She has risen


My sister Ann's tortoise had three babies. Even though she took great care of them, they are fragile creatures. Two months ago, she sadly buried the last one, Jag, in her yard.

Then today in her garden she saw a baby tortoise. She thought, "My God, my momma tortoise had another baby." When she went to pick it up she realized it was Jag! Apparently Jag had been only hibernating and is now ready to rejoin the living. Needless to say, Ann's overjoyed.

I've been working on my writing and wedding planning--plus we have a number of family visitors coming into town--so I'll be off the blog for a bit.

When I return, I'll post wedding pictures.

In the meantime, check out what I was writing about a year ago (in June, July and August 2007).
