Reporting from Northern Virginia

A quick note because I'm SO tired -- in the middle of a big three-day craft show in Northern Virginia and having a ton of fun but exhausted. I love doing these shows -- seeing vendors I haven't seen since last year, visiting with customers, doing a fair amount of Christmas shopping, too!

Rick and Zack are at home, so tonight I went out to dinner with my friend Amy, and tried something new -- Afghani food. REALLY liked it. To me, it was similar but better than Indian food -- savory without the curry, which I've never been fond of. We talked and laughed and it was a welcome adventure!

Started a new book -- "Lord John and the Private Matter" by Diana Gabaldon, she of the Outlander series fame. Lord John was a character in the Outlander books, and I don't know if it's because I keep waiting to read about Jamie and Claire, or if I'm trying to read these while too tired, but I'm not getting into this one nearly as much as I expected. I'll keep at it, and try the second one, too, because there's no denying Gabaldon can tell a great story.

    Glad you're having fun up in NoVa.

    I have to say that I just can't get excited about the Lord John books. I don't know why, only that I'm not.
