Ever need to take a vacation after your vacation? I'm finally starting to feel human again, after being as sick as I've been in two years.

Wow. Nationals kicked my immune system's hiney to the curb.

I am supremely thankful I didn't have to immediately jump back into the day job and had time to sleep and lay on the couch and recoup. Recharge the batteries. Read all those amazing new authors I picked up at the book signings (I love finding new authors!) have you been welcoming in August? Isn't being sick during summer the worst? Reading any new gems? Feeling the "back to school" excitement of a "new" year?

So sorry to hear you were sick, Gillian. There really seemed to be some nasty bug being passed around National.

Hope you're feeling better.

I wish I could have made it to Nationals this year! Sorry you picked up a bug.

What is this beautiful picture on the right hand side of your page? I read mostly out of Google Reader so I saw it when I clicked through to comment. Lovely!

Hey Gillian, so sorry I missed you at RWA! I was rooting for you during the GH awards. Wished you had won, but you are already a winner and I'm sure you will get that contract very soon! And when you do, I will be toasting you. Happy writing!

Hi Mary, thanks! Kate, I know it's a scene from Scotland. Other than that, not too sure. Bonnie, so glad you had a good time! Thanks for the encouraging words.

I am feeling better, thanks for stopping by! It's just weird being so sick when it's so warm outside.

Gillian, I was following along at home on the night of the awards ceremony and was so disappointed when I didn't see you name. My fingers are still crossed for your first sale, though!

Glad to hear you're feeling better.

Hope to see you in NYC next year!

I just got back from Florida where I tried to cram a weeks worth of vacation into a long weekend. I'm exhausted! La
