Greetings from sunny and unnaturally warm Chicagoland, where the mercury is expected to hover between 75 and 80 degrees F today.
Ah, springtime! The daffodils are pushing out of the earth, the perennials in my garden are turning green, the deer are eating everything in sight (and leaving land mines behind)… The usual.
Spring Break here this week, which means the children are loosed from the bonds imposed by school. Whether ’tis blessing or curse I’ll leave up to you. In any event, it does equal a different schedule chez Bluestalking, and one that’s definitely more challenging as far as getting extra things done. I’ll be posting a couple of big interviews this week, and more than likely still communicating daily (as is my wont) but if I’m a little more difficult to track down this week that’s why.
I also feel it behooves me to say I’ll be loosening my schedule up more as summer comes. I’ll keep a hand in reviewing and interviewing, but it may not be as frantic a pace as it has been over the winter. Delegating will become more the name of the game, as I pass along more of the wealth that comes my way.
I’d like to read some of my older books this summer, books that are languishing on my shelves, so that may mean a little less of the newer stuff will be popping up here. It’s right and good that summer should be more laid-back, anyway. One needs more time to smell the flowers and sunscreen when the weather turns warmer.
So, most likely no change in frequency will be had (though the necessary vacation will pose a challenge…), but I’ll just be on a hammock while I’m doing it. I know, woe is me, too.
