It’s going down to 50 degrees tonight! What? Last night I used two fans – what happened?
Thank you for all the birthday cards! The Fourth of July always interferes with my cards – haha! Today I got a stack of them – thank you!
I’ve been fielding emails, texts and comments about the Oh, Susannah! book and I ordered more today. Thank you for your interest in my 75th birthday gift to myself. It’s been so fun! Becky and I are working on adding her singing Oh, Susannah! to my Facebook post but we’re not quite there yet.
I did post the cover on Instagram under marybetherington with singing by James Taylor and it adds a lot.
I planned to make valances for 20 windows this summer and I haven’t even started! Remember the gray long haired cat who belonged to my neighbor and I took in? Her name is FluffyBun. Well, she has disappeared – maybe just hiding out in the grove? I hope she’ll show up again. I’m worried.
And then I have another gray kitten in the quilt shop – her name is Lucy. She was dumped at my neighbor’s house and her dogs terrified the poor thing so she called me. This little stinker is up for adoption – when I find her as well although she’s in the quilt shop. I see evidence every morning – fabric knocked off shelves, things disturbed but she is hiding so well I can’t find her. I had her in a secure kennel – at least I thought it was secure. She climbed up the wire wall and wiggled under the fluorescent bulbs to get out!
See that space underneath the bulbs? Yup, that’s how she got out. Unbelievable. When I know I have someone who will adopt her I’ll take away the food and use a live trap. It’s my only solution, don’t you think?
I know you’re wondering “what was she thinking?” I don’t know what I was thinking – I assumed she couldn’t get out of the kennel. Sigh.
Rick’s getting along fine but it’s slow, so slow. I want to do everything in my life FAST! He has permission to drive tomorrow but really? How would he get out of the car, grab his walker, open doors? Not going to happen.
So here’s the Oh, Susannah! ordering info again.
If ordering by mail, price is $20 PPD. I’d appreciate an address label. cash or check only. No credit cards, no Venmo. I’m not in business here – I’m just making a simple children’s book available literally at my cost plus tax. I’ll bet your grandchildren would enjoy it!
Book is available at Junkin Gal in Garner for $15 – no postage involved.
This has been a labor of love – love that I experienced with Susannah and it might possibly be the most fun I’ve ever had in my life. Raising this 1.9# baby goat was my whole life for many months. I loved it!
I have books on hand and will try to fill orders promptly. Just seeing her picture on the front cover thrills me!
