It's true. Pictures don't lie.
I remember when I used to blog every morning, first thing, with a mug of hot coffee parked close at hand and a head full of potential topics, any one of which I just knew would be the perfect subject for the BEST.BLOG.POST.EVER. (Not really--but I was very enthusiastic about this blog--it was my baby; and after decades of dreaming of becoming a writer but never writing at all, I couldn't wait to write about EVERYTHING.)
I know I sound like a broken record here...but I really am going to try to get back to blogging more regularly. Really. Pinky swear. No more of this weeks-and-weeks in between posts. I'm not going to promise daily activity, because I have found that life gets in the way much too easily these days, so that's a promise I can't possibly keep. But I can do better. And I will.
But time really does fly when you're having grandchildren! They keep you young and they keep you entertained and they keep you busy. Our latest addition, a wee lad I'm going to call "Jedi" here at String of Pearls, was born to son #2 and his wife Ginger in mid-June, and we were able to attend his Baptism in early July.

This is the view my husband grew up with. Not too shabby, eh? (That's his older
sister, owner of Valcour Brewing Co., in the middle, one of his younger
brothers on the far right, and his brother's wife next to him.)
On the weekends, we clean our place and change all the linens as soon as one set of guests leave. Check-out is at 10:00 a.m. and check-in is at 4:00 p.m., so we have a six-hour window to get everything done for the next set of vacationers. It's exhausting but so worth it! (Because someday, hopefully, we'll be in a position to actually spend the summers here and have this little slice of heaven available to our kids and grandkids whenever they wish to visit!)

But Catholic bloggers are only called bloggers because they engage in an activity called blogging, so I'd better keep at it, right? No more neglecting this here blog of mine. I almost-promise.
