We're back! Did you miss me? :) I missed this space, but I was kept busy with hiking, swimming, biking, kayaking, board games, reading, knitting, picture-taking, lots of ping pong, and the sort. I see have a lot to catch up on around here - lots of blog reading, catching up on one or two tv shows, and the house is a disaster amidst all the unpacking. There are at least eight full loads of laundry sitting rather unpatiently in front of the washer. I am dreading opening the day planner as I do every time I step away for a holiday. And baking! Oh how I've missed baking! I'll be doing some of that this weekend. Bread, muffins, and maybe some cookies. And I need to hit a fruit and veggie stand ASAP. Mmm-mmm-mm . . .
