Where Has He Gone?

you might ask. You might think I've given up on this blog.

Not quite yet, but inspiration has been scarce. Maybe that's not the right word, but it gets the point across.

It's warm & 71° at the ol' homestead, with sunny, clear skies. It's the kind of day that Alaskans wait for, enduring months of winter weather and (usually) heavy snow, in hope of having such a summer.

We're both off today, and did our weekend shopping run this morning. Got home in time to grill a couple of rib-eye steaks for lunch, too.

Tomorrow is supposed to be 63 and rainy, but it's okay. We're enjoying hanging out at home, watching "Justified", and enjoying the relative peace and quiet. The neighbors are gone for the weekend, you see, so things are ... peaceful. It's a nice change of pace.

For the next dry spell, we're going to put a mess of brauts and hot dogs on the grill, followed by some chicken breasts and whatever else my better half picked up this morning.

Life is good. :)

Rev. Paul,

Enjoy having time off together, and a good steak :-)
When the weathers nice, good food, barbecuing, and family is what it's all about. Happy 4th of July to you and yours!!!

It's not that there isn't inspiration, per se,w it's just that it's all so tiresome and the professional talking heads talk about it endlessly. And so often incorrectly that you just want to say "Oh, bugger off!"

I hope you have a wonderful Fourth. Sometimes posting a great deal is difficult as it has already been said or there is not much to say.

Rev. Paul said...

Ed - I forget. Who's asking, again? :)

Senior - I hear you. Our daughters are grown now, but it wasn't that long ago ... Good days.

Chickenmom - and to you!

Sandy - you nailed it. Alaska typically gets far less "good summer weather" than do places farther south, so we tend to stay outside a lot. Besides, it's still light for 23.5 hours. :)

PH - that's it, exactly. I've wearied of repeating myself, and feel like I'm preaching to the choir anyway.

TB - that's also true.

Not me, I've not wondered such a thing!

I'll wait...

Hope you had a happy Independence Day.

Guffaw - thank you, and you too!
