I took an unintentional summer sabbatical from blog-writing because our calendar caught on fire. The flames have died down now.
The children and I went to Asheville, North Carolina this week! One of my dearest friends had a baby in July and we went down to help. I got a lot of baby-holding time, and cooked a lot of meals, and washed a lot of dishes. I also learned to light a gas stove!
The crepe myrtle was still in bloom.
We arrived home at dinnertime this evening, and Mr. Polly had dinner all ready for us. There was a blue heron in the pond and the cattle are in the pasture behind our house. I'm so happy to be home!
