What I Have Been Up To!!

It has been quite awhile since I have posted on my blog.  A lot has happen and I won't bore you with all of the details.  Job, family and simply life took over and I just could commit to blogging, not that I gave it up completely.  I enjoy reading every one's blogs.  I can learn a lot and be inspired by them, and I was.  A lot has also changed in my life and family.  We have 2 new members, to replace Orca.  Monty and Minne, brother and sister, yellow labs, who I simply adore.  I feel like I have 2 new grandchildren.  I am taking care of my mom, but that is a good thing.  I rather be the one than some stranger.  I still have not gone back to work.  Right now, me not working is best, financially, its a challenge, but in a good way.  We are living well, simply, and learning that you can get along without a lot of extra stuff.  I have been very lucky to attend an embroidery retreat, and LOVED it! I have a group of good friends that I am able to hang out with and be encouraged and have fun with.  I have time to give myself to enjoy my friends and life itself.  I have been doing a lot on thinking and contemplating, and made some positive changes that I feel really good about.  Going back to blogging is one of those.  I need to apologize to anyone I have not been honest with and I will admit that I flaked out of a exchange, due to family issues.  I am very sorry, and I hope you can forgive me.  I am not asking for pity or advice, I just needed to clear out the cobwebs, sort to speak.  Once I figure out this new blog system, I hope to post pictures of my new 9 month old pups, and to share what I have been working on.  Until then, take care, and take time to enjoy the day!
