Morning Meanderings…There’s No Place Like Home
I am here at my kitchen table…. safely back in Brainerd Minnesota with a hot cut of TEA,
Yes… tea. I have had a sore throat for the last couple of days. No reason why…. I don’t recall any yelling while I was in New York… however I did talk a lot. ;) Another reason for the tea is… uh… the DeChantal home seems to be out of coffee. I know, perish the thought but there it is. A trip to the grocery store today is in the planning.
After an amazing week in New York with Reagan (Miss Remmers Reviews), chatting it up with authors, publishers, bloggers, and occasionally… the perfect stranger, there comes a time when all good things must end. Thoroughly exhausted we caught our plane on Saturday morning at 5:45 am and between the two flights we were back in Minnesota by 10:00 am. I then drove home and between traffic and a lunch stop landed on my door step a little after 1:00 p.m. and promptly took a nap until 4:30 pm. SO TIRED.
Through out this past week I gave a couple hints as to things I was doing and people I was seeing. I plan to write posts this week of the events in more detail and I hope you enjoy them as I would love for you to feel like you were there. I did get a little reading done, not much but on the plane I made a dent so I do have 2 reviews to write and hopefully a couple more very soon after.
Here are a few of the highlights of the week:
* Dinner with Beth Hoffman, author of Cee Cee Honeycutt)
* Seeing the Harry Potter Exhibit
* Catching up with Sandra Brannan, author of In The Belly of Jonah (there are hints of this becoming a movie!)
* The walking tour of Greenwich Village and lunch after with author Adriana Trigiani
* Meeting Harlan Coben (oh…. he is my favorite mystery author!)
* Chatting it up with Sarah Pekkanen (author of Skipping A Beat)
* Meeting a couple of my fall tour authors…)
Going to the Broadway showing of Mary Poppins (I believe I will write my first play review!)
Anyway – I could go on and on between the awesome bloggers who I chat with here and ,meeting them in person to the food experiences (yup – there will be pictures)…
I will share it all with you! :D There are a couple of books coming out that were super exciting to get early – and that will be shared with you here as well as a copy may be showing up at my Blogiversary Party on June 9, so make a note to be here for that!
Anyway…. I need to get ready here. It is wonderful to be home and cant wait to catch up with all of you!
