What can I say? It's been a busy couple of months, and as I'm essentially only posting here for my own amusement, it just hasn't made the top of the priority list.

(Yes, I know: if I posted more often, I might have more of an audience. The irony is not lost on me.)

Anyhow, the journal isn't the only thing that has suffered recently. My garden got into a truly appalling state of weeds and overgrown bits, from which I am still digging out. Thanks to a decent weather weekend, and with assistance from [livejournal.com profile] fisherbear and MamaBear, I finally have one veggie bed mostly planted, another weeded out and turned over, and the big flowerbed weeded and reseeded (and planted with six dahlia tubers, with hopes that I might actually succeed with dahlias for a change. I'm not holding my breath though), and the herb beds and walkways trimmed back, roses propped up, etcetera. But the back veggie garden is still more than half a weed pile (good spring forage for native pollinators, mind), and while my three side veggie beds are producing their first harvests (radishes, yum! baby spinach! baby lettuces!), they *desperately* need a good 3-4 inches of compost added to the tops.

On the plus side, I finally managed to synopsize the novel, and have the info I need for various submissions, plus I've made some progress on other stories, so there's that. And fisherbear and I went on a lovely trip, our first vacation away together since our tenth anniversary. That was great.

Mostly, it's just a really, really busy spring. And I really could use a week or two to concentrate entirely on my own stuff. In other words, it's pretty much business as usual!

Are you going to be free to meet up when I'm in town (5/24-6/7, but the first five days mostly belong to Master Chen.)
