Things are coming together and I am getting closer to seeing my book in print. I think we have settled on a cover. A week from today I will be in Alberta visiting my granddaughter and her parents. She is almost two and I can't wait to engage in conversation with her. The sun is strong and our snow is gradually melting. I have had a wonderful winter holed up in my warm house. I have gotten about half of my third book written and am so enjoying my days of writing . Spring will bring a different routine and pace but I look forward to it all.

As my daughter pointed out yesterday I am not much of a blogger. I went to clean and organize on a day in January and never returned. I was not buried by an avalanche of closet clutter like the Fibber McGee and Molly routine(really showing my age). I will attempt to write the occasional post so that I remember how to do it and keep anyone interested up to date. All my editing for "The Year Mrs. Montague Cried" has been done thanks to the patience and guidance of Caitlin Drake. The book has now gone to the designer. I am anxious to see the finished product and hold the book in my hands. My granddaughter's second birthday is quickly approaching and I look forward to visiting Meg, Cody and Emma at the end of the month.  I am puppy sitting for my son and daughter -in- law while they soak up the sun in Cuba. I am watching the snow melt here and look forward to Spring. I will now go feed chickens and collect eggs. If I don't get back to this blog for another four weeks don't think I was injured in an unfortunate poultry accident.
