As much as I love a clean house, I'm pretty lazy about cleaning it.  Recently, I've reduced my chores to keeping the counter tops clean (which I do pretty well) and the clean laundry put away (which I don't do well).  I have to disassociate myself pretty hard from the gritty feeling under my feet as I walk through the house.  My parents came to visit a few weeks ago and I didn't even clean out the fridge.  I just moved the food around little to scrub the  stickier spots.

Dinner, you might imagine, has gone the same way.  Thank goodness its summer, so that "Hot dogs for dinner!" again sounds almost legit.  Just so you don't loose complete faith in me, know that I have 6 jars of strawberry preserve made from family-picked strawberries in the freezer.  The preserves are amazing over ice cream, buttermilk biscuits, and truth be told, straight off the spoon.

When my parents were here we drove around to the Michigan side of Lake Michigan and climbed the Warren Dunes.  Then we continued north to Mackinac Island.  There are no cars on the island, so people and things travel by bike or horse drawn carriage.  It was beautiful.

Keeping up with blog has obviously been on the back burner for a while.  I hope to get back to posting, although I feel a little like I've lost my voice.  I've been reading a LOT lately and hope to share some good reads soon.

  1. I love this post, Megan! We've been eating our fair share of hot dogs, too -- and there are no homemade preserves of any kind in my freezer :)
