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,
