It's been a while. But I am here. Lost in a summer that wears many coats. I have decided to clean our home almost as if we were moving. Every nook and cranny…every messy drawer and closet. Every piece of paper, EVERYTHING. And it's taking a very long time.

I have now been on vacation for about a month. And I see progress. But my goal is to be DONE by the end of July. So cheer me on please! I need people over my shoulder encouraging me! I can see the finish line! It will feel amazing to reclaim my chaotic home.

And don't worry! I have had time in the garden! Usually I head down early in the morning, or late in the afternoon. Or I take a little peek halfway through the day.
The flowers have all just burst on the scene and their color and shape and texture bring me such joy! I have gardened for 40 years, and still have goosebumps when I see blossoms open from seeds I sowed.
Quite honestly, if I had time, I'd probably pack a lunch and stay the day :)

But then I'd miss out on UNO marathons with a certain 11 year old (both of us exhausted and VERY punchy after a night of Cyclic Vomiting Syndrome…131 days…yes!)
And I'd miss out on a certain 16 year old getting picked up for
his driving lesson.

And goodness knows I'd miss out on a certain pug following every step I take…hopeful for a green bean.

So I am here…lost in the satisfaction of everyday life. Smile.
To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven.
