I've been on a bit of a blogging hiatus for the past couple weeks, as you may have noticed. First the kids both caught the flu, just as the weather outside was turning sunny and lovely. I spent my time taking care of sick children and getting some spring chores done outside, and then I got the flu. To add more insanity to the mix, seeding started, so Mr. Man has been out in the fields except for suppers and a few brief hours of sleep at night.
If nothing else, getting sick always reminds me that it is okay if a few days go by with nothing accomplished, and that spending meaningful time with my little ones is more important than having home-baked bread or clean carpets or timely blog posts. So after recuperating, I've been spending the warm days out in the sandbox and baby pool with my busy kids, and enjoying picnics in the field with our small family.
That said, I have missed writing! And exploring the arts with Yummy and Dooter. The arts have been taking a backseat to the current happenings. Soon we'll be back at it!
