What?! Do I really think I can just waltz right back in here just as easily as that without an explanation? Do I? DO I?!
Um...I've been, you know...busy!
There have been plants
Prairie smoke in the front yard.
and Easter egg hunts;
Logan searches high and low. Well...OK. Just low.
cleaning up the garden and growing tiny plants from seed;
Chamomile, calendula, TX sage, cardinal climber, parsley, and zinnias.
Tomatoes, bell peppers, cucumbers, basil, thyme and an itsy bitsy heliotrope.
getting my house painted,
and buying a new car and selling off my old one.
Well, OK, that's a minivan, but kind of a cool one. Caitlin now has her very own row and the twins can no longer punch her in the face. Ahhh! The soothing sounds of a little less whining!
There have also been cupcakes,
Coconut cupcake with coconut cream cheese frosting and toasted coconut flakes. Is it good? Ohhhhh yeahhhhh!
because anniversaries and birthdays are coming up and I need to test out some recipes!
I've also been thinking about all of the photos I haven't edited and all of the stories I haven't written. I'll get to them. It's been tough. Being busy with the short people and thinking about my dad; visiting with my mom and sisters; watching the weather and waiting for a chance to do some planting. I even gained a year and didn't mention it back in March. Heh!
You know...life. It just keeps on rolling.
I'm still here, though and that's a good thing!
