Cue the National Geographic Music!

Sorry to have been so absent this week, friends. Beloved Husband had shoulder surgery and has needed some tending; mostly to make sure that he sort-of, kind-of follows doctor’s orders. I’m happy to report he is mending well.

I’ll be posting two videos very soon: one will show examples of how I took historical fact and turned them into a chapter of CHAINS. In the other I will rave about the maple syrup being boiled a stone’s throw from my house and I will attempt to read in Norwegian.

But the most exciting thing?? We have a pair of red-tailed hawks building a nest in the Forest near the writing cottage!

My plan to keep my sunflowers safe from the squirrels this year suddenly seems possible!!
