This and that...


Spring has sprung! Yes, peeps, it is warm and sunny in east Tennessee today, and my yard is blooming all over. Found these two pretty flowers in a red wheelbarrow this weekend. :)

Busy times at our house... hubby and I are off to NYC this Thursday morning (returning next Tuesday). I'm attending a mini-conference Thursday through Saturday noon. The rest of the time my dh and I will be playing tourist in one of our favorite cities. I'll blog about it in a couple of weeks.

We're hoping to see a show, or maybe two. We love to try new restaurants, scope out special exhibits at the museums, and simply walk the streets and soak up the sights and sounds of the great city.

I'm looking forward to seeing my editor and my agent, plus will have a chance to meet some other editors as well. It will also be a chance to renew some old writer friendships and make some new ones.

Just for fun, I'll bring back an inexpensive New York City souvenir for some lucky winner. I'll draw a name at random from anyone who posts between now and tomorrow night. :)

Hope everyone has a wonderful Monday. Even boring chores are a bit nicer when the sun is shining and it is warm outside!

Until later,
Janice Maynard

I'm so jealous wish I could go to New York. Hope you have a great time I've never been there. My first thing to do would to go to a Broadway play. Do you plan to see any?

The girls are such cuties -- my kind of flowers!

Have a great time in NYC. The weather should be perfect for sightseeing. Hope your business meetings are productive.

Oh Janice, the girls are just precious!
Have a great time in NYC - my oldest daughter was there last week for spring break. The OU Anthropology Club went - visited bunches of museums and did lots of sightseeing.

Your granddaughters are cuties!

Have fun in NYC. One of these days, I will get to go there. I've only been to La Guardia on a stop over, so I don't count that as visiting! LOL

Hey, ladies! After I posted the blog this morning, I've been gone most all day. But it was lovely to be out in the sunshine. At one stop on my lists of errands, there were five or six flowering cherry trees in bloom and the wind was sending down their tiny petals in puffs of "snow". I ended up with some in my hair and even in the car. What fun!

We may go to see The Pirate Queen in NYC or maybe even Mary Poppins. We're being spontaneous. Ha! Which can be tough for a "planner" like me, but I thought I'd kick back and see what happens.

it was great to see so many names on the blog today. I love knowing who's "hanging out" around here!

I'll post a winner tomorrow night about 10PM eastern.

Talk to you later...
