A quick howdy do

Really, I don't mean to keep abandoning my blog. I have lots I want to say. I had a big ol' photo dump planned. And then life keeps getting in the way. Just in the last week, the dishwasher went on the frit ( hand washing dishes for 7 people and we make every last blessed thing from scratch. That equals a lot of dishes.), I finished pulling the garden and all of the weeds out by hand, Sprout fell and fractured his elbow (which meant leaving our bonfire party early to take him to the ER, followed by a trip to a different ER so he could be casted (fingers to armpit) and finally getting home after midnight), having to put B.'s dog of 13 years down (heartbroken children), the big computer going on the fritz (no Internet service), and my having to sleep with Sprout because his cast is bothering him and makes it difficult to get comfortable. I havent actually slept per se nice Sunday. I've catnapped. Lots of fun.
I can at least post from the iPad, but I can't post pictures. Just so's ya know I ain't dead.
Be back.... eventually. Over and out.


  1. Oh my word.

    That is a lot to deal with! What won't kill you only makes you stronger- right? At least, that is what I tell myself when I have days/weeks/months that feel like they might! ;-)

    Poor Sprout- I hope his arm gets better with lightening speed.

  2. You guys have had a lot going on! Same here. Hang in there.

  3. Oh my!!!
    I'll be praying for you.
    Thank you for the letter. Will reply.....soon....I hope...

  4. Bonnie, I hope things have gotten better. I know all about doing dishes by hand; we've lived lots of places where we didn't have a dishwasher. The children hated being assigned dish duty on baking days. Oh well, life goes on and they are all great dishwashers. Blessings to you, keep up the good work.
