Progress on the Farm and at the Keyboard

Hi Folks,

Well, here’s all the news that’s new from the farm this past week. In spite of a cold wet week I did manage to harvest two of the five huge clumps of chives. They’re hanging in the greenhouse drying. 

I also harvested the rhubarb seed podIt too is in the garden house drying. While I was at it I pulled enough rhubarb to make another double batch of jam. Looking good for the coming winter already.

Just getting under way are the tomato plants which are now in blossom. Everything is looking good for now. I’m already planning how to double the raised beds next year. 

ROW80 Check-in:

I know I set a target of 2500 words for each week this round, but we had a rainy week so I had more time at the keyboard. Clocking in at 7500+ words for the week. 
However, that means a lot of other things didn’t get done, so if this coming week is sunny I will be struggling to find keyboard time. Still shooting for the 2500 for this week.

Here’s wishing you all a productive week filled with unexpected blessings.


Rainy Day

Hi folks,
It’s a cold rainy day here. I won’t bother showing you a picture as I’m sure you can picture it in your mind easily enough. The bright side of it all is I’ve got lots of writing done today. Yay me. J
Anyway, yesterday was a different matter, clear and cold. Of course me and the boys took advantage of a chance for a walk in the sun.

Last week I got a flat tire on my car. Since it flattened in the driveway I thought nothing of it, just call my buddy in the garage down the street and get it fixed. That was the beginning of the downward spiral for the poor old car. (and my bank book) He tried to pump up the tire to drive the car to the garage where he could fix it easily. No go, the hole was too big.
He jacked up the car and took the tire to the shop. The hole was still too big and the sidewall was ruined. I ordered two new snow tires. He got them in and tried to mount one on the injured side. Couldn’t do it. That’s when he noticed the broken coil spring that had punched through the first tire.
He then tried to take off the spring to order a new one, but the entire strut assemble was rusted out. Car you see where this is going? Argh. Anyway, by tomorrow I will have two great new tires and a new strut. (And an empty checking acct.) Sigh. Ah well, it has kept me home and at the computer.
Now for the ROW80 check-in

The projected release date for the new novella had to be pushed back a week because of illness. (Not mine, thanks) However, I have high hopes for later this week which will still make it a January release.
On the new book front I have managed over 12K words on the new project along with some savage plotting. I am well pleased with that.
Next week’s target is another 10K words and a book release. Wish me luck.
Okay, so now it’s your turn. What have you all been up to? Drop me a line and let me know. I do love to hear from you.
Bright Blessings
