I admit that it IS totally ironic that after all that the blog and I have managed to plow through over the past two!! years: the first summer of painting the old house, then, the sorting, and packing up of every single thing we owned; the autumn of the “Big Move” (three truck loads, three van loads), my mom’s illness and continuing (thank goodness) recovery, the ever-demanding painting and repairs needed in our new house, the unpacking on this end (still not done a year and a half later: those boxes are now sitting, not-so-patiently, waiting for their turn), that NOW would seem to be the time to “just be”…to push the re-set button…but, I think that THAT is what we need to do. The blog and I are taking a “summer vacation”. We will be back in September. If you send us your email address (to firstname.lastname@example.org), “we” will knock on your “door” as the days once again get shorter, and the nights, cooler…take care.
