Sometimes I feel like I live in a locker room, having two boys and one husband. Even our dogs are male! And our cat! I'm a girly kind of girl though I've never had a manicure and don't own a cell phone. But I love purses and shoes and Starbucks lattes and perfume and all the rest.
My husband recently told me I am a complete mystery to him. Maybe this is because he sees me staring at my computer screen for hours on end. Riding herd on a bunch of words is "mind-numbing" to him. He is all action. We live in the woods and he likes to pretend it is not the twenty-first century. He dreams of moving to Alaska and living in a remote cabin where they have to fly in your supplies a few times a year. He has relatives there but I notice they spend a lot of time down here in Washington.
Anyway, my husband's idea of fun is splitting cedar logs into fence rails by hand with an old fashioned maul and ax - for hours on end! And bicycling for miles on isolated logging roads with fishing gear slung over his back to his favorite fishing hole. Or climbing half a mountain to get firewood. We don't have tv reception/satellite so we have to get really creative to have fun.
I never would have believed I would publish a book, much less three of them, nor live in the woods of Washington with so many men. But God had a plan and it was so much better than anything I could have devised.
May He grant you your heart's desire, and fulfill all your purpose. Psalm 20:4
