It’s late for sure. I’m sorry I haven’t posted, but have had a few computer problems. Before I lost everything I had to buy a new one.
When I went to get the data downloaded the guy looked at the keyboard and was well maybe not alarmed, but close to it. He said that my battery was expanding into the motherboard. Now to me, I had visions of it bursting into flames while I had it on my lap, just typing away, or it exploding and burning down my house. Of course, it had been that way for a long time, but no wonder I was having trouble. I’m just glad I didn’t lose my books.
Speaking of books I finally got my first order in of Book 2 “Beyond the Pond and Back”. I had to pinch myself because I just couldn’t believe it. The reason it took so long to get them was that I needed to transfer them to my business account and for some reason that took several months. I was ready in April. I hope book 3 doesn’t have any hiccups but I guess you just never know. That one I hope will be out this fall.
Van returned safely from his trip to Colorado to see his mom. Her health is declining and he needed to see her while they were able to have a good visit. And it was a good one. I even wrote a piece on that, but then again it’s now a moot point.
I’ve also decided to take on another project and that is starting at Etsy store to sell my cards. Yes as if I wasn’t busy enough writing, I’m also cutting up paper. Which reminds me of a funny thing Van said when I was involved in sewing quilts. He said, “I don’t get it. You take some nice pieces of material, cut it up and then sew it back together.” Now it’s with paper that I am reassembling.
So between a computer crash, a downed refrigerator, deadlines to meet, projects to finish, my retired life couldn’t be better! As JoJo the bullfrog would say “I’m feelin’ fine and my roof don’t leak.”
In the last few weeks, there was a moment, just a moment mind you, that I forgot God is in control. In these crazy times all we have to know is, that God hasn’t been blindsided with any of this. I may go through these trials of life, but He is always with me walking by my side.
