You know you haven't been blogging enough when your mom calls you up to check in because she hasn't had any updates to read.  (Hi Mom!)  I've wanted to blog but find that my ability to put words down is inversly proportionate to the amount of snot in my sinuses.  More snot = fewer words.

While it is nothing serious we've got a case of the sniffles here in the Goat household.  Baby goat brought it into the house and since Thursday we've been laying low.  Mr. Goat and I both worked half days to keep baby goat home and help us get well.

This combined with a few poor nights sleep and a sense of quiet that comes from a powerful experience (see my FMSC post) we've been holed up physically and mentally. 

But as is so true of illnesses, we are starting to reemerge and blog posts are beginning to percolate in my head.   I am thinking through some things for this week and hope to catch up with some back Christmas posts too so I hope you will consider coming back in a day or two and seeing what there is to see. 

If though, you need some excellent recent blog posts to read consider these from blogs both long read and just found.

Peace Garden Mama - the gifts that emilie gave
Nachfolge - Faith, Prayer and Drudgery
Off Camera with Trish Van Pilsum - 38 Pallets
The Extraordinary Ordinary - Hi, My name is Heather

My mom does that too, and it still cracks me up. I also forget that she reads my blog and therefore doesn't need some things that have been going on repeated.

I hope you all feel better soon. Did the brownies help?

Liz, I'm so glad you mentioned my post as a filler while you fully recover. I have a feeling your next post is going to be a great read, what with all of that ruminating you've been doing in recovery. Get well. The house is always upside down when mama is ill.

Liz, I'm been in the same boat since I got home last Sunday! I love the "more snot = less words" sentiment. I'm still under the weather and wondering whwen this is going to go away! Hope you are feeling better. . .
