Taking a Summer Break

As much as I hate to say it, I'm at the point of "something has got to give." This has become a season where my time has become more precious as we work on 4-H projects every evening, try to keep the nightly exercise resolution that Bryan and I made, go to classes all day on Saturdays, not to mention, well, life!

As much as I love to putter around this blog, I'm taking it off my "to-do" list for the time being. I still hope to post occasionally as time allows, but definitely not as a daily goal.

I hope you'll stop by now and again to see if we've been up to anything. In a month or so, things should be calmer (that is a relative term).

God Bless,


  1. I hope you get the break you need. Are you having fun in your "Saturday school"? Hope everything works out for your classes, and things slow down for you guys soon.

  2. I totally understand, but I will miss your posts! Hurry back!

  3. Hi Lainie,
    I've been back home for several days and just now remembered to find your blog! While you are on your much-needed break from blogging, I will enjoy catching up on all the "back issues".

    Thank you for opening your home to this West-Coast visitor last week. It was a delight!
