Some days, you just shouldn't get outa bed.

I have so much going on right now - family visting, I'm getting over a wicked cold, tons of writing work...there seems to be no end. Not that I'm complaining about the family and work. I love both of those. The cold I could do without.

What I would really like? A long, lazy afternoon poolside. Warm sun, the soft shush of water, a sweet summer breeze. Right now that seems like it would be as good as a week's vacation.

How would you spend an afternoon of down time?

The Perfect Dish is a Top Pick!

The Romance Reviews has listed THE PERFECT DISH as a Top Pick this month, giving it a lovely five star review! How cool is that?

In other news, I'm hard at work. On something new. You'll see soon enough.

What are you working on?

Dood. Playing dead is no excuse for hogging the loveseat.

Pancakes, flapjacks, griddlecakes, whatever you call them, they're yummy. And when it comes to breakfast, I think about pancakes a lot, but they're not my "go to" breakfast food. They're delicious and yet somehow wrong. As in, the deliciousness is tempered by how not healthy they are. Does that make sense? If pancakes were full of vitamins and minerals and cancer fighting properties, I'd eat them every day. But alas, they're not.

So I thought, maybe somebody out there in blog land has a healthy pancake recipe. It could happen, right? Hence this post. If you have a delicious, healthy pancake recipe, lay it on me.

The syrup is waiting.

I blame Louisa

All of a sudden, I have a craving for cowboy boots. These cowboy boots. Here's a little secret about me - I don't just love sparkly things, I also love embroidery like this. These boots speak to me for some reason. It's not like they make me want to run out and buy a horse, but they're just so pretty.

I want them. How cute would they be with just jeans and a t-shirt? Or a sundress? I've been looking at them for days. I know they're not that practical for Florida, but then, practical isn't usually a factor I consider. Also, if I ever get out to Durango again...perfection!

Should I?

PS. Louisa Edwards is to blame for me wanting these boots. She knows why.

Places I'm going to be

Because the first three books in my gothic urban fantasy series are releasing from Orbit this year (Sept, Oct and Nov), I'm going to be doing a lot of traveling to various author/reader/writer events.

So far this year I'll be at the Romantic Times Convention, RWA Nationals, and the Authors After Dark Convention. I know that doesn't sound like a lot, but there are a few more things in the works.

Are you headed to any of those? Which ones?

I woke up hungry

I woke up hungry and thinking about food, a sure sign that while my head knows it's time to get back on the diet, my body is rebelling.

I'll be honest and tell you that my appetite is frighteningly large. My capacity for food outdoes some men. I fight it, but it's always there.

But I've eaten like a death row prisoner having their last meal for long enough. Today I must return to eating healthy and getting some exercise. (Not to rub it in for those of you in other parts of the country, but the weather here is gorgeous and I plan to head out for a spin on my new bike later.)

With that in mind, I'm off to the store to fill my fridge with fruits and veggies. Conference season is fast approaching and besides being healthy, I'd like to fit into my clothes.

Are you dieting? Exercising? What approach are you using?
