It’s Sunday night and I’m tired.  Again, I was at my desk very early this morning, staring at the copyedited manuscript of The Improper Life of Bezellia Grove.  Most of the copy editor’s comments I agree with.  Some I do not.  And even though this poor soul is only doing her job (and a very good one at that), I am growing to dislike her.  OK, that’s not fair.   I’m growing to dislike her red pencil.  But, to tell the truth, I had made a mess of the chronology.  I mean really, a mess.

Finally, I had to call in my husband to help me make a new timeline and so I could figure out all sorts of little details like how old Bezellia and her sister really were in 1969 — 18 and 14 respectively, in case you were wondering.

Then I made 12 more pound cakes, put away Christmas decorations and watched a little football.  Did not go to church today, and since I was raised in the Bible Belt, feeling a little guilty about that.

Heading to bed here in a few minutes but not before I put together 20 more shipping boxes and clean the kitchen.

Goodnight all.

Pound cakes ready for shipping!

    Sounds like you are accomplishing a lot! I'm very impressed!

    I do not understand how on earth you could bake 12 pound cakes, work on your manuscript, take down Christmas, and watch some football all in one day - even if you didn't go to church! But, let me back up -I do not understand how on earth you could bake 12 pound cakes in one day. Period. Never, ever, could I do that! Did you make 12 separate recipes or do you have a recipe that makes 12 cakes or what??? I'm in awe!

    Pound cake eating Whiskeypalians are not supposed to feel guilty about skipping out on Sundays. Shows you have old BB baggage. I was about 46 bf I stripped all mine. Maybe the most reverent thing you could do was to rest, watch football and take care of your overworked soul! ;-)
