My self imposed blog break has been wonderful and weird all at the same time.
Driving around blogland only as a passenger has been interesting and freeing,
but not as relaxing as I thought it would be.
I feel a little antsy.
I keep wanting to grab the wheel and wrench it away so that I can drive back to my blog and write down something... anything.
So today I will be joining up with Alphabe Thursday, a wonderful place to hang out with Jenny Matlock.
I felt like I needed a little visit.
Plus, I have pictures... oh do I have pictures.
They just seemed so lonely sitting there on my hard drive without anyone taking a boo.
There, I feel so much better already.
Now for that little chat...
We went to The Agonomist's parents for our Thanksgiving weekend, the farm where he grew up, the farm his grandfather homesteaded.
Have I ever told you The Agronomist's family are amazing cooks. Every last one of them.
Except maybe his dad, but I've heard he does a mean toast.
We always have such a wonderful time there.
This is Simba.
For my youngest, who is an animal lover, and of course the only child who has her mom's terrible allergies, this is a big part of what she looks forward to.
That face, that snout, those eyes.
We ply her with doses of Benadryl (my daughter...not the dog) and she gets in her snuggle time.
Simba is one of the nicest farm mutts we have ever had the pleasure to know.
This is Raven.
(and her tongue)
She lives in the city and she thinks she's a farm dog.
She comes to visit with her family, and she is so much fun.
She will fetch until the cows come home.
And since the cows no longer reside at the farm,
that pretty much means she fetches forever
And then she rests.
Dog days... sometimes they look a little bit like heaven to me.
Except... for the fetching part.
Love ya like Claritin and Visine,
PS...CSN stores have offered one of my readers a $45 gift certificate.
I'll post the details tomorrow : )
So happy you stopped by!
I missed you!
Here is where I've been hanging out.
October is half way done, and they will all be posting daily for another 18 days!
