I've been away from the blog, yes, but not away from town. Rather I've been all about town with my family, sisters, brother, nephew, parents, and friends. My sisters were both in town at the same time, by coincidence! It was the perfect excuse/reason to step away from the computer desk (lovely as it is) and enjoy the people who bring out the best in me, my family.
I've already started re-grouping by mopping the floors, the whole house needs a good once-over. I'm teaching a workshop at a conference in a few weeks and need to begin preparing in earnest. The yard, full of happy birdsong, is beckoning too!
So, in as much as I was "away", I'm back now. How've you been?
