It brings tears to my eyes as I think how long I have been away!
How I have missed all of my lovely friends and visitors.
I had no intention of being unplugged for so long and it has just confirmed
that we are making the right, but very difficult decision, to
cut back on our travels back east.
It has gotten to be too much .
It's interesting that I was gone for 3 1/2 weeks and it's taken me almost
exactly that long to get back up to speed.
(It's possible that I could be doing more but have
lost the motivation to try to be Super Woman
and I'd rather enjoy
making more of every experience.)
We won't be selling our Sugartree cabin but will be renting
to our niece and youngest daughter.
I have mixed feelings about that but I believe it's a good thing
and the right time.
Fly away little bird.
So, I have been planting and gardening
like a crazy plant lady.
Spending hours every day out side
trying to water, mulch, plant and arrange.
I haven't taken many pictures but will share some soon!
It takes a while to get things looking pretty and our temperatures
have been in the mid-90s.
We have been spending so much time with our kids having
cookouts, going to the movies, eating out,
birthday parties and other family celebrations!
Whew! It has been lovely so far and it seems it's just beginning.
Our singing engagements are up to at least two a week and though
it's work we find it to be great fun as well.
Not only do I say FLOWERS always FLOWERS!
I say MUSIC always MUSIC :)
I'm not sure if I ever made it clear that I'm on a quest to
know my self better and to find my true authentic self.
Anyway, I am and have begun by being more
honest with myself and others.
I want to live in a place where I am more real and free to be me.
It's not easy but worth it. I see it as a kind of refining and what
I have in the end will be more pure.
My masks have been removed.
I am so happy to be back and can hardly wait to come and visit.
I apologize to those who left comments and I never got back to you
and to those whose emails that I haven't answered yet!
I am slow but will get it done..
Thank you all so much for your patience and for coming by to visit!
Please, please do tell me what you've been doing!
I hope you're enjoying your summer so far and
that life is being kind to you.
