November 2015

What a year it has been! I had all good intentions to finish my Amish novel. Even planned a trip to Amish country. But about that time, hubby's shoulder gave out and he had to have replacement surgery.  Then he had cataract surgery.  I've noticed he is in early stages of Alzheimer's, so I am constantly repeating things to him, have to help him find things, etc.

We did do some traveling because I had the bug to move. But no luck in finding a new home. I'll put that on the back burner for now. Come spring, I'll probably get the urge again.

I've become quite active in church activities. Community chorus performs twice a year and since joining I'm busy with rehearsals.

A newfound friend has got me addicted to sewing and I'm renewing my interest in crafting.

As for writing, it has pretty much went by the wayside this year. No way to concentrate and get much done with hubby having several surgeries,  his early signs of Alzheimer's, my back/health issues, church activities, community chorus, and a renewed interest in crafting and new interest in sewing, I'm one busy lady. I'm not one to brag, but I've made several items and donated them to the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota. I hope they'll find the items useful.

I also lost my beloved Husky a few weeks ago to cancer.

Do you like Christmas parades? I do.  Haven't been to one in years. And Christmas is just around the corner.
Life can't ever really defeat a writer who is in love with writing, for life itself is a writer's lover until death - fascinating, cruel, lavish, warm, cold, treacherous, constant.  ~Edna Ferber, A Kind of Magic, 1963
