Oh, hey. Hi. It’s me.

15 Apr

Goodness gracious, it’s been a long (unintentional) blog hiatus over here with the gnomes. What has caused this, the great blog hiatus of the spring of 2015? Well …

+ There is work. Palm Sunday, Holy Week, Easter services, and Holy Humor Sunday with kazoos. All was good and well and (mostly) enjoyable.

+ I ordered some of my garden seeds (Popcorn! Sweet potatoes to experiment! Rainbow carrots!) and look longingly at my to-be tilled garden. I have also stooped and stared for minutes on end at the propagating succulents in my window. (Out of, oh, 30 leaves, three show signs of life. Holding out for a few more.)

+ I took a whirlwind trip to Indianapolis to accompany the sister as she interviewed at a grad school. Thursday: Drive home to WI. Jump in car with sister to IN. 10.5ish hours car time. Friday: Explore Indianapolis while sister interviews. Meet super fun people who send me around the city to the coolest shops. Return to WI. Saturday: Drive back to MN. Whirlwind indeed.

+ First bike rides!

+ Remember that Union Jack quilt of hexies I worked on forever ago? I pulled it out again. It might be finished one of these days …

+ Visitors! My mom and Jeff came for Easter. Fun included going out the night before Easter to a bar in order to watch the Badgers in the final four. (Lindsay has no cable.)

+ Easter crafts including gluing pom-poms to branches, salt dough ornament eggs, Easter throw pillows, and dying eggs.

+ Paper-piecing lots of diamonds, a birthday party for a super cute one year old, baking mini donuts in my new mini donut pans, watching mucho Friends, meeting new babies, and packing for a long weekend at the cabin!

I leave tomorrow for a little time away in the woods at the family cabin. Looking forward to great weather, disconnecting, and board games by gas light. And no bears. Please, no bears.
