My Apologies...

Hi readers- the few that are left after my hiatus. I do apologize for the long stint of silence, I promise I haven't abandoned you. I have had zero energy over the past two weeks. I think it has to do with the fact that after I quit my job I just threw myself into catching up on all the housework that didn't get done while I was working. I feel like I haven't stopped moving from my last day of work until two weeks ago.

I have to be honest, it does feel good to only do the necessary. Well I did go thru Nick's toys and clothes last week, the only NOT necessary thing that has gotten done. But I have thoroughly enjoyed being lazy for a while.

Next week tho, I have to get it in gear and DO things, maybe that's when I'll start my herb garden. I want to grow mint, rosemary, basil and oregano. Christian is Italian so there will be no herb garden on our property that does not include that staple Italian herb. =)

I'm also starting to miss the country. I grew up on a small farm with lots of room to run around, lots of sun and a lot of privacy. We've lived in the country for about 18 months now and it's the longest I have lived away from my childhood playground. My back yard gets some sun but not nearly as much as I would like, especially for line drying clothes. I would like to grow tomatoes and peppers as well but the same question arises, where is there enough sun? It's also hard to remember to have the blinds down or curtains pulled before I changes clothes. Oh the things you take for granted...

Any way, just some ramblings for today, I am going to be better about writing on  a schedule and posting regularly.

"I (GOD) am with you and will keep watch over you where ever you go." Genesis 28:15


  1. I grew up in the suburbs and wish I knew how to garden ;)

  2. I grew up on a farm but my knowledge of gardening consisted of my dad or grandpa saying 'time to plant, hoe or harvest.' =). Love the name Maranatha by the way.
