Have you been bitten by the spring bug?
I haven’t and I have. I haven’t been bitten by the spring “cleaning” bug yet. It’s been nibbling at me, but hasn’t taken a bite out yet. I expect it to any day now. Each day I find I want to clean a little more. I remember I need to rearrange this drawer or closet. And thanks to Elizabeth (Riley)’s post yesterday at Mystery Lover’s Kitchen, I realize now I really need to clean out my refrigerator and kitchen cabinets.
I have, however, been bitten by the “want outside” bug. The weather is in the upper 70s and the sun is shinning bright. Thoughts of the long, cold weather are slowly starting to be a distance memory. Now I want to be outside and work in the yard. My roses need work and my herb garden thinks I’ve abandoned it which I pretty much have.
As crazy as it sounds, I don’t mind weed eating. Just give me a good book loaded on my MP3 player, my headphones and I get lost in the book. Before I realize it, the weed eating is done and I’ve enjoyed another great book. Now times like that I don’t have to hold a book in my hands to enjoy it.
I’ll keep today’s post short, as I have a long day at work and won‘t get to drop back much. Fridays are deadline day - the paper goes to bed for next week. Everything has to be finished and ready for the press run today. Sometimes it goes smooth, sometimes (most Fridays) it goes crazy.
I’ll have some giveaway winners to announce this weekend and share the lineup of the coming authors guest blogging here (a new one has been added). In addition, be sure to check out the right sidebar. Author Loucinda McGary has an ARC giveaway contest going on at her website.
Before I leave I do have a question I want to ask you. Who is your favorite villain and why? This can be a villain from a book or movie, past or present.
Crazy question I know, but I need a name for a crab. (Long story but we seem to collect one every year, and no they don‘t make it more than one or two years.) This is a mean crab so I thought of giving it a villain’s name. The last one we had, I called “Larry, the Lobster.” I wanted something a little more creative for this one, plus did I mention he’s mean.
Hope your Friday is sunny, bright and happy. What kind of spring bug has bitten you and what has it caused you to do?
