On a non-related note, I love the picture on the sides of the Amazon boxes. I think it's actually an arrow, but it looks like a smile and a dimple. I smile when I get boxes from Amazon! I got 3 of them today! No, not books, silly! A dehydrator!!
My other love is gardening; fruit and veggie stuff. When there's lots of produce, we eat, can, and freeze. Now I can dehydrate without borrowing a nice lady's machine! Mmmmm. I have some Bartlett Pears just waiting for me to start the process. Unless there's a major surplus, about half usually make it to the packaging stage. :) Dried pears, apples, and fruit rolls anyone?
Watch out children's literary world, here I come! I blog about lessons I learn while I write children's picture books and young adult novels. I've been doing a bit here and there for years when priorities allowed. I've recently been able to make larger time commitments, and I have a finished picture book that I'm preparing to attempt the publishing relm. My brain and journal hold so many more stories that are waiting to be hatched. I'll document tips, lessons and processes from conception through publishing (let's think positively, here), all on my blog for all to enjoy. What a beautiful adventure it is!
