Looking through my pictures from the past week I was amazed at how much has happened in so few days.
I have a half-dozen possible posts here at least, but typing is still tragically slow so one short post will have to suffice.
The past week was ordinary, yet somehow also extraordinary.
Because somewhere between sunrise and sunset, honey bees and fish stories, fog and spring peepers, newborn lambs and newly pierced years, I celebrated my 41st birthday beside a campfire in the woods with my family.
It was a happy birthday indeed.
And I've made another trip around the sun. For that I'm so thankful.
I just got one more year. To do this.
Somebody pinch me.
P.S. Thank you for your patience as my blog – and many others – was down and unpublishable for most of a week. I'm hoping my site stays up, but Typepad has had a really challenging few days. Down since Thursday after a pretty aggressive attack, I'm hoping this colossal virtual mess is sorted out for good!
And I'm so happy to be back.

Dealing with the Typepad issue myself. Great photos – awesome colors in the burning branch! We picked up our package of bees on Saturday – sharing today on my blog.
The ordinary is so, so extraordinary. Isn’t it? That’s been one of the gifts of midlife for me, realizing that. xox
Happy beautiful birthday Mama!
Oh that photo of you and lamb; So fun!!!!
