So much is happening just now that I’m not even sure what to write about today.
My brother is married. We celebrated last night.
I’m apparently learning how to write songs. My job is unpredictable.
It’s cold this morning. I need a jacket.
My book is in the final stages of preparation. It will be hitting Amazon so, so soon. Like, in the next couple of weeks.
Since there is so much going on, things I can talk about and things I can’t, I am going to talk about something completely unrelated to anything else that is currently happening in my life. Which is . . .
Baby Groot had a growth spurt!
Isn’t he cute?
He’s nearly two years old now, and growing so fast I can hardly believe it. Since I now have three trees growing inside my house, I am currently trying to decide whether or not to collect more acorns this fall.
I mean, a girl can only have so many trees growing in her house before people begin to question her sanity.
Maybe I’ll just bring one home. I’ve changed workplaces since last year around this time, and while the trees aren’t quite the same outside, I have managed to find several different types of oaks that have very promising acorns. They’re not ready yet, but I’ve got my eye on them. It can’t be too much longer.
And yes, in case you’re wondering, this is my hobby. I grow trees.
It’s a little weird, I agree.
Especially since they grow SO SLOWLY. Baby Groot isn’t even two feet tall yet. It’ll be at least another five years before he’s big enough to plant outside.
But, when he is, we’ll have oak trees growing on our property. Which will be all kinds of fun, right? And I’m used to long term projects and waiting for seemingly static pieces of my life to move forward.
After all, I’m a writer. It’s what we do.
Drop a hello for Baby Groot, and tell me what you’ve been up to this week! I’d love to hear from you!

HAI BABY GROOT!!! What are your other trees names?
I really like the mental image of you carefully watching acorns on the trees near your work and deciding which ones you want. It’s a good hobby. I’m also pretty sure you have forest nymph blood running through your veins.

I haven’t named them yet. But yes, that mental picture is exactly right. I do it on my walk every day at lunch. I’d like to think there is some forest nymph in there somewhere. 😊
