I Didn't Mean to Go Cold Turkey

Monday, May 19, 2014

I'm popping back in to say, "Hello!" and "Gee, things have been hectic," and "I said May is Cray," and "That's my excuse for dropping off the face of the bloggy-verse."

I've got a couple of things planned for this space between now and summer, but honestly, I'm heading towards a real summer break. Like a not-blogging-at-all break. I'm at that point where my brain is so full, I'm jotting notes to myself on scraps of paper, wherever they may lie:
 - VBS email
 - Print photos
 - Tball snacks
 - HSA contribution
 - Babysitter
 - Coffee, soap, peanut butter

And that's just what I found on the kitchen counter. You get it. You're there, too. I know. Let's do the silent nod of understanding. It's just that time of year . . . 

Which has been great. Busy - yes, of course - but these are good days. Let's not forget that in the rush.

I'm going to leave you with two of my favorite pictures from the last few days. This one is my oldest at his first piano recital. My sister-in-law took it, and I love it.
If you're ever discouraged about the state of the world, attend a recital and listen to young people play classical music. Listen to them perform pieces they've memorized and worked on for months. It will restore your faith.

Then there's this:
The one on the end in the striped shirt is my youngest. This was after his preschool graduation, and I love the joy on these boys' faces. These buds have been together since they were toddlers. Friendship is a grand gift.

So, persistence and friendship. These are just two of the gems that have come out of this "busy" time. I'm grateful, and I'm savoring. 

And I will be back with more, later.

Speaking of friendship . . . Linking up for the last time and excited about what is in store for her:

  1. Oh, Courtney, the first recital picture is priceless. My husband started playing at age 8 and hasn't stopped all these 50 years later. I treasure the few photos I have of him playing at a young age. I hope your summer is full of fun and your soul has a chance to rejuvenate.

  2. When choosing the Antique Basin Taps, one should shop around before purchasing a specific item. There is always a tendency to find something that may sometimes look better or be priced in a more pleasing way than the purchased one.
