A pretty insane and yet sort of lazy weekend here. Yesterday was my birthday, the big FOUR OH. I was not pleased by this for most of last week but I was pretty much so busy I didn’t notice it until it was right on me. Which, you know, isn’t that bad. I did have a nice day. My husband let me sleep in, he brought me so many cupcakes even I couldn’t eat them all. My kids drew me pictures, friends sent me notes and I even wrote.
I found what I think is the foundation song for Sensual Magic. Sensual Magic is the next novella for Spice, the follow up to this May’s What Happens in Vegas –
Soundgarden – Fell On Black Days
Yeah, this one might be darker than I’d thought originally. Part of it is that I’m struggling against this other idea I really want to write but I have NO time to do it so it’s poking at me.
Now, I’m going to see if I can’t actually, um, well you know, write and stuff! Later this afternoon I’ll be hanging out with Maya Banks, Jaci Burtron and Diane Craver over at the Samhain Cafe. I’ll be there from 2 – 5 or so my time (pacific) but there’ll be fun to be had until 8 pm pacific!
Another song from Sensual Magic’s Playlist:

Happy Birthday girl! Welcome to your 40s. They’re pretty good from where I’m sitting.
And I did find a typo above–I think you meant to say more cupcakes than you could eat IN ONE SITTING. There is no such thing as so many cupcakes you can’t eat them all! 😀

Happy belated Birthday Lauren!
And oh how I miss Soundgarden. Chris Cornell still rocks but there was something different (a little darker) about him then.

Happy belated birthday! Don’t think of it as your 40th, think of it as your second 39th.

Happy (belated) birthday! I’ve talked to many women who say that life is better in their forties and on than it ever was before because they feel like they’ve really come into their own. I hope it’s the same for you.
