What's Up?

My, oh my, I have been slacking on my blogging lately. I'm having a hard time keeping up with everyone's posts. Goodness, I can't seem to even find time to post on my own blog! I'm trying desperately to keep caught up on my reading because I don't want to miss out on what is happening with all of you, but if you feel by any chance that I have been neglecting you, I apologize, I really do.  Let me see if I can explain why I've been a slacker in the blog world.

Here's the rundown... 



Gardening~ I've been doing a lot of it lately! We finally got all of the garden planted, except for a few more rows of corn that need to go in.  Plus I've been working in my flowers gardens almost daily. I'm trying to get some annual flower seeds in the ground so that I will have lots of glorious color come mid-summer.




Softball~ My boys don't play Little League, so for the past two summers, my friend and I have organized a 6 week Christian  Children's Softball League. Its a laid back affair.  No practices, just Monday night Softball games.  My friend's husband brings his portable grill and we roast up hot dogs and chow down while cheering on our children. I don't know who has more fun the kids or the parents, who are gifted with 2 hours worth of social time!



4-H~ It's that time of year again...FAIR! As administrative leader of our group, I am still learning the ins and outs.  Since it is only my 2nd year, it takes me a bit more time than someone who knows what they are doing. Sometimes I feel very clueless! I have spent a bit of time the past couple of weeks organizing a club meeting and working on paperwork for the fair.  Nothing strenuous, but I like to make sure I have all my ducks in a row!

Lack of creativity~ The creative writing portion of my brain is on hiatus. I cannot seem to come up with anything clever, inspirational or outstanding. My life here is pretty simple and the normal day to day doesn't seem to provide any fodder!

Bone tired~ After laying in bed 24/7 for 2 1/2  months I am finding   that I get worn out really easy.  By the afternoon, on most days, I feel like I need a nap and all the muscles in my back seem to be protesting that they can't hold me upright much longer.  But, I'm gaining and making improvement, for that I am grateful.

S-L-O-W Internet connection~ This dial-up is torturing me. It is taking considerable time for the blogs to come up, then if I want to comment I have to wait some more. FRUSTRATING! I guess it is one of the negatives of living in such a rural place.


Life~ You know all that stuff like, doctors appointments, grocery shopping, house cleaning, feeding of the hungry hordes, piano lessons, and keeping my little animals from bickering constantly now that they are on summer break.


Well there you have it, my life in a list!


  1. I am just so glad that you are better and actually get to partake in life again! What a blessing. Enjoy it to the utmost!

  2. Oh boy, what a busy mama! Don't worry! We totally understand. Dial up?? eeee! I had that for a long while and what a pain in the heinie that was! So thrilled to hear you're getting better slowly!!

  3. Oh dear you have been a busy lady! Don't you just love summer/spring! I do... Though I admit I was happy for a rainy week this week to actually get caught up on laundry and checking ;O) But I'm almost ready for some sunshine b/c we need to weed the garden and go to the pool and and and....

    Love that you all do a christian soft ball league! I love that!

    Enjoy getting caught up in blogland :O)

  4. Just enjoy it! The blog world will be here when life slows down for you! ♥

  5. i'm right there with ya....enjoy your summmer and have lots of fun outside.

  6. Hey it's a GOOD thing to be too busy for the computer, I hope I will be one of these days ;) enjoy your time, attend reality, and make beautiful memories with your family!! <3

  7. Girl! You are so busy! Do you sleep? Hope to catch up soon!

  8. It's me again! I gave you an award at my blog if you have time to participate. I understand the dial up thing...we had if for two years before moving to Georgia!

  9. I know ALLLLLL about that silly dial-up.
    It's just that we are a one income home. I can pay only 15 bucks a month..... rather than 45 bucks. I hate being cheap sometimes. lol

    Don't worry about being creative!! lol.... I put silly stuff on my blog all the time. :) Sometimes, silly stuff gets your mind off of the EVERYDAY stuff.

  10. sounds like a snapshot of my house! You're doing great though, especially with your back. Glad you're feeling better!

  11. Do you know how good it is to hear that you are up at all? Never apologize for not blogging. Blogs are like phones, they exist for our convenience.

    I am so glad to hear that you are doing well and busy. If we make it up there this summer, maybe we can go to a game.


Thank you for visiting my blog! I love to read your comments so take a few minutes and jot me a line or two!
