I hope you are enjoying spring (or fall?) right now. Hopefully, when you read this, I’ll be in the garden, the woods, the pasture or the kitchen. I’m taking the rest of May off to recharge my batteries. The book tour for The Education of Will was a time I will never forget, full of inspiration and passion and commitment and love. I am overwhelmed with gratitude about the reception of the book–thank you from the bottom of my heart to all of you who have responded to my memoir with such grace and support.
I find, however, that I am spent. Taking my own advice (always the hardest advice to take, yes?), I will be recharging my batteries for the rest of May. I’ll still read and post your comments, and cherish them as always, but please forgive me for only commenting on occasion until I come back in early June. My plan was to hike for hours with the dogs, work Maggie every day to take our sheep herding skills to another level, and garden garden garden. An injured knee has changed my plans (right after Maggie recovered from her three months off because of her injured knee) , but I’ll still enjoy the time and space to savor the things I love.
I have written blogs through early June to keep up the conversation, so I’m not leaving you, just staying off line as much as I can manage, and reveling in spring in the green hills of Wisconsin.
MEANWHILE, back on the farm: Speaking of spring, it’s busting out all over.
Maggie is free! I may be limping around now, but so far (paws crossed please!), Maggie’s recovery is going great. She’s finally allowed to play full bore with Willie, although still not for very long. Is there anything that makes me happier than watching dogs play together joyfully?
