Falling off the wagon

I may be hanging from one finger, legs dangling, off the side of the blog wagon. I had the same problem with the five million diaries I tried to keep when I was growing up. Oh, I always had the best of intentions. And it went well for a while. Then life got in the way.

Not only did a start a blog this summer, but I also planned to crochet six scarves (winter holiday gifts), sew two art smocks for Rowan, and finally get to ripping out the jungle of weeds threatening to take over our front porch. Um...what was I thinking? I think I'm a domestic goddess stuck in a working mother's body!

So, let me lighten my load and remind myself this is not a chore. Nor is it a burden. I will blog when I can and leave the rest to fate.

July and August have been full, full, full. We spent a long weekend at the lake with Meme and Grampy and went boating with Pop-pop and Grandma. Fished, foraged for blueberries, roasted marshmallows, the usual. Next week we're off to the very southern coastal waters of North Carolina for a week with a few other families. I won't promise I'll write soon, but I'll try. I'm sure I'll have tons of great pics from the beach. In the meantime, here are some shots from the lake....
