the prodigal blogger returns

Here I am, back among the living. I have finally cuaght up on some sleep, survived a week alone while Allen was in Mexico on business. I have been hustling to get stuff done for a dinner/dance auction for our town ed foundation this week and I can report my room redux is almost done. Curtains (lined with thermal and blackout liner- oh so luxiurious, pretty, and energy efficient) are made and the new paintings are done. My camera is still away at canon being repaired (this is back to back trip #2) so I haven't wanted to blog becasue well I need pictures! Pictures are worth a thousand words and I can't get enough computer time to write thousand words descriptions for all the things I need to show you. I do have a blurry pic of the new paintings- but I promise a room shot to follow soon.
I have also been making checkerboard cakes and cookies with boys, venturing outside to clean up the nasty dead plants now that the snow is gone, and planting a small orchard of fruit trees.
You can also catch me on segullah today, talking about A God of Details and Embracing Smallness.

Also as soon as my camera returns next up- my post Gardening at 10 feet in the air
So I'll be seeing you.

Welcome back. I need to see these curtains you are talking about. Remember, you are supposed to help me with those kinds of things!

Glad you're back. Sorry about the camera. I got mine back on Saturday (its 2nd trip to the repair shop in 6 weeks -- ugh!). Show us the room!!

Yay! Tell me about your fruit trees. We've planted them in every yard we've owned and never lived there long enough to reap the rewards. Just call me Johnny Appleseed. But this year I have apricots on my apricot tree! Only 5 little green fuzz balls, but I am so excited. I just love the look of the apricot tree and leaves. Very graceful.

I know what you mean, I've been MIA lately in the blogging world so I'm glad I can visit to see what you're up to.
