My sister and her two girls spent three days with us this week and we had a great time. Five kids is different than three are different than nine (which is what we had when my friend's four delightful kids joined us for the evening on Tuesday). The added busy-ness of the household lead to the sporadic posting, as you can well imagine. Things have slowed back down and, as usual, it feels good to fall back into our routine.
I have a couple of links to share with you. My wise friend Kim posted this the other day and it was a reality check I needed on several levels and I so appreciate her obedience to share what was on her heart. Sarah rocked the blogosphere with this post last week. I was cheering her on the entire time I was reading it. Then, there's this link. Blogger has come out with new ways you can view blogs. Follow the link and click on the blue button in the top right hand corner to view this blog in different ways as a means to explore different posts (if you're not sick of me yet). Some of the views are pretty cool.
In other blog-related news, I'll be posting next week about something new I've found that combines "local" with coupons. Can it be there is such a thing? Well, there is and I'll tell you all about it. I also have another "Worth It or Not?" post in the works to hopefully help with your what-to-make-for-dinner woes. And, if the rain lets up, I'll be posting some garden pictures to show you what we've been up to outside.
I'm going to leave you with a picture of my very favorite spring flower that happens to be a bush. Can you guess what it is? Have a wonderful, wonderful weekend, friends and thanks again for all your help this week. You girls (and Mr. H) rock.
