Doing the Friday Dance
Finally, the weekend is here! Retrograde Mercury has been kicking my butt since it came into play all those weeks ago, and I'm glad to say today is the last day of that. Hopefully that means the computer, car, utility, and other problems will now settle and I can get on with everything accordingly! For those of you that don't believe in Mercury retrograde, or have no idea what I'm talking about, feel free to think I'm nuts. After the week I've had, I'm probably pretty close to being committed anyway.
Yesterday we had issues with the water. Today it was an issue with the propane and the pilot lights (on the stove and hot water heater) . The pilot lights would go out at will, I'd relight them, and poof! Out again. I checked the amount of gas in the outdoor tank--65%--and knew it had to be some inside issue. Hubby came home from work early to find out what the heck is going on, and while it's fixed now, he can't pinpoint exactly what the problem stemmed from. *sigh*
Picasso has also returned. I caught Mini bear scribbling on the tile with a pencil late yesterday. Luckily that is easy enough to clean. All in all, my week has gone like this. One thing after another. I am SO GLAD it's Friday, I can't even begin to express how relieved I am!
Tomorrow we are going to the bookstore. Woot! I have my list, and I'm ready to shop. Bev Walton-Porter's Sun Sign for Writers is tops on my list! Oh, and I need a CSS content manual. Fun, no? I'm also going to spot shop over in the erotica section. If I bring home anything tasty, I'll post about it.
Right now I'm reading the ARC for Cathryn Fox's Pleasure Prolonged. What a fun book! I would've finished it all in one sitting, last night, if I hadn't suddenly realized it was after midnight and had to be up at 5 a.m. I'll be finishing it up tonight, and writing up the review sometime over the weekend. Next, on my list is a book by Lucinda Betts... Night Spell. It's an erotic story collection, and it looks really good.
Speaking of books, before I go, I want to do a shoutout for a blogging friend, Kimberly Holt-Whitlock. Her book Confessions of a Seriel Bitch, is coming out Nov. 21st.
Confessions of a Serial Bitch : Hadley
Hadley Scott has spent the last four years living with a selfish, money-hungry, pain-in-the-ass husband and all she wants now is for their divorce to be final. Glen, Mr. Pain-in-the-Ass himself, has other ideas. He may not love Hadley, but he does love her family's money. Hadley decides she's not going to take his crap anymore and she sets out to get her divorce no matter what it takes. Coming to Freya's Bower November 21st, 2006 For more about the author visit her website: Kimberly Holt-Whitlock.
