Circling Back To The Ranch

I know.  I know.

It's been FORever.

You've missed me.  I understand.

Yet, the hiatus has been good for me, which translates into:  it's been good for you.  You know - in an 'absence makes the heart grow fonder' kinda way.

Ok, who am I kidding?

AWOL.  No excuses.  :)

The important thing is . . . I'm back.

It was a culmination of events, ending in my standing in my driveway, back sidled up to the big oil-drum furnace-stove the GilGuy had built, complete with chiminea, that was roaring with a heat sure to singe my bangs if I were to lean over the door . . . if I had bangs.

I considered how much we've done/not done at Silver Oak Farm.

I considered how boring the things we've done must be to outsiders looking in.

And then, I realized that I had failed in my mission to allow my readership to live vicariously through me, regardless the [non]adventure, regardless of if *I* thought a matter was redundant, or boring, or . . . I should allow Choosers to determine whether or not they find a story thus.

Then, this post was born.

Because I had photos.

Of my new chickens.

Er, make that almost-pullets.

And my lettuce.

You see, today I counseled a would-be blogger not to pre-critique her post material.  "Let your work be for you ~ others will take note and follow, or not; it's not about them.  It's about your journal."

So, I'm back.  Again.  Since 2006 I've graced the 'net with my thoughts.  Many a rest stop along the way.

Today, there's chicks to nurture, and lettuce to eat, and blogs to write, and furnaces to stand by.

Let the blogging begin.

I'm glad you're back! Your (non)adventurous life is quite different than my (non)adventurous life. And I, for one, am quite envious at times. I wish I had the space and the time to grow lettuce. Your square gardens are an inspiration, but alas, I kill nearly everything I set out to grow. As for the chicks, I will live vicariously through you, as I am not a lover of fowl up close in my personal space. :-/
