The gist of things here in my hometown, set within the arcs of things in the wider world, all from my uniquely biased point of view. Feel free to extend the horizons with your comments.
Hi Laura...I'm reading a book right now that made me think of you.It's by one of my favorite writers, David James Duncan.The title is God Laughs & Plays.I hope all is well with you and yours.~LOVE & PEACE~
Thanks Jim - all is well, although a little hectic. We made an error in deciding that I should take a contract this summer, to do assessments of the health of wildlife habitat on farmland in the Lower Souris Watershed (east and south of here, as far as the Manitoba and U.S. borders). (There is a story about the overall project here.)The contract seriously underestimated the time required to deliver the results, so I am working seven days a week, except on days that were already formally committed somewhere else, and taking almost no "home and family time" at all. I have barely touched my garden (but it is still feeding us remarkably well) and I am not working on our house renovations at all. Quite frustrating. But fortunately one of our prior commitments was the Kenosee Lake Kitchen Party. The whole family went, and although I took piano classes, I treated the time as a holiday. It was great fun as usual, and I just got home feeling much refreshed. I got a special treat in the final concert, where each fiddle class presents some songs they have learned, and some piano and guitar students are assigned to accompany each class. Not only did I get to accompany James's fiddle class, but Ruth's beginner guitar class was also assigned to play with his group, so all three of us got to perform together.
