Spring Weather in Ohio and Multiple Personality Disorder

   And while one barn cat is waiting for a good petting, the other is lurking on the rooftop wanting to jump on me as I walk by.  When I catch him at it, he acts unconcerned, like, no, ma’am, I was not just going to launch myself  at you from the garage roof and scare you out of ten years’ growth…Ah well.  I think even they’re going stir crazy from all us being home all the time. This week it has rained, snowed, sleeted, and been sunny-all on the wrong days.  The days I am ensconced in my office, it’s 72′ and sunny.  The days I am home and could actually do something outside, it has sleeted, snowed, iceballs too small to be called hail but they smart when you’re walking in from the field, windy and cold.  It may even frost tonight! And the poms ran off on their walk-it was pretty that day so I let them run in the field; they found a hole in the fence and bang-they were three houses down and had to be brought home.  In spite of the crazy, there have been accomplishments.  The second book of the Quilting mystery series ought to be out next week as long as the editor doesn’t go crazy.  The cover is neat and the action is non-stop.  You’ll find out who got murdered in the pulpit, for instance, and if Brad and Casey do make it to the wedding.  And the Mutant series is up to 20,000 words and more coming easily.  The book on Our Battle with Fear is at 10,000 words. And this weekend is Easter so there is chocolate coming which is good and just in time for us all to avoid meltdowns-and also nice is the reason for it all, our Lord’s resurrection.    I hope you are safely sheltering in place and finding time to read and get away from all the horrible news we’ve gotten this spring…from Indian reservations being absconded with, to folks dying of Covid; to investigations and arguments and who knows what all, earthquakes and storms, it’s been rough.  The boys and I planted 25 trees in the lower field-I enjoyed that.  for the most part, we have been inside.  It’s hard when we have to go into town-it’s feels almost like I’m in a communist country-shelves are bare of the oddest things-like grape soda?  And baking powder?  Anyway, take care of you and yours and I shall be announcing shortly how you can get your hands on the next book…and let it take you away. here’s the new cover: notice the dog keeps getting bigger?   Same little town, same couple and dog gets bigger…that’s why it’s a mystery.
