hello august

I can barely force myself to say it, but I think
I'm pretty much… done! My manuscript is turned in and although
there are a few things outstanding and there will be more work down the
line, I'm calling it. DONE! It's taken me about 3 days to be able to
even utter the words. My shoulders are slowly sinking back down, my brow is unfurrowing, my head is clearing and I feel my self creeping back into
place. I'm thinking about summer plans with the kids, gardening, and even
sewing. And getting back in the swing of blogging. I miss everybody! I'm going to drink a few more margaritas, see a few movies,
catch up with friends. Heck I might be able to salvage some of this
Summer after all.

When I got this calendar in January I was just starting work on the
book. I've been waiting all year to turn the page to
this month. Hello Mr. Cardinal. I love you!

    How brilliant, Congratulations.
    I’m sure you will enjoy the rest of the summer now.
    It’s one of the best feelings when you have been working toward a deadline to just kick back and know that for the time being you can relax :)

    Yay! Your many devoted fans have been waiting and waiting for more happy book news :)
    I almost bought that Charlie Harper calendar the other evening but stopped when I realized that you know, it’s August already… We do have real cardinals in our yard for the first time though. We just moved to the east coast and they are everywhere here- I’d never seen one before!

    Congratulations on the handoff, Hillary! That is exciting, indeed. I hope there has been lots of celebrating, and also…lots of sleeping. 😉
