I haven't really been present in blogger world lately. I could apologize, but really, it's felt good to detach and not worry about pageviews and new content. I got to just focus on what was happening around me and it's felt really good. Really, really good.
I really enjoy being busy. These past few weeks I have been buried in orders, personal creations, church commitments, and life in general. I'll admit, it got a little sketchy for me at the end of last week when a few paintings weren't doing what I needed them to, but overall, I love going to bed completely exhausted at night.
How cool is science? I mean seriously! A rover just landed on Mars and is sending information back to Earth. I marvel at the minds of the groups of people who made such a thing possible. I'm lucky if I get the laundry folded...
I had no idea there could be so many different kinds of geometric patterns and that I would have such strong opinions about ones I like and dislike.
College a cappella music is just good for the soul. There are so many songs from "way back when" that I know purely from their a cappella counterparts. (Hats off to the Brown Derbies today who are serenading me as I work.)
Moving has never sounded so promising to me. It's just time, ya know? For a change. More space. Less rent. And a patio. It is most definitely time for a patio.
On that score...
I miss being outside. I have been working so much the last few weeks and it's been so hot and humid that outdoor living has been cut short.
We're going home this week! How in the world did that come about so quickly?!
I need to do laundry.
Swedish pancakes are yummy and I'm really looking forward to the weather cooling down so I can starting cooking and baking again. I've really missed making hearty meals this summer.
I am unbelievably blessed. With a comfortable home, work I love doing, a wonderful husband, family, faith; the list goes on and on.
