I had a wonderful weekend at the Women’s get-away Writers Retreat. It was a refreshing time with friends at a beautiful campground near Racine, MO. Ginny Polentz and I had an interesting trip there, with some unplanned scenic side trips. We enjoyed the beautiful colors of the trees.
I didn’t get as much writing done as I planned, but Sharon Kizziah Holmes, with Kids Book Press, and I worked on my children’s book, A Christmas Treasure Hunt. It was released on Tuesday, November 6th and is available on Amazon. https://www.amazon.com/Christmas-Treasure-Joyce-Valdois-Smith/dp/1945669640
New House closing
Our daughter, Holly and her husband, Erik, closed on their new house in Springfield on Tuesday. They are now proud first-time home owners. We are so happy for them!
