I’ve been away for what feels like a very long time.
Entertaining my visitors from Holland and playing tourist became a full time job. Now that my cousin has returned home, I’m vaguely feeling a bit at loose-ends.
It’s time to reassemble my normal routine, however I’m not really sure what that means to me right now. *Normal* over the past several weeks has been a mad flurry of daily activity.
From a wet, watery visit to Niagara Falls where I discovered my cousin’s delightfully wicked sense of humour …
… a giggly shopping trip at Kensington Market …
… to a step back in time at Black Creek Pioneer Village …
… and the unhappy find of a very tiny baby bird slowly frying in the sun on the hot pavement.
I have hundreds of photos that have captured the memories of our time together and the many new things that even I was experiencing for the first time.
As I look around me this morning, I see that my house needs cleaning and the weeds are running amok, appearing to have organized for a messy coup of the territory.
One thing I know for sure. *Normal* will include a return to my small corner of WordPress.
While it is true that I got a HUGE amount of stuff done in the past 6 weeks without the distraction of blogging, I miss the sharing, the story-telling, and the interaction with people I think of as friends.
I’m back … although it might take a while to find *normal* again.
