I’ve Become a Bloga-phobic

It’s been so long that I don’t know how to get back into the swing of writing on here anymore. I’m afraid to see this big blank square staring at me just daring me to write. I can hear it goading me…”Na na naaaa – look at me – I’m big and white. There’s so much room to write and you don’t even know where to start. Look at you! Afraid a big white square…BOO!” And then I turn away from the screen wimpering quietly to myself.

Eh hem. I may have carried that on a little too far. I mean it is just a white square, right? Nothing to be afraid of. (it’s just a white square – it’s just a white square)

Seriously now, it’s not really fear.  It’s more like indifference.  Perhaps, it’s just because it’s summer.

So, to begin and end with I’ll record for prosperity my goings-on so far this season.  Not that there’s been soo much.  By design, thankfully, I don’t lead a hectic life, but here’s a synopsis none the less:

  • Put in a garden.
  • Neglected my garden.
  • Filled my pool.
  • Drained the pool (it was lopsided and leaking)
  • Filled the pool again.
  • Hosted picnics.
  • Mowed the lawn.
  • Drank some Ice Caps.
  • Went to barbecues.
  • Sat around the fire.
  • Sat around the pool.
  • Sat IN the pool.
  • Got a new lawn mower.
  • Had fun mowing the lawn.
  • Continued to neglect my garden.
  • Participated in a log cutting working bee on the hottest day of the summer.  I  mean we couldn’t have picked a hotter day!
  • Cooled off in the pool.
  • Drank more Ice Caps (did you know they go down from 11g of fat to – I think – 2g of fat if you request them to be made with milk instead of cream?).
  • Went to the splash park.
  • Began reading several books but haven’t settled on any.
  • Went on our 4th annual moms and kids camping trip.
  • Had a very small tantrum while setting up my ginormous tent.
  • Had a drink.
  • Finished setting up my tent with the help of Jennifer. (thanks, Jen!)
  • More sitting around the fire.
  • Freezed my butt off (I wish) splashing in the waves of the huge lake.
  • Drank a little.
  • Eh hem. Drank a lot.
  • Ate potatoe chips – Weight Watchers and I were on a short break.
  • Came home.
  • Mowed the lawn again – still had fun, though.
  • Enjoyed a rainy day at home kinda cleaning my house.

So, that’s it. You’re pretty much caught up. There may be a couple of things in there I’ve forgotten by you’ve got the jist.

I’ll try to write more…and read more.  If I feel like it, that is.  🙂

Some photos for your viewing pleasure…

    Hia lovely to hear from your again! That lake looks gorgeous. I was hoping you were just having a summer of fun and sun.

    Here in the UK we’re still waiting for the Summer to arrive- so much rain at the moment.

    Lovely to have you back!

    As a mom, a person (mom) tends to dismiss all the things we actually do in a day, week, month etc!! I think you have accomplished a lot! The camping trip was great! Can’t wait til next year!!!!!!

    It looks like you had a great trip. How fun. It would be nice if we could get a little more warm weather instead of this cold rainy stuff we have had the last week. Not to do wood in it, but to enjoy it.

    I think I missed out by not having an annual camping trip with some friends and their kids.

    How great is that!!!

    I know exactly what you mean. I’ve been writing…but it’s crap as usual! 🙂

    Keep on playing and mowing and neglecting. That’s the good part of life.

    Glad your back, but I think we all understand what a busy summer is like. I’m the same way with posts being few and far between.

    The water looks so nice! It looks more like the ocean than a lake to me though. Either way it looks great. Great job on the campsite. It makes me want to go camping!
