Spring Things

Well, okay, we’re almost out of spring and into summer, but that doesn’t rhyme.

‘Tis the season for gardening and outdoor projects, and I have a fun idea for you.  We had a geranium that was barely surviving because its pot didn’t have good drainage. My husband found a section of tree trunk with a hole in the center, added potting soil and the gloomy plant, and voila! Only a week later, we have a happy geranium in an interesting planter.

Spring is also the season for outdoor festivals of music, art, and books. Are there any where you live? Here in the Atlanta area, they’re sprouting like dandelions.

This Saturday, May 18, I’ll be signing books at Suwanee Arts in the Park. The festival hours are 11 to 6, but I’ll be there from 11 to 2. Other local authors include Creston Mapes (from 11 to 1, I believe), and Lindi Peterson and Haywood Smith, who will be there sometime in the afternoon. We’ll be in Booth 38, between the stage and Suwanee Dam Road.

In online goings-on, my friend Cindy Woodsmall invited me to write a guest post on her blog.  The topic: The Magical World of Books. We’re giving away a copy of Gone South there, so please visit Cindy’s blog and follow the easy instructions to enter the drawing. Cindy also has a fun collection of Amish recipes as well as links to her books and her schedule of appearances.

I can’t believe we’re halfway through May. The calendar brings back memories of digging into a new batch of curriculum catalogs to plan the next year of homeschooling even before the current one ended. Meanwhile, we’d be planting flowers and vegetables, and our two older kids would be immersed in the serious business of raising their 4-H pigs.

I’m glad to be out of the pig years, but as long as I have two brain cells to rub together, I will never be out of the book years.

    Congrats on the new book!

    Maybe you can help me out. I read a book recently that was along the same lines as your When Sparrows Fall. It was about a woman who started going to a new church where the pastor was spiritually abusive. She ended up being afraid that there were demons everywhere. She had two young daughters in the story. It was written in first person and the author was a woman–I thought it was Catherine Palmer but I can’t find any books along those lines that she wrote. (She wrote The Happy Room about a group of missionary kids.) Does any of this sound familiar to you?

    BTW, I read and post over at Wartburg Watch.

    Thanks, Tina! I’m glad you stopped by. I read the Wartburg Watch too, and once in a great while I’ll leave a comment there. It’s one of the blogs I discovered when I was writing and researching When Sparrows Fall. Spiritual abuse is still a big thing on my radar screen, probably because I’m still processing some of what I saw years ago.

    The book you mentioned doesn’t sound familiar to me, but I’ll try to find out. Let me know if you figure it out, okay? And I’ll let you know if I do. It sounds like a story I’d like to read.
