My parents' visit


I went to Sonoma (actually, Healdsburg north of Sonoma) today with my parents, who are in town. We went to Rodney Strong and Murphy-Goode and had a great time tasting wines. I bought a bunch, so did Dad.

I have to admit I sometimes felt a bit impatient with my parents, but at the same time, I want to enjoy this time I can spend with them. I don't see them often, and they're still in relatively good health, able to travel. Lord, help me to love my parents even more now, when I'm old enough to fully appreciate their company.

I went running yesterday with the dog, it felt great. I've been praying for God to give me a desire to exercise. I figured, it wouldn't hurt, right? And I know God wants me to take care of my body. I've been praying for God to give me a desire for His Word, so why not something a bit more trivial? Hehe. Well, let's see how it goes. Somehow I feel that the prayer to desire His Word is more momentous than the desire to exercise. LOL

Yay! I got some writing done tonight. The romantic suspense is shaping itself nicely. Man, these characters have tortured pasts. I have a crime, I have the heroine and one villainess forming into 3-D characters. I only need to formulate the other villain, which will also influence the plots of the other books in the series. I'm pretty excited at how the ideas are flowing.
