Happy Monday fellow larkers, and the beginning of another week. I have been so busy lately that the days are just flying by. My daughter and son-in-law just closed on their first house and I have been helping out by painting and cleaning. The drive is an hour from work and two hours from my house, one way. They move in this weekend and there's still so much to do. I told them to take their time, after all, they have 30 years to get it all done!

Last week was also one of those weeks where it seemed I had some kind of appointment every day after work. Dentist, hair, schedule at work was all messed up because of one thing or another. One morning I went in at 5:00 because hubby was going to take a train to Boca Raton, only he changed his mind at the last minute.

Did I tell you I've had another book contracted by Ellora's Cave? Breathless Surrender is another Quickie. I'm working on my third now. Won't be long and I'll be busy doing edits again. I love my editor at EC. She's as professional and thorough as the editors I've had at Whiskey Creek Press so I'm very pleased about that.

Summer is definitely here. It's hotter than hades, the air thick and muggy. I absolutely hate the heat and if I'm out in it too long I get physically sick. Seems to get worse as I get older. On the flip side I love seeing the birds building their nests in our orange tree, and hearing them singing in the mornings. We have a pair of cardinals. The grass is thick and green again and the flowers are blooming.

LOL...I feel like I'm writing a letter to an old friend, catching her up on what I've been doing. I hope you all have a great week.

Congratulations on your new contract and lots of luck. I down in Florida at the moment and enjoying the heat, most of the time!

Thanks Margaret. I thought I'd read somewhere that you're here in the sunshine state. Have a great time with your family!
