I Have to Suffer Through Another Game...
Well, the Yankees managed to squeeze out a win last night, so it's Game 4 tonight for my Cleveland Indians. I really, really hope they don't fall apart mentally now (it's been known to happen on more than one occasion...) Ryan Garko, one of their key players, is keeping a playoff blog, which is kind of cool.
You might be amused to hear that I spent all of yesterday hanging vinyl siding with hubby. Up and down ladders all day long, hammering (nails most of the time, my thumb once in a while) and today I am really tired and sore. We aren't finished, either. And I begin to realize why those guys who work construction for a living never go to the gym.
It's very helpful in the name of research, though. The hero in my WIP Summer's Song is a carpenter/construction guy, so I told myself, about 4:00 yesterday afternoon, as I was balancing on the top rung of a ladder trying to stretch out and put in one last nail, that at least I could write really accurate details for all those home-renovation scenes I'm working on. :)
THANK YOU to everyone who gave me promo ideas yesterday, for the NYC Book Fair in December. I've got a terrific list now, and my only problem is that darn 18" x 30" limited table space! Hmm...I could hang things off the front of it, right??
