This week has been rainy and stormy. There are sunny breaks, but they don't last long.
It's the kind of weather that puts me in a cooking/baking mode. Earlier in the week I made a Citrus Cake. Right now there is a Savannah Sour Cream Pound Cake in the oven.
When it comes out of the oven a homemade Hawaiian Pizza is going in.
I've also baked bread twice this week. It tasted great with the home-made chicken soup. Made more...needed to make sure there was bread in the house in case a grandchild requires a PB&J.
There will be pound cake when the kids come to pick up Family Fish, but that branch of the family tree love chocolate, so also made Ina's chocolate with white chocolate chunks cookies.
Hopefully, this will make them not too sad about having to leave sunny CA!

It has been an interesting journey; this blogging experience. There is a lot of difference between a year ago and now. I started out thinking everything needed to be perfect. I worried about editing photos and proper grammar, punctuation, and syntax. I worried no one would come to visit if I failed to post daily. Now I just let it fly for the most part, with lots of ellipses... and mostly straight out of the camera shots. I blog when it works out for me to do so.
It isn't that I think my readers are not worthy of more; it's that perfection and blogmania was interfering with my personal life. That kind of blogging is VERY time consuming, and something or someone's gotta give. My sweet hubby deserves better than that.
So enter: mission Balance. I love blogging, I love when readers comment, and making new friends. I love sharing family with other family. I've always enjoyed yakking and writing...and yakking. Thank you for sticking with me, and did I say I love when readers comment?!
God bless you dear reader.

It's going to be so wonderful to relax and play queen of the hill instead of inmate of the rock pile!
The weather has been decent this week so we have been getting some work outside accomplished. Among the tasks, has been unearthing a pile of old broken bricks, concrete pieces, and concrete pier blocks. We are finally going to get them OUTTA HERE! This same pile has been moved 3 times. I'm starting to feel like the Israelites and that "same old mountain again."
My goal is to reduce the number of obstacles behind the barn, so that Jim can have a straight shot at mowing back there, and reduce the amount of weed whacking around piles. It's shaping up a little more each day. It's a pretty day again...supposed to be our best yet, so I need to get off of here, and back to the chain gang, Don'cha know? "Hmmh... Hah, Hmmh... Haw...workin' on a chain gang..."
(remember Sam Cooke's cool song, in the movie "Cadence"?)
