Busy Day

A picture book writing workshop, meeting with a man who installs security systems at work (yep, on Saturday), cold temps edging toward zero, an evening looking up books and listing a few of mine on Amazon--yes, it's been a busy day. But not too busy to watch a good movie (West is West--old but new to me), play with the dogs and cats, enjoy the fireplace and keep up with my online friends.

Tomorrow looks like writing the first draft of a grant, looking at the picture books I've written (but never sent anywhere except the hard drive on my computer), making noodles maybe, and getting the laundry done. Winter days--value them for the time they allow for reading, writing, thinking and planning. These days will soon pass and we will be buried in gardens, weeding, mowing, and pushing the boundaries of daylight to get all the chores done.

I like your reminder of valuing these winter days. They are important, but cold!

Granny Sue -- One of the reason I like winter, besides its beauty, is that one does get to sit back and relax a bit more. Summer is always loaded with long to-do lists. barbara

The extra time that winter gives us to get things done is much needed. A "rest" so that we will be ready when spring arrives.
"Pushing the boundaries of daylight" is a perfect way to describe spring and summer. We are always so busy at that time and really struggle to get in and to bed at a decent time.

I just found your blog, by following you back from my own (Beyond the Blue Gate) which you recently joined (thanks!) And I am stuck by the similarities, how many other people out there are connected by the themes of storytelling, noodle-making, picture book drafting and home canning?
I don't know how you found us, but I am certainly pleased to have found you and I look forward to following your blog.
