Just thought I’d check in and let everyone that though I haven’t posted lately, I have been thinking of this blog and my faithful followers often. I am an author and editor by trade, working out of the home, and I have been pounding away at the keyboard to get a submission to a NY agent for a Young Adult Steampunk series my husband and I are co-writing together. I’m finally done with my initial submission. We brainstormed the entire 9-book series and even have Tor Books interested in the idea. VERY exciting, but leaves me no time to do any work on the backyard.
As such, the weeds have gotten worse and I am, sadly, starting all over again. *sigh* On top of it all, the stupid fox tails (little wheat-like weeds that have bur-like seeds) hurt our dog, Zedd. One of those nasty little seeds got caught between his toes and burred its way up inside his foot! We had to bring him into the vet for surgery and the poor darlin’ couldn’t go outside and play for almost two weeks.
So, sorry I don’t have any experimental updates or new photos of my progressing yard. Still dreaming, though. We hope to find sometime this weekend to tackle the weeds once and for all and start with some landscaping.
Otherwise, I hope you all are doing well.
