Ah, Friday! When you work a Monday – Friday job it gives you such a good feeling to see a Friday come around. I hope to use my weekend to work on my second book – if all goes well, it may be ready to buy for Christmas! Keep an eye open for “Suitcases, Schools and Survival”. For those who bought “The Girl with Nine Lives, this continues the saga of Stacy as a young adult entering her teaching career and travels.
In my first book, many people commented on the animal stories. While I was too busy fending off wolves to take time to snap a photo of them, we did occasionally get photos of the bears. Limpy, especially, seemed to enjoy posing for the camera as this photo shows. With my story of the twins – this is the little gal that stayed up in the tree watching her brother get spanked for disobeying Mama.

What a week! As a teacher on a Hutterite colony for grade 5-12, life is non-stop from 9:00-3:30. This coming Friday is the end of quarter, so report cards will be due. So that always makes one extra busy.
But I had 2 highlights in this week.
The first: I came home and stumbled over something on my step. When I picked it up and entered, I found out I was holding MY copy of my book! I felt like a mother receiving her first child. The awe and wonder of holding something I'd created and labored over for - yes, about nine months- well, that is quite the feeling.
The second: Last night the doorbell rang. I answered and a man stood there with a floral arrangement. I was sure he'd come to the wrong house, but he had the right name. Imagine my amazement when I saw that friends from the States had arranged these lovely roses to be delivered to celebrate this milestone in my life. In today's Covid restrictions, such a thoughtful, kind gesture means SO much! I never get flowers, so I'm still just smiling over it.
