The New Person


Yesterday we welcomed Kellen Richard Wilma into our family. He is the first of the next generation of our family and is beautiful and healthy. He is the first grandchild for all the grandparents and we are all simply thrilled.

Island Vacation


In order to keep up my blogging I am posting from Freeland on Holmes Harbor on Whidbey Island. We have a home here and are spending the week doing as little as possible. The kitchen here looks out onto the beach and the water and we got some rain last night, our first in a couple of months. It's the first time I've ever seen the area under some kind of weather. Usually we have had sunny skies and although the rain keeps us inside, it's a nice break.
I will spend my time working on my novel, reading history (Middle East this time), watching DVDs, and being a good island neighbor.
