And So It Goes

The past few months have been difficult. Nothing completely earth-shattering, but difficult enough to have kind of put a halt to most creativity, or ability to even want to write. A grand funk, if you will.

I have never been a fan of blogs (or Facebook pages, for that matter) that whine about someones lot in life, or spew negativity, because really, we all have our struggles. So, I haven't been writing. I just haven't felt like it. But now I do. So I am going to attempt to get caught up here, because this is my record of what goes on in our little family. I'm slightly cross with myself for leaving the last few months essentially blank, but that is how life goes sometimes. We struggle until we get to a point where things start to turn around. I dare say that summer has something to do with the shift I am beginning to feel - - oh, how I love summer!

School has just let out, and the boys and I are gearing up for a great summer. Annual Training started today, and I am happy that we are getting that out of the way so that Steve can join us on many of our adventures. We sure did miss him last summer. I can't wait to see what the months ahead have in store for us!

(This photo clearly has nothing to do with this post, but I had to add it, because Smokey is just weird. This is her preferred sleeping position)

Hehe! I love the Smokey photo - and her well-used scratching post! Looks like my cat's one! Nice to hear that things are picking up for you now that the summer adventure is beginning :) I think the weather definitely has a big effect on our demeanour, and I can imagine how the summery weather is helping to dig you out of your funk. Hope you get to maybe enjoy a nice glass of wine tonight before bed :)

Nicky my kitties are going on their 4th scratching post. I initially got them one and figured they would never touch it, but they are both dedicated scratching-post users! Yes, the weather and the wonderfulness of summer are definitely having a positive impact. And...just finished a lovely glass of wine :)

I was glad to see a new post from you! I hope that you'll share updates over the coming months - about your cute camper, your chickens, and all your creative endeavours. :) Love the kitty pic too....silly pets are the best kind.
