It was another busy week around here and I have a little catch-up to do.
For starters, I still don't have any pics from the Seventies party. I'm going to ask again on Monday and each following Monday until someone at the office ponies up. We've got a lot of things going on right now though, and the primary custodian of the photos is busy putting together our annual Benefits Fair, so I figured it wasn't a good time to be too persistent.
I've got my second print draft of Steal Tomorrow en route from Lulu with my fancy new front and back covers, so I'm looking forward to getting it this week and seeing how it looks. I'd like to begin posting the story before the end of August, but in the meantime I'm posting extra content on the blog, so check it out and feel free to subscribe to the email updates. The email is through Feedburner, not me, so don't be shy-- I only know how many subscribers I have, not who they are. I hit a dry patch with my writing after Tid went to the Bridge, but I'm doing better now and new content should be pretty consistent.
I didn't do too well with exercise this past week. Weather was a big part of the problem, since for two mornings in a row we had a rain band move in off Hurricane Dolly at the exact time I needed to get out the door. I have to start my workout by 6:00 am in order to be ready for work by 8:00, so things like wind-whipped horizontal rain at 6:00 really screw things up. On Thursday, though, I took an extra half hour at lunch and got in a short run, so I made up for one of those lost mornings, at least.
Dan and I reversed our usual order of things this weekend. We had a wedding to go to on Saturday, so I made it my cooking day and did my run this morning instead, followed up with Indian food and a nap.
I have no new recipes for this week-- sorry. Maybe next week.
I also still have not found my new bunny, although I'm starting to feel like I'm ready for a new long-eared pal. One can't force these things, though.
And finally, Tidbit's old pals at Furry Butts gave us this nice award:
