Summer is like a plate of pancakes. . .
Happy fall, people! I've been writing, and doing a little traveling, and getting everyone past the annual speed bump known as "back to school." I'm deep into new-book territory, and I'm trying to cook more often (though my seventh-grader made those pancakes), and I'm contemplating the purchase of a coffee maker (I use a small pour-over filter, but when you want nine, I mean three, cups in a row, it's a pain to make one at a time).
The kitten has grown:
He has begun to bring me presents, such as live mice (a nice country present) and waterbugs (a nice city present). If anyone knows how to say "no, thank you" in cat, please let me know.
I have a few trips and events coming up (look right for details), but the rest of this year will be, I hope (and it is a humble kind of hoping), about finishing this draft.
More soon. Soonish.
