How do you eat an elephant?

One bite at a time!
I confess, that is how I am feeling about life these days. Our month “off” has proven to be quite wonderfully full of family and friends and delights of the soul, but I fear I have fallen behind in some of the more “regular” parts of our life. Like staying on top of the bookkeeping. Or actually getting the vacuum out and cleaning. Or even beginning to blog about the grand time we had at the Cabin and the special time we are now having with our son and wife and beautiful family here in Ohio. We leave on Sunday for a two day drive to Lindale, TX where we’ll be hanging around for the annual SOWER Board of Trustee meeting at the end of next week. I’m not sure those days will be any less full, but maybe – just maybe- I’ll begin to get caught up with some of this stuff.
So I’ll follow the elephant eating advice, and take it one bite at a time.
Tonight’s bite is just to say – please have patience! If you don’t mind some “this happened last week” (or the week before) posts, I promise I’ll get back in the saddle soon.
But for now I need to get to bed – our last day with the kids promises to be a full one!
Thanks for hanging in with me!
Who knows when I’ll get to the vacuuming!

  1. Really, who cares when you get to the vacuuming? It’ll get done in due time. Glad you’re having such a good time. What you’re doing is so much more important.

  2. ‘Cooking and cleaning can wait till tomorrow
    For babies grow up, much to our sorrow
    So quiet down cobwebs, dust go to sleep
    I’m rocking my babies
    And babies don’t keep’

    I use to live by that poem–and with grandkids, I still do!
