Some of you may have noticed that I haven’t posted on my blog here since April. Well, it’s not because I’ve been on vacation. The opposite is true.

We put our house up for sale in order to serve a mission for the Mormon Church – and it sold in a day. Of course it took a month to finalize the deal. In the meantime, I was packing and cleaning, separating our things into piles – to keep – to throw away – for a yard sale – to give away. I was doing all this in between my job. Not the easiest of times.

By June 1, we were ready to serve our mission. Unfortunately, we didn’t get our call until this week. If you’re curious, we’re serving in St Louis, Missouri, at the employment resource center, and will start on July 22nd. We thought we would serve for six months, and were called to serve for a year. So, we’ll experience a cold winter this year. YIKES! And a muggy-hot rest of the summer. Double Yikes!!

 For the month of June, and part of July, we’ve been homeless. Not out on the street, but merely without a permanent home. We’ve had six-weeks of travelling around the USA visiting our adult children and a few other relatives in Illinois, Missouri, Oklahoma, and Idaho.

Part of the time we’ve had Internet, and part of the time we haven’t. Nevertheless, I was able to get my book, Farewell, My Denmark, finished, and it is now available in e-format through Smashwords, Kindle, and Amazon, and is also available as a paperback. YAY!
