I disagree, Garfield. I love Labor Day. It's always such a fun surprise. Since it isn't a holiday with a set date, like Halloween or Christmas, I always forget it's coming until someone tells me they won't see me next Monday and then my brain gasps and does a happy cartwheel.
So to celebrate, I flew out to Vegas last night and am currently happily ensconced at at a blackjack table.
Haha, no just kidding. You all know I'm in Connecticut right now with my family. I am very predictable when it comes to down time. :)
It is also nice to be able to use this long weekend to read some of my requested manuscripts. There are some that I am very excited about, one middle grade book and one memoir in particular. I made offers to those two authors last week and I am hoping that they will both accept. I have a Skype date scheduled with one of them when I am back in the city, and will have some major submission following-up and contract stuff to do then, too.
But more about that next week! For now, I am going to use the rest of my Labor Day to go swimming in the pool and maybe try making some yummy Barefoot Contessa recipes.
