April in absentia

 Not only have I been in absentia, but April itself seems to be among the missing as well.  It snowed again this morning.  At times it has almost seemed as if March and April's weather have somehow gotten switched around.  In March we had some lovely warm sunny days.  Daffodils in sheltered spots were on the verge of blooming.  In April so far we have had snow, sleet, temperatures in the teens and even single numbers,  freezing rain, gusty winds -- you name it.

I cannot believe we're eleven days into April and I haven't blogged once this month.  Not here, not on my Christmas blog (which I've severely neglected of late and on which I have much to share). Life is busy, busy, busy and stressful and it's hard not to feel overwhelmed. My hubby and I barely have time to think, so I don't have a lot of real substance to share on my blog these days anyway.  All of my serious thinking at the moment is going into my Sunday School lessons and other important responsibilities.  But I do have lots of pretty vintage cards to share on my Christmas blog, and many, many recipes to review and link to on this blog.  I've read lots of interesting posts on other blogs that I'd like to link to, but don't expect to find time for that anytime soon, if at all. 

Yesterday, though it was cool and windy, was a nice sunny day.  In the late afternoon, after we got home from church, Mr. T and I went for a walk downtown and stopped in at a thrift store I had not previously visited.  I found a fun vintage Pyrex bowl (late 1950s) for only $3 and hope I can eventually get the baked-on stains removed from it so I can enjoying using and displaying it.  For now, I can barely keep up with meals and laundry, never mind removing stains from vintage Pyrex, so that will be a project for another day. 

For now, I am ....


  1. Bless your heart Mrs T. We all have periods like this when the world just seems to press in hard on us. Prayers and Hugs to you!!

    1. Arlene, thank you! I tell you I can feel that hug across the miles all the way from Alabama!
