i know that i've been quiet here - it's only because life has been anything but quiet - in a good way, and in the quiet moments, i'm not blogging, i'm trying to just be with my family.
i've been trying to update my flickr with a picture and thoughts every few days . . . you can check for me there when i'm not here.
this december has been different. we have no snow. and lots of days have been sunny and in the thirties and even forties for temperatures. we are still enjoying riding our bikes and hiking through our woods and having fires in the yard . . . it's amazing. a little strange, but wonderful.
yesterday afternoon, ben and the kids and i went and loaded up the back of his truck with wood and walked and smiled in the sunshine wearing sweatshirts and hats. i love this! to help us feel like christmas there is plenty of ice on the lakes for ice-fishing, though, and we'll eat perch and wall-eye tonight.
i hope to share a bit more with you all over this week. we'll see how it all goes.
i hope that this christmas season is beautiful for you, my friends. i wish you all joy and peace in these next weeks of celebrating.
love and hugs, ~e
