I took an unexpected blogging break this month. Between spring on the farm, work projects and a little getaway, a lot of things were taking my attention.
I am still here.
One of the books I read this month was What Comes From Spirit by Richard Wagamese. This quote spoke to me:
Even though I haven’t been writing here on the blog, I have been writing.
It is nice to be back here, sharing my thoughts and some of what we’ve been up to.
The highlight of the month was a getaway with Matt’s family to Manitoulin Island. If you’re looking for a peaceful, private spot surrounded by nature, I highly recommend Rainbow Lodge. Fun fact: it had a previous life in a CBC show.
This chocolate cake was yummy, despite its weird ingredient list.
This book was heart-warming and fairly light. I had to hide it so I could actually do some work, or else I would have read it all at once.
It was lovely to have our little holiday away. However, there is no place like home.
This week I’m hoping to take some time to catch up on projects around the farm and with some family and friends. It’s also election week in Ontario, so I will be voting. If you live in Ontario, I hope you will too. I’m considering winding up the week with our first bonfire of the year–a big part of my summers for the last two years.
