I got home late last night from my trip East.
It was so wonderful to be there,
visiting with people who are so dear to me
during my favorite time of year.
The whole thing was lovely.
And now I'm back home
with my house full of knucklehead boys who I missed so much.
They had a good time living like bachelors together
but all seemed happy that I was back.
Especially Lou, who hasn't left my side today.
This week, we'll be focusing on our little family,
cooking and cleaning,
baking and knitting,
grading and lesson planning,
raking and planting,
and settling into the heart of the season.
And on Thursday, there's a chance of snow - what could be better?
