On to the next event …

We’ve exchanged whines for wine in our home today! Woohooooo!  I’ve climbed out the trench that has been my workplace for the past few weeks as I worked on the developmental edit of my new novel, The Promise of Provence. My long-suffering husband is discovering I am capable of more than muted one-syllable responses and I might even finish the book I began reading weeks ago. At least for this evening anyway …

Tomorrow is another day. Oh, yeah! Susan Sommers and I will drive to London in the afternoon  (an easy 1-1/2 hour drive from Toronto) to prepare for our presentation at the Power Of The Purse one-day women’s conference on Thursday. We’re looking forward to having dinner with the other speakers tomorrow evening and enjoying a schmoozefest with these dynamic women. Thursday is going to be an exciting and energizing day! If you are coming to the conference be sure to find us and stop for a chat!

Never a dull moment!

Patricia Sands lives in Toronto, Canada when she isn't somewhere else, particularly the south of France. With a happily blended family of seven adult children and, at last count, six grandchildren, life is full and time is short. Beginning with her first Kodak Brownie camera at the age of six, she has told stories all of her life through photography. Much to her surprise a few years ago, she began to write and has now published three novels, including two that are part of a six-book series set in the south of France. Love France? Love her work! Check out her website www.patriciasandsauthor.com She is particularly drawn to the rewarding friendships of women and the challenges many embrace once their families are grown. "It's never too late to begin something new," she enthuses. "As the saying goes, just do it!"

    I will actually BE in Toronto this coming weekend for the MADD Canada Leadership Conference. I would have tweeted to meet up but from the conference schedule, we’ll be going from 8 am to 9 pm every night. LOL!! Hectic and fabulous I am sure.

    Have a FANTASTIC conference yourself and can’t wait to hear all about it upon your return!!! Travel safe…

    1. Oh Natalie! I just read this now (Monday evening) … I’m so far behind with everything. Darn! That’s too bad because I would have come downtown and met you anyway … no matter what time!

  4. Patricia! I’ve missed keeping up with you, friend. BIG congratulations on your work on The Promise of Provence, and have a wonderful time at the conference. I know you’ll be a tremendous inspiration to others, and hope you return feeling re-energized yourself. Enjoy!

It's always good to hear to from you!
