It's only Wednesday and it's been a long week. I haven't had much time, energy or heart to cook and write. I'm physically and emotionally drained by events going on around me. I'm also under the weather with one of those stubborn summer colds that each day manifests itself wherever it damn well pleases. Today it's making itself cozy in my chest and lungs... while some of its friends still lag behind in my head. Here's the hot tea I'm drinking while hoping and praying the phone will ring with good news.
