Wow, it's been 4 years since my last post, I believe. In many ways it seems shorter, but in some it also feels longer. So much has changed since my last post and this will just be to touch base before i hopefully start writing again. I do miss it, and miss the people that follow me. Wow, four years. The short of it is, I have been going through a divorce the last 3 years and hope to conclude this chapter this year. Please, let it be. Who knew that wanting to take care of yourself for once in your life could be so hard and life-changing? I am constantly learning and growing, although it's still a struggle to continue every day. More on this and the reason, later. I just wanted to pop back in and tell you hello, and that I've missed you. With any luck, I'm back. XOJ

Whew! It's Almost February?

How did this happen? Seems like I just picked those apples yesterday. Well, well, well.

How has your new year been treating you? Staying busy? We sure have. SuperBoy just started gymnastics last Thursday and thoroughly loves it. Couldn't be happier. So happy in fact, I keep getting asked, "Mommy, when is gin-nastics again?"

On the same day, a book club at the local library started up again for SuperGirl and other gals her age. They have a tea party tomorrow afternoon at the library to celebrate. Some local English ladies host it for the girls and bring scrumptious treats to enjoy. My favorites are the cucumber sandwiches. Yum!

Below is a pic of my latest endeavor. It's a scarf I've started at least 3 times and I think it's finally starting to take shape. If you're interested, you can find the pattern here. I'm hope mine turns out half as gorgeous as the first picture in the link. I can't wait and I'll keep you posted.

Time to wrestle the dust bunnies around here. Have a wonderful and safe weekend everyone!

Apple Picking. . .

Abandoned home in the orchard. LOVE the color of the staircase.

On our way home. . .

The First of Two Fish Hats. . .

Believe it or not, you heard me correctly. Er, read me correctly. I have almost completed SuperGirl's hat. THe only thing it needs are eyes, and I may go in search for those today. I'll update this post when I get them.

Pumpkin Picking 9.13.2009

I LOVE that folks still use the honor boxes.

Uh, yeah. We didn't buy this gourd, but I couldn't pass up the photo op.

Happy little fellow.

Pumpkin number one.

So long pumpkin patch! See you next year.

SuperGirl decided to take the gourds for a ride around the yard.

Our two lovelies. Unfortunately, the green one has started turning orange. Still fun though!

A Favorite New Quote. . .

I am aware that I am less than some people prefer me to be, but most people are unaware that I am so much more than what they see.

Do you have a favorite quote?

Spring Trip to Maymont. . .

If you ever have the chance to go to Maymont, go! It's an amazing place full of history and built for only TWO people!

This is Rachel, my web-friend-turned-real-friend. I met her on her blog and we met at Maymont this past Saturday. It was SO much fun!

Upon arriving home, we found two of our three black swallowtail butterflies had hatched. Beautiful end to a beautiful day.

My "Baby" Has a Fat Lip. . .

No, I didn't give it to him, though it has been tempting, lol. While setting up the stage for SuperGirl's Spring recital yesterday, SuperBoy was playing in the cafeteria of a local school(where I was) and somehow slipped and bumped his lip big time. It has a good gash inside the top lip and just above his lip on the outside. He said he hit the side of a table, but it sure looked worse than a mere run-in with a table. Here's how it looks today. Still a bit swollen and painful, but there are no more tears. I hope the healing's fast and there are no scars. Prayers for that.

I understand boys are a bit more rambunctious in general, but I really don't know if I'm up to it. It certainly keeps us on our toes around here, lol.

Blessings for a wonderful week,


How has your Spring been so far? Ours is flying by. Here's a picture of our sugar snap peas that are growing far past where I had intended. They're now up to my forehead and I think they've stopped since they're blooming. It's my first time with a garden and I'm winging a LOT of it, lol.

Do you have a garden this year? Large or small? Ours consists of four 4' square boxes, so it's nothing extravagant, by any means. It's certainly enough to keep me busy. Tell me about yours!

Sweeter Than Honeysuckle. . .

These are our 3 judd viburnim bushes in front of our house. They're about 5-6 feet tall and smell miles better than honeysuckle ever thought of smelling!

If you ever get the chance to smell one of these, please do! They really are a yummy plant, but I don't think they're edible. :)

And this is the bee friend I made while taking pictures of the flowers. Any idea what the little yellow sacs are on either side of its body? Supergirl thinks they are pollen collectors, and her guess is as good as mine.

I hope you are all enjoying the spring weather in your area. Have a terrific day!
