It's been a bit quiet these past few days and weeks, mainly because I've been quiet. Stuff is going on around me, and when I feel up to it, I take part, maybe even a photo or two. But mostly, I'm sitting reading or lying in bed. My children have been such blessings to me, too - they help each other out, save most of the bickering until I'm feeling able to deal, make the occasional breakfast or lunch (Abigail's becoming rather proficient in the kitchen), and even pitching in with some extra chores. Wow.
Our camping trip with the Wilsons a couple weeks ago was awesome. We had a brilliant time together, going for walks, playing at the beach, hanging 'round the campfire and paddling in the canoe. Girls who showed no previous interest in boating became converts - result! There was no rain and few bug bites this time round, but it was colder the we expected and we didn't see any bears. We did meet a raccoon, though, so all was not lost...
Look closely enough, and you'll see the paw prints, trying to get to our food
Abigail has now lost both front teeth, and oddly enough, she can still whistle!
I haven't been doing a lot of "making" recently - I either haven't felt up to it or I've been rather uninspired by my current projects. I've been working on this dress for Abi for ages, not because it's hard - quite straightforward, really - but I haven't really been able to get to it. It's going to look so cute when it's done. I've also been doing some charity knitting - one way to work through Grandmom's yarn. A few scarves for this charity, and when I get bored with that, I'll get started on this little ditty for the new babe.
Right now, though, I'll settle for when I feel more human...

Ginger ale is beautiful
Cheese and cucumber on crackers is divine
