What I’m Reading:
Same as last week. I hated to leave Matt Hilton’s Dead Men’s Dust at home but it’s a hardcover and we were traveling light. Can’t wait to get back to it. Have also not finished the two non-fiction books on writing. I suspect I won’t finish any of these books until next week because I’ll be at a writing retreat Friday afternoon until Sunday afternoon (more about that tomorrow), and I also have a critique to do for my writer’s group Monday evening.
Note to self and to blog/Twitter/Facebook/e-mail friends: The retreat is only for working on the novel. I will not, repeat not, be online between Friday afternoon and Sunday afternoon.
What I’m Thinking About:
Getting this post finished so I can go to bed. Tomorrow is another travel day and we need to get up very early. And I don’t go anywhere until I’ve had my coffee.

The Best Thing I Had to Eat This Week:
My daughter makes a simmered mixture of chickpeas, tomatoes, onions, garlic, and maybe some ingredients I don’t remember at the moment (Herbes de Provence?) and then serves it over pasta (or sometimes rice). Delicious topped with fresh shaved Parmesan.
