It Must Be Friday


What are you doing this weekend? I’m not doing anything exciting, just catching up around the house from being away. What I’d rather do is read all weekend. What about you?

Drop me a note and also let me know if you want to be in the drawing for one of two autographed copies of It Only Takes A Moment I’ll give away by random drawing from today’s comments. Like Weekend Engagement, it’s set in West Virginia. And if that’s not enough fun, check out Writeminded where they’re giving away an autographed copy of my first PAX book, The Beast Within among other things, and check out the hurricane relief auction for Larissa Ione.

    Our family is off to see my parents who we haven’t seen for the summer due to my daughter’s work schedule. Of course, my daughter and a friend popped in on my parents for a couple of days just to make me look like an idiot. Please enter me in your drawing.

  2. StDebb says:

    Heck, yeah, put me in the drawing. That’s another one of yours I haven’t read yet.

    I need to be knitting this weekend. I’m selling pink slipper socks to benefit the Susan G. Komen Foundation next month, and I have my first order already, so I need to get going on that.

    Reading would be good, too, though. I did a lot of that last weekend, reading a book my kid’s reading in school. Surprisingly, it was very good.

    Then again, the floor is filthy, so that needs my attention, too. Maybe the kid would like to earn some extra money . . .

    Am trying to get all my housework done today so that tomorrow my husband and I can go watch my grandson play football. He is only in elementary school, but they are so much fun to watch. It is supposed to be 90 degrees here this week-end (can you believe it for Minnesota):wave:, so I hope to spend some time out in our garden and flower beds getting things cleaned up and ready for Fall; I also intend to spend part of my week-end relaxing on the porch, reading one of my wonderful books I haven’t had a chance to enjoy yet and, of course, talking with our great neighbors…a terrific group of people we have come to know and spend time with.

  4. Toni Anderson says:

    I have a busy weekend planned. Kids birthday party, block garage sale, hosting a Norwex party (so I have to clean :yuck: and make some snacks) But Sunday is clear.

    Writing when I get the chance, enjoying the sunshine and walking the dogs πŸ˜†

  5. Carol says:

    I plan to finish putting together the book case I just bought. I couldn’t stand having my books all over the place anymore!!

    I would love to have a copy of It Only Takes A Moment! :yes:

  6. Shelly says:

    This weekend is full of unpacking and on Saturday I take Mom to the Reflecting Pool in DC for the Proud Army Moms rally. She’s on the board for Operation First Response and it will be the first time I’ve been able to actively be a part of this with her.

  7. Peggie says:

    I will spend my weekend cleaning and doing laundry….whay I would like to do is read:fryingpan:

  8. Mary says:

    I’m working/writing and having lunch with my daughter.

  9. Eve says:

    Well, I work at the bookstore on Saturday, and I’m having company Sunday afternoon to watch the Cowboys game – BUT – Sunday morning I plan to sit down and actually do some writing. Did some stuff last night and it felt good, so I’ve decided to dive back into it. I will be spending today going through my writing stuff and decided what to work on, etc.

    Enter me in the drawing please:yes:

  10. Estella Kissell says:

    I will be working in my yard—getting ready for fall—dividing and replanting perennials.
    Please put my name on the drawing:bananadance:

  11. Amy K. says:

    First soccer game this weekend (my son’s, not mine.) Beyond that, I NEED to get this proposal going. :hissyfit:

  12. Lynn Daniels says:

    My daughter’s first soccer game of the season is tomorrow, the same day my mother leaves and heads back to Florida. I plan to squeeze in as much writing as possible.

    And somewhere in there, do some reading on SPELL OF THE HIGHLANDER by Karen Marie Moning.

  13. Melissa Marsh says:

    Let’s see…I’m doing absolutely nothing. Hope to get some writing in, but otherwise, looks like a relaxing weekend.

  14. Melissa says:

    This weekend I plan to lounge about on my sofa and read as well.

    :shocked: IT ONLY TAKE A MOMENT is probably one of the only books of yours I don’t have. Oops, should I have said that? Would love to add it to my Suz shrine. Yes, the one with your picture and candles and my gong and small offerings in a plate….:twisted:

  15. Jill says:

    This weekend is filled with kids and their sporting events … How did I go from lazy summer to days to fall madness in one week?

  16. ValMarie says:

    Ron and I are going to Buffalo tonight with the band we travel with (which reminds me I have to cancel my doctor’s appointment). We’ll stay overnight and come back tomorrow afternoon/evening.

    I also have to edit some articles and write more of Hush Little Baby. Busy weekend, but fun.

    And, yes, I’d like to be entered in the book giveaway drawing as well.

  17. Emma S says:

    I’m off to the lovely metropolis that is…Pittsburgh (to visit the fam and attend a wedding).

    But Suzanne, I wanted to mention that at my RWA chapter meeting last night where we rehashed Nationals, several of us said that yours was the most informative workshop we attend – the one we really got the most out of.

    So, Thanks! :bananadance:

  18. Cherlyn says:

    Hopefully, this is my last weekend on lockup in my apartment, putting the finishing touches on my second book.

    I’d love to be entered into the drawing!

  19. Beth says:

    Count me in too.

    Unfortunately i get to work for the next 5 days straight πŸ™ but then again i do work in a library. πŸ˜‰

    I just dont get to read all the time like alot of people think. I wish i could read more at work.

  20. Melissa Mc says:

    My son has his very first soccer game on Saturday. He’s so excited! My daughter will be Irish dancing at a festival on Sunday.

  21. Marcy says:

    Wouldn’t you know. ‘It Only Takes A Moment’ was the book I chose when I won previously. :rotfl: It was a good one, too.

    Weekends means laundry, but I’ve slowly trained hubby to do it and I end up just having to fold clothes. :thumbsup: Other than that, nothing is planned. We’ll just wing it.

  22. Tammy C says:

    I’m going to try to spend all weekend reading since I have several reviews that need to be finished!:whip:I also need to get boxes of donations ready to be shipped off. I hope you get time to read also Suzanne! :yes: Please enter me into the drawing too.

  23. Mary Stella says:

    I’m doing a booksigning Sat night that’s part of an outdoor singles dance-drink-eat party. Should be fun!

  24. ArmyWifeToddlerMom says:

    dream weekend…..

    no dishes
    ‘no cooking
    no laundry
    no refereeing
    sleeping until I wake up on my own….

    oh and maybe a pie pan full of creme brulee

  25. Ashley says:

    Yard sale this weekend at my mom’s house. I’d rather read/sleep, but even if I werent doing the sale, I’d be working on fixing up the house. Ack.:hissyfit:

    I’d love to get one of your books. πŸ™‚

  26. Lis says:

    Printing out the half a first draft of my wip and do some revising. Get some reading done so I can finish a review I promised. The excitement! πŸ˜‰

    Please put me in for the drawing πŸ™‚

  27. Anna Lucia says:

    I have four things I Want to achieve this weekend – A Walk, Some Writing, Some admin for a writing workshop I’m co-organising and Some Sleep.

    Wish me luck!

  28. Kelly says:

    I’m doing, hopefully, blessfully, nothing. πŸ˜‰ Have a good weekend!

  29. Gina says:

    Writing, writing, and more writing. Did I mention writing/ I’ll have to check out Writeminded for Beast Within. Enter me in the drawing please!

  30. Margery Scott says:

    We’re going to visit our granddaughter tomorrow, then recovering on Sunday
    I’m planning to brainstorm my new plot on the drive there and back, if dh co-operates :blahblah:.

  31. ruby55 says:

    What will I do this weekend?

    Laundry at a friend’s house tomorrow and a home-cooked meal for this non-cook. Yeh!

    For the rest: cleaning up, clearing out, getting ready to pack for move to :???:? by Oct. 31. Just the usual.

    Contrary to Melissa, IOTA Moment is one of the 3 books of yours that I had before I “met” you on the blog. So I should let others get a copy although I wouldn’t mind getting an autographed one or another Gem. :wigglebrow:

  32. Danica says:

    I have no clue what I’m doing, but it better involve reading, sleeping, and hiding from the world. πŸ™‚ It will probably more accurately involve chasing children, dog, and man on some wild goose chase.

    Please enter me in the drawing. πŸ™‚

  33. Mechele Armstrong says:

    First day of soccer. And doing editing because I want to submit 😯 soon.

  34. Jeanette Jackson says:

    I would like to be entered in the drawing. Not much doing here either..just our regular Saturday poker night, grocery shopping, laundry..all in all pretty boring

  35. Beth C says:

    I’m working all weekend. Today the Taj, tomorrow the Showboat. Weekends are busy times for performers. I’d rather be home writing. :guitar: thanks for sharing those great stories and pics from your trip. LOVED IT!
