fear not, i'm not one of those 200 million ex-bloggers i read about on boing boing today. i've just been out of the routine, as i wake up daily all late and summery to find a family member already on the computer and another awaiting his or her turn.
also, we've had friends visiting from baltimore this week, and one day of perfectly lovely maine weather as well as one day of torrential rain which soaked our basement. our visiting friend, susan, scolded us for our dirty gutters, and i think she was right. m cleaned them today, removing all the baby trees we'd been cultivating in there.
before that, it was too hot to blog.
