This weekend has been a whirlwind!
First, my family came down with a wicked cough this week. All of us stumbled about the house like Doc Holiday, pausing to place hands on knees as we were wracked with spasms. The Annual Discount Halloween Costume Party was supposed to be Friday (always held the week after Halloween–and everyone is encouraged to find the most ridiculous discounted costume and show up for clearance treats and discounted decorations–one year, Dalia Lance and friend showed up as Snooki and the Situation, both purchased for $5!). We had to cancel because we didn’t want to spread the Mutaba virus to friends. We had so many pumpkins (my husband raided a pumpkin patch right before the guy was about to toss them all!). Ah well. Next year will be awesome!
On top of the plague, I went to a Book Fair on Saturday–and sold some copies of my books to locals! I even had an old friend from high school show up to grab a signed copy. I did my best to avoid coughing on anyone.
Today, buoyed by thyme tea (thanks @Dragonbeck!) and good times, we had our annual ISG party to celebrate the release of the new anthology Bent Horizons. We also picked the words for next year’s anthology. There was a lot of food and signing–and it was awesome.
Good times this weekend. Now I’m ready to settle down with a mug of tea and read one of the books precariously stacked on my nightstand. One of these days, I will actually finish one book at a time!
