I've been caught up in a whirlwind of baking and preparing for family here. It is such a big change from the empty house and anticipation of the previous month. I shouldn't be surprised at how much fun I am having or how exhausted I am at the end of each day, but somehow I am. I have to admit it is a very good kind of exhausted though and I am looking forward to kicking back and beginning this evening I am looking forward to kicking back and relaxing and reveling in a week filled with family.
I wish you all peace and joy and the pleasures of good company. I don't anticipate being back here before 2011, when some kind of more regular scheduling should resume.
