Remembering Scotland

        My sister, Venita, and I still miss the magnificence of Scotland. What a trip we had last September walking through the beautiful highlands. I look back at these pictures and want to do it all over again. From the stone cottages to the giant Huntly Castle, it was like a dream. I loved getting up in the morning in Huntly, going up to the Shortbread Factory, drinking coffee, and writing. I remember the friendly bagpipe players at the Braemar Games and our wonderful lodge perched below the mountains. Climbing the mountain in back of us in this picture was fantastic. There were very few trees, so you could see for miles. We travelled on pathways going through people's pastures. You opened the gate and shut it behind you and treked on. We almost missed the purple Heather but did see it on some of the hills and in the forests. It was a chance of a lifetime; we took it and are glad we did.

Contemplating the Adirondacks

My Cabin
     I am getting ready to head north and live in my log cabin for awhile. I like that I have only the simple things up there(except for TV and internet):) Kato is gearing up for the trip. He already knows. I guess it is that sixth sense he has.
      I am awed at my life that I get to do the things I once only dreamed about. I plan to spend time writing my next book and enjoying time with childhood friends and relatives. Love, love, love sitting on the cabin porch early in the morning in the rocking chair watching the mist rise off Mt. Sabattis.
     My next writing will be about the play, Mystery of the Buttercup. This performance will be presented July 25th at the Long Lake Town Hall.

Signing off until next week.
