I'm here, I'm here. I really am.

What I've been up to:
  • on a Harry Potter marathon with Sam. He read book one ages ago but not the others. I announced I was going to read them all, and he took off along with me. We're having so much fun, though I do need to keep reminding him not to tell me any details! He's one book ahead of me. I've threatened to duct tape his mouth closed, with a slit for liquid nutrition.
  • observing Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. This has probably been my least angst-filled High Holy Days since I've had kids. Yay me!
  • writing an article for publication on a web-zine. For pay! More on that when it is published.
  • trying to renew my enthusiasm for my photo project. I have missed more days than I'd have liked, and find myself getting a little bored. But I've been pushing through this week and have had fun taking pictures. Now I just need to catch up on posting a month's worth of photos. Yikes!
  • planning holiday gift crafting, cooking new recipes, and getting ready for my sister and her family to visit in a few weeks. Can't wait to meet my new nephew, who is a butterball!

Thanks for the photos, especially that lake, tree and moss. I miss Florida lakes and trees SO much.

I am happy about your writing project!

I haven't finished all of the HP books. I decided I want to wait a bit -- like maybe another year -- and do them all together and sink into them.

Are you familiar with The Seeker's Guide to Harry Potter by Geo Trevarthen? I receive her newsletters on Celtic issues and have been very impressed by the depth of her ideas. So my plan is to have this book by my side as I read the novels in order.
