Chipmunk Busy.....


Dearest Readers,

I am, just like so many of you, enjoying the abundant harvest of this lovely season...canning, drying and tucking produce safely in my root cellar.  I believe I may have to acquire more canning jars before the garden begins to fade with the onset of Autumn.  I am quite like a chipmunk as I scurry from task to task!

Amidst this busy season Dearest and I are going to take a small break and spend some time away, relaxing and enjoying the company of my Brother-in-love and his dear Wife.  She is the loveliest of ladies and I know we will grow closer in our walk as Sisters...I so look forward to getting to know her better.

I have had little opportunity to pay long overdue "housecalls" to so many of you, but please know that you have been on my mind so very often.  Kimberly, I think of you and wonder if you are feeling settled.  Brenda, are you still keeping house amongst the ghost-yard of battered electronics? Ken, are you busy enjoying your re-enacting season?  Of course, I could go on and on, but suffice to say that you are so important to me and I am sorry for my neglect.

I have much to share with you upon our return....the garden shed is built, the fence is up and the greenhouse is about finished.  You will laugh when I tell you that I am still working on painting the house!  Who was that lady that said it would be completed promptly?  Oh, it was me...silly, silly, me.

Yours so kindredly,
Shan
