I really haven't abandoned the blog, I promise. The quick updates are: Berkeley was great, Florida was awesome, and Sweden is about to be super. I leave tomorrow, and then a great yawning space opens up on my to-do list, with the major thing on it being the finishing of our book on coal and communication. I just happened to have been granted a sabbatical next spring to devote to that very job and I'm excited to have my day-to-day life be more regular and to have a major focus.
If that's how it all ends up working out.
Anyway: Sweden. And then my summer will begin a bit more for reals and one of my goals is to return to this space with more regularity. I want to post pics of our new deck and tell you about Peanut and my thoughts on nutrition and show you lots of pictures of these amazing girls. I have a 20-year high school reunion coming up, and a family reunion, and there will also be lots of laying around, I hope.
Maybe I'll even start sewing again. Or just allow things to be fallow for a while. It's been such a year. I'm so happy at the moment, and you know I tend to write less when I'm super-happy or super-sad. So you know: happy, for now.
See you soon!
