Cue the interlude music

I am almost finished with the grading, but I'll confess I took a little break from it today to spruce up the garden a tad. The manager for the South Plains Food Bank's GRUB farm was coming over to check out a chipper/shredder (seen below next to a pile of my neighbors' leaves) I am sort of donating to them and I wanted the garden to look its best. (Well, as best it can look in the dead of winter.) The chipper/shredder "donation" thing is all a bit complicated, but I'll explain it in an upcoming post. I promise that it will be a heartwarming-ish story, as befitting the season of giving.


In the meantime, I am knackered tonight, so I think I'll put the red pen aside and take up some light reading in the form of a book called, The Great Plains During World War II.

Ciao.

  2. The chipper-shredder donation story is intriguing, and I'm looking forward to more news on COWS. I am in the midst of revising my own fiction project (which is not called COWS!) but had to put it aside to tend to my mom and dad. It's a transition time in my family as my mom slips away, at a transition time in the year. Life continues to be.. well, much too full of learning experiences. I need a break! Happy grading, and writing when you get to that. May your holidays be restorative and full of joy...
