Just a Little Spiel

Well summer is almost upon us! I hope you're all enjoying being out of school and excited for the upcoming summer season? What have you all been up to? Got plans for this summer?

This past week has been extremely busy at work, we're prepping for CHERRIES!



Yay for cherries! About a week out. :) We also have been thinning a ton of apple trees, so yes, it's been busy. Oh, and while I'm thinking about it, here's a clearer picture of the fishies.

So far we've had a couple casualties (Bran, Sigmund, Pancake), so I got replacements (Olga, Rachel, Bran 2), and this week I lost Judge, Aileen and Olga. BUT, I renamed "Rachel" Aileen so there are still Mornellys. ;)

Also this happened at work:


Yes, you're seeing correctly. That's a dog up in a tree at my work. My boss's dog is convinced there is a porcupine in this tree and he climbed it. I had to get pictures!

Speaking of my bosses, please pray for one of them who is not doing well right now. He could really, really use prayer. <3

Finally, but not least, I have a new cover photo for the Mornelly page! Go check it out here: I-6: The Mornellys

Special thanks to Ana Mae for creating the new cover photo! I ADORE it! :D Also as a side update, Mornellys have not been edited last several weeks because my editor is on vacation. She'll be back soon, though, and promised to have it done by end of July. I should have some new illustrations to show off as well by then. ;) The release date is scheduled for November! I'll give you a day when I know how far we've gotten in editing. :D

I'm going to be very busy with cherries this upcoming week, but I'm coming up with new blogging ideas so stay tuned! I have a couple schemes up my sleeve that I want to try out, we'll see if it works out or not. ;)

God bless and hope you're all having a wonderful summer thus far!

  1. LOL noooo! Bran & friends! RIP.

    Those cherries look delicious! We've started planting a few things, but we haven't yet put on bird-repelling covers.. You can probably guess where I'm going with that lol.

    Also, tagged you for "The Rising Authors Tag"! :) Here's the post

      Yes, Yogi is a special dog. Strange, but special. And sweet. He's just... strange. ;) And thank you for praying, my boss is doing better and we're getting along okay, I've been helping extra at work and we're all tired, but things are getting better. :)

  6. One of our family's dogs climbs trees too. It's hilarious when he climbs so high that he can't figure out how to get down.

    1. HAHAHAH! You know what's weird, I think I had a dream about Christmas because you wrote this. XD I literally had a dream we were prepping for Christmas and I told my boss I thought it was too early to be selling Christmas trees. It was strange. ;)

      Cherries were wonderful and the season has ended. It's a quick season. :)

      Thanks for commenting, Rishona!
