My latest rug project !
I am back ! Since my last post I have been busy living and enjoying each moment - or at least trying to appreciate each moment. For the most part I have been at our camp which does not have cable or Internet service - which I am thankful for except I do miss the world of blogging. I could go to a Starbucks but with the high price of gas and with this incredibly beautiful weather I really can't bring myself to lift myself out of the hammock, put down my latest read and drive 20 minutes so I can write a post which might not get read so... I stay in the hammock reading.
I must be honest and tell you that I have suffered a bit from blogging withdrawal. It is similar to caffeine withdrawal. My fingers itch to type, my mind keeps forming a post, I wonder what my blogging friends are doing. I feel guilty that I have no way to let people know that I am still alive and kicking. I worry that my loyal followers might abandon me. I understand that in order to increase my readership I should post on a regular basis. And then I do a reality check.
I was put on this planet to live each day to the fullest, to have adventures, and to celebrate life. I could easily spend hours typing my thoughts and opinions of which I have many but I can not allow myself to be addicted to blogging. My time spent at our camp forced me to break the addiction. I love blogging but I have to keep its importance in my life in perspective. There is a lot of living to be done.
The reality is I haven't had much time to lay in my hammock. I have been gardening, walking, swimming, volunteering, coloring, rug hooking, cooking, catching my first fish, taking a boating class, visiting with friends, preparing for our son's wedding in less than one month, celebrating the wonderful news that we are going to be grandparents :) and making plans to leave next week for a few days with my husband so we can celebrate our thirty years of marriage. As soon as I finish this post I am off to experiment with making dill pickles from the 12 pounds of cukes I just picked from our garden. My days are full and I sleep well at night. Life is good.
There is nothing quite like a new box of crayons.
Fishing the day away !
