Monday Mumblings Gasps For Air

Fresh (almost) daily from Julie Barrett

Yes, Friday's entry was an April Fools gag. As if no one could figure that out. How many design disasters can you spot on that book cover? If I listed them all, I'd run out of hosting space! And yes, I did set out to make a fug ugly book cover. 

Because I'm designing a real book cover. No foolin'. I'll post or link to it when the book goes up for sale. And no, it's not my book. This is a commission. 

About the gasping for air bit - it's spring! Time for pollen! Time for asthma attacks! Actually, I think my cleaning frenzy in the kitchen precipitated the attack. I had the window open and used a cleaner that generally doesn't give me problems. 

So yes, I am officially allergic to housework. And if I could afford someone to come in and clean (Ghu knows they'd charge hazard pay for this place!) I'd probably do it, at least for the deep cleaning. 

I ended up spending most of the weekend on the couch with a book and beverage or another. (Hey, I remember my Quantum Leap: Caffeine is a bronchodilator!) Which means I'll have a "what I'm reading" update to post soon. I finished two books and started a third. 

This is short as I have to get back on the laundry-go-round. Lots and lots of the stuff to do today.
