yes, indeed, things are really and truly o.k.
i know, i know.
i fell off the blogging planet around here a few months ago...
to the point where concerned emails and comments are starting to roll in.
please accept my apology for my absence here, but
life has just been busy, busy, busy,
and, in the meantime, my blogging mojo just faded away.
life has been filled with all the usuals:
cooking & baking,
caring for the animals,
visiting with family (both here and away),
spinning, knitting, sewing, dyeing, quilting,
gathering, sorting, washing, delivering, and selling of eggs:
hundreds and hundreds of eggs each week,
reading (not as much as i'd like),
and so on and so on and so on and so on...
feeling a little scattered much of the time.
wanting more quality and quantity time to finish up some projects,
start new ones,
try new things,
learn new skills.
and always wishing for,
more chill time together as a family,
more time with friends...in person, not on facebook,
more quiet time alone,
more hours in the day,
more sleep at night.
also, it's been a long, loooooooong winter here.
my eyes are still adjusting to the impossibly lush green growth all around,
shocked still by the lack of white snow,
and half loving/half sick of the grey skies.
we are still processing the idea that summer solstice will be here in only a couple of days.
how can this be?
that white stuff in front of the mountains in the picture above?
that is snow falling up there, only a few days ago.
last weekend people were still heading up the road beyond us to go snowmobiling.
we're still hauling in wood and lighting fires at least once a day or evening.
it's all just a little bit absurd, in the best of ways, mind you.
another thing is that my camera went on the fritz last month so i've been using the tiny, point & shoot backup camera with no view finder. yes, i'm still taking pics, but it isn't very inspiring, and it's difficult to capture that which i'm seeing with it.
all that said, i'm still posting over on flickr on a far more regular basis than i have been over here, so if you're worried, please feel free to check in on us over there. there is a link to my photostream in the sidebar at right.
thank you so much for your inquiries.
life is full. and good.
