Thursday Thingie


It’s winter in Chicago.  They predicted a serious storm here yesterday, but it was mostly a bust up around the city.  Farther south it was very serious, including forty or so drivers who were stranded on Highway 1 and had to be rescued by snowmobile.  What an ordeal.

I figured I’d stop by and share a couple things with you, Dear Reader.  Firstly, I have a post about Triberr for my writer and blogging buddies out there.  I am a latecomer to the platform.  I didn’t join in early on because I had so many other balls in the air, but the amazing Kayelle Allen of Marketing For Romance Writers suggested we give it a try and so I’ve been playing with it for a few months.  I share my insights and thoughts over on LinkedIn; join me.  I’d love to hear your thoughts about it.

Today, I’m over at the Torquere Press LiveJournal with a bunch of photos from our recent field trip to the Field Museum.  For those of you unfamiliar with Chicago, this is one of the world’s foremost anthropology museums.  I adore their collection of totem poles, as well as their Egypt section (you can walk around inside a pyramid!) and the Maori Meeting House.  Come on by!

It’s my husband’s birthday this weekend, so we’re heading off to Galena, Illinois, for a quiet weekend of touristing.  Which brings me to a question – but first, to preface it.  My husband got a new job (yay!), but he’s a contractor and has no vacation pay for the near future (boo!).  So instead of having a summer vacation, we’re going to do a couple smaller weekend getaways.

What weekend trips sound fun to you, Dear Reader?  I need ideas!
