How I Spent My Summer Vacation

Welcome friends! Casey here.

Technically, I don’t get a summer vacation but I do have a boat load of vacation time (thanks to twenty-five years with the same employer).

So guess what?  Have you ever been cornered by someone eager to share their vacation photos?

Yes? No?

Well, I’m about to do that to you right now! Seriously, it’s hard to believe another summer has come and gone. While I did find time to pen another novel (see #2), I also made sure to have plenty of fun too! Without further ado, I present – my summer in pictures.

1. May – Sheep shearing at Old Sturbridge Village! Yes, May is not technically summer yet, but my kids college classes were over so close enough. Sheep Shearing2. JuneOver Easy was well underway thanks to a helping hand from Scrivener. I’m happy to report that I finished the first draft by the end of July and it’s currently in the hands of my beta readers. The photo below is from a night at Muse Paint Bar with my writer friends. The painting on the left is mine.Muse Paint Bar3. JulyConnectiCon 2014 KICKED ASS. For three glorious days, my family was knee-deep in geeky heaven. The highlights for me and Hubby – meeting Rob Paulsen and Maurice LaMarche. You may recognize their voices from Pinky & the Brain. They were personable and during their panels – freaking hysterical.Pinky & the BrainThe boys were enamored of Lauren Landa – famous for voicing Annie in Attack on Titan. Look at her. She’s gorgeous.Lauren LandaAnd once again the costumes were amazing. These are some of my favorites.Fro- ZoneToothlessClassic CybermanSeriously – attend this convention! There is so much to do and the Connecticut Convention Center is a great venue.

4. AugustRedcoats & Rebels. Another fun year even though it was a big soggy in the morning. The rain made for light crowds at first but we still had fun. By day’s end, the sun appeared and we captured some awesome battles pictures.IMG_0639IMG_0504IMG_0379Ahh. So much fun. Well, back to writing. I have another book to plot and a few to edit. For more photos, check out my Pinterst page. Thanks for stopping by. I hope everyone had a great summer too.

If you have a moment, please share your favorite summer time moment.

  1. What fun, Casey! Looks like it was a fun…and productive summer. I had my big trip to the West Coast to see my son, took a few (very few) day trips, published Pieces of Love and have made a nice dent in the third book of the Lily Carmichael trilogy (hoping to have first draft done by and of September). i also enjoyed lots of grammy time with my little Riley angel:-) Looking forward to a Scribes get together soon!
