At rest

I'll be taking some time off from this blog at least until the weekend. Maybe longer.


One of the ironies of having a nature blog, as I'm sure many of you have experienced, is that sitting at the computer, crafting posts and sorting through photos, robs you of the thing you may love most: time spent out in nature. It also robs you of time for doing other things.

I have a huge stack of books that have recently been added to the collection that need my attention. There are zuke breads to be baked, blackberries to be picked and made into jam. And other tasty things to be done in the kitchen.

And sometimes one just needs quiet. I'm going into one of those phases right now. And so... I'm off to be quiet for a while. I'll check in with you all when I can.

I completely understand, we will be here when you come back! I too feel that I "must" blog. I have oodles of photos from vacation, but not I'm not feelin' it at the moment. I made zuke bread, bread and butter pickles, pesto, and dilly beans the other day. The garden is producing! Have fun!

I hope you are enjoying your time off, Heather. You are right, we need it, or else we don't have anything to give.
