Many apologies for my long absence in writing and visiting.
Nothing is wrong - I'm just distracted, in a good way, by life.
Yellow finch at the feeder that I installed for Gerrit's pleasure last summer.
Tulips in the Queen's Garden
I've been here:
New Orleans for the high school graduation of my nephew.
Beautiful and beloved Wisconsin...
to attend the high school graduation of my nephew
(yes, 2 nephews graduating!
Luckily not the same weekend)...
...and to begin preparation of cakes and marzipan carrots
for a graduation party 2 weeks hence.
Then I was here:
in London, for a wonderful short trip with my brother, sister-in-law, and nephew.
Then we went here:
to The Hague, Netherlands (Royal Palace)
where we were met by Gerrit's older daughter Karin & her family
and then I went home with Karin
and did a little weeding in their big garden allotment
and a lot of catching up with the family.
And then back to Wisconsin...
to finish the cakes (carrot and strawberry) and attend the graduation party.
There is more, but right now I need to be on my way to O'Hare to meet Karin,
who is flying in to spend a week with my family
for our annual family vacation in Wisconsin.
It should be a happy week.
