I guess it's about time to let you all know that I haven't fallen off the face of the earth. Taking my vacation opened my eyes to how much time I can truly spend on the computer which caused me to begin pondering anew what my reasons for blogging are. Oh I love keeping in touch with my family and hearing what is happening in their lives and what they are thinking about. I also love putting my thoughts down about different things and I've grown to love the dialogue that can result from sharing one another's views. I especially love reading other blogs and their comments. It can give me much to ponder on while I go about my everyday tasks (*read routine here).
Since I've been back I have been swamped with getting 'caught up' with those routine chores. I do believe our rain has caused every weed in the universe to find it's home in our beds! I have spent many days weeding and have tons more to do. My doctor appointments have picked back up, not only for me but for my mother. Jim was home for our holiday and that always means less time on the computer and more time with him (which I love!). Laundry has been another challenge and I really don't think it should be. But, somehow, it piles up too quickly. We have had a wedding to attend, friends over for a rousing evening of Canasta and then, of course, the never ending chore of errands, and we finally did get our garden planted. Yea!!
I have had so many different thoughts chugging around in my mind that I could blog about but when I actually get ready to put it all down I am in a fog. That leads me to think that it must not have been such a momentous thought to share if it truly has fizzled and died before getting put down in print. I look at that as the Lord protecting me from opening my mouth and making a fool of myself! :) More importantly, it probably has saved you from wasting your time!
I keep popping in to visit at all of my favorite places regardless of my lack of writing. Sometimes I leave a comment but a lot of times I haven't taken the time. Thought about it and decided that someone else has probably already said it better! As I work through the use of my time I will begin blogging again, and on a regular basis. In the meantime know that I'm dropping in for my daily visit with each of you and I walk away totally blessed by my time on your 'front porch.' I can't list you all because I know that I would leave someone out but I hope you know that each of you are dear and precious to me!
