"Final" Revisions and A Quick Trip to Quebec

The "final" draft has been submitted and I'm now working on revising the author bio and other fun stuff.  It's all been a great learning experience so far, but the real work will start after Can You See Me Now? is release in May 2014. 

In the meantime, I'm back to revising my other work and squeezing in as much reading time as possible between all the other household tasks. 

Gene and I did manage to get away for a week to meet our German friends in Quebec City and then on to Montreal where we saw a tennis match (Raonic v. Youzny).  Unfortunately, we missed the second match (Del Potro v. Dodig) as it was postponed until the next day due to rain.

We saw a wonderful Chihuly exhibit at the local art museum and another amazing one at the botanical gardens (see attached photos).  Although not the most intricate one, the one of the dog at the train station was my favorite because of the story behind it (A faithful dog who waits at the train station for his master to come home from work.  Unfortunately, the master has died but the town's residents are so moved by the dog's devotion that they erect a memorial to him in some little town in Japan.)

Well, back to work.  Until next time, happy reading and writing.
