Been Awhile . . .

It's been awhile, huh?

I've been so busy I've barely been able to think.   Except yesterday, I took time to think yesterday, and I thought 'Hey, I have a blog, don't I?'

Then I came here to visit you all. :)

I've been making cockades, knitting, sewing other things, working on a fence, taking my grandfather places, and working on my book.

You know. Like my last post. Same old same old. ;)

 I'm very happy with my same old same old, don't get me wrong! I love it.  I just don't have much time to blog. :)

I've written 30,000 words on VE   and . . . deleted 26,000. Ouch.

I've made 40 or more cockades

Knitted about 10 1/2 scarves  and listed some of them for sale in my shop.

Helped my sister and father put up about 280 feet of fencing, which included digging a 280 foot long trench to bury the fencing 6 inches deep.  (Wire stock fence 2x4 holes).

And Taking my grandfather various places for various tests that come with being 83 years old.

Today I am back to work on cockades - have to get 6 or 7 shipped out today along with a hat. I hope more orders come in soon, though, because, believe it or not, 6 or 7 cockades isn't that many. ;)

And I need to prepare for the upcoming Florida Christian Writer's Conference. It's happening next month (But we leave on the 24th of this month), and I'm teaching a class there!

Hope you all are in excellent health and will continue  reading despite my  absences. :)


  1. Don't worry, I'm still here! :)
    Hey, that's the same kind of scarf I'm making! I'm only on my second one, and both are going to be presents for friends. I like the colors of yarn you used.


  2. I'm not going anywhere! :D

    26,000...? Ouch. And I thought deleting 2,500 words was painful! I'm looking forward to when VE will come out, though, and I'm sure the pain will be worth it.

  3. Hi Amanda,

    My name is Jeremiah, from LIFE SENTENCE Publishing in Abbotsford Wisconsin. We have a small base of bloggers who review books for us, and after a few months of tweaking how our blog tours are run, we’re now ready to take it to the next level.

    If you’re interested in joining our blog tours, we’ll send you a monthly email featuring our upcoming blog tours (see sample: If you like any or all of the titles, you simply request the books via a signup form on our website (

    You’ll receive the book in a week or less, read it (of course : ), write your blog post about the book, and add a link to the book’s blog tour page.

    Note: We do occasional fun things such as coffee gift card giveaways to keep everyone caffeinated and to drive traffic to our blog tour pages.

    If you’d like to join us on our blog tours, you can subscribe to the monthly featured-titles email here:

    In Christ,
