Hello, my dear readers and followers! I’m up to almost 30 now! Isn’t that exciting? 😀 I think so! Anyway! So sorry I haven’t been posting on schedule. I flew to visit my sister for a few days, and I’m just now getting back into my normal writing, reading, and working routine.
Lol. Balancing all my stuff is hard! But, don’t worry! I’m working on it. I’ll have to work on scheduling posts so I don’t miss so many days! 😀
Also, My trip was fantastic! My sister lives near Detroit, which is only like 4 hours away from Chicago. So we drove over there, stayed the night and had a blast! We went to a famous park and saw a giant sculpture called The Cloudgate, but lots of people just call it the bean. 😀 We took a water taxi ride on one of the great lakes. My sister tried a chicago style hot dog and deep dish pizza. Because, it’s Chicago. It’s part of being a tourist! You have to try the food! It was great, she said. 😀 I’m vegan, so I couldn’t try the pizza or the hot dogs. But I did find a local vegan diner to try. 😀 I liked it. 😀 got a meatball sub, some potato salad & some dessert. All vegan. 😀
I live in a small city Oklahoma, so getting to get at an all vegan place is an extra special treat for me. lol. Us Okies are nearly as hip as the larger cities.
And my favorite part of my trip (besides seeing my favorite person on the planet!) was going to the famous Shedd Aqurium!
OMG! that was SO much fun! I know, weird for a vegan to like zoos and aquriums, but I love the conservation efforts they do, and how most of them have captive bred or rescue animals that can’t be released to the wild, because they’d have no idea what to do.
they had a great shark tank with black tipped reef sharks, sea otters, an octopus, penguins, all kinds of fish. (of course) little baby american alligators, river stingrays (those are so pretty!), sea lions. and my favorite….
Dolphins and Whales! ❤ ❤ ❤
I’m not even kidding. Pacific White Sided Dolpins, and Beluga Whales! 😀 Amazing! And so freaking pretty! They even had a baby whale! 150 pounds of pure aquatic adorableness.
the Whales and dolphins were great and I spent forever watching them just zoom around. We saw a show too! The dolphins did jumps and flips and waved to everyone It was great.
except for this one lady who decided to try and save a whole row of seat when there were hundreds of people with little kids trying to find a place to sit down to see the show. ugh! So rude.
Anyway, I had a really great time with my sister! 😀 ❤ Love you sweetie!
but, I got absolutely no writing done. I made one post while I was gone. lol. No writing or editing. Sorry guys! you’ll have to wait a bit longer for new stories.
I know! I suck! But, at least you got a fun post about sea critters, right? lol.
It’s all good though. 😀 I’m back home safe (and broke because I spent so much on fun stuff!) And I’m getting back to my normal routine! 😀
Probably won’t have a free book for you guys tomorrow, but I should be able to get a short review out instead. Still fun, yes?
I’m also hard at work on She Watches You Sleep. Hoping to have it out this weekend, but no promises! 😀 I’ll let you all know as soon as it’s live though.
Happy Reading, everyone! Thank’s for sticking around! Love you all! 😀 ❤
