It's WHEN???

OCTOBER?  You mean the time I said I'd be back blogging?

Not to worry, Loved Ones, I have a brilliant excuse. 

I thought I was adding flavoring to my coffee. Meanwhile they days went by so pleasantly!

Okay, mostly, all the things that made me take a break kept making me put the brakes on blogging.  But since I was last here I have finished a book!

Started a novella

By 'started' I mean I came up with funny titles for each chapter... can I leave the rest as a fill in the blank write your own story kind of thing?

Been keeping busy on Facebook

Got all new appliances in  my kitchen

I WISH! One day will people look back and laugh at how all appliances in the 2000s were boring old stainless steel color?

Bought lots of junk

$8  for the dotted grease jar with lid! 

Had major computer issues 

It took a team of techs a week to get it squared away! Then they double charged me and am still haggling about that!

Also I injured my knee, haven't moved around as well and gained weight.

Yes, I would... if I wore it as a hat! 

So don't think I was goofing off!

Hoping things will be settled down now that most of this is behind me and I can get back into the blogosphere. Will be making an effort to catch up reading this week!


  1. Congrats on the books! I soooo want a dotted grease jar for my bacon fat! Oh, and I wouldn't mind a cowboy for Christmas either:@)

  2. Helen, I have missed make me laugh. So happy you have written a book. I will have to look for it. Take care . xoxo,Susie

  3. Hello- Annie! I have been missing you but it looks like you have been one busy girl. I miss your wacky sense of humor! xo Diana

  4. A new book? How delicious! You're really been busy! I sure hope you heal up's no fun to not be able to move about like you want. I haven't exercised this summer and sure can tell it! Happy to have you back! I've missed you my friend!

  5. Wow, that doesn't sound like much of a break. You were busy the whole time!!! Glad to have you back. (The comment about the wedding dress as a hat made me snort.)

  6. I've sort of fallen off the writing my blog train also. And commenting and visiting other blogs? Forget about it! I am trying to make a conscious effort to do better.

  7. You definitely weren't having a respite. This sounds like a super busy, but productive couple of months for you. I hope the knee is on the mend.

  8. Missed you, but this post partially makes up for it. You took a break AND wrote a BOOK? Wow, maybe I don't understand the meaning of break.

  9. Thanks y'all. Back out reading blogs was so much fun - will do more of it this weekend. T
