Season Opener

January 6th, 2015

When a blogger has been absent from her blog as long as I have, you expect her to come back with a divorce announcement or rehab story–some kind of major plot twist. But I don’t have a big season opener, or even an explanation for the eight-week gap between posts, except that life has been full with sweet and ordinary things. 

Thanksgiving things.

Thanksgiving arrangement

Birthday things.

Birthday shoes

Crafty things.


Cozy things.

Christmas things.

 Church things.


And this sort of thing.

Lots of that sort of thing.

It was lovely. 

And now it’s good to be back, fingertips tapping on keys. I like the sound of twenty-fifteen. The way the staccato syllables come off my tongue all crisp and new like cards dealt from a fresh deck.

I feel lucky.

    It’s like you never left! And yes, Twenty Fifteen sounds bitchin’

    I understand. Same reasons here!

    I’d noticed you were gone, but I saw your FB and Instagram so I wasn’t worried. (: Always happy to have your words, though.

    • The micro-blogging sure takes the urgency out of those urges to blog…saves you guys from a lot of the really boring, fluffy stuff, but keeps me from digging down to the deeper stuff sometimes, too.

    I enjoy reading your voice, wherever you choose to share it!

    I haven’t blogged for exactly one year and don’t see going back to it. It was mainly a travel blog and a way to share that with my mom when we were on the road for weeks at a time. Since she passed away and we are now luckily, blessedly ensconced in a winter home near our grands, FB suits me quite well for posting.

    Lovely to see you again! Look at how much your family has grown!!
    A new year of Best Wishes to you 🙂

  8. Welcome back to the blogosphere! Great pictures, especially of the cats. And I understand about the church thing. Your last post back in November was wonderful. Should have told you that!

    Judging by Christmas lists, your little and my middle have a lot in common- Pokemon, minecraft…
