Which I am sure has come to your attention.
I hate to admit it but the fair and the post-fair duties just sucked me dry. A really rotten summer cold didn't help matters much. And of course there's this darn heat wave... The dry spell in the weather here has parched my entire being, it seems.
So here I sit, ten days later and still I can't think of anything to write.
I will have to do the cowardly thing and refer you to a much more frequently-updated blog until the creative juices start flowing again. Old Picture of the Day is a delight and luckily the guy seems to have much more perserverance than I do. I found this blog when I was looking for pictures of Grace Coolidge, and now I am addicted. Every week he chooses a theme and posts old pictures around that theme. We got into a debate with another family as to whose son looked more like the kid on the left in this photo. They said Secondo, we said their son!
The domestic activities ones a few weeks ago were wonderful and gratitude-inspiring. They are worth paging back a bit to find.
This one from yesterday had me giggling uncontrollably, in part because I was so glad to see that we are not the only ones who get ourselves into these fine messes. (It's a long read but well worth it for a tale of do-it-yourselfness gone awry.)
And in the meantime I will prod my subconscious into coughing up something. Anything.
