Final reading of the book

This is just a teaser - an indiction of what you'll find in the book.

In a busy week full of reading and workshops, today I am totally focused on finishing the final reading my book before it goes to the printer. I am so happy with what I have here - the book with photos and graphics - fully presented as you will see it when it's published (next March). So please bear with me, I'll be back here with you tomorrow.

  28. Newsue, having Rhonda's book in our homes will be liking inviting the neighbour next door over for tea (no tea bags of course!}. March isn't actually all that far away (7 months)...think how quickly little Jamie has grown & isn't it about the same length of time?

  41. Congratulations Rhonda, I´m a newish follower of your blog, and I can see myself going over a lot of your older posts, as there is a lot to be learned. As I grow older I have realized that we all need to be more "green" and live in a more sustainable way. Look forward to your book.

  42. Best book-realising wishes from here too :)

  43. I would love to be able to buy your book in the USA. Can you post the email for Penguin Publishing so I can add my request to their list? Hopefully when they see the interest, they will make it available here.

    Congratulations Rhonda!

  44. Oh Rhonda...March seems so far away! Happy reading and I can't wait to buy your special book! Hanno and your family must be so proud.

  45. Rhonda, so exciting....I have been an avid reader of your blog for a while now and relish every post. I lost both my Mother and Grandmother quite young - too young to have learned any of their skills, my Grandmothers in particular. I didn't realise growing up that not everyone made their own sausages, smoked their own salami and gathered the items for dinner from their backyard. Now in honour of my Grandmother and her ways, I feel like I am learning her skills via pages such as yours. Thank you for bringing a little bit of her back to me each day. I miss her dearly. Good luck with your book, I can't wait to purchase one. Cheers, Whitney
