A Year Has Passed…

December 29, 2014

…since I have posted here. The last thing I wrote, Autumn of 2013, was about the sad loss of our sweet girl-dog. Not long after that life got wild. As it does. A quick glimpse into the happenings:

  1. One of my dearest friends moved.
  2. My age-abundant mom moved in with us.
  3. My responsibilities at work tripled.
  4. Another one of my dearest friends moved.
  5. My sister and I went to Europe for a missions trip + vacation.
  6. We completely remodeled our kitchen (a 3 week project that took over 3 months).
  7. My responsibilities at work tripled again.
  8. I averaged 80 hours a week at work for most of October through December.

I suppose I could blame my absence and lack of doing a thing I love on the above and more (especially numbers 2, 3, 7, and 8), but since I know people whose lives are more hectic and stressful than mine, I really have no excuse. I do have good blogging matter, however. My New Year’s resolution is to make good use of it…

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you!

It was one of those years...

A Blogging Award for Me? Thanks! I’m Passing It On…

March 28, 2011


Versatile Blogger Award

OK so good news for me: I received the Versatile Blogger Award by my new blogger friend Julie Moore. Check out Julie’s blog at juliemooreonlife. The award is proudly displayed on the sidebar on the right. Since accepting I must tell you seven things about myself and send the award to other bloggers that I love to read. I realize some of you may not have time to give this award out to others or write another blog about yourself but its the thought that counts. And I think you’re all great!

So here goes….

7 things about me

  1. I love to cook and try out new recipes, especially if they are quick and easy.
  2. I play the violin, guitar, piano and want to learn the mandolin.
  3. I read about a half-dozen books at a time.
  4. I have a dog that follows me around like, well, a dog.
  5. I love road trips.
  6. I’m married to my best friend.
  7. God willing, I am six years away from retirement and will blog to my heart’s content. 🙂

And the award goes to…… (in no particular order):

The blogs are some of my favorites and I hope you’ll check them out, you won’t be sorry you did.
