There and Back Again

I’m feeling like Bilbo Baggins, home from the road, feeling tired but satisfied, glad to get back into life in our shire. We had a most wonderful roadtrip/book tour. Here’s a shot from Bookpeople’s window in Moscow, ID.

My sister and her daughter, Amaya, came with me and Frannie for the ride up to Seattle, then over to Idaho and down through Nevada. We had so many hilarious and awful things happen, it’s hard to remember everything. The first night in the tent, Frannie projectile vomited everywhere; at one Seattle reading only 3 people showed up (and I knew two of them–hi Joan and Kate!); one night the kids ate ice cream sandwiches for dinner. Riana was the best co-pilot ever, she dutifully climbed in the back to fill up Franster’s milk jar and kept the kids entertained while I drove. Amaya and Frannie were best cousins, immediately squabbling followed by hugging. Thanks to everyone we met, old friends we got to see again, meals cooked in our honor, and for all those beds we crashed on–couldn’t have done it without you!

I didn’t blog from the road, but my sister did at her flickr site.

Stay tuned for events and happenings in September, when Gone Feral will rise again.

    Hello, I must say, the photos on Flickr are an amazing tag-a-long journey of your travel. Thanks for no projectile images!!! The food, the activities, all looked like great fun. Keep on what you’re doing, it’s great!!

  2. Ditto… loved Rianna’s photos :) And ‘Gone Feral’… posted an Amazon 5 stars :) (Yes, it was a long wait!…. got the next one in mind yet?)

  3. I’m looking forward to reading your latest book. I read the description and I’m already a little leaky around the eyes.

    How awesome that there’s another book! I’m reading Farm City now and can’t tell you how much I love it:) Would love to drive up with my kids to see your farm someday…thank you for reminding us about our roots, to the soil, to livestock, to the give and take of living…and for your humor! You seriously rock woman!

  5. I loved Gone Feral! I loved Farm City too. Can’t wait for the next one.
    You do seriously rock! Your sister too.
