My blogging hiatus

Nothing relaxes me quite like the beauty of the great outdoors.

As some of you may have noticed, I took a hiatus from blogging last week.  It wasn’t really planned, it just kindof happened.  My nephews were in town for the week, life had been very busy for a while, and I was feeling overwhelmed with everything on my plate.  Blogging just didn’t make the cut for the week, but now I’m feeling more rejuvenated and ready to give you an update on what I’ve been up to.
