The mantra of this weekend has been "Done!"

Done!--Federal, Georgia, and Virginia tax returns. Yes, I do our taxes myself, and no, I won't do yours unless I really really like you.

Done!--painting the trim and touching up the walls in our now blue guest bathroom.

Done!--caulking around the tub, sink, and window in the blue bathroom.

Done!--planning dinner menu for my cousin's visit on Wednesday.

Done!--a blog post before the end of the weekend (barely).

Yet, my to do list seems so long still. Please let me know if you're interested in volunteering.

It's been WAY too long

OK, so I know that I haven't posted anything in like over 6 months, but I'm back. I promise.

We've moved into our first house; I've had a temp job and gotten a real job; we've adopted a dog; and I've been able to see my family more times in the last 6 months than in all of the last 4 years combined. I've also started a quilt, started making napkins and place mats for my mother, and started an exercise routine, none of which I have completed. It's been wonderful.

I haven't been blogging because I've been busy and lazy. We're finally getting settled into a routine, and I even have photos of 2 new recipes, our house, and the dog to share with you. But first I have to get the photos off my laptop. My Sweet Husband has taken my laptop out of town with him, so I won't be able to get those posts done until he gets back Saturday.

So, lets just ignore the fact that I've taken a 6 month hiatus and get back to what's really important--food, crafts, family, and memories, with a few opinions thrown in for good measure.

I hope I haven't lost my 4 readers during my period of neglect. I'll be before the weekend ends with another post. Until then, my dears, good night. I feel better already.
