Hello Again!

"I have not ceased being fearful, but I have ceased to let fear control me.

I have accepted fear as a part of life, specifically the fear of change and

the fear of the unknown, and I have gone ahead,

despite the pounding in my heart that says:  'turn back'."

-Erica Jong

Hello my friend!

I have been gone for a bit, 

life has been extremely hectic.

Making time for frivolous things

hasn't been on the agenda for a while.

To sum it all up, work has been unbearably

busy, I've averaged aprox 50 hours a week 

for the past three weeks.  Mom and Sis 

dropped in and stayed with me for three days

while visiting my aunt, who has cancer.  

She said "I'm not doing chemo, I'm 81 and lived

a long wonderful life ....  God's in control now."

She's been a force in my life!    Sis is still doing

her chemo rounds, and things are 'progressing nicely'

so her doctor says.   Mom has bucked up under the

pressure of this entire situation.  Me, I'm happy to be

on the other side of being overly busy and overly tired.

Tomorrow will be the first opportunity I will have to 

sleep in past 5am and I am looking forward to it!

So .... what have you been up to lately ??


  1. Yay! You're back and I couldn't be happier that you are.

    Just being a man of leisure. An old friend came to visit and that was nice. Other people will soon be on the move. Our lawn is green, and the wild critters want their daily ration of peanuts, seeds and bread.

    You on the other hand are looking as marvelous and exotic as ever.

    1. Thanks John! Welcome Spring in your neck of the woods! We're just about to summer .... and really warm temps! Is it fall yet?? hahaha HUGS! ~Gal
