So I've been SWAMPED at work and have a couple HUGE editing projects I want to try to finish this month, so I have been TERRIBLE getting around to buddy blogs, new blogs... any blogs, really. So I am going to take a few days off here. I mean I won't be completely absent. I have the following planned:

On Friday I have a guest post coming. I need to find it in my email. Erm... cold request, but I thought the blurb sounded good and agreed... That is as far as my short term memory has gotten me at the moment.

And on Sunday, I will try to pull together something Mother's Day-ey...

And then DON'T forget Monday's First Loves Blogfest! (see my 'you're doing what?' for the link)

And there are two Newses...

Leigh gave me my first blog book review from my friend circuit! She was really nice to me! You should go read it.

And I finally spotted our bird friend (from Friday's post) face to face... four times... every time I came in or out our front door today, in fact--I wonder why they don't freeze like deer--she bailed from her nest each time I passed--I may start using the back door just so I don't bother her... though, I DID mention my short term memory, yes? She is very cute, but decidedly NOT a wren like I had the other day, but I looked up the traits and she is more like this Bewick's Wren (though the map says this is unlikely—it is a SW US bird...) still, it LOOKS just like this... pretty sure this is what she is--at least a near relative.
She's cute, yeah?

So my apology again for my absence the next few days. I will try to catch up a little with people who've stopped by, but I will be a little scarce.

Everyone needs a break sometimes! Especially after the craziness of A-Z!

Siv Maria said...

Yep just another A-Z overload :) Mothers day on Sunday? We have it in Feb. over here, wonder if my two little birds over there will call :) Shout out over at my place today, stop by when you get some time.

Jenny Wrens here are fearless! They may be super tiny but by golly they will fly in your face if you harass them! LOL!!! Awwww hope the family are doing ok!

Yay for lovely Leigh! She is truly most NAKED!!

Take care

Good luck with everything you've got going on!

Cute wren!

A break sounds good. I didn't even post today, as I'm taking time off to work on my third book.
Monday's blogfest will rock!

Cherie Reich said...

Good luck getting everything accomplished! And aww, that little bird is so cute.

Laura said...

Good luck with the catch up and see you on the other side!

LTM said...

Hey! Me & the squatter! That sounds about right--LOL! Take a break, girl. You've earned it. Your book's divine, btw! ((jugs)) ;o) <3

I've been posting, but in a break mode sort of way. I can't blame you for stepping back a bit.
That little may be a relative of me.
