We made some new friends yesterday. :-) I'm really terribly at making friends. People intimidate me. But Ashley met a girl she thought I should meet, so we went to the park for a playgroup with her and a few other moms, and everyone was great. A little bit earthy-mama type, but not so much that they were snobby, which is rare, and was nice. Most of them homeschool, and there was even another five year old that was just starting kindergarten this year. Chloe had a great time playing with her. We're gonna start going back every Tuesday for this group, and a couple of them want to learn to knit. Getting out and doing things is good for me, especially with the Phantom Husband back to work this week.
Speaking of the Phantom Husband, he hunted pretty much all week last week. Didn't get anything, but he had a good time, so I guess that's good. I'm really hoping for an elk. You just can't beat totally organic red meat like that. He's back to work for two weeks now, and then he'll go back out. It sounded like he was pretty close a time or two, but didn't quite have the shot he needed. It would be great if he'd get something right away on his next week off so we can spend some time with him, too.
It's almost fall. You can feel that crisp-air feeling in the mornings now. Yesterday it was cool enough that we needed sweaters at the park, and it's still dark as I type this, a little after six in the morning. Seasons changing always make me happy. I dont know that I'm quite ready for winter yet, but the cooler days of fall will be nice. Where on earth did the summer go? I feel like it shouldn't be over yet!
I'm trying to figure out what I used to write about... the desire to write just hasn't been with me for a few weeks now. I guess I'll leave this at that and be finished.
One note: Carol asked about the homeschool link I'd posted in a previous post. It's something like "Hidden Creek Homeschool" if you Google it, but the words "this site" in my post about it are a link to the blog. For whatever reason, my blog layout doesn't show that text is linked, which is lame because I link a lot of things people probably aren't seeing. I suppose it's time for a new blog layout... as soon as I have more time to sit down in front of the computer!
