Cruise Countdown & November Moon
Monday, November 2nd, 2009

In just over a month, Sasha White and I will be boarding a ship sailing to the Caribbean! We’ve booked the cruise (got a great deal, yay bad economy!). We’ve booked our flights. Now, it’s down to our own personal lists of trip preparations.

As soon as we paid for the cruise, I headed to the post office to order a new passport. My old one was lost in the move from Texas. It only took two weeks for it come back! So, check!

I booked the flight and will arrive the afternoon before the ship leaves. Sasha and I are hoping to stay with a friend of hers who lives near the port. Otherwise, we’ll get a hotel and start the party!

This week, I will call for that doctor’s appointment and go through my closet to see what kind of cruise-worthy clothing I already have. Then I’m going shopping!

Is there anything you can think of that I’m missing on my list?

November’s moon is the Snow Moon. According to The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Wicca and Witchcraft, this is a “good time to work with abundance, prosperity, and the bonds of family and friendship.”

Well, I am looking forward to a cruise with a very good friend. I’m bonding with other writers over the NaNoWriMo challenge. And of course, Thanksgiving plans are well under way. So far so good.

The Snow Moon is also the time to “use divination to get an idea of what is up ahead.” Sounds like it’s time to pull out the tarot cards and rune stones or maybe it’s just a warning to start my New Year’s resolutions early. For an inveterate planner, it’s never too early to start a new list!

    Arrange for ride to airport.
    Tanning?
    Take Lisa with (just a suggestion).

    Lisa! Great suggestions, although I’m fine with my seasonally chalky skin tone. I turn brown as a berry in the summer thanks to the pool.

    Rasha! Thanks for commenting. And I enjoy the Moon postings too, because it makes me open the book to read a little more. Have to do that research in case I ever write a witchy tale!

    Forget the tanning! Make sure to dig through your own TBR to find a couple somethings to unwind with on the flights or during quiet patches of the cruise (hah!) You and Sasha are going to have an incredibly great time!

    Fedora! I need some recommendations, then. Not anything too long. And it has to be paperback because my ereader is on the fritz.

    What kinds of suggestions would you like? Or what’s a sample of what’s on your TBR? A genre? Let us know how to focus our recommendations :D

    Estella! I get that. I’ve never been so excited about a trip.

    Fedora! I guess I need shorter books, and I’m still reading Harlequin to figure out how to writer for them.

    Hm… Some of my favorite Blaze authors–Sarah Mayberry, Tawny Weber, Leslie Kelly, Karen Foley, Samantha Hunter… I know I’m forgetting a bunch, too. If you’re in the mood for some historical cowboys, Stacey Kayne’s Wild trilogy is terrific. Let me think some more on fave category titles… I’ll get back to you :)

    Make sure to have 5 pairs of bathing suits.

    shoes for club dancing – seriously

    travel nail polish remover (comes in packets) and polish with matching lipstick – you gotta look girly girl.

    Oh yeah, and have FUN !!!!
