Pajama Blog

This bronchitis seems like a two-steps-forward, one-step-back kind of deal.  I start out with all this ambition, and then suddenly hit the wall and have to lie down and rest.  It’s crazy.  I have  appearances scheduled at two Spokane-area libraries this weekend, and I’ll be there for sure.  No matter what.  Last year I had to cancel the same gig, because Sadie-beagle passed away that very day, and we had just lost a very dear human friend as well.  The August before that, I broke my right wrist.  I guess this year’s August story will be the bronchitis.  Maybe in 2013, we could just go straight from July to September. 

Mostly, I’ve been sleeping, and that doesn’t make for a very interesting blog unless you count the weird dreams.  :)

Skye, my Appaloosa mare, has been having foot trouble, and has to stay in her stall for a couple of weeks.  The Canadian Wrangler, the vet and the horse-shoer, who is practically a vet himself, he’s so knowledgable, have the situation under control–Skye-pie has “boots” on both front legs.  Her main problem is that she’s a little piggie and likes to eat everybody else’s food along with her own.  She stands with her head sticking out of the outer stall door and whinnies like crazy, wanting to be let out.  A close eye has to be kept on her, because she’s the original escape artist–her nickname is Houdini.  :)

I’ve managed a few artist trading cards, but even that proves taxing pretty quickly.

Here’s the worst thing about being sick: it’s boring.

Here’s the BEST thing: it’s temporary.  :)

Keep on keeping on and be grateful for all blessings–that’s my plan.

    Sure hope you are feeling better by now. I know the people would be disappointed if you couldn’t make your appearances. Back here in Kentucky we have had lots of rain and it makes those of us with sinus very uncomfortable. Love your books!

    Linda, i am sorry you are still sick with bronchitis. Some times when you get it this time of the year it just hang on for months. Hope your horse feet get better and he stops eatting the other hoses feed. You are in my prayers. Norma

    Linda, I do hope you’ll feel better soon. Take care of yourself, and let someone else take care of everything else till you are up and at’em again.

    Hope you get better soon and don’t try to do too much too soon.
    If you stay in bed until your weekend meetings there’s always movies and audiobooks :wink:
    Sending positive energy your way

    I love the title “Pajama Blog”! Makes me think of flannel and fuzzy slippers and a cup of coffee – but then I start sweating, because it is too warm for that sort of apparel right now! I too hope you get better soon. I have one chapter left of B.S. Mountain – I’m devastated that I am almost done. And I didn’t even read fast! This book is wonderful. And it’s such a long dang time until B.S. River comes out, boo hoo. Cheers, feel better, Hilda

    Linda, I know exactly what you are going thru…I am getting over the same thing! I just finished Big Sky Mountain. I am loving the characters in Parable. I just hate it when I finish one of your books….and I can’t wait until another one gets released. I’m looking forward to Boone’s story. Get better soon.

    Have faith, Linda. There has to be a good August in there somewhere. You just get better.

    It pains me now to think how many equine foot problems I’ve dealt with under my watch. Hard on the heart (mine) for the most part.

    Hang in there, girl!

    I love your books and have read my way through 85%of them. I just finished Big Sky Mountain and have read Big Sky Country, my question is will you ever write the story of Boone and Tara? I’d love to know how that goes. Thanks :)

    Prays for getting better. It is no fun getting sick in the summer. It lingers longer then winter illnesses.
