Today we woke to another dusting of snow.  While I know many of you have had more snow than you ever thought possible, we have had very little this winter.  For whatever atmospheric reason, snow has passed us over.  Usually, we have 3+ good snows storms a year, sprinkled with a few smaller ones, but this year our grand total is about 5 inches.  Not good.

Sooo…..have you ever had one of those weeks?  Where you have it all planned out…workouts, meals, blog posts?  Then one child gets sick, then another and another.  All plans go out the window, and you spend that well planned week making soup, monitoring fevers and watching endless movies snuggled up on the sofa.  Well, that would pretty much sum up the first part of January for us.  At the end of that week full of sickness, my youngest boy had a birthday.  He requested a chocolate layer cake with ‘fluffy, chocolate frosting’.  His request included making the cake, as he saw his brother do last spring.  Of course, I planned to photograph and share it here with all of you.  After a week of fevers, none of that happened.

Well, it’s been a little quiet around here the last couple of weeks.  Not for lack of trying or ideas to share.  Life has gotten busy as of late, as it seems to in the fall.  While there are days I shake my head and wish for a quieter calendar and less hustle and bustle, I know that in a month or two, when winter blows in with its’ cold and snow, our hibernation (of sorts) will begin and things will slow down.  So for now, we are soaking up the busy-ness, evenings of soccer,  fall sunshine, crisp mornings, the ever-changing colors of the trees & fields and hunting down pumpkins and apples at the farmers’ market like it’s our job.
