Hey, Howdy, Hiya,
Posting on our first night here at Deer Valley, Utah's The Lodges. Where Utah's Chapter of RWA's (Romance Writers of America) conference for 2009 starts...now.
Holly heaven, Batman, this place is class. We're talking ala beautiful place. Everything is so gorgeous, done in huge white pine logs, fireplaces, full kitchens, laundry closets in each suite. The suite that we are in is a two bedroom, 3 bathrooms, full sized living room and kitchen with a large 6 person dinning table. Absolutely beautiful. Flip a switch and you have a nice and cozy gas fire in the fireplace, the chairs are big and comfy. Wonderful.
The weather is perfect, crisp fall foliage, the golds, yellows, oranges and reds, a slight nip in the air and traces of a recent snowfall on the ground. Sweater and thick jackets seem to be the appropriate attire. Of course, our cute Mary is wearing flip flops :-)
Our first course of action today was assisting Kelli Ann with the gift bags for the conference attendees and getting everything organized for tomorrow mornings early registration. The day begins at 07:30. The workshops are going to be fun and extremely educational and I'll be up early so I don't miss a thing. The count down to get here has finally made it and now its a rapid whoosh through to the end. Over too soon after waiting so long -life, as always.
