My dear friends - I am still in South Louisiana! I hope you will forgive me for not visiting as I am on my computer only a few minutes in the morning.
As well, I hope to have some quiet time so I can look for the winner of the two books! I apologize that I have not done that right away as I usually have done with the other 'contests.'
My son will be heading back to Oregon early tomorrrow morning, so I've been spending a lot of time with his and....his New Fiance! Yes! He has asked his gf to marry him - or did I tell you all that? I'm so happy for them. In between visiting with my son and fiance; I am trying to see all my friends, too -- so, I am here there and yonder.
I'm also quite worried about my mother's husband - he's a lovely man and I adore him and he's ill right now. Please keep him in your thoughts...
The photo above is the house I lived in while I was in Baton Rouge before I moved back to the mountains. I loved that cottage - real wood floors, a nice sunroom where I did most all my writing and where Virginia Kate first took her first forms. We always were sad that the previous owners had cut down a big oak tree in the front yard - we had plans to plant another tree, but never did get to it. In the back were an oak tree, a magnolia tree, Louisiana Iris, and on the side were Camelias; there were lagustrums, and in the front bed were these full lush beautiful yellow flowers that I've forgotten the name of, but they are dug out of the bed - the new owner must not have known what they were. But, I would not go back to that house or to So. La. - because the mountains are Home.
I'll return soon - *muwah*
