Robin and I are in New Mexico visiting my parents. We arrived Tuesday, and we’ll be here for two weeks before heading over to Arizona to get her set up for school. Yesterday morning, we went to the local art fair and parade, and last night we celebrated Robin’s 21st birthday with family and friends out here. It was great! My niece Maria played Irish fiddle music, Robin’s good friend C came up from Albuquerque and played her bagpipes, my sister made her famous to-die-for chocolate cake (from scratch), and we laughed and talked and had a wonderful time.
In the middle of all this hustle and bustle (!) I’m trying to get an index done with a wonky wrist. I’ve made progress, but it’s going to be a few more days of really hard work to get it out the door. Then I can relax a bit.
Speaking of celebrations, Mr. Bookwyrm and I will be married 25 years this week! I can hardly believe it. Where did the time go? We plan to take a few days off after Robin is settled in her college digs, and take a little mini-holiday together before we head home. It’s really hard to be apart on our anniversary (well, anytime, but especially this week), but I’m looking forward to some time alone together with nothing to do but enjoy pretty scenery and relax. He sent me 25 gorgeous roses to mark our anniversary (a little ahead, so I’d have more time to enjoy them.)

What I’m Reading/Watching
I didn’t watch a thing this week, but thanks to a day spent in the airport and on the plane, I got more reading done. I finished Starlight on Willow Lake (Susan Wiggs), Energized (Mary Behre), A Nun in the Closet (Dorothy Gilman), The Art of Sinning (Sabrina Jeffries), Right Wrong Guy (Lia Riley), and Some Die Eloquent (Catherine Aird.) I’ve got a lot more books to get read in the next few weeks, so I hope I can keep up the trend!
