Imp, 19-months +

Took Cole in for a late well-check this morning. I left the stats at the office but he was 95% for height, 90% for weight and 50-75% for head size. Everything was just fine. Doc isn't concerned with his thumb-sucking or lack of language.

On another note....so thankful for the rain. My house was getting filthy. It seems like the only time it gets cleaned spring, summer & fall is when it rains.

Does anyone know a good source for writing prompts? Trying to get excited about this bloggy thing again but getting mighty tired of just posting pictures with captions. I used to be more interesting! At least I think. Hmmm. Maybe not.

I'm so thankful for my foodie friends. I adore you all. I'm very, very sad for these folks. The possibility of a factory farm being built very close to their home makes me cry. I hate our government. I'm leaning towards becoming a food activist. Watch for me in the pickets.

We've been busy burning out the stump in our backyard. While the bonfire is fun...it's too stressful for me. I'm looking forward to planting grass.

Jet-Black season is just about here. Cross your fingers for us that it's a good year.

Can't wait to get my daycare family back...we miss them! Plus, we're getting A BABY! I'm so excited. He may get just a bit spoiled because all I'll want to do is hold him!

All you crafty folks out there are inspiring me. I bought a few things to make a couple cute scarves I was lusting over at the mall. Need to blow the dust off my machine. A good rainy day activity, eh?

I'm currently reading a book that I'm head-over-heels in love with. I don't want it to end. I want to be best friends with the author. Wait...I think I actually want to be her. Look for it in the book reviews soon. Unfortunately. It's that delightful. If you're a foodie.

I miss this. I wonder how many readers I've lost in my lull?

I've never published anything I wrote from the prompts, but there might be something there to spark something :) Glad to have you back.

Oh, and in case it keeps you up at night wondering who posted and then deleted their comment like it does me...that was me. The link didn't show up for whatever reason ;)

I'm still here. :) And a fellow foodie as well. Have you watched "Fresh"? It's supposed to be a follow up to Food Inc. I can send you a copy if you're interested. I may be in the picket line with ya! :)

Shannon said...

Mindy said...

Shannon said...

mindy - let me know the date...janelle, if it works that we can do that you don't need to send me a copy!

Janelle said...

Ok. Just let me know. My hubby can burn a copy for you if you want.

sabrina said...

Shannon, good to have you back! I went through a major lull, too. Guess you could say I was depressed. Maybe it's the spring weather that perks us up?

Lani said...

Still here... what's the book? I wanna know!!!

Shannon said...

it's been posted on my booklist for a couple days now. i think one of the reasons i liked it so much is because i'm so much like her. at least the way she portrayed herself in the book.

Mj said...
