I'm back!


Remember me?


Well, I am the one who used to post every single day.

Really, I did.

Notice the past tense?

Yep, seems like I have been a little AWOL - okay, a lot.

I have been thinking and thinking about posts.
I had all these great plans of joining the group of bloggers that post every single day for the entire month of October - but I just couldn't come up with a topic - so, once again - I chickened out.  (I thought about it last year too and didn't do it then either.) Monday, I went through all the links to bloggers that DID accept the challenge and only found about eight (out of hundreds - literally) that I thought would be of interest to me.  So, I bookmarked these sites and have been back to read the posts for the last three days.

Well, guess what - only TWO have posted every day for three days!
Why join a challenge to post for 31 days if you aren't at least make an effort to do so?  I mean last year one post that I was reading stopped at about day 17 - but had done really well up till then.  All the others completed the challenge and I still follow all of them.  Many of these blogs are taking part in the challenge again this year - but since I already follow them they weren't included in my count above.  Maybe that is one of the reasons I didn't find as many new blogs to bookmark this year is. 

Anyway, I'm rambling.

I really am ready to come back and start reconnecting to those of you that still read this blog.  I'm sure it is not as many as it used to be - and that is okay.  I mean, I sorta deserted you didn't I - I sure can't blame you if you quit reading.

So, starting tomorrow, I'll be back with a post - something that we have done around here.  I really haven't show you guys that much of the new house.  I am ready to do regular posts - probably not every day, but regularly.

Now, just to absolutely make your day, I'll leave you with a picture of our Little Miss!

Hi Five!

Isn't she getting big?

Thanks for hanging in there and I'll talk to you tomorrow!

Hugs -


P.S.  In case you are wondering - the challenge is called "31 Day Challenge"
 and here is the link to the hosting blog - she has the links to all the different categories and bloggers that are participating.  Check them out!


  1. Hopefully it finally got cooler or is the picture from the Little Miss a newer one? Our race to get everything done before winter is going great so far (knock on wood). The last offspring will graduate from high school and this house is getting way to big. So selling sounds very tempting, especially since I didn't warm up to this place in the 5 years we've been here. It warmed up again and we've had a good amount of no-rain-days. I admire people that can post every day, my life is too boring for that, even with the renovation. Have the family over for Christmas, this works great with Dan's suggestion for the 3 month time frame :)

    1. Hi Sue - no, the weather has not cooled off at all - the temps have been in the 90's all week - and the picture of Little Miss was taken yesterday. We packed her pool up last weekend - so we just put the sprinkler out and she (and her Grampe) played in the sand and water. I should have posted some of those pics! HaHa!
      I posted everyday when we were on the road full time - it was our way of keeping the kids informed on our activities.
      It's hard to "get into" a place - I have been having some issues with that myself - but we know this is where we will be for the foreseeable future, so I better just come to grips with it and make it our "home".
      We haven't had rain all week - but it's suppose to start back this weekend - yippee! We have gotten some projects done, but still have more to do to meet our Christmas deadline (and the new baby is due the 14th of December - so we will be having a lot of company then!)
      Have a great week and I hope to talk to you tomorrow! :-)
      Hugs my friend!


Rainy, Dreary Days

Well, I don't know what the weather has been like where you live but here it has been warm, overcast, and rainy.  We are having temperat...
