Sigh. And so my trip to snowy Central New York comes to an end. I almost had to borrow a team of sled dogs for part of the drive to Southern Cayuga C.S. yesterday, but my trusty Outback plowed through thedrifts and I made it, only one minute late. My voice held out all day long and I had a blast meeting all the kids there. Thank you very much Dawn and everybody at SCCS – it was a terrific day, lots of fun and very comfortable. And yes, we ate muffins!! Oh, and I got to meet illustrator/author David Kirk, because he lives down the road from SCCS. That was very, very cool.
I only have two school visits (PA and DE) next week, so I’ll be able to get back to the non-fiction revisions I am desperate to finish.
The sun is shining on the snow. Out my window the bare maples throw strong, stark shadows. To find beauty up here you just have to open your eyes. It is sad to leave the CWF and the BH, but I miss the PA branch of the family.
Time to pack.
