I love the busyness of this summer.  It’s the good kind of busy. We’ve already had lots of fun and I plan on having a LOT more.

Today’s fun includes cleaning and Alisha’s first day of Orchestra camp.  She was so excited.  I can’t wait to hear all she learned about playing the violin today.  The cleaning is not too bad because I’m cleaning for a reason.  Some friends of ours are on their way through the area tonight, and they are coming to stay with us!  I rarely get to see them, and I’m so excited to get the chance to spend even a few hours with them. I’ve made a huge pot of chili, so whenever they get here dinner’s done.  Unfortunately my oven is not working (at all) and I can’t make them the caramel corn I had planned on, or the corn bread to go with the chili.   Trust me, rice krispie treats don’t even come close to comparing with the caramel corn, but those can be made on the stove.

I have so many things I want to post.  Stories and pictures of our summer so far.  The problem is finding the time to do it.  I’m not real great about being “in” the moment, but apparently I’m getting better at it.  I’ve spent way less time on the computer the past few weeks than I have in a long time.  I’ve been doing a lot of swimming (and burning…hopefully turning to tan 😉  I just needed a break and figured I’d check in with my blogging friends.

Thanks for the welcome back!  You, my faithful readers and commenters, are awesome.


Let the Words Begin

And so…it begins again.  I knew I’d be back to blogging sooner or later.  Do you like my new place?  I’m not completely set up yet.   I wish I had the smarts to actually make this blog look like I want it to, but I don’t.  I’ve even watched the instructional video and read the ‘how to’ of wordpress, but it’s still Greek to me.  For now, this is as good as it gets.

Mostly I just needed to get some words out!  It’s been a busy, fun summer so far.  I look forward to sharing it with you.  If any of you are proficient in wordpress, I’d love some help!   I even thought of changing the name, but couldn’t bring myself to do it.  I’ll keep that idea filed away for some other time 😉

For now, it’s back to figuring out how to add some things and not crash the whole internet. Wish me luck!
