Wow, it's been a whole week since I posted last. Where has the time disappeared? It seems the older I get the faster time goes by, though I know in reality that is not the case. Life is just busier.
What have I done during that time? Well, that's a good question.
I know I took the kids to the pool several times last week, almost every day. I have only gotten in once despite the warmer temperatures. I've been reading or writing, which is incredibly hard to do on a laptop outside (the reflection on the screen is an issue).
I also started writing a fantasy romance. I'm finding it to be a good release for my imagination. Anything goes in fantasy-whatever I can dream, I can make a reality. :) So far I have a shape-shifting hero and a heroine who can change her skin color, though when something unexpected happens, it changes without her thinking about it. Wouldn't that be convenient to reading another person's reaction to a situation?
The chicks we hatched several months ago have grown to almost full-sized. When I went out this morning, the young rooster tried crowing. It's comical to hear a squeaky crow, much like a young man's voice squeaks when he's going through puberty. :)
Our first fruits are being harvested (well, except for the strawberries which are finished for the year). Raspberries, cherries, white peaches, boysenberries, and gooseberries are coming in. We're taking in the last of the broccoli and cabbage--the weather is getting too warm for them. I have green tomatoes growing. My mouth is watering at the thought of having a fresh tomato to eat. I'm picky and won't eat them from the grocery store. Oh, and we ate our first batch of corn on the cob last night for dinner, too. YUMMMYYY!!!
One last thing...sadly, we have decided to sell our horses. They need more riding/attention than what we're able to provide right now. They are registered Tennessee Walking Horses, both mares. They must be sold together, since to the best of my knowledge they have never been apart. They are up-to-date on all their shots, stand well for the farrier, and are generally gentle horses. If you know of someone looking for horses (who is an intermediate or experienced rider, or who can spend lots of time with them), please pass along my e-mail (see top left of this blog).
What's going on in your neck of the woods? Are you ready for summer? Do you have vacation plans this year?
Ps 91 (NKJV)
3 Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler, and from the perilous pestilence.4 He shall cover you with His feathers, and under His wings you shall take refuge; His truth shall be your shield and buckler.5 You shall not be afraid of the terror by night, nor of the arrow that flies by day,6 nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness, nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday.
