Rain and Ruin

I know I haven't been here much lately. Sometimes things get very busy at work and I just can't seem to get clear of it. It's been raining a lot here in Vegas, which is good when you are staying in bed and reading Jane Eyre again but bad when it makes you want to eat lots of toast. Somehow rain and toast seem to go together for me.
Meanwhile I noticed this week that the trees are budding. My tulips are coming up in their pots on the porch, and the sweet peas rambling, although I'd prefer them to climb the trellis above them instead.
Oh, and I just got the most annoying kind of rejection letter -- not even any useful feedback, just "we didn't connect with it."
So I'm getting my agent notebook out again.
My officemate just said, apropos of something else, "well, it's better than a sharp stick in the eye." So I'll take that as my philosophy for the day.

I will be posting for the Love at First Sight blogfest on Sunday however!

:( Sorry about the rejection, but, yes, it is better than a stick in the eye. Everything is relative.

I'm with you on the rain and toast. I've eaten more cinnamon toast this winter than I have in years.

See you at the Blogfest!
