That's what I feel like I've been doing to this blog...neglecting something that I love doing because there are so many other things I have to do! This blog doesn't feed my family, bathe my daughter, love my husband, fold my clothes, etc. I think you get the idea. BUT, this blog does give me a creative outlet, it connects me to my family and friends, it connects me to a world that - between changing diapers, errands, meals, nap times and a plethora of other things - I feel I'm not always a part of.
Oh, I've been plenty busy. Gardening, canning, planning for the holidays, remodeling, working to create flower beds around the house...I haven't sat still for long. And that's ok. However, I want to work harder at sitting still long enough to write. Patience isn't always easy for me. It gets used up early in the day and when my thoughts don't flow quickly and easily from my fingers, I want to put it off. I'm going to work not to put it off because we do so many things that I want all of you to see and be a part of. Besides, Elizabeth is too cute to keep off of here for long!
Since Sweet Baby Girl is napping, I need to step out to the garden now and replant spinach and maybe do some chopping. The chopping will be punishment enough for my neglect.
