I spent most of today quivering from the stress. Last week’s cold knocked me way off my game as far as the cookbook goes and so I started to panic about how I could possibly get it all done in time. Finally, after a pep talk from my mom, I asked my editor for an additional week. She said yes. I feel like I’ve been granted a huge gift. I will get it done after all.
The little helicopter you see above is one of the toys on Scott’s desk. He’s had it since childhood. It’s made of sturdy metal and feels solid in a way that is rare in toys these days.
