A Birth Announcement

It’s that time of year—thank goodness

Actually, this is three birth announcements in one.

First, I wrote the last word in the last chapter of my novel, The Road Unsalted, this afternoon at 12:45.

I was hoping to have the epilogue done as well but after writing 30 pages by hand, my arms were killing me!! (Carpal shoulder that radiates.)

Second, we have the privilege of hosting a pair of Canada geese that like our patch of the rive for raising young. Yesterday, they took their newborns (we think there are five) out for their initial outing.

And third, somewhere there’s a baby robin who left this bit of egg shell behind. Isn’t that the most wonderful shade of blue?

Spring.

Birth.

Green and blue and yellow.

Nice time of year.
