WOW This past two weeks (week and a half?) have been HARD without my blog.
I never really knew how much I loved it, I guess...
or, depended on it, rather...
But we'll analyze the health of mine and internet's relationship later.

Let me tell you what I've done!
I've been living in Mamaw's new little house with no electricity, no fridge, and no showers. I was bathing in a pan full of kettle-heated water by candlelight.
There's a good way to start the blisteringly hot summer!
But now, after finally getting electric, typing on the computer next to the running air conditioner,
I feel a million times better.
Camping is fun,
but only in the fall,
and for a day.

But now that's over.
The good news is that I now know how to survive in the wilderness, make Granny's Gravy, 30 Minute Pot Roast, how to sew on buttons, make a baby quilt, and make my own homemade laundry soap. 
I'm pretty much a woman now. 
a Woah-Man.

Unfortunatly I don't have any photos really. There is honestly very little to photograph. Mamaw's old house had all her pretty flowers and her huge garden, but there's a lot of moving debris around.

But tomorrow is our family reunion at my grandpa's house! And then me, mom, my stepdad, and the baby Sadie are going to Missouri!! To Stephens College!! And it's going to be great, and I'll have plenty of pictures from there,
and I will be so so excited to show them to you.

And how completely rude of me-
Welcome all my new readers! I was so happily surprised to see my numbers rise a little bit. It's funny how I attract more attention when I'm not around haha. Maybe I should abandon my blog more often. It's easier and way more fun when you're blogging to someone, and not just to yourself. It's vain of me, but it's honest.

So, I will update again in a few days! Look for me on Tuesday.
I hope your all's summers are going splendidly so far! I can't wait to sit down and browse through all your posts that I've missed and see your adventures.

Also- wish me luck on Monday! I'll be meeting with my admissions counselor's about a
New Way Fun Project...
more on that later ;)

love, rudi

    "Whoa man!!"
