Yes, We're Still Here

  Dear Beautiful Friends,

I know we are not 'supposed' to apologize in blogland when we don't post -- for, as we all know, blogging is supposed to be with that sense of no obligation.

But I do want to apologize for the fact that I have not been around much of late. And to tell you  I miss you and I miss writing here. The little part-time job I do with hubby at nights takes more out of me and my time than I imagined it could.

I'll tell you quick, although we had snow (again) the other day, we are now blossoming full tilt in the Spring department. Catkins are bursting forth on trees and grass greened as the snow melted. Not to mention the birds, who seem beside themselves with the whole business of finding mates, settling new territory, and generally getting settled on the home-keeping front from their long journeys north.  It's been fun to see hear the place all astir with their life and song.

Hopefully it won't be too long before I get back to posting more regularly. But until I feel more on top of things........ just know it is well with my soul and we're missing you all.

Now, I wish you beauty for the moment and grace for the journey, as it seems we all need that in abundance more days than others. I'm grateful for all the gifts that show up in the most unexpected places!

With hugs,

That's me being happy, a little reflective on my b*irthday a few weeks ago!


  1. That it is well with your soul is the MAIN thing....We (I) will be here when you are able to update us on your reading, writing ideas, and other items - big and small.

    No worries :)

  2. oh that's so good to hear!
    I missed you and hoped all was well with you.
    Live, Laugh, Love,~ Lucy~

  3. Stopping by to say "hi"! I'm happy whenever you post and always enjoy reading your blog.

    Have a great week (hopefully with no snow!).


  4. Just popped by to say hello. I always enjoy reading your blog. Sometimes life just gets in the way of posting; I'm having that problem myself lately. I'm getting ready to move in a couple of weeks and between that and work, I don't have as much time or energy to blog as I would like. But things will settle down again, I'm sure. :)

  5. though its not very apparent yet it happens that your readers unconsciously wait for your next post.
    waiting for your experiences about the books you read meanwhile.

  6. You look rather reflective on your birthday. We're not supposed to apologize? Oh good, I won't then as I've been gone a lot, too. It's spring. Life. Sigh.

    Looking forward to your thoughts on another day...

  7. Take time for yourself, Brenda. It's lovely to see you when you are here.

  8. Hi Brenda, I know what you mean, I haven't been posting as much as lately myself or commenting like I used to. Physically I had a few weeks there where the pain was just too distracting. Now that I am feeling better I am trying to build up my writing enthusiasm again! :) I hope you have a good day ahead. I love your gracious and beautiful blog so much. Delisa :)

  9. Would love to hear about all them ideas you are bursting to write about. Hopefully it will be soon.
    I know them jobs can take a lot out of your day. And even other changes in ones life can take some adjusting to ones schedule.I
