I know that it has been quiet in Buckeyegirlie’s Corner. I’ve been really, really busy, with many things demanding my attention. Not the least of which is that I have been working hard on editing this book so that it can be printed in time for sale at our Anniversary Bash on August 24th.
The published book will not look the same. For one thing, we plan to publish in paperback, and I need to decide how many to run on the trial run — just to see if it actually sells or not. But beyond that, I am enjoying the editing even though it is taking lion’s share of my time.
It’s yard and garden time, too, and I am quite pleased with how the garden and flowers are growing. Even the house plants are doing well. When Daniel had his knee replaced, the women’s group at our church, known as Women in Christian Service, gave him a gorgeous plant. (I actually said that I thought that gift was one that I enjoyed as much as he did. And he loved it very much — far better than cut flowers.) It was on his bookshelf for most of those recuperating weeks, and if not there, then the middle of the kitchen table. We both thought the birds on the planter it was in was so appropriate for our house. It was just so cheery.
But it was crowded in that pot. For some time, I’ve been casting about for a different planter for it, but never found one that really satisfied me. Finally, yesterday, I found a pot that I thought I could live with, and I brought it home. Last night I repotted it. Daniel and I are so happy with the result. It seems to have grown over night. (I put the original pot beside it so that you can see the comparison. It is just so, so beautiful. Thanks, ladies. It is a reminder of our church family and how lovingly they care for us.

We are so blessed.
My heart gives grateful praise.
