Hey! What's goin' on?

I'm still alive.  This blog has been neglected because I've been working on some other things.  I started a book blog, Mom's Brain Candy where we review books and talk about writing and stuff.  Very professional*.

I found a little baby snapping turtle.  So that was pretty cool.  I like turtles.  His name is John.  John the Turtle.

If I keep my eyes closed, she'll go away.  

Aww, look at his little self!

I let him go down by the pond.  Go free John!  

Ummm, what else?  Oh, I sold four of my goats.  Now I only have four left.  It breaks my hearts to think about it, but I may find new homes for all of them.  I haven't decided yet.  I don't want to, but their barn needs to be replaced and the fences are a constant challenge.  Combined with the skyrocketing cost of hay and feed, I might not have a choice.  Blech, I don't want to think about that right now.

Happier things...I am in the editing stages of finishing my book.  I've joined a writers group to help workshop it.  My husband and the big teenager are reading it and offering comments, so hopefully by Christmas it will be ready for publishing on Amazon.

Oh and we got the big teenager off to college, though she wasn't able to board there.  The school is only 30 miles away so she is commuting.  You know the saying, "Some of God's greatest gifts are unanswered prayers"?  Well that applies here.  I am happy that she is here every night and I can encourage* her to keep up with her work.

So, I guess that's it.  I'll try to post more here.  I know-I know, I've said that before.

Have a great day!

*Not professional at all.
*by encourage, I mean nag

  1. You don't post often, but you bring a smile when you do! I hope you don't have to move the rest of your goats out... feed is up high here, in Kansas, too.
