a return to the real

oh dearies. it has been too long.
but right now as the rain hums outside my window and the wee one sleeps deeply above me i am able to get a bit of the old me back. i am at my breakfast nook window with the laptop and a cup of french pressed coffee, a scone half eaten beside me.
i have already washed my face, scrubbed my teeth and put on the clothes of the day.
the dishes are done, a load of laundry is brewing and all the baby things are picked up and put away.
i have discovered that the saying:"a place for everything and everything in it's place"
is not a mere suggestion but a mantra.
it is the only sane way to get through the day around here between trying to sew, run a household and smile and laugh with baby em.
i miss my friends. online and offline. the offline friends are free to stop by now and again or drop a line...but dear inter-nest friends how i miss our comments, light emails, and blogswaps.
taggies and no tag backs.
i hope that this is the fall of getting back into the swing of it...cos my arm is out of practice
my mind is blooming with possibilities.
to alla my internest friends out there- a big "hello, how's it been"
"me- i'm doing fine."
