For the past several weeks I have been sidelined from my work. And–yikes!–suddenly everything is coming due, all at the same time. Well, within about three weeks, more or less. As if that isn’t panic-producing enough, my to-do list includes five full-length books I need to read and evaluate within a week or so. It’s an awfully close deadline, so I really do need to get really busy, really quickly. Which is exactly what I did today. Setting comfort and pleasure aside, I dove right into my power reading mode.
I know, I know. You’re thinking I’m not really working at all. Wrong! I’m working, all right, only in the lovely garden spot Dan built in our backyard rather than in my office at my cluttered desk.
Well, I’d better bid you good-by and get back to work!
