Lilacs and Irises ~ a birthday gift from a friend
I'm not really back yet, and I'm not really gone...let me explain. I've been struggling with whether I should be blogging at this time in my life. Living on a small farm keeps me pretty busy. On top of that, a few months ago I started watching two of my grandchildren (2 & 4 yrs. old) four days a week, and the combination of both these things has overwhelmed me a bit. At first I thought I could be "Super Grandma" and that lasted about a month...until I realized I really didn't have any super powers of my own. It took a while to figure this out, but when my house started looking like it did when my five boys where home, and the grape vines where weeks overdue for pruning, and I forgot to get the pony's hooves trimmed until she looked like she was wearing elf shoes, then it hit me! I started thinking maybe I should use my "spare" time to do these things instead of blogging!
But...I love to blog. I love visiting my blog friends. How could I not have tea with them each week? I would miss all the parties! So I tucked my laptop into its case, and these questions with it. I left them there to be pondered for a while. My teacups are as anxious for an answer as I am.
While I wait, I will pray...and hope to be back with you again, at least once in a while:)
