Returning, Rest, and Book Events in the East

Isaiah 30:15 says, ". . . In returning and rest shall ye be saved; in quietness and in confidence shall be your strength:. . ."

I rested, and now I've returned.

This summer we've had two graduation parties, one out-of-state trip, five adult kids and one spouse moving out of the house or front driveway, two adult kids moving in [one did both], large construction projects, a garage sale, 93 days without measurable rain which meant shlepping hoses and sprinklers for up to two hours a day, and a whole lot more.

Somewhere in there, I decided to prioritize responsibilities before I lost my mind. As you see, writing is at the end of the list. I didn't think anyone would really notice if I disappeared for a while, but a few of you did.

Last weekend it rained a couple of inches. The new barn is almost done, and nearly all the books and garden tools and lawn chairs are moved in.

Only one offspring lives at home.

I hope to get back into writing of all kinds. But first!

Emily and I will be hosting three book signings in the faraway East, getting extra mileage out of a trip to a niece's wedding.

In case you can't download pictures on your email, this is our schedule:

Wednesday, September 29, 2021 10 am to noon

Goods Store, 1338 Main St, East Earl, PA

We'd love to see you there. Feel free to stop and say hi, or bring books of ours you already have, and we'll sign them.

Just so you know, in case you or a family member are extra vulnerable to Covid: the PA events will be outside.

We'll be happy to wear a mask to speak to you, if you prefer. Just ask!

I am looking forward to more rest after our return from across the country.
