Well, I’ll ease back into this blogging thing with our happy news. It looks like another sweet little person will join our family this spring. We are excited, but said sweet little person has sure been making life miserable for me the past couple months! Hence the lousy blogging. I just have to thank those of you who have stuck around in spite of unsubstantial to nonexistent posting…I’m beginning to see light at the end of the tunnel, but most of the past weeks have been spent on the couch. The spirit is nesting, but the body is really rebellious!
I still have a lot of catching up to do, so I don’t plan to post as often as I was, at least until I get a handle on my sadly neglected house and family. However, I have a few partly finished posts and plenty of ideas, so I will be around.
If you have been waiting to hear from me, please be patient. Or I should say thank you for being so patient. I have a few things to put in the mail and some emails to write which should hopefully be out in the next day or so. I am behind on absolutely everything.
As for other news from here, there isn’t a lot going on. The weather has finally cooled to something like bearable (under 90). I have always loved fall (or as I say we have here, “fall”), but since living in wickedly hot climates, it’s that much more welcome. In spite of feeling so poorly, I’ve had the urge to cook and bake. This afternoon the kids and I made a peach crumble from summer peaches in the freezer, and also a banana pudding. Billy’s family seems to have a tradition of making multiple (not just more that one, but many, many) dishes, including dessert, and why not—his mother is truly the best cook I know. So I justify the baking splurge with the excuse of family tradition. Or “fall”. Or nesting. Or something. Perhaps I don’t really need a good excuse to make multiple desserts.
I’m off to fix supper…Maybe I’ll be able to muster a decent post tomorrow!
