Writing and Stuff

Oh. Did you notice? School is back in. At least around here. And today, although not exactly being on schedule, I had all my kids in school. All the time. All four. Oh, yeah. So besides the quick-and-early trip over the mountain to pick up Husband’s car (which has a very nice new water pump […]

I’m Not Dead Yet

Just busy, apparently. Doing what? Hard to say. It doesn’t sound like much, blogpostwise. But it’s been full. Still drafting. That’s good. I reached a big hole, maybe the last one, and I’m filling it in. Little at a time. It will come. And someday I’ll give you an excerpt. Because I’m a tease like […]
