This is the extent to which I am even speaking to the blog. I am taking it back to the basics of the invention. A journal. No one is reading, and I have lost my soul, as it were. I wrote because I loved it. I read because I loved finding out there were people who were thinking about the same things I do.
I got all confused with writing to please a reader. So they would come back. Then I thought I’d monetize. But before I got to that I thought I’d participate with sponsors. I am not good. I am bad at it. I freeze.
I guest posted. I guess I did that wrong,too. I think I was supposed to bust it out on social media more than I did. I didn’t hear back from them.
At this point, it’s hard to remember why I’m blogging. My delight went somewhere. The blog is going back to basics.
THIS IS WHO I AM AND THIS IS WHAT’S GOING ON:
After a big weekend, we are “at the school table”. Inexplicably, I have known the answer to the questions, today. The questions are seldom content based, but rather, a distraction from getting down to business(Touchdown “*Bleep*ville Twist-offs!).
There is only one orthodontist appointment, this week. Only three scheduled in the next month; including surgery.
One child has decided what she wants to study for life!!! Victory! The week before, she was planning to live off mom and dad until a pop star or Small British Olympian swept her off her feet. (Hard to do when they’re propped up on the couch.) She wants to be a foreign language translator and is planning to study French, Spanish, and Chinese. Which is awesome.
Over the weekend, we still had peaches from our trip to the roadside stand and needed to use them before they spoiled. We made a cobbler and some preserves.
Let sit 12-18 hours. Cook down. Pour boiling mixture into prepared jars. Cook in hot water bath boiling 15 minutes.
Again, a lot easier than I would have thought.
We had more peaches even than that, so the sister, who didn’t work on the preserves because she was mowing the whole yard* by herself for the first time, showered and made a peach cobbler that we shared with our small group yesterday. It didn’t get a photo. Sorry, but it just would have made your mouth water. So, it’s probably for the best.
