all caught up...

I did it!  I finally (thanks to a few sleepless night - with no thanks to Facebook games) am caught up on my blog reading!  So now that I'm all caught up with you, let's talk about me!  ha ha!  (sorry - lack of sleep induced babbling may follow.)

Today it at last feels like autumn.  Right after Mabon we had another heat wave come through and take the temps up into the mid to high 80s.  Today it is 62 and has been raining off and on (mostly on) since last night.  I love it!  I've been piddling around the house today, doing this and that and a little laundry. 


I wrote the above text late yesterday afternoon.  I planned to come back and finish off the post but ended up going to bed instead.  Reading it, I'm amazed at the difference in moods in a little over 12 hours.  I was pretty giddy yesterday (despite the dreary, wet day) and today, with the sun out and the birds singing, all I want is to crawl back in bed and hide under the covers.

What makes our moods shift so?  What makes us go from happy to sad, or vice versa, in the blink of an eye?  Things to ponder...

I had so much I wanted to share yesterday - but it is all gone from my head now.  Perhaps it will come to me later.  Right now, there is a roast in the ice box that has had my name on it for several days but kept getting interrupted and not getting to cook it up.  I'm trying a new to me recipe from The Pioneer Woman.  I'll let you know how it goes.

Hi...remember me?

So yes, I've been away.  I can't believe how long it's been since I've even been in blog-land.  Last I remember I was planning a post at the beginning of September about the month of August and what it means to me.  And here it is...almost the END of September.

There have been many things that have kept me away.  Various issues with medicines, a health issue for my mum and some just general things that aren't any excuse for neglecting my friends in blog-land.  Not that I think you all can't live without me.  ;-)      But it is hard to explain what some of you mean to me - reading about your lives and your creativity.  You help me to keep going, did you know that?  Well, it's true.

So, I'm just dropping in quickly with a few words and a few pictures to say hello, I'm still here and I'll be here.  So, hello autumn, welcome back.  And for those friends I have who live on the other side of the globe, enjoy your spring.  :-)

I've lots of catching up to do.  Take care of yourselves.


PS...don't take a single moment for granted.  that is something I'm trying to learn and remember. 

PPS...love yourself for who you are, even if you don't always like what you see in the mirror (or in the lens of a camera).
