It *has* been a month...

Happy Valentine's Day, mes amies!

Those of you who are newer to my blog and have not read my website fully (yet) might enjoy some of my past thoughts on Valentines in my Le Monde section (scroll down to "Not-So-Sweet Valentines").

As for why there has been such radio silence from attack laurel land, well, we got laid low with colds after Kingdom A&S (I'm getting a bug per event these days, what is it with the plague monkeys loose across the land?!), but more importantly, Bob got laid off (it's okay, we had this eventuality in mind) and we're retiring to the farm a year earlier than planned.  Like, March.

So, it's been packing boxes and running stuff down to the house (we're trying out "Dogwood Farm" for a name; farming dogwoods sounds like fun, and we have tons of free-range ones in the woods), and getting sick, and packing more stuff, and making arrangements, and no time for doing much more than sitting on the sofa in a stupor at the end of the day.  I'm still working, too.  And there's other stuff in the pipeline, and I don't think we have a free weekend from now until the end of the world.

I've had posts in my head, believe me; they just don't get transferred to the computer (speaking of which, we can't have an interruption in intarwebs service since Bob is teaching; does anyone know where to get/borrow a cheap laptop?).  My haid, she is brimming with wit and wisdom and random existential blurtings, oh when shall I sit down and inflict them on y'all?  Woe.

Anyway, I thought I needed to update.  So there it is.

Random aside - apparently those berries make decent jam too!

I love Dogwood Farm. We were sorry Bob got laid of but I'm so happy that you will be able to down to your lovely farm earlier than expected. :)

Get well soon!

Congrats on the retirement and I do love the name of Dogwood Farm!

Will a mac do?

Um, I'm not sure. We just need to be able to hook up to the intarwebs down at the farm, then transfer that hookup to our big computer once we are fully moved.


(and thanks!)

Depending on what Bob needs the laptop for a little netbook might be a good purchase. They can come as cheap as $250 and are small and compact. Not a lot of memory, and they don't have a cd drive usually (though external drives with USB plugs can be used). They word process, run programs, and browse the internet. They're sort of perfect for students, but they may suit his needs and are definitely inexpensive as far as computers go. You can find them at electronic type stores (duh) but also places like CostCo (if you have that in your area, it's a bulk warehouse store).

Sounds like you could use some good Karma. And maybe some soft tissues. Holding you in my thoughts.

Sorry to hear it was unplanned, but can't think of a thing wrong about a permanent weekend at the farm. "Dogwood" sounds good, very Virginian. And we can certainly use all the reasonable people we can get down here; the doody-heads have been getting more active of late.
