I can't escape the feeling of being neglectful of things. I haven't blogged much at all this year and I know I'm going to regret it later because I so like to go back and see all that the year held.
However, our year got off to kind of a rocky start. Phoebe was sick, and then we had the water leak and had to undergo major construction on our first floor. The stress of that mess and then the getting unpacked and settled back in took much of my efforts and left little time or even patience for other things.
Then, our spring was cold and I didn't feel much like getting outside to do anything in the flowerbeds, and just overall felt like I needed a break from things. Plus, with all rain, the mosquitos are pretty bad this year. So, our yard has suffered and it makes me sad.
Although we have had plenty of beautiful butterflies and hummingbirds, (they don't mind the sad state of things) I haven't even taken many pictures of them this year.
Time has flown by and it seems summer is coming to an early end. The good news is that now I may actually be able to get outside and spruce things up a bit!
I've done some organizing projects, painted our master closet, and have done a few crafty things but it's time to get my butt in gear. I'm starting to get excited about fall and Halloween and have a bunch of things planned for the house, the yard, and for crafting. Let's see if I can be a better blogger too.
