Writing and Convalescing

It's been a while since I've posted, but I've been working hard to get three books ready for release in a few months, so I've let the blog slide a bit.

Funny story, though: After my last posting about getting out and enjoying nature, I was doing just that one night. And at the top of a beautiful mountain, three miles from the trailhead, I tripped and fell big time. I felt like Homer Simpson bouncing down the mountain. Luckily I didn't smack my head against a rock, but I did get all scratched up. Then near the bottom of the trail, I twisted my ankle!

Of course, as soon as I got home, all covered with dust and blood, my kids all busted up laughing. I didn't get much sympathy.

Then last month, I was on the same trail and messed up my hip somehow. After ignoring it for a month, I finally went to the doctor, who reminded me I'm not young anymore. He made me agree to stop goofing off until it heals.

So now the autumn weather is absolutely perfect, and I'm stuck at home sitting around. At least I'm forced to spend more time writing now!
