    I’m moving.
    Not out but up.
    To be more exact, I’m moving up one flight of stairs.
    Our church’s growing children’s ministry needs the space where my second study is located, so I’m giving that room to them. How can you turn down children?
    But this is an enormous task, for I have books, many books.
    If my books were all e-books, or on a computer, this would be a cinch: I’d just carry that little reading device upstairs to my new hideaway.

  • I am planting a fall garden for sure this year. The current one is a flop so it is time to start over. The challenge with a fall garden is getting seed and seedlings to germinate and grow during the heat of the end of summer. If temperatures moderate we have a better chance at success. Planting beds are ready since the potatoes have been harvested (and the rotten onions removed.) All the debris has been removed and the soil has been prepared with additional compost (remember that every chance you have to add compost do so because it will improve your soil thus improving the crop.)
