will be perfect for getting writing done while cruising. I'm not a big participator in the various activities and have already been to most of the Caribbean ports (where hubby will scuba dive). We did a 14 day cruise just prior to our return to Ecuador and I read a dozen or so books. That felt so good but also got me more motivated to write.

Starting the first of the year, I am going to blog once a week. No telling what the topics will be, let me know what you would like to read and I will see what I can do.

Hoping for a wonderful holiday season, no matter what you celebrate!
