Day Off..........


Ah, good news to me!! The latest book is finished, polished, and will be on its way into New York tomorrow via email. (A GREAT invention, if you want my opinion).
Anyway, no one but me--and probably my editor--cares that I've finished the book and big plus, really like it!
But as the title of this blog says, it's Day Off time. Tomorrow, I'll be as free as these pretty balloons. I'll head for the mall, do a little people watching, roam the bookstore and treat myself to a latte.
I'll get out of the house and remember that there is a world outside of my computer. I may even like it. I'll talk to people who aren't in my head. I may even do some shopping. The possibilities are endless!!
What do you do on your day off? What do you dream about doing? Something special? Or would you rather join me for a latte and some people watching???

    ITS DAYS LIKE TOMORROW THAT MAKE ME WISH WE LIVED CLOSER TOGETHER, FOR AS A MATTER OF FACT I PLAN ON GOING SHOPPING ALSO AND I WOULD LOVE TO SHARE THE DAY WITH YOU. SO SINCE I CAN'T DO THAT, YOU ENJOY YOURSELF, "YA WORKS HARD, YA OWES IT TO YOURSELF"!!!!!!!
    LOVE YOU,
    MOM

    Congrats Marueen! I'm always excited when you finish a book--it's another great read for me to look forward too!

    I love to latte and people watch, I also like to hang out with friends that I miss while working.

    I'm just vegging today. Yesterday I spent 7 hours working in my parent's gardening. Cleaning it up, getting it ready for winter and planting bulbs. Whoever said gardening was gentle excersice didn't work in a garden for 7 hours mostly on their knees.

    Congrats Maureen. Since Oct.30 is my birthday, I bought myself the best present, Captured By The Millionaire. I can't wait to start it. As you know, I enjoyed the other ones A LOT.

    Hope you had fun people watching.

    Ouch! Christa, my sympathies! Even my garden doesn't appreciate my efforts. I have a black thumb and have been known to bring flowers in nurseries to tears at the thought of coming home with me! Hope you had a BIG drink last night! Or tonight......=)

    Gena!! Thanks! I really hope you love this one, too. I just finished a trilogy that will be out next March, April and May, called THE KINGS OF CALIFORNIA! And I love these books!!

    Maureen, you so deserve a day of fun after writing such a fantastic book. Can't wait to see it on the shelf!

    Hope you have a fun day! Wish I was there with my latte and scone. :-)

    Hi Kate!! Oh, WISH you had been with me today! Would have been WAY more fun!!

    Congrats. I love days like that! Coming up for air and tending my garden, puttering around the house, and just reconnecting with the world!

    Plants and I get along. I have a diploma as a Horticultural Tehnician and I worked in a greenhouse for almost two years. I like outdoor plants way better then indoor and enjoy working in the garden but because I enjoy it I tend to overdo it a lot. Too bad our summers are short.
    I did have one drink the other night of pineapple rum and 7Up but that would require me getting up and going to the kitchen and mixing one.

    Erica, thanks! I do love finishing a book. For the first time in what seems forever, your head isn't filled with those character's voices...very peaceful! LOL...for a few days anyway!

    Christa...ah, see? Now I'm jealous. You can grow things! For that, I'd get up and mix you a drink!!
