Sigh. Last time I stopped by here I was gearing up for vacation, and now it's already come and gone! Fortunately I got to spend it on the Cape with my sister, my brother-in-law, my niece, and their loveable black lab. We took lots of long walks, cooked and baked to our hearts content, and spent many, many hours snuggling with this little monkey (I mean, how could you not?!).
