Checking in!

My plan is to get back on a regular blogging schedule after next weekend. We're still getting settled in the house and we're loving it. Our neighbors are really nice, plus two of them have girls Dorothy's age. She's happy as a clam playing with them. Speaking of Dorothy, she's turning 5 next week! She missed the cutoff for public school Kindergarten, but I may try out the home school thing this year, anyhow. We'll do some pre-K/K stuff and see how she does.

By the way, plum jam is awesome! I'll be sure to share with you all about it when I get back to writing more next week.

Back to Blogging Soon...

Between house preparations, packing, and taking care of two homes (rental and new house), I am too busy to sit and write much at the moment. I have lots of blog posts rolling around in my head, and they will make it on here.... when things calm down a bit. But for now, know that we're doing ok. Just busy! The move is planned for Saturday, then David will be on vacation next week. We'll unpack, have William's 1st birthday party/housewarming BBQ, then hopefully go camping or to the beach next weekend. In addition, I now have a plum tree that is bursting with plums, which I'll be pitting and freezing for use later in fruit leather and jam. The pear tree is not too far behind. The zucchini, peas, beans, and tomatoes will also be coming up on their most productive few weeks pretty soon. I see a lot of canning in my future!
