Our World, This Moment

This has been a weird winter. Mostly warm, a little rain and not much of note. There hasn’t been the backslide into depression I normally undergo but it’s not February yet, so there’s still time. Yay.

Recently my daughters and I went to New York City for a few days. It was fun and there’s probably a blog post in it. I also am actively horse shopping. My daughter has almost outgrown her pony and soon we may also be shopping for another mount for her. We can’t seem to rent our country house and so we are going to use it for a weekend home where we have a riding ring, fewer mosquitos and more quiet.

My oldest child is now one quarter of a century old. Not sure how things moved so quickly. So here we are, with a new semester at our homeschool enrichment program beginning soon, a Valentine’s Ball and 4H activities to keep us busy.

There was a time when blogging was a much needed outlet for me due to extreme social isolation. Now, even though I’m only slightly less isolated, the blogging doesn’t seem to have the same kind of effect. Blogs that focus on one subject can be informative but are generally boring reading for day-to-day interest. Mommy blogs are great for relatives but none of ours read this one. Food blogs can be fun but with a kitchen like the one we have here there won’t be anything happening on that front for a while. Ages, probably.

But we have a new roof, a new year, a new semester and all of culturally approved newness must mean something good. Right?

Oh, and the seed order will be here soon. Real Yay! this time.
