Katie's at the beach this week--without her computer!!!! She did take a paper printed version of her manuscript so that she can continue with her revisions, but she decided to make it a real vacation and leave the Mac at home. Of course, she's not completely out of touch . . . she has her iphone.
Katie reports that the water is turquoise and the beach is wonderful which makes the waiting game for her submissions easier but revisions really, really hard.
I'm here in Oxford. At home. With my girls. Trying desperately to keep them from killing each other. I know, these angelic faces couldn't ever utter a cross word.
I think the Mississippi heat is getting to all of us--100 degrees and 500% humidity. It's almost too hot to swim, so I think we'll watch Wimbledon. Whew, I'm thankful that I had last week to get some work done.
And, today we are going to make a strawberry-rhubarb pudding cake.
When we were in Nashville last week, we visited the non-profit food distribution center, the Second Harvest Food Bank, where my niece is working this summer. It is an amazing operation, run by volunteers (mostly)--many of whom are former caterers and restaurant owners. They are fixing healthy meals to distribute to homeless shelters throughout Nashville. For a sampling of some of the foods they are cooking up, check out Nancy Vienneau's blog. She was cooking Greens, Straw and Hay for lunch when we were there on Friday. Yummers!!!
