Man, am I beat. Loooong day, Started at 5am in Seattle when I woke up because my ride was picking me up at 6. Then a plane ride (Alaska Air – very comfortable seats) to the Oakland/ San Francisco area. The Mt. St. Helen’s volcano woke up again today. I swear I had nothing to do with it.
First stop was Maria Carrillo High School in Santa Rosa (named after the first female landowner in California, fact courtesy of librarian Sonja Bedford and Women’s history month). Wow. They were ready for me. So ready. They even had signs on the outside of their school building. That was a first.
The inside the auditorium shots didn’t turn out so good, but we took a couple during my book signing, which, yes, was held outside because the weather was so unbelievably gorgeous. Thank you to everyone who stood in line. Great school. Great students. Lots of fun! Thanks so much for being so sweet to me, MCHS. So here is what my world looked like today.
Next came a 2 hour 15 minute drive (crawl) south of San Fran to Storyteller bookshop where I talked to a bunch of folks about books. The owner, Linda, kindly gave me a copy of Prom Night, which is a hysterical book.
So it was after 9pm by the time I got back to my hotel room. Room service. I needed room service. I didn’t care what they brought me, as long as it wasn’t moving on the plate.
Zzzzz.. oh, sorry. Just let me prop up my eyelids here.
Should be a calmer day tomorrow. Zzzzzzzzzzz………………..
