Very, very good or very, very bad
April 19th, I lost my job. (Low)
I was given a severance package equal to 1 months pay. (High)
They withheld a HUGE chunk in taxes. (Low)
April 26th, I had a job interview (High)
April 29th. My phone was stolen (Low) ... suspended account and changed passwords on all apps on the phone. I lost all of my pictures on the phone. :^(
Today: April 30th. Bought a new phone (FRUSTRATED!) I am now setting up all the apps on my phone again. Most of them are working well. BUT for some reason, I can't get my Blogger app to set up on my phone. I'll figure it out sooner or later.
The weather is cold, rainy and over all gloomy.
We wasted the center part of the day running to St. Cloud because of the rain.
The dogs were home alone just over 3 hours. They behaved but were attached at the hip the rest of the day. That means NOTHING got done except taking naps and sitting on the couch with the dogs.
I guess if I need to pick one thing positive for the day (and this is stretching it): we had a relaxing afternoon once we got home from St. Cloud.
Please keep me in your prayers. I'll be riding this roller coaster for awhile.

I saw this rooster walk up to the pile of fresh cow manure and start picking out the partially digested grains.

They twisted my arm ....
Isaac and his friend stayed overnight Friday night so that they could dog sit today. I woke them up just after midnight so that they could watch the Northern Lights.

Generations of Secrets
I am well over halfway through the review before beginning to publish this series of books. I've been crying and laughing as I read the stories that I wrote and last edited in 2005.
I am so excited to share this series with you! The books are going to get published in rapid succession. My sister is working on the book covers for me.
I think that I'm driving Dale crazy because I'm having a difficult time putting the book down at night and going to bed. I hope when you read them, you feel the same. :^)

We know that you've been waiting and now it is official!

Last Saturday I was walking around the yard and I saw the crocus were up and blooming. they are often called snow crocus because they will come up and bloom even if there is snow on the ground.

I've been waking up pretty stuffy lately. Then as I walked through the woods I saw the cause. The trees are budding! It won't be long and they will be full of green leaves.
