Nothing to say

Isn't funny.  I go to a writer's conference, come home feeling excited about writing and then proceed to write nothing for almost 2 weeks.  My mind is blank for blog post thoughts.  This morning I went on a walk hoping to get my mind flowing as I have come up with many of my posts on runs.  While it was a lovely walk I had no deep thoughts during it.

Truthfully I do have a few thoughts but I just haven't had the time or energy to put them together and express them.  Hopefully soon.

It is the end of the summer and I think the heat has turned my brain to mush.  But in a good way.  I am enjoying these last weeks of busy activities, warm weather and time at home with my children.

Last weekend we did sneak away for a family trip to a friend's cabin.  It was wonderful and eventually I will do a post about it.  In the mean time I finally took some pictures of folly and crisis to put on my blog header.  However, after spending a couple hours trying to figure out how to stitch a group of pictures together like my SIL did on her blog and then finally getting something decent created it was so large it didn't fit on the page.  So when she returns from her family vacation I will be bringing my laptop over for a little help.

In the mean time here are the pictures of wonderful children.  My inspiration for each day.

This is the collage I made.  Aren't they cute?  It is perfectly sized here but gigantic when I put it up top.


  1. Love the pictures of your beautiful children or should I say handsome Jake and beautiful Isabelle.

  2. that is the cutest pic ever of the alone one of isabelle...a framer for sure, no need to have a school pic done this year, they won't get better than that!

  3. Ah Mel, It makes me feel good that even though I haven't been in the professional world and "needed" to use a computer in 8 years, I still have some mad computer skillks. I think maybe it's more of that I'm a tenacious info. finder. :) Here's the website that I found to make my collage. I think the 5th or 6th picture down she shows how to save the collage on your computer and have the right pixel size to fit on a blog. Love the pictures of the kids. I love that the "uh-oh" is in there. The 3rd child, needs to be cleaned and loved just as much as the other ones do. :)
