still here

Days go by so fast, don’t they? Having an abandoned blog looming in the back of your mind is a great reminder of this. Somehow it has been almost a year since I have been here. If you are still here you have my gratitude. I have needed time to be quiet yet have missed the outlet of getting my thoughts and days into written form.

I don’t really think you have missed much or perhaps there is so much that I have not shared that it seems like all the world but somehow I would like to have some of those days present here. Perhaps a flash back post here and there? In the meantime, we are all still here where we always are, at home making up what creates a life. Food, clothing, gardening, reading, knitting, just being together. We are still doing all of those things. So perhaps just to get over my writers block I will share with you some of our pictures and then give myself the grace to start anew.

A few things we have done

Visit home and get some actual family pics done

Mateo turned a whole 4 years old

Almsot everyone turned another year older except JP whose birthday is a mere week from now

Lot of work outside

Hundreds of meals cooked

Got a visit from Alex and Lewis and the babies

Lots of living but so much missing from here so what I would like to do is just have a Flash back Friday every week where I can start to document the important days that I don’t want to leave out. And now that I have taken to top off the bottle (I feel so much better already) I can start fresh and that is always such a good thing in life, isn’t it?

Our Saturdays in spring are even better!  Farmers markets early (we go to three of them), work around here, activities to go to and friends to visit or tend to if they visit us.  The next couple of week will be jam packed here with planting season finally almost upon us and Derby.  Derby brings about not only a horse race but weeks of festivals and events and its so hard to choose which ones we want to go to. So hard.

Sometimes we all split up and end up in different directions.  Poppa takes some kids with him, I take the rest with me or some stay home with their big siblings to babysit.  Everyone eager to fulfill their goals and then at the end of the day, we all get to come back here to our home and be together.   Dinner, perhaps a movie or a board game.  Always different but always fun.

So, what did you do this last weekend?
