|My dress matched the car!|
Back home again in the Flint Hills, I'm nearly caught up on laundry and cleaning, although I did clean the house before we left. The heat nearly did in the garden while we were away, but I am babying it along, trying to keep the squash vines alive as long as possible so my pumpkins will stay fresh until Halloween. The apples on our dwarf Jonathan tree ripened up nicely, and they are awaiting being turned into applesauce. Some Postman has begun work on the roof, and I am helping as much as I'm able, which at this point is only picking up the old shingles after he's removed them. This job is doubling as my workout, since conveying them by wheelbarrow to the burn pile next to the garden proves to be quite aerobic. And I'm hoping to get my eBay auctions revved up again soon.
All of this has resulted in pushing blogging to the back burner, BUT -- I am determined to post regularly again, as this is a necessary creative outlet for me. The blog also encourages me to put some thought into my appearance, which tends to be a struggle for me most days. My goal is at least three posts a week, beginning next week. Fingers crossed!
