Got the photos off to Crafty Traveler, and I’m looking forward to the articles going up. I’ll post the link here when it’s up, and I’ll also add it to my links list on the right.

Maneuvering around Manhattan yesterday was awful. Too hot and humid. I could not cool down, even spending the afternoon in very cold air conditioning. I was glad to get home, but couldn’t really do anything once I got here, except eat dinner and stare at (but not read) a book.

Of course, one of the poker stories is percolating. If I can get enough work done on the serials today, I’ll start work on it. The second one is still in the germination stage – it’s going to be vastly different from the first one.

It’s not quite as hot and humid today as yesterday, but it’s also not as nice as they promised.

My brain bakes in the heat and I just can’t function properly.

Did a major grocery shopping today – I LOVE grocery shopping. I just adore it. Grocery stores delight me. I love walking up and down the aisles, creating menus. Some day, I’ll have to write either an essay or a short story about my love of grocery store.

I also have to work on the piece for Travelpod today. I want to get it up before I go off on another trip.

And, I want to figure out what else I can write for Crafty Traveler.

Got to get back to the slave market scene in Widow’s Chamber and get it right, then go on to the next episode and get those off today.

Also, will have more racing picks up for tomorrow, and, hopefully, Monday on Racing Ink later this afternoon.

Yesterday, I tossed in a horse to the mix at the last minute –and won! That’s the way I like it – and I must thank my betting buddy, Barbara, for having the idea to take another look. She’s headed off to Saratoga tomorrow – lucky her! I want to find some good picks for her.

Okay, off to create a nice lunch (I’ve actually been cooking quite a bit, so I’m due for another Ink in My Kitchen entry soon), and then . . .to write.
