This is the title of a bulletin board I used to put up every year in my library when I was a teacher-librarian in London, Ontario schools. You can tell it was a time-saver idea as part of it could be used later for Spring into April! In our uncertain spring climate here, milder weather came late rather than early, so it was best to be prepared.
I am thinking of this because I just found out I am going to England in a few days to visit family. I was told on the phone there are daffodils to be seen there already. I am looking out at snow in Ontario but who knows by the time I return home in mid March? Our weather has been so changeable this winter.
The good part about this is that it is grand weather for hunkering down and writing. I have two projects on the go and a third waiting in the wings. It’s s first time for me to divide my writing focus between a novella for the Seven Days series (Seven Days With Jillian), and a lovely return to an Anna story set in Oban. (No final title yet. Suggestions welcomed).
So I am packing my bag and filling my case with stories to tell at my great-nephews’ pre-school on March 11 as well as another chapter in the e book I am writing for the boys called Two Little Monkeys….and yes, they are! The monkey theme is one that has now transferred from their mother’s childhood to theirs and I have been privileged to see it all.
Despite the huge space of land and sea between us, family connections are so important. I know many of you feel the same. This is a theme that runs through Prime Time’s final novel, The Seas Between Us, and continues for me to this day.
