Huh! Took me till nearly the middle of the month to properly greet it! I have been remiss in posting here. There is a reason (isn't there always?), One of my books was accepted for publication by the good people at a small (but growing by leaps and bounds) publisher, Fantasy Island Book Publishing. So, much of my time has been devoted to a final go-over the whole manuscript. Hope to have that out by the end of the month. Complicating matters, and what a blessed complication it is, is my job...having been called by my former employer (after a lengthy layoff) and returning to the work I love so well! And still trying to have a life in between somewhere...being sure that my husband, my children, and my granddaughter don't feel like they come last. :-)
Life is good...I am blessed...and I do live with an attitude of gratitude...
I took time out today to de-stress just a bit by building garden totems, and on my country meanderings and reflections blog, I posted photos and basic guidelines (aka sort of instructions) for how to build them. That is here: http://cypherbuss.wordpress.com/2011/06/12/never-look-at-a-vase-or-an-ashtray-the-same-way-again/
I leave you with the beautiful words of Jonathan Swift...a wonderful wish... "May you live all the days of your life."
