Blogger and Debra Are Back

Blogger is back!

But they ate my last post. Oh well, I wasn't real thrilled with it anyway. They're welcome to it.

Oh. Our. Weather! Gorgeous, perfect all week. I reveled in the sunshine and soft air, sat beneath the umbrella at our patio table in between yard work, housework and general puttering. Ironed on the patio again and read and stared at trees. Glorious.

Tomorrow our friends from Nevada arrive! Hopefully I'll post something in the morning, but after that? No guarantees. I may not make it back here until Tuesday. We'll see.

But you know? You will be here beside me. You always are. I take all 130 (or so) of you with me wherever I go and I write posts to you inside my head, phrasing words just so, correcting, making changes. I read in a Beany Malone book ages ago that that's what real writers do--even at night in bed they tweak sentences inside their minds until they're just right. So if you do that also, be encouraged! You are a real writer.

See you soon.


Look closely at the above photo. You'll see my ironing board and iron out there on our patio. I add music from that French radio station and ironing becomes a lovely experience. :)

What a strange day it was. So many blogs I read are hosted by! Glad you are back, Debra!
