So--time to get back on the proverbial horse!
There are lots of good excuses for this recent dearth of new posts. I could blame it on the YA novel I'm writing for Bezalel Books; but over the long Fourth of July weekend, while visiting with various and sundry Pearls in Upstate NY at my husband's family's "compound" on Lake Champlain (and staying up way too late, night after night--which means getting more and more tired with each passing day!), I didn't get much done on that front either. One morning, I awoke about an hour and a half before the rest of the troops were up and was able to get almost a whole page written. But otherwise, it was a true vacation weekend for me.
There's lots to report, but that's not going to happen right now. My husband and I just made the four and a half-hour trek back to our home in NH yesterday, because I have a doctor's appointment this morning. And afterward, we're going to head right back up to NY to continue visiting with some of my husband's far-flung siblings and their families (and my mom and dad, too) before taking off for my niece's wedding this coming weekend. So as you can see, we're on the road a lot these days (which appears to be the story of our lives)--another great excuse for the low blog post output. "But doesn't all that traveling and family reunion stuff make for great blog material?" you ask. Sure it does. But it also makes for one overtired/lazy blogger!
Anyhoo, I'm just going to leave you with two bits of tid today. First, this picture of my husband and me in our Fourth of July get-ups, primed to watch the annual parade that goes right by the family homestead every year.

The big guy's shirt is advertising the brewery his older sister
is opening soon with her husband, in Peru, NY.
