No really, I am back. For realsies. We just returned from our trip to Sarasota, Fl, where we visited with Big A’s grandparents.
If I sit and think of all the things that need to be done around the property and house—including all of the plans we have—everything becomes a little overwhelming and my brain goes numb. And then, of course, so do my limbs. Next thing I know I’ve spent the whole day crocheting and watching Little House on the Prairie and nothing but the crocheting got done (I guess I should be thankful for that much).
The same goes for the blog. If I really intended to put out here everything that has (and has not) gotten done, or everything that’s gone on since my last post (and a bit before then), I would post nothing. It’s too much, and worse, it’s all unwieldy and confusing. I’ll be trying to catch everyone up over the course of this week. I can’t possibly include everything, but you’ll hear about the saga of our lawn, about our Little Garden That Could, about some crocheting for charity, and musings on how the heck to get this ceramics thing going. And other things, I’m sure.
Today, though, you’ll get some pictures from our Florida trip.
These are just some of a billion pictures. We had a swell time. We need to learn to pace ourselves when we “go on vacation,” because we’re exhausted when we get back (like most Americans, I think). We’ve forgotten what a “vacation” is supposed to be. Next time, we’ll do more “relaxing.”
And now, how about some metal? Atheist came out of Sarasota. And don’t let the ‘stache fool you; Roger Patterson rocked the shit out of that bass. Here’s The Formative Years. This song is from their album ‘Unquestionable Presence,’ which was recorded and released after Patterson’s death. It’s a bummer he didn’t get to record this with them, but it’s cool we have this video.
