Spring is upon us and I can’t say that I’m entirely happy. I like warm weather, but it increases my workload. I’m going to have to start on the garden. There is a very small window where you can poison the iris borers and if you don’t, you end up with them everywhere. If you’re an iris grower, that is. And I am. I have hundreds of them.

I’m working at the hospital this week, so I’m not working in the storage area, but I have boxes and boxes of stuff in my living room and kitchen to put away and clean. It’s really slowing down my writing to a crawl. I kept trying to think of new ways to make writing time. So don’t be surprised if I’m late with my blog. It’s going to be challenging to say the least.

My to-do list has blossomed like my weeds. I’m trying to get a few things off it each day after work and call this success and progress. Today I managed to call the vet about my last elderly cat because they haven’t reported her lab results to me. I think she won’t be with us much longer. Still waiting to her back. The two younger cats are fighting again. The big one picks on the little one and chases her off the bed at night. Cats.

I’m hoping to get back to my writing group next month and to read. I’ve written several chapters since I was there last. But I’m concerned I’m falling behind my schedule to have this book finished in early fall. It’s disappointing but work in the yard and house has to be done, too. The storage area is taking longer and turning into a bigger deal than I planned. I just have to be patient and keep moving forward.

When I tried to write, I discovered I needed to read more of Lincoln’s writings to get more of the sound of his voice in my head. So that is what I did today. His work is available online under the Guttenberg Project. Sorry I don’t have more exciting news to deliver. Life has me by the tail.
