Sorry I haven’t been blogging much these days (or should I say “these months”?). Looking for a new place to live, packing, moving, unpacking, then doing the whole thing over again (as well as trying to actually get some work done on my new novel) seem to be taking up so much time and energy. We finished our second move in two months just over a week ago. We still have some unpacking and organizing to do, but I think we’re finally starting to feel at home. We even have a backyard again — with grass, flowers and tall trees. The dog is very happy about this (and so are the rest of us!). After school today, my daughter and I went exploring the forest and creek in the ravine that is just half a block away from our new house. Very satisfying….
