Sunday, and the week that wasn't,
Bribed the children with a McDonald's happy meal lunch, if I could get a morning at my desk, given Christine did a day-long bookbinding workshop.
And yes, that is a new coffeemug. Gifted by Christine at Christmas, this is the first I've used it.
It means I'm far more behind than I would like to be, of course. I've half-finished reviews on my laptop of new poetry titles by Paige Ackerson-Kiely, Rita Wong and Fred Wah, and Jessica Smith, as well as What the Poets are Doing: Canadian Poets in Conversation, edited by Rob Taylor, but it might take some doing to work up the energy to get any of those finished quickly. Fortunately, I also did a handful of reviews a few weeks back, most of which haven't yet posted, so I haven't any need to push myself too hard.
Ugh. Don't get strep throat. I do not recommend it.
