It's been a long time
Summer, or what we're going to get of it this year. Sun some days. The garden. Very busy at work. Trying to get Liam out more to practice being with other children. (He is doing better at this; he did eventually try out this fountain and loved it.) Potty training (for Liam), he must learn by fall, it's required for his new school.
Family visits and more to come, which we are looking forward to.
One successful canning project (strawberry jam) complete; a second total failure (apricot butter which failed to set and is good for nothing but pancake syrup for people who really like apricots) also done.
I'm back from a lovely weekend away, still feeling the calm of about 48 hours of no "Mommy!, Mommy!, Mommy!" (Thanks Mom and Dave.) And on Tuesday I am invited to go rowing, and have said "yes" for the first time in about 5 years. And I'm looking forward to it.
