Do you ever have times when you just don't feel like taking the time to post your thoughts and happenings, but have so much to talk about? And then, don't you have those other times when you want to "chat" but don't have anything worth sharing? Well, lately I'm in the first group. I've got so many pictures, events and sewing finishes that I would love to share, but my time is so limited lately and it takes me so long to blog that I just lose interest easily. I'm an easily distracted person anyway.
But, I did want to say "hello" to all my friends out there and to let you know that even though I didn't respond to every comment I've received recently on my posts, I loved each one! I often wonder why I blog and why I even mess with it, but when all those lovely comments float through, I remember! I love hearing from you all and I'm really enjoying the friendships I'm building slowly with each of you. The encouragement you all send is so uplifting and so helpful when I'm feeling down or uncertain about things. I had a strangely depressing week last week and still don't know why! At one point I found myself quarreling with my husband (over nothing, of course) and then running into my study, slamming the door, and falling into a crying heap on the futon. It wasn't too long and he was sitting beside me, asking me what was wrong - BEATS ME!!!! (no, my husband doesn't beat me) ha ha!
While he sat there, he told me he loved me and would always love me - isn't that amazing how just those words, said with integrity and meaning, can change your spirit so quickly!! Sometimes all we need is a hug and a bit of encouragement - something to keep us going. It must've been what I needed, because my spirits changed drastically after that. Perhaps there was a bit of premenopausal hormone fluctuation in those tears and depression, too.
community dogs, Buddy and Dixie.
I just adore these dogs! It's nice being able to love on them, give them treats and play with them, and then they can go home!! Kinda like being a gramma, I guess.
Anyway, I'm having a better week despite having to work on the construction project in this cold weather. Speaking of, it's after 8:00 and I'm supposed to be at the jobsite!!! Better get going or the boss is going to be mad!
I'll be back!
