Where in the world is Donna @ Way More Homemade?

Yes, I'm here.

And I'm not.

I've been having a hard time lately finding where blogging is fitting into my life right now. And I'm also seeing where it isn't.

As I said back a few weeks ago, I'm trying to live life. While doing so has led me part of that has involved me not spending so much time on my computer while I am at home.

Time is short these days, it seems. However, now, with school having started, while I will miss the lazy days of a relaxed schedule in the summer, getting back to a routine should do me some good. I hope that writing will work its way back into my routine.

I am also seeing that while there is a lot going on in life right now, there is a lot going on that need not be discussed here. At least not specifically. It is a difficult thing to navigate; trying to be creative about what to write while being totally consumed by things that cannot be written about.

I have recently come up with several posts that are just dying to be written. And soon before the ideas go right out of my head. But I would have to have time in the day to sit down and write. We'll see if that happens sometime soon. And if I can make myself sit at the computer instead of in front of the TV after the kids are in bed.

Until then, dear friends, I hope to post some of my recent Bread Baker's Apprentice creations and I'll also be participating in Bake at 350's Flavor of the Month again this month (our flavor is lemon/lime - my mouth just watered as I typed that.... Pavlovian response much?).

So if you're still reading here, please be patient with me and I'll get back to it. I hope to have some new material posted soon and will also try to pull some old favorites from the archives.

Thanks for hanging with me y'all.

Donna, know that you have a friend here in CO, who is praying for you--the written and the unwritten.

I am paring back on blog writing myself and doing a bit of creative writing just for...hmm...maybe just for me. Or maybe for a book. We'll see!

Love to you!!

There seems to be a lot who are taking a semi-break from blogging. I always thought August was a crazy month with school starting, gearing up for the county fair, etc. Sometimes something's gotta give. We are not super women and we can't do it all. So the "me" things -- like blogging -- go first.

And life happens, and sweeps you along, and sometimes it's easier to lay back in the boat and let the current carry you than try to row to a specific spot.

You'll know when you've reached the point and need to stop, cut back, or charge full speed ahead. :-D
