I just realized that I took a swan dive into the weekend without letting my friends in Bloglandia know I turned in the last installments of the book to the publisher at 11:04 am on Friday. More on Monday. I'm off to play with my dog, play in the garden and cook exotic spicy foods for my son, who is home for the week before his classes start. (UCLA is probably the only university where classes don't begin until the last week in September!)

Enjoy your play time - you've definitely earned it AND enjoy your special time with your son - and I know you will!

Hi Barbara:
I know your son is going to enjoy UCLA. I use to work in Westwood a couple of blocks from the campus and from the Village.
The spicy food sounds good too : )
Take care

Oh Yippee!! Congratulations, Barbara. I know that must feel so good. I also know you are probably already working up a storm on your next best seller.:)

Hope you had a blast with your son, last weekend before school starts!
