Oh, what a week it has been here at the ranch. Max and his sister couldn't have asked for a better spring break. Lots of sunshine had the wildflowers blooming - The fish biting -
The weather was perfect for taking walks in the woods.Down by the creek.
And out to the pasture where we discovered four new calves taking a nap together. Isn't that the cutest thing?
Max didn't spend any time in the woods, but he still did plenty of exploring. He loved the drums, also known as tables, on Grammy's deck.
However, a loud moo kind of startled him. Especially when we looked up to see at least half the herd rushing across the pasture at the front of the house.Do you remember that little guy I showed you last week? The one that had just been born? This is him now, with his mama bringing up the rear.
He even helped in the kitchen.
Max was ready to move on, though. There were adventures to be had and he wasn't about to let sissy drive the UTV without him.The riding mower appeared to be right up his alley, too.
With Grammy at his side, he whipped up some of her favorite peach cobbler. You can find that recipe here.But at the end of the day, a boy always has time for his dog.And, sometimes, even goes so far as to crash in the dog's bed.
Yes, it was a busy week here at the ranch. A fun week. One I wouldn't trade for the world. But now it's time to get back to work. There are books to write and, contrary to popular belief, they do not write themselves.
I am pleased to announce, that after a chaos filled year of surgery, moving and renovating, I am finally writing in earnest again, thanks to a new contract with Love Inspired Books. Best of all, I have a new office to do it in. A place where I can close the door and play with my imaginary friends, all while enjoying the view I've looked forward to for years.
Now it's your turn. Have you ever taken a sabbatical from your job, writing or otherwise? Were you eager to return to said job? How did you get back into the swing of things?
