A Month of Sundays

We have a saying in the South- "a month of Sundays".  It refers to a long time- such as "I haven't seen you in a month of Sundays", or "I haven't done that in a month of Sundays".  It's similar to "in a coon's age", though I'm going to be 100% honest with you... I don't know what coon's age refers to.  I'm not sure if it refers to the lifespan of a racoon (1 1/2-3 years, in the wild...if you were wondering) or if it's a racial thing.  Since I'm not sure, I try to avoid my preferred saying is "month of Sundays".

Yeah, how's that for a ramble?

Anyway, if you want to do the math on a month of Sundays, you'll quickly realize it refers to quite a while- the average month being 30 days only 4 Sundays to a month (generally. Yes, sometimes you get 5 Sundays in a month.  I don't like Math.  Just go with it).

So.  It feels like it's been a month of Sundays since I've posted here, though I see by the date that it's really only barely a realtime month.  Hm.

I've been doing a lot of reading (and playing on Facebook, but reading sounds better).  I've enjoyed crocheting some new projects, though my current one is a fun pain in the butt.  I'll be sure to post pictures once it's finally done.  God willing and the creek don't rise, that will be soon.  (You're welcome for that fun, bonus southern expression).

I've goofed off enough, time to go play on Facebook- I mean.... get back to my crochet.
