What's that up in the air?

Well, peeps, judging from the handful of replies to my last post, I'm not convinced there's enough interest in re-starting Scribble Picnic yet! It seems, at best, more people might be able to commit once we get through these dog days of summer, possibly? So, at this point, we're going to leave it be and, if you want, I can simply ask again once September comes around.

As it is, that's probably for the best as with every year for all of us, summer's a busy time. Alex and I, as a case in point, will be back in Colorado for my youngest's wedding and then off to England on some super cheap tickets we actually bought last year, long before we knew all the unexpected changes that were to arise later. On the plus side though, we can use a portion of the trip for business as we have some potential opportunities there that could be quite exciting. Naturally, too, I want to see my remaining family there since 3 years ago.

Frankly, since then (when we went to take care of my mother), things have certainly not been boring, must say — quite the adventure — but we're exhausted taking care of others that we'll be ready to start to carve out some time for our own lives too...and place to call home again!

I hope everyone's summer is going well. Feel free to leave comments. I'll check in as able. Thanks to each of you who were able to leave comments and don't forget that Rain has her weekly art challenge too! In the meanwhile, while not feeling nearly as hot as humid Kentucky, the reality is that today was an incredible 107F so I'll be chillin', literally, as much as able. Thankfully, tonight the temps plunge down again with the promise of that lovely Delta breeze that so thrills and surprises me. :)

See you in September, if not sooner! :)



  1. Ugh. I had an entire comment typed and it disappeared! I was *trying* to say... how wonderful that you two get to visit your family in the UK! We are toying with a trip to England to see Richard’s family... maybe next summer? It’s so unfortunate that it costs an arm and a leg these days. We are really having a hard time swallowing the potential cost of a trip for this family of FOUR to fly there and have somewhere halfway decent to stay! It’s going to cost a fortune!

    I hope you have a wonderful time at your son’s wedding — how special! Enjoy every second.


  2. Will stay posted and see what you decide on Scribble Picnic!
