Where have I been? I've been in Busyland.

Hello all my GS friends. I know it's been a very long time since I've been around, and I sincerely apologize for that. But this was my first semester of teaching and it was far crazier than I ever expected. It was busy enough just being a regular English teacher, but I also got pulled in to be the new faculty sponsor for the drama club. That meant working late each night as I helped my students prepare for various weekend speech and drama meets, plus planning, producing, and praying about the fall school play. The kids did a marvelous job with "To Kill a Mockingbird." My husband and I hosted the after-party when it was all over. On top of all that, my husband and I chaperoned two school dances. Thankfully they don't have a problem with a husband and wife dancing together... because we did :)

Christmas was wonderful. It has me all excited about next summer's garden. I'd mentioned, last summer, that it would be nice to eventually be able to start canning what I grow. So for Christmas my wonderful and thoughtful husband gave me everything I need to start. I'm anxious to start doing that. I'll spend the rest of the winter reading up on technique and recipes.

I'm excited to be gardening again. Right now my garden is under snow. I think winters make it easy to forget how much weeding had to be done at the start. That's okay. I still want to start growing again. My husband, who doesn't want to "get involved" in the garden is already discussing how we can best expand it for the next summer. That's a two-edged sword. More garden space = more produce = more weeding.

Anyhow, I hope everyone had a blessed Christmas and I wish you all a happy New Year to each of you and your families.
