A Good Month

How on earth has a month gone by? I'll tell you how:

Getting ready for a visit from grandparents,


Eating, and walking, and shopping, and visiting, and fishing, and cooking, and running, and eating, and showing off chickens, all with grandparents.

Then, sliding into a Pioneer Woman book signing with friends, Christmas preparations, having our hot tub removed and deck rebuilt (It's done, hooray!) and getting Christmas lights up, and the house decorated, and lists made for Christmas shopping.

Then stopping suddenly, now that Grayson has bronchitis and is under house arrest/quarantine for a week at least, so we're housebound and not really minding,

except that it's hard to shop for Christmas and everything else when I'm home and banned from anywhere with people. Which is, of course, everywhere.

Today we're also rescuing a rogue rooster who was discovered in our field this morning, bloody from a fight with the turkey, and freezing in the 16 degree temps. Caiden carried him into the shop in our barn to warm up a little and see if we can revive him. So now he's convalescing, as well.

Then there's homeschooling, of course, and paying bills and cleaning and everything else, and somehow a month went by.

It has been a fast month, but a good month.

I just hope the next one slows down a little, you know?


  1. So glad to see that you have been busy doing those things that you love. Missed you around here though.

    Hope Grayson feels better. We too are staying home due to a little one with bronchitis. Times of refreshing!

  2. I have missed your posts. Glad you have enjoyed life and hope Grayson is on the mend.

  3. Good to see you back! I missed hearing about what's going on in your neck of the woods.

    Hope Grayson is well soon! (and the rooster too.)

  4. yes, how is your running going? :) did you ever sign up for a 1/2? i cannot remember. and you got to go to PW's book signing? how exciting! i was hoping to go this past monday nite but did not quite think the boys would enjoy waiting hours upon hours since they all would have had to accompany me. i'm assuming that was a pretty good call. hope y'all have a Merry Christmas!

  5. Good to hear from you again, and glad it was such a rich, full month. Praying you little one is better soon.

  6. Hey Renee! The running is on again, off again--no 1/2 for me this year, but I'm hopeful about 2010! And you made a good choice on the PW signing--we didn't stay, because there were still 500 people in front of us at 10:30 p.m.! I think she signed until past 2 a.m. that night!! I hope all is well with you :)

  7. So glad to hear from you- I imagined that you were locked in your sewing room churning our Christmas gifts:-) Enjoy the forced quarantine, it will give you a good excuse to curl up by the fireplace, and I strongly suggest online shopping. It is the best, espceically with little ones to tote around!

    Merry Christmas!

  8. Hey girl! Glad you are well. I just figured you were as busy as the rest of us :).

  9. You do know we're coming next week right and so of course it will be hectic again and the days will fly.... rogue rooster - love the sound of that!

  10. Blessings to your fam, Sarah. I hope G feels better soon.

  11. take a trip and come run the nashville 1/2 with me in april! i'm shooting for it - we'll see if it happens.


Thank you for your comment!
