It happened. Even before Maggie Bonanomi's new book, A Day at Sunny Brook actually arrived, all my copies were sold and then some. I tried to order more than what I had pre-orders for, but in the days just before the books arrived, when it was known that the publisher had begun shipping them, I got a bunch of additional pre-orders, which ate up any extra inventory that I had planned to have generally available. Unfortunately for about eight customers, the books are now on back-order, but more have been ordered from the publisher and will be here perhaps by the end of the week. If you're one of these folks, you'll be receiving an email from me today with more info. It also didn't help that I was away for most of last week and couldn't shut off ordering in time to avoid those back-orders.
It's too hot and muggy to sit up here in this room anymore! The little fan just isn't cutting the mustard and I'll have to retreat into the bedroom, the only room with a window air conditioner. What a waste of a day not being able to work outside in the garden! The weeds are winning but I just can't deal with the humidity! Couldn't even sit out on the porch and enjoy my afternoon iced coffee, something I look forward to on days when I'm home. Phooey! I hope you're managing to stay reasonably cool where you live - I know most of the country is roasting, not just me!
