Taking a Tea Leave

Oh, my dear friends!  I have been absent from Blogland for a couple weeks, and I fear it will be for a few more days, yet, that I must take some leave from posting with purpose!  May has been a whirlwind of activity!!  For some reason, it always seems to be my busiest month – second only to December.  So many exciting projects on my plate – it’s all about going “full speed ahead!”

Things started to get rather busy after going to home school convention – still have to get that post written for my Constellation Academy blog!

Then, it was Mother’s Day weekend – and, the last of my posts – not at all very original in remembering “That Mom O’Mine” with mostly links to previously published reminders of our beloved maters . . . and a cup of tea . . .

Right from Mother’s Day I went barreling into the big Founder’s Day event in my hometown.

I am on the Board of Directors of the Friends of Historic Vineland who sponsor the event – and I am the program coordinator with a plethora of details to be attended to – not the least of which is overseeing the 46 tents being put up, and getting all the festival grounds in order for the historical exhibits.  Three of these exhibits I am personally responsible for, too!

And, the stage show . . .

And, finding time to eat between . . .

And, four different historical attire outfits . . .

And, then this past Sunday – in historical mourning attire – attending the re-dedication of our founder, Charles K. Landis’ grave site at the historic Siloam Cemetery . . .

And, now – this week – I’m trying to catch my house back up and preparing for my next large event, our homeschool workshop on June 2nd.  I have lots of materials to prepare . . . and . . .


Yep!  I’ve got the stuff, just need to put it all together again and mail it out by the end of next week!

I said all that to say this:  I need to take a “tea leave” from blogging until I can get my home-front demands caught up.

I’ve got lots of photos saved for quite a few posts I’m planning, and am looking forward to getting back into a cycle of regular posting once again.

I’m missing the leisure of visiting you all – and hope to be back in the game at the beginning of June!!!

Meanwhile . . . Happy Teatime this week!!

  9. I just got back from a brak and am refreshed…except for keeping up for a week with a 40 yr old son & wife can be relaxing! My you are busy! But…He does strengthen us! Sounds like worthwhile things all…but although we can do anything, not everything is for this season, so do what you know you are called to do with joy right now and trust Him with the timing for everything else!
    Love, peace and strength to you my dear friend and sister!

  10. WoW! You are a busy lady. I think its so great that you get to dress up in period clothes all the times. I hope you get all your ducks in a row and some leisurely quiet time too.
    And I think I am stealing your “keep calm and blog on” picture.

  11. Hello Kathy
    I hope once you accomplish all that needs doing, you can sit down and enjoy a cup of tea.

  12. Whew! And I thought I was busy. Enjoy your time away and rest assured we’ll all be here when you get back. 🙂

    Blessings, Debbie

  13. Why my dear, dear Miss Kathryn, you are NOT wearing a tire…

    Take the time you need because we’ll be right here waiting when you return full of stories and adventures. We’ll sit down and have some tea then.

    (And you do indeed look lovely in your historical attire.)
