Spring! I forgot what a whirlwind it can be. The days grow longer, but it still seems there are not enough hours. I think that is because we tend to fill up all the daylight! Here is a short rundown of what is happening around my place.
My two college boys moved home for the summer. That means more. More food. More dishes. More noise!
I made a quick trip to Cove and LaGrande, Oregon to visit my sister and do a couple of book signings. It was fun to meet new people, renew some old acquaintances, and share some readings from my books. I love to hear people laugh at those things I have penned that I intended to by funny.
I’m training for another half marathon. A friend who just began running again after many years of not running asked if I would do one with her and promised to train. We are training together. She is faster than I and it is challenging me!
I conned some friends into running the Grand Teton Relay in August. Wowser! I hope we survive.
I am heading to Pennsylvania in a few days to visit my daughter and her family. (It’s really about visiting the little girls.)
We are re-landscaping – just because. It is slow going.
The garden is producing lettuce and spinach. That will help with the “more food” challenges listed above.
I am terrorizing a pair of robins as I photograph the happenings in the nest they built outside my bedroom window. Three little birds and one blue egg remain today. Poor little robin. I will have to take another photo tomorrow to see if the last egg hatched.
I’m trying to write. It is slow going, but I have a plan and I hope to get another book in print by the end of the summer. We will see. I can promise it is coming, but then – so is Christmas.
