Second draft done!

Collar and index

Despite playing hookie part of the day yesterday to nurse the stray dog back to health, I still managed to finish the second draft of Weekend Homesteader.  A red letter day!

Stray dogThere's still plenty of work to be done before I can wash my hands of the project.  But I sent the draft off to two dutiful readers.  While they babysit...ahem, edit...the manuscript, I can take a few days "off" to reenter the real world.

I don't want to get too excited about the farm since I'll be back in book mode for at least another week once I get the editorial suggestions.  But maybe we can play with firewood?  Weed a few fruit trees?  I can't wait!

Our chicken waterer keeps the flock healthy even when I go into book mode and forget about them for days on end.
