I usually re-read all of Robin Pilcher and Rosamunde Pilcher's books every summer (they just seem like good pool-side reading). And I always have a non-fiction or two going at the same time, usually something to do with sustainability or global warming or travel. (It depends what's available at the library.) But at some point I really have to buckle down and do some writing too, I suppose! Thanks for the question! What books do you recommend?(less)

My husband's great-grandfather had a brother who disappeared in his mid 20s and was never heard of again...I've always wished we could solve that one. And there are questions surrounding the death of our former foster son years ago. There is some suspicion it might have been murder. But there's no way to prove it. So...the same question back to you. Are there mysteries in your life too? - Kristen(less)

The new FEDCO seed catalog has arrived, and that's it for the rest of my day

Nothing else is going to be accomplished. The new seed catalog for 2023 arrived in the mail today, I've dropped all plans, and I'm on the couch with a pen and a dream. Stuff I've never heard of. Plants I didn't think would grow in my area but apparently will. Old favourites and fond memories. Interesting stories of the first person to develop and grow a particular variety or strain. Things I can g
