Back in the Blogging Saddle

Funk & Weber, Alaska gardening, herbs on the windowsill

Parsley, basil, and thyme growing on our windowsill.

Whoopsie! I fell off my blogging horse, which I do from time to time, but I aim to climb back up now.

I’ve just been busy, that’s all. And if you can’t guess one of the things that’s keeping me busy, the image on the right should be a hint. When I’m finished here, I’m heading out to plant a bunch of veggie plants that I started six weeks or so ago. It’s been a dry, dry, dry spring here, so I’m watering, watering, watering.

But it’s not just the gardening that is to blame for my busy-ness. I’ve begun a new writing gig that has given me a mountain of new work to tackle over the coming weeks and months. Very fun work, at that. I couldn’t be happier!

When it comes to sharing this kind of news, I’m inclined to take the pregnancy approach: I want to wait until I know for sure this is going to happen before telling anyone, and I guess we’re at that point. Even now, when I’m actually doing the work, I don’t want to get into details. I’ll share details when I’ve actually given birth to the work, and you can take a look at it for yourself.

I’m not the first person to compare writing to giving birth, I know, but there it is. This has been in the works for some time, but as of today, a few things have been accepted, and I’m working on many more.

Did I mention this is super-duper fun?!

The leaves on the trees are just now sprouting, the garden is sprouting, and a new writing project is sprouting. Now, if we can get some of these fluffy white cloud to begin spouting, we’ll be great shape! (Can you believe people let me write when I spout stuff like that?)

    I enjoyed how you went from sprouting to spouting, and found it quite clever.
