Yikes! The week got away from me. I’ve been fighting the same silly head cold and fever all week, but I’m better today. I also have voice for the first time in almost a week. (Yes, my husband and kids have enjoyed that.)
Soooo… Lots to catch up on. Even though I’ve been sick, I’ve been working hard. In addition to the columns this week, I turned in six new proposals to my agent. We’ll see what she says. I’ve also made it to page 130 on my YA. Yea! I was a little burned out after turning in Like A Charm last week, but I woke up Tuesday with an urge to get back to my YA.
I’ve had trouble sleeping because of the stuffy head thing so I’ve been watching a lot of old musicals late at night. Man I miss the days of Gene Kelly and Fred Astaire. I’ve also been reading. Elaine Spencer, the agent I hung out with in Nashville, had given me Night Rising by Chris Marie Green and I really liked it. It’s a vampire slaying tale, but has a very fresh take and is set in Hollywood. I also read the anthology Sex and the Single Witch, which was a lot of fun. There were two others, both of which I liked, but I’d have to go upstairs to tell you the titles. So those will have to wait. :-)
I’m having a get together for a few friends tonight and my house is more trashed than usual. I’ll do some decluttering, but I don’t know how clean it will be. :-) My husband informed me that he would do all the vacuuming. I think he’s really afraid I’m going to die or something. Maybe it’s the cough, but he’s been really nice this week.
I am going to the store for snacks, probably will pick up fruit and veggie trays as I don’t think anyone wants me touching their food. :-)
Any ideas for party snacks? (Easy ones)
What’s the craziest name you’ve ever heard? I have a distant cousin named Penatha. They call her Penny. I’ve lived with “Candy” (What flavor are you?) all my life. So Penatha doesn’t seem that bad to me, really. :-)
