Yes, we are alive...


Has it really been since April 10 since I last posted anything? Well, apparently so. Sorry.

I needed a little "me" time. I basically shut down all non-essential things in my life for awhile - it was the stress of closing a business. If you haven't figured out by now, the economy is taking a big down-turn. We laid off employees, circled the wagons and hunkered down for a month or so.

Things are looking much better. Charlie was offered a rather high-paying job from a client, and accepted. The garden is rocking. Monkey just started summer vacation. And you wouldn't believe how big the puppy has gotten. He's a monster. A golden-eyed, shoe-stealing, monster.

The Monkey and I are taking off for summer camp today, but will be back to the farm in a week. I promise to post more frequently and am thinking of wonderful things to write. (I actually had several fantastic posts that never were written in May...)

I'm excessively happy with the results of the Democratic primary and the winner of American Idol by the way....


  1. Glad to hear things are sunny. Not sure I agree with one of your last statements ;-P but hey, another wang-doodle-bearer in the White House, why break tradition now?

  2. I found your blog through a Seattle connection. North Carolina is a beautiful state and I'm going to enjoy reading more. Eating local is going to get challenging this year, as we're having the coldest, wettest season ever.
