That's how long it has been since my last post here.
...and really? I don't even have a good reason.
It certainly isn't for lack of trying. I open my blogger account, I click the options that get me to a fresh, blank slate...
...and then nothing.
I tap my fingers on the keys, I think, trying to recall something funny or at least mildly entertaining.
And then in a fit of frustration, I give up. I close the window, shut my laptop and walk away.
It's as if my mind has been sucked completely dry by... well? a mind-sucker. A big, lumpy, hairy one. And again, if we're being honest, I often find that I just don't feel like I have anything worth sharing. Who wants to see *another* photo of my blue-eyed baby as we run through the motions of our day? Because sometimes I feel as though that's all I've got to contribute.
All this to say that I haven't gone anywhere. I haven't left Peanut's Page for greener pastures. I'm here, just feeling briefly contemplative. And quiet. Really, really quiet.
Keep with me, will you? While I collect my thoughts and try to get the ball rolling again.
I've got some ideas up my sleeve... a challenge to make some positive, 'green' changes to our lifestyle, some self-imposed changes for the new year for our little family, and the continuing saga of my photography habit. Oh--and more on my serious obsession with toys. Of the vintage, handmade, and wooden variety. Because they're so much more fun than what's available at Target!
