First post of the New Year and first post from Ecuador!

I am writing this on my iPad Mini so it will be short. December was truly monumentally hectic but wonderful. We packed up and left our Tennessee property and headed south to Florida a few days before Thanksgiving. We saw family and friends and had a great seven day cruise to the Western Caribbean before landing at Miami airport on Dec 12th.

For anyone interested in all the gory details plus some photos you can start with my last blog entry at Back End of Nowhere then move to my last post at Retired in Cuenca

I started a short story for an anthology but had to back out. So not much writing has been done. Soon! Readers are clamoring for book three in my Klondike mystery series. (Hang in there folks....)

I have managed to get in some reading, having read the Hunger Games trilogy. It left me in a down frame of mind, wondering what others thought of it? Not sure I care to see the third movie, maybe I will change my mind after seeing the first two.

Not sure how well the formatting will work from the iPad, we will see. Here are a couple of photos from Ecuador for you.

Okay, the draft mode in Blogger from the iPad worked, cleaned it up on the laptop, added links (not sure why we can't do that in the iPad app) and added a couple more photos.

Hmmm, maybe tomorrow I'll write? Or maybe read....Ender's Game is next! What are you reading now?


  1. Theres nothing like writing on a computer, too much limited functionality on touch devices ;) photos look amazing!! Enjoy your reading

  2. Awesome that you're all settled in, Donna! Ecuador looks gorgeous. I had to laugh at your photo and comment about the veggies and fruit: yes, in LatAm these things are dirt-cheap, and SO good. Glad you get to enjoy this now!
