Here I am again, back from the depths of Strepp Throat! My medicine made me woozie, so I didn't get much writing or reading done. Hard to do that when the letters move around in front of your eyes!

But I did get to stay home, cuddle with Buckley and watch the tube for a few days. Which means some of my brain may have leaked out ;-). I caught a few shows I hadn't seen before. Like Texas Swat. Interesting cop show... And for some reason I can't recall the rest right now. Residual effects from the meds I'm sure.

Today I am breaking out of the house. Hubby and I are going to run errands. Because even though I worked Thurs. & Fri. I didn't get out of the house the whole week except for that and I have a major case of cabin fever. Plus the weather turned beautiful here. Today is supposed to be mid-80's.

So even though I didn't get any writing done this week, I'm not stressing. I just can't do what I just can't do. I'll crunch next week and make up for some of it.

On the fire bug note: The authorities have apparently decided it IS a woman. And they have a FBI profile of her. It seems something dramatic must have happened recently in her life. Big surprise there. They don't think she knows the victims. They think it is is random selection. And they have now connected her to 17 fires in my area. But the suspect there may be as many as 30... I think Buckley will come along with us on our outings today.

What are your weekend plans?

Hi April! So glad to hear you're feeling better! Strep throat is NOT fun. Hope your weekend is great. Mine is rather blah... my hubby's out of town, and I'm in between writing books. So I've already had a pedicure, and am now sitting down to do some character charts and whatnot for my next novels.

Have fun!!

Glad you're feeling better! That is wild about it being a woman. Very interesting!

I went to my chapter meeting and we listened to a forensics expert. Fun!

Glad you're feeling better!

That's interesting about the bug being a woman - I know there's some miniscule number of female serial killers, I wonder about the percentage of arsonists.

Good luck with your errands but don't work too hard & suffer a relapse!

Glad you are feeling better!

Wow, that Fire Bug is a scary thing! Stacy sage.

Hi April! I'm so glad to hear that your feeling better! Hard to believe its so warm there when its so cold here. The temps are getting warmer but you couldn't tell by the wet cold winds. :-( Weird on the fire thing. A woman huh? Well, I hope that they catch her soon! Have a good one!

Glad you're feeling better, April. And *extra* glad they caught that lunatic! I can't imagine what goes on in some people's minds. How's Buckley doing?

April said...

Stephanie, hope you got a lot done!

michelle, a forensics expert? Sounds really interesting!

Emma, thanks. I wonder too. If I hear anything, I'll let you know!

Thanks, Stacy!

Cole, it was 80 here today!

I agree completely, Sela!
