    Congrats, I’m still on your first book, but I guess I have time to finish it before your others are available to buy. I’m enjoying it.

    Congratulations, Sharon:) Hoping for great success for you. Can’t wait to read it here too. (did that sentence make any sense?)

    How wonderful!

    Whoohoo! huzzah! yayy!

    I just got “Depletion and Abundance” from the library. I keep reading bits of it out loud to Mr. Nettle and wishing that it wasn’t a library book so I could underline things. I think I can get my own copy next month, so I can really beat it up.

    Excellent! Another thing to check off your list.

    Now that you’re done with that, we can all look forward to more posts. Hurrah!

    Hey, the reruns were okay but I check in every morning to see what’s new.

    Cut yourself some slack this evening and enjoy your new found liberty! Such as it is…

    Yeah!!!! Congrats!!!! I just finished _Depletion and Abundance_ yesterday. (Well, took me a couple of days of reading through the tips & the bibliography, otherwise I would have finished days ago, but I got started into a novel as soon as I finished the body of your book.)

    Looking forward to reading these next 2 books of yours as well!!!

    Hooray and congratulations! Break out the chocolate and celebrate!

  12. Abbieon 09 Jan 2023 at 9:06 pm

    Congratulations! I’m excited to read it! Enjoy your weekend!

  13. sacon 09 Jan 2023 at 10:23 pm

    Congratulations Sharon! I, too, have finished Depletion and Abundance and added to a reading list for several blogs I visit. Looking forward to the next book and I hope you are taking some much needed time off!

    Enjoy that life for awhile. Build some lego robots with your kids.

    I just preordered it last week, and am really looking forward to it; I read you first one for the second time this month.

  16. Carmenon 10 Jan 2023 at 3:43 am

    I’ll be most interested to read it.

  17. Chris Haaseon 10 Jan 2023 at 7:36 am

    Much awesomeness! To bad I read ‘Cory Doctorow: Writing in the age of distraction’ AFTER you got your book done :-(

    Very helpful and humor:

    Congratulations Sharon!

    Congratulations! What a wonderful feeling that must be!

  20. BlissfulBeeon 10 Jan 2023 at 10:43 am

    Woo-hoo - Congrats!

  21. Bobbion 10 Jan 2023 at 11:00 am

    Mazel tov! I love your blog and have to see if my library has your book.

  22. wildfloweron 10 Jan 2023 at 11:25 am

    I know the feeling. Congrats!

  23. Greenpaon 10 Jan 2023 at 11:29 am

    I can feel the relief from here!

    Cool. Now- what I want is a good detailed description of your celebration.

    What do you do to celebrate such a major event? Inquiring minds (ok, nosey) want to know!

  24. KatJon 10 Jan 2023 at 11:47 am

    Hooray!! Can’t wait to read it. Honestly, I feel as if I have accomplished great things if I can get my regular housework done, so I am very impressed that you managed to write it with the amount of distractions that you would have. (I have four kids, too, although three of them are adults now. But I remember the days. . .) Kudos to Eric, too, for supporting you in your work. Depletion and Abundance has been such a source of information and inspiration (once I got over the heartsinking realization that you were right).

  25. AngieCon 10 Jan 2023 at 12:06 pm

    I can hear that sigh of relief clear across The Pond! Well done; I take my hat off to you for getting it done with all the distractions of the holiday period, not to mention everyday family & farming life. And I look forward to reading it!

  26. Michelleon 10 Jan 2023 at 12:55 pm

    Hurray! Hurray!

    I’ve only ever finished term papers and an honors thesis… and those were “just” for grades. This is for CHANGE - and for dough, of course - SO cool!

  27. Grandma Mision 10 Jan 2023 at 1:34 pm

    Brava!!!!! I’m so looking forward to reading the next book, too.
    I know you have the third one waiting in the wings… but I hope you feel and enjoy the pressure release and let off the steam in fun ways.
    You’re the best Sharon, I truly love to check in here every few days or so and see what you’re up to.

  28. Shelleyon 10 Jan 2023 at 2:20 pm

    Congratulations Sharon. YOu have much to be proud of. You have accomplished an amazing thing…something that will have an impact far greater than you will ever know.

  29. Joannaon 10 Jan 2023 at 4:58 pm


    I was thrilled recently to receive your first book through paperbackswap.com - now I’m going to need to post another wish list item :) One of the mom’s boards I am on will be starting a discussion thread on Depletion and Abundance shortly. I am really excited that people are beginning to get it.

  30. The Screaming Sardineon 11 Jan 2023 at 12:29 am

    Yay! Congrats, Sharon!

  31. Amy L.on 11 Jan 2023 at 11:56 pm

    A side thought entirely - interesting that you type “G-d” but you write all of Hallelujah (Praise “Jah” the short/poetic form of Jehovah).

  32. Sharonon 12 Jan 2023 at 7:38 am

    Thanks everyone.

    Greenpa, mostly what I did to celebrate was laundry, letting Eric sleep in, dishes, more laundry, 50 games of Uno with Isaiah, 19 repetitions of “The Little Red Hen Makes a Pizza” with Asher, Ticklefights with Eli, Mulitiplication games with Simon, one birthday party, synagogue, one failed goat breeding trip and a trip to the Schenectady indoor farmer’s market. That is, I found my life awaiting me as though I’d never abandoned it ;-). Which is actually fine with me - Eric and I may have a celebratory outing at some point - my Mom is coming to visit early next week, so maybe then. But honesty, what I wanted was simply to go back to normal.

    Amy, true - and for some reason, Jews write out “Yahweh” altogether.

    Ok, on to getting ready for super cold weather - must chip ice and shovel snow off woodpile!


  33. nicoleon 12 Jan 2023 at 8:58 am

    BRAVO!!! Looking forward to reading this one too!
