Slow-Motion Sunday

Good news: my editor at Samhain has requested the full manuscript of my second 24-hour novel, One Night in Memphis, so I sent that off to her yesterday. Fingers crossed!


My poor 3-1/2 year old nephew is recovering from Kawasaki Disease...I never even heard of this before Friday, but I guess it's not that uncommon, especially in kids under 5. Luckily, he responded well to the drug treatment and is scheduled to go home from the hospital today. Still, a scary couple of days here.


Looks like we're going to be blessed with another gorgeous day here in the Northeast US, and I'm determined to spend as much of it outside as I possibly can. What about you? Any plans for the weekend?


Today's Unconscious Mutterings:

  1. Scrabble :: My grandmother - she and I used to play all the time, when I was a little girl.

  2. NyQuil :: A really good way to sleep...

  3. Roadtrip :: Best way to see the country

  4. Idiot :: The village _________

  5. Bandages :: Mummy

  6. Series :: All the good ones are starting up again on TV soon!

  7. Summer :: Almost over :(

  8. Prompt :: Writing...and I should use them more often than I do

  9. September :: Back to school

  10. Chicken :: Little

Fingers crossed for you on ONIM -- not that you need the luck when you have the skill ;-)

Hope your nephew has a quick recovery!

I echo Marianne's good luck wishes. And I'm also a Nyquil guy when I've got a bad cold, though that stuff will give you some seriously wicked dreams!
