Rain and Leaves are Falling! Are you Glad?

Hi blog friends!

It’s been awhile! Sorry about that–I took the summer off to work on a book project that I can’t wait to tell you about. The sequel to Sophie’s Quest, Sophie Topfeather, Superstar! is also ALMOST ready to announce! The cover will be released soon (yes, art by the same, wonderful, Maggie Kneen!!), and then the book, with all the balloons and fanfare and event invitations it requires. STAY TUNED!

In the meantime, the rain is back in Seattle, and I noticed leaves changing colors and blowing in the wind when I went grocery shopping this morning.

I always feel excited about school starting up and seeing all the kids and my colleagues again, AND I always wish I could make summer last just one more day. How are you feeling about the change of season?

My pastor (Pastor Allison) recently had some fascinating things to say about the end of summer and why we might be secretly glad that the rain has returned. It was great, and I thought you might like it, too!

Enjoy, and let me know your thoughts!

I can’t promise regular blogging quite yet with final revisions, etc. in the near future, but hopefully, soon. In the meantime, God bless!
