I've been a less-than-attentive blogger for the last month or so.
And I apologize for not visiting you as often as I wished.
It's because of all the changes.
First, the move from our fall/winter/spring home in Florida
to our summer place in Iowa.
We're "learning" everything all over again, getting re-acquainted with our new old place.
Finding the answers to where we keep the cereal bowls,
the shaker of lemon pepper, and the dish detergent.
It's a simple place~~short on material possessions, humble and practical.
A good thing, we note, when we see the many shifting properties
and busy schedules of our children's growing families.
Our bedroom is a sanctuary after attending ballgames, birthday parties, and family runs~~
a soft place to fall after a day or two of helping with a garage sale
meant to clear irrelevant goods from our son's house. More space is needed for their active toddler.
And then there's the big change across town~~our daughter
and her family are packing up all of their earthly possessions for a move to a larger house~~
changing schools, neighbors, living spaces, and day-to-day routines.
We're about to pitch in on the transfer of goods.
