Where Did it All Go?


“It’s not enough to be busy, so are the ants. The question is, what are we busy about?”   – Henry David Thoreau

The time, I mean.  I seriously have no idea where it went.  I came here on November 3 of 2012 to dish on my marriage to my Englishman thinking I’d get back a few days later with some serious topics and now it’s…well…now!

I’ve been rather busy with family, friends, and work.  Right after The Tour Guide got here I picked up a new client that provided a lot of work on top of my full time job and then I picked up another.  So that’s all going really well and I’ve gotten their books all caught up and I’m on top of that.

Oh, and friends!  TTG and I have met some really cool people through my sister and her fiance.  They don’t care about religious affiliations.  We just get together, have a few drinks, throw darts, play cornhole and frisbee and have a really great time.  Sometimes religion or politics comes up and there’s pretty diverse viewpoints on it.  But we can talk about it, live and let live, and walk away with nobody upset, angry or with their feelings hurt.  And the best part is I’ve gotten to hang out with my sister as my friend.  She’s pretty darned cool and so is her fiance.

Then Christmas rolled around and I decided that I’d make Christmas stockings and fill them with homemade goodies.  So I got busy making homemade hot chocolate mix, marshmallows, peppermint bark. I also made homemade breads, biscotti,pork and poultry rubs, and anything else I could find on Pinterest to give as gifts.

Whew!  There!  The holidays are over and things are finally getting back to normal around here, whatever that is.

Anyway I’ve got ideas and starts to several posts that I’ll be getting up in the next few days or weeks or whatever. I have gotten around to reading quite a few of your posts, though, so I’ve been keeping up with you guys.  I’ve missed blogging but I’ve been so busy having a life and enjoying it I haven’t had time to stop long enough to finish a post.

Here’s to living! Cheers!
