still here

Despite all appearances to the contrary, I am still around. Let's see, what's happened in the last week that has kept me from a blog post?

There was a farm booth at the local fiber festival. It went really well and was a lot of fun.

Yes, I am living with a teenage goofball.
He jumped into the shot just before I pressed the shutter.

There was a breed display at the same festival. It went really well too.

Look at the left of the photo; first place!

At the moment, half of the inventory from the festival is still sitting in our living room and the other half is still in the cab of the truck.

Because the morning after I got home, the younger two finally went off to school.

We had to take their pictures in shifts -- no more group first day shots!
Their buses come one hour apart, so as one is leaving,
we are waking the next shift up. It is now a three hour process.

People were asking me last week if I was homeschooling them, that's how late this school year start was. Not that I have anything against homeschooling them, but it just so happens that I was really eager to get them the heck out of the house, as I had another large project due today. I have been picking away at this project for weeks now, but the final part really required the peace and quiet only possible when the house is kid-free.

The deadline was today, and I made it -- despite the fact that I was kid-free for only one day, because Primo has been home sick since then.

If everyone could keep their fingers crossed on the disposition of this project, that would be awesome. I can't talk about it just yet, but I will give you a tiny little hint:

And that's all I'll say about that.


  1. Kris-
    We've been back to school for almost 4 weeks now-ugh! Hate the getting everyone out of bed and out of the house on time routine! Quick question on some of the things you had pictures of from the Fiber Festival-do you still have any cards or pins? I would love to buy some. My aunt was involved with 4H with my cousin raising sheep and although my cousin is now 24, my aunt is still involved and helping out. I think she would love some of the things you had picts of. E-mail me ( let me know what you have and how much they are-if it's ok. :-)

  2. *gasp* can't wait to hear more!
