Heartwarming Small-Town Romances and Thrilling Mysteries

Hubby spent the winter finding geocaches all over the Texas panhandle. I talked about it in an earlier blog, December of 2014 to be exact, so if you don’t know what that is, click that link to read about how multibillion dollar satellites are used to find little containers with registers in them in the oddest places. Lots of people do it, and it can be fun.

Hubby has spent a considerable amount of time hiking and hunting geocaches in Palo Duro State Park. He met a local geocacher, and they’ve driven to nearby towns and into the canyon to find some neither of them had found. They particularly love the ones that involve solving puzzles in order to get the GPS coordinates to find the cache. They think they’re fun.

Today, I went with him to the Palo Duro Canyon to find a couple of geocaches. They involved short walks on red-dirt trails, so I even got a little exercise on a warm day. Almost too warm. I’m very sensitive to heat, and it doesn’t take much for me to get overheated. Hubby knows my limitations, and he’s good about watching over me. He found the first one near a place where we could look down into a pretty gully. I found the second one, a tiny green tube hanging from a low tree limb. It was hard to find because you had to bend over to see it. I was happy that I could help out. He found several other caches while I read a book. It was such a beautiful day, it felt good to soak up sunshine.

The reason I got to go with him is I finished editing my manuscript. I have a professional editor lined up for a manuscript evaluation in April. That puts me one step closer to releasing an old book that’s been rewritten and reimagined. I’m turning Blessings From the Wrong Side of Town into Walkers on the Run, book one of a new cozy mystery series I’m plotting. I’m looking forward to it and hope you are too.

Let the sea roar, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein. Let the floods clap their hands: let the hills be joyful together before the Lord; for He comes to judge the earth: with righteousness shall He judge the world, and the people with equity. Psalms 98:7-9
