Since I (Mrs. Norseman) am headed back to college (online, completing my B.A. in Mathematics) in a couple of weeks, I realize that the Weekender may be the only post that gets published for a while. That’s relevant to you because that post may become more chatty. Or on very busy weeks, it may be quite spartan. Who knows? It is the ongoing effort of myself and Mr. Norseman to ensure that our blog stays old-fashioned “bloggy.” Which is really a fancy way to say, we do what we want. 😉
