L.M.M Reading Challenge

     It's that time of the year again.  Time for Reading To Know's Lucy Maud Montgomery January reading challenge.  7 long this even has been in existence.  I've decided that this year I am going to introduce my older two to Anne girl.  My favorite literary character ever.  Anne and I go back some 23years.  She is an old friend.  I've been anxious to introduce her to my children and while the littles are too young, the older crew is old enough.

Coming Home

     I've been away for such a long time.  I have long missed writing and though repeatedly about coming back.  Writing is a way of release for me.  NO matter how much I have wanted to come back I've hesitated.  What would it matter?  Who might I touch? Would anyone start reading?  What do I have to offer?  Does it matter?  Writing on a former blog was a way to keep in touch with family when at 9 months pregnant and with an 10 month old on my hip, my husband and I moved across the country.  I'm near my family again so that reason/purpose is non existent. 
It matters to me though.  A place to slow down, recharge, share crafting ideas, gardening ideas, schooling ideas.  A place to connect with others. 
     With that said, I say hello to my old friend.  Words.  There is much I want to share.  Changes we've made in life.  Changes to the way I school.  New members of our family.  The loss of another member that I hope to remember here.  If you've read this, welcome.  Welcome to my little nook.
