Down But Not Out

There is a part of me that hates the Fall. October and November seem to be the two months when I’m going to catch any germ running around. Fall is also social catch-up time, when everybody revs up for the holidays. As an example, just this week, due to a head cold that morphed into a sinus/eye infection, I will be missing three grand events. On the one hand, I could say how lucky I am to have a life where I attend such functions. On the other hand, I could say ‘poor me’. I’m going with the latter.

On the plus side, while my health may be temporarily on the wobbly side, my new book, The Culinary Art of Murder, comes out November 27th (only 99¢ on pre-order). And even though my husband gave this upper respiratory infection to me, I still think he’s tops. Although in the future, he’s not allowed to come near me when he’s sick.

Meanwhile, have a joyous Fall, everyone. Stay healthy. And if that’s not possible, remember you are blessed. “To the world you may be one person; but to one person you may be the world.” Dr. Seuss was pretty danged smart.

Happy Thanksgiving.

  1. Oh dear, I thought you didn’t like Nov and Dec because of the weather, then remembered you were in a place with lovely weather. Then I thought because there was too much stress with all the holidays. But no, you love the social events. But I do get it, nasty colds, etc are the norm. Hopefully you’ll be on the mend in a few days. Going now to get your Culinary Arts book. Best wishes on your new release!!
