We’re taking a little break

cowboy erik baby 2Apologies for the lack of posts on here lately, but as our regular readers know, Erik’s mom, Marguerite, has been ill for some time and as of this week she has moved into hospice care. As a result, we’re taking a break from posting for a little while. These are sad times but they are full of good memories and lots of love. And speaking of good memories –I’ve been sifting through the Knutzen family albums and thought you might like to see one of Erik’s–or should I say the Sheriff’s?– baby pictures.

  1. Deepest sympathies. It’s been wonderful to see you posting again, Mrs. Homegrown, but please do what you need to do to take care of you and your family. We’ll be here.

  2. Family is WAY more important than blogs. Wishing you both the strength to deal with difficult times.

    We’ll be here when you get back.

  3. God bless you Erik, your mother Marguerite, and all your family, as you embark together on this cyclical transitional and transformational journey. May the fair winds of Spring be at your back, Mother Nature’s 6 senses envelop you with gentle beauty and May the family love that binds you give you strength,now and for the still undiscovered future.
