Interesting article

I found this article on the website for Vision Forum. It's about the constant and worsening attacks on the Biblical family model, and in particular about the worsening attacks on Christian homeschoolers. As a homeschool grad and a newly married woman who plans to homeschool my own kids someday, it is of concern and interest.

The Return of the Child Catcher of Vulgaria

I'm back!

Yes, this is my third post with this title over the last two years. It's been a busy spring. The last personal post was back in November, when I told my readers that I was falling in love with a man named Huston. He proposed on December 13th, and we were wed at Grace Presbyterian Church in Alexandria, Louisiana on May 16, 2009.

He was laid off 10 days before the wedding and is still without a job. Next week will be one month. Prayers are coveted for a job for him, in God's timing and in the place where God wants us to be.

In the meantime, I've been settling into married life. I finally have my desk back, after being forced to take it apart after the hurricane last September. It felt so good to get it set up earlier this week! I'm once again in front of windows, with a lovely view of trees. This is my first time living in an apartment, but it's a very quiet complex and I like it so far. As much as one can like apartment living when all you've ever known is a house...

Anywho, the view is lovely and we're at the back of the complex and back off the highway. Looking out the windows here in the guest room gives me the feeling of still being secluded in the country. Which is my favorite thing in the whole world!

I'm still unpacking and arranging things, and just made cookies. Even Zoe is settling in nicely, though she is lonely and misses Aisling, the crazy orange tabby.

I haven't written anything of note in over 9 months now, but I'm hoping that will begin to change. I have my research books out again and characters are talking. It's hard to figure out my writing routine for this new season in my life, since my husband is always here right now. Not exactly conducive to me getting lost in 19th century Russia for hours on end.

So I hope to get back into the swing of things and back to my regular postings. I will continue the Friday Fact starting next week, and get back to Spotlight on Europe. There have been quite a few European historical releases in the last few months!
