I am coming down the homestretch with Of Time and Magic, Book Four in my Great Library Series. Everything is ready for the cover, which I should be able to share with you in mid-July. So exciting!
But I’m just plain worn out, both from book work and from all that’s going on in this country. I need some time off, a staycation of a couple of weeks, where I read, nibble on chocolate, and putter around the house and garden. And that’s just what I’m going to do.
Speaking of the garden…here are a few photos from our yard at the edge of the woods.
See you in mid-July.

I certainly sympathize with you. I think we are all worn out by what is happening around the country and yesterday was a very sad day.
Thanks so much. Heartbreaking what’s happening in this country.
Keep nibbling that chocolate, Laurie. Taking care of yourself is your #1 priority. We’ll all still be here for you!
Thanks, Jane! Will do.
We have some of those yellow flower in our garden too! Take a break, we’ll all be here when you’re back. Congratulations on the book!
Thanks so much!
I call them sundrops. Is that what you guys call them too?
Take care, stay safe and enjoy your break!
I’m totally with you on staying close to home and eating chocolate. Sounds like a good plan. Try to drop your cares and woes and bury them in the garden!
Lovely glimpses of a beautiful garden. Rest now and take care!
What’s happening in your country is indeed very sad, take time off and think about something else. Always a pleasure to see your garden.
Thanks, Susan! Horrible what’s happening here.
Enjoy your break. Great hummingbird photo!
I truly believe that chocolate is medicinal. Have a great rest. I look forward to the new cover design.
Thanks so much!
Have a great rest! Thank you for the hummer shot because I haven’t seen one this year.
Thanks, Judy! Lots of hummingbirds in our backyard.
Beautiful garden photographs Laurie 🌾🍃 Enjoy your break and the chocolate! 💜 xxx
Enjoy your renewal!
Enjoy your staycation!
I find your political situation very wearing (and alarming) and I am thousands of miles away. I am not surprised that it is causing you some stress.
What a time we are having in this country. Scary and discouraging.
I hope that things improve.
Hope you enjoy your break, at least as much as possible in these trying times!
Enjoy the time away from the news, Laurie. It is healthier.
Lovely photographs. Look after yourself X
Agree, a well deserved break away from home is much needed, am going away for a few days next week
Love the sunbirds/humming birds that visit your garden. Please give them my address
Dark times, indeed. Enjoy your break.
Love your hummingbird shot and enjoy your staycation!🙂
I’m proud of you for taking time off for rest and renewal. Your garden and your book will be balm for the soul.
Hugs to you Laurie. I am also just floored by the impositions of the people who are supposed to represent me. Am I mad, frightened, disgusted, shocked? Yes. all of these. Take a break. We all need to.
Enjoy your time off, Laurie! I’ve been toying with the same idea for a while now.
How kind of you to leave us with a hummingbird. I am worse than sorry about our combined political situations – what affects one country is rapidly tumbling on around the world – and the cruelty of too many of the people entrusted with the care of nations of people. But I will enjoy imagining your staycation with chocolate.
In envy you for your hummingbirds.
