Which is because I keep waiting for the perfect time to sit down and write this - not because I have any major news, but because the world continues to greatly disappoint me and quite frankly, I've been struggling with that. A lot. I've also been struggling with getting older - my birthday was last month - and a new part of me aches every damn day. (Cliches are cliches because they're true!)
But our lives have been busier than ever - since the start of the pandemic at least - with our house full of family, and our jobs keeping us on our toes. I've really been trying to find some sort of daily rhythm. I keep working on finding balance where I can, but I've always had a hard time knowing when to rest, and lately it's harder than ever.
So I'm just doing my best, taking it one day at a time, and relishing the…

The community of birbs in our backyard have been endlessly amusing. Who knew doves were so ridiculous?
