Celebration by Margot Justes

We're celebrating my older daughter's MBA graduation by
going on a cruise during the kiddies spring break.

My grandson already said he won't be swimming in the pool
because there are sharks in the water. He thinks we're going on a power boat
like the one his parents own. I can't wait to see his face when he sees the
size of that ship.

My granddaughter is looking forward to spending time with
auntie Dina, who hates cruising and still hopes it won't happen.

To be honest her first and only cruise was a long one, and most
of her excursions got cancelled for lack of interest, and our stop in Costa
Rica was missed completely because of a medical emergency. To top that off,
last night on board was a bit breezy. She did however enjoy seeing the Panama Canal.

I keep telling her to give it a chance, and she keeps
telling me she did-and she hates cruising, but agreed to go because of the
family. I keep reminding her it's only seven days. So far that is not working.

Personally, I can't wait, really need a break, and I've
never been to Puerto Rico.

In the meantime, today I finished the re-reads of A Hotel in Paris, and it will be out on
Kindle this week. I celebrated the
finish with a delicious brunch at the Cuisine of India.

Next project is a new novella set to come out in September,
and I have to go over Blood Art and
send it to an editor. I want it ready for Halloween.

Till next time,
Margot Justes

Sounds like you have a lot to juggle, Margot. No wonder you're looking forward to vacationing!

I haven't been on a cruise in forever. We went for our honeymoon. Loved it! Hope you all have a delightful time.

We just returned from a cruise! We cruised around the Hawaiian Islands! It was wonderful - but not relaxing! We were busy every day, exhausted really, but VERY enjoyable.
The diversity of activities keeps everyone busy - I hope you and your family have a great time!
