appy blogging to all of you doing the Blogging from A to Z Challenge!
I think this is Hodge Podge No. 11.
I collated the previous 10 hodge podge posts, and I'm pretty sure I haven't posted any others since.
Round 2 of A Round of Words in 80 Days started on 6 April! My main goal this round is to do CampNaNo -- and to keep writing (or editing) afterwards)! I may also try submitting Druid's Moon somewhere once again...
The Decorah eagles webcams are back on the Raptor Resource page!
RIP Jack Whyte

I first found out through the Editors' Association of Earth group.
Here is something I shared last spring on a group page a friend started on the pandemic:
I'm not very good about keeping a coherent narrative together, but I felt very blessed by something that happened this weekend. This us how I shared it on author Beverly Cleary's wall: Thinking of the importance of art and telling stories, especially as one of my concerns during lockdown (while working from home with a 5 and a half-year-old and a 17-month-old) was not having enough reading time for myself and, suddenly (I can't remember what led me to bring them up), my daughter and I are reading the Ramona books! I read some of it out loud and she skips ahead and reads more in bed. And I get to reread them for the umpteenth time, which is exactly the comfort reading I needed at this time.
Amanda Palmer recently posted a calendar called Did This Year Actually Happen?
I was inspired to create my own! Some of them are good things!
My latest knitting project! My favourite blanket pattern.
