In Limbo

Last weekend, DH and I flew to Denver to “boot” #1 Grandson off to boot camp. He’s enlisted in the US Air Force and will report at the end of July. Next week, DH and I will fly to Anaheim for the RWA conference. This week…I’m feeling in limbo.

Want to pack, but can’t because everything will need ironing when I get there if I do. Want to work on a new story, but typing eight chapters of handwritten and almost illegible scribbles seems like too much work. Two new dictation systems are giving me fits, so I’m setting them aside until I no long feel furious about they’re lack of cooperation. It has to be them, not me.

Am waiting for edits on my latest book. Those will probably arrive the day before I leave for conference. And if that isn’t enough, I have a dental appointment at 7:00 am.

Oh well, oh dear. Hope your day is going better than mine is. I’m taking comfort in knowing things will change—one way or another.

Corsets of yesteryear: BDSM for every woman.

French, late 17th century

Two weeks ago, my buddy and Sassy 7 gal, Nicole Austin, sent me an invitation to join Pinterest. I accepted, saying to self, another way to promote, and asking self, How Much Time will this one cost me?
But I am here to wave and shout and declare I am a convert!
Why? Cuz wow, I love being able to declare my interests by clicking.
Sounds weird, but I like it! And to my delight, I have folks who follow me!
1864-, American
1880, European. Silk.
Aside from astonishingly lovely pix of MEN (alleluia!) and couples in a clinch, I have a great time with finding vintage or museum quality attire that I crave to put into my historicals.
Looks painful!

Approx. 1775, French.
I have found items at the Metropolitan Museum in New York (one of my favorite museums especially for their medieval armor collection but also these) and at local museums which have been so kind as to post their priceless treasures.
Do join me on Pinterest, or as they say, FOLLOW ME! Here:
