August in Anchorage. How delightful. Seventy-plus degree temps. Wow. Got to share anniversary 52–thanks to gift certificate from Pam’s brother and sis-in-law–to Seven Glacier Restaurant in Girdwood/Alyeska ski area. Awesome. Highly recommend the view and the grub.
Picked up a hard copy proof yesterday of Trapped!, our Alaska romance novel about a pilot who takes a debutante on a flight that ends "part way." Will proof and prepare for e-book and probable publication. I removed the Teflon Chameleon (from original 1997) and replaced with competent "voter." I continue to work with Orin Seybert, founder of Peninsula Air, now going into sixth decade–oldest family owned, ongoing airline in the world. Orin (80 yrs. old) and I are editing the "final" version pre-publication. I am also completing SAFE with Bears, a volume dedicated to saving lives "out there."
Another glorious week in Alaska…more rain, more grass to mow and transport to a garden compost. Busy meeting folks, providing books, pursuing signage for our biz vehicle. Hope your week was great.
July was the hottest month in Alaska history with a 62-plus average daily temp. August followed with some great news in the form of liquid sunshine. Yesterday Aug. 8 set a record for rainfall with over an inch in Anchorage. It was wet. I helped granddaughter Sarah unload her pickup of hay, spreading a tarp over her horse trailer and pickup bed. Glad I did because after twenty minutes I was no longer dry but a sponge.
