photos vs. writing

I'm going to be getting back to more writing one of these days.  Honest I will.  I know the blog has been a bit photo-heavy lately (when I've bothered to post, that is), and while I know photos can be lovely and perhaps even longed for (I'm looking at you, Grandma!), I've always felt that an appealing blog should have a nice balance of writing and photos.

"Always" meaning of course, for the four or so years that I've been poking around in the bloggy world.  Or blogosphere, if that's not too contrived a word.

Although it just may be, anyway.

I've mentioned that I've been busy.  And it's true - we're three weeks back into homeschooling, and between baby care, basic (and I do mean basic) household maintenance, and keeping food on the table, there are times I can barely keep my head above water.  Also, and I know this is hardly an original seems that the laundry load has quadrupled since sweet Gabriel was born.  People say things like that all the time, but I've never felt it so markedly as I do this time around.  So of course, there's the laundry factor, and I am desperately trying to find time to exercise as much as possible.

But beyond the busyness, I've been in a bit of a fog personally.  Such things don't really lend themselves to good writing.  Or even, writing much at all.

However, the fog is lifting.  And as it does, I'm feeling more like doing some of the things I love to do.  Like blogging.  And baking.  So as I find little slivers of time, I'm going to try to work those things into my life.

Hopefully, you'll find more writing here soon.  But don't worry, there will be photos, too.  After all, we must consider the needs of Grandma!

I'm sorry to hear you've been in a fog, but I am thrilled to hear that it is lifting. Yay God!
