My presence on the Isle has been conspicuously spotty over the last few weeks. I have not kept up with the "Had I But Known" guest series. The social networking venues (i.e. Twitter and Facebook) have not seen much of me lately. And, quite unmiraculously, the world has continued to turn. Your lives have rivered along down their paths with little interruption and with hardly a cursory thought of "I wonder what's happened to Anna" passing through your mind.
Well, for those that are interested, this is what I've been up to:
- I've finished up a short story project that I've been working on for 2 years.
- I've been researching my novel-in-progress.
- I've been working on my critical thesis for grad school.
- Most importantly (and I probably should have mentioned this first) I've been spending time with my kids.

And I hope that you all will do the same. Go catch some moments and savor them!
Happy Monday, all!!
Good for you, Anna. I have noticed your absence on the blog and missed you, but your beautiful little girl next to the maters (I'm so envious of them, by the way) will be eighteen before you blink your eyes. Get the goodies while you can.ReplyDelete
And THAT is an awesome fish! All of my many male offspring would be grinning like that, too. :)
If you lived closer, Danni, I'd gladly offer you some maters. We seem to have a surplus. (Our bell peppers, on the other hand, are pathetic). And it's nice to know I've been missed. I'll keep posting as often as I can, I'm just--as always--trying to find that balance: if I'm going to err, then I'd rather err on the side of my kids. I'll pass your compliment on to Jonathan--he's still beaming with delight. (You might be able to see his glow the whole way in OK.) Hope you and your crew are well, Danni! And thanks!Delete
