#1 NYT bestselling author Linda Lael Miller

Afternoon blog

I got right into the book this morning, and I was busy all day long, so I’m just now sitting down to blog.

Someone asked about my new schedule: I work four days, and take three to refill the creative well, resting, reading, doing art work, cooking and, sometimes, playing slot machines.  :)

Three winners will be announced tomorrow, per the question, What’s your dream bulb?  (If that confuses you, scroll back a few entries to the blog about my tulip and daffodil bulbs. :))  Check in tomorrow, also, for a new question.

I ordered more seeds at lunch time–lettuce, zuchini, small spaghetti squash, and Swiss chard, to grow in my huge deck planter next spring.  Also, I couldn’t resist the peonies, and ordered two more plants.  Actually, I’d grow a FIELD full of them if I could figure out where the deer wouldn’t eat them.  And I’m sorely tempted to buy another big planter so I can complete my salad collection.  :)  Heirloom tomatoes are already in the plan, of course, because those are my absolute favorites.

My cousin Jim Lael, his daughter, Alisa, and granddaughter, Laci, are visiting from Virginia.  I can’t wait to see them–they are among my favorite relatives.  Too bad they weren’t around earlier, for the reunion.  Jim and his whole family are musical, and we could have had ourselves an even better time, stompin’ our feet to those Blue Grass tunes.

Leftovers for supper, and I’m making it an early night.  I really want to meet my goals again this week.  :)

More tomorrow.   Be well, be safe, and be kind.  There are a lot of hurting hearts hidden behind the words, “I’m fine”.

    My dream bulb would be a moving bulb. I’d love to give my family a better place to live ( I like Wyoming) and I pray daily that my dream will bloom big and bright someday.

      Debra, I was just in Wyoming after not having visited that part of the country for more than thirty years. It wouldn’t take much to get me to live there. Hope you get your wish. :)

    It always feels good when you can stick to a plan. Good for you!! Sounds like you’ve got next year’s garden well under control too. I’d have to plant lots of hyacinths, of all colors, to go with the tulips and daffodils. Hyacinths are so beautiful and they smell so great too! Love them! Keep up the good work.

    Left-overs for supper here, too. And not at all bad as they were from the dinner at our daughter’s yesterday…turkey, stuffing, sweet potatoes. :) Yes, she ‘s getting an early start.

    Glad the new schedule is working for you, Linda. Keep it up! We await that new book! :>)

    My dream bulb is dahlia. I have tried to grow them but they get stepped on, mowed over, or decapitated. I give up. :) We have a huge dahlia farm about 30 minutes away; so until my crazy boys grow up a bit, I’ll just visit them often :)

    Been working on my garden too. The cabbage, radishes, onions, spinach have all come up. Gotta work on how to keep the deer out of the garden. We had a good rain yesterday, so I’m hoping the other seeds will come up soon. Reading An Outlaws Christmas at the moment. So glad it’s about Sawyer!
