I’m sorry to be gone so long! The decision to temporarily get back into the working world has thrown my extra-curricular activities (like blogging) by the wayside a bit. I’ve been traveling and staying away from home a lot for the past two weeks. This is turning out to be more like a full-time job that will probably keep me busy through December. Poor hubby has been doing a great job picking up the slack at the home front. And undoubtably, Marty has been into mischief without my constant supervision. Maybe he’s the one behind all the comments from Chinese bloggers who spam us with links to naughty web sites! You think?
The weather has been dreadfully hot here, with many days teasing into record territory. We finally got a little rainfall today. Yeah! The view outside our front windows has improved significantly this week. The construction dumpster finally got hauled off. Another yeah! Hubby has been seeing all kinds of wildlife while I have been gone, including deer (back yard) and coyotes (front yard). Today, he spotted a wild turkey roaming around in the back yard woods. We’ve been missing our hummingbird friends, so hubby got a new feeder and put it up right outside our dining room windows. Within minutes of filling it up with sugar water, here they came for drinks! These hummers are really brave too, so I see picture opportunities in the days ahead.
If I can get Marty, the pesky furball, out of my computer chair long enough, I’ll have a "part 2" post sometime this weekend about our beautiful kitchen here at the cottage. We have a dinner party scheduled for tomorrow. On Monday, I'm back on the road again for the job. So I plan to do some serious catching up on my blog reading on Sunday. I hope everyone had a wonderful 4th holiday celebration. I can’t wait to find out everyone’s latest adventures!
P.S. Do you like this bigger font? I'm beginning to think that my usual font size is a bit too small. Please let me know!
