Happy Sunday, InspyRomancers! I missed y’all last weekend. I think I would have preferred hanging out here with all y’all (yes, my Midwesterness is showing ;)) instead of helping my sister move over Easter weekend :D. But she’s moved in, I’ve recovered from my fall in the moving truck while packing, and I’m back here with you guys!
What’s the weather like in your neck of the woods? Around my house, we’re entering spring weather season. You know. The kind Dorothy and Toto run from. I nearly had to pull over on my way home from work Thursday because it was raining so hard! And Sunday is supposed to be filled with severe thunderstorms. It’s enough to make a girl run for the InspyRomance Lodge where there’s only ever serene rain and none of those nasty tornado-bearing thunderboomers! ;)
(Personally, I’ve never been a big fan of being out in the rain – not even to dance – but I think my new characters may have to ;). I prefer a good book and a warm blanket while the clouds let loose.)
We had a great week kicked off by the celebration of the Resurrection of our Savior! We followed that up with some romance!
