We have spent the last few days getting back into our normal routines here at home after being on the road so much lately. Somebody recently asked me how our first summer in Florida was, and I told them I didn’t know, because we spent so much of it out of town. We got home […]

Almost There

A lot of readers are asking me when my next Big Lake book will be out. I learned a long time ago to never give a definite date, because when I do, something always seems to get in the way and throw me off schedule. But I got another 3,500 words or so in yesterday […]

One Week To Go

The weekend storm finally blew itself out by Sunday evening, taking the wind and rain with it. Yesterday was overcast for much of the day, but quite a bit warmer. There was a little bit of a breeze and we thought about taking our kites down to the beach, but we were both busy with […]

Now that the new issue of the Gypsy Journal is at the printers and the digital edition has been sent out to all of our subscribers, we’re just putting in time waiting for the printed issue to get shipped back to us. But that’s okay, sometimes it’s nice not to have anything on our schedule […]

Yesterday was pretty much a stay at home day for us. Terry is working on a new weaving project that is coming out great and I was writing. In the last three days I knocked out another 6,000 words or so to my next Big Lake book and the end is near, as the doomsayers […]

She’s At It Again!

If you think Miss Terry is a happy camper, you’re right. With the mailing out of the way, it’s weaving time. It’s been too long since she’s had time to work on her loom so she spent yesterday warping a new project onto her loom that’s she’s been looking forward to getting busy on. When […]

As I said in yesterday’s blog, on Friday Terry stocked up on yarn at a shop we found up in Gainesville, so she spent yesterday putting the skeins of yarn onto a swift and then wound them onto a ball winder. Then she wound the warp (don’t worry, I don’t understand most of it either) […]

Well, another year is here – 365 opportunities to smile, to love, to hope, to dream, to make amazing discoveries, and to live. I hope you do something great with the days ahead. There’s much more to life than ballgames and reality shows on the boob tube. How did you spend New Years Eve? At […]

Except for a quick run to Annville to mail out an order and stop at a roadside produce stand and a very nice meat market next to it called Laudermilch’s Meats, we were busy at home all day yesterday. After dealing with the usual morning load of e-mail, I parked myself at my desk and […]

The weatherman predicted heavy rains for yesterday and he wasn’t fibbing! It started coming down just after midnight and never stopped all day long. Sometimes it eased up to just a light shower, but then it would pour again. It was still raining 24 hours later when I was getting this blog ready to post […]
