Summing it Up...

Now, that I'm way on the wrong side of sixty, I feel that being true to self is important. "I yam, what I yam." Kindness and smiles are to be given away. Women are strong. Men are more vulnerable than we believe. Husbands may come and go...but one thing I know for sure is that I will NEVAH live without a corgi or coffee in my life if I can prevent it. Come piles of dog fur or hot water!

Sunday, October 16, 2011's Autumn, and I'm jumping back in!

Greetings and Salutations dear bloggie buds...How was your summer? I've read, while lurking, and kept up with most of you. Blogger wouldn't allow me to comment many times as some sort of penance or just plain aggravation for some reason. Sorry about that. I've missed you gals.

So what's happened in our neck of the woods? Well...last weekend the North Carolina kids were here. Emmy is four and a half, and a loving older sis to lil' Liam. I saw him at five weeks, then not again until he was five months. Believe me, there are many big changes in the little fella.
I had a corgi-themed sixtieth birthday on the 9th; with corgi cake, corgi gifts and corgis underfoot at our hot dog/chili bonfire. It was great, making leaving the fifties behind not all that painful.
We sold the RV on October 3rd. Jim's driving truck again for a much better company after being home all summer getting honey-do's done. I got a small promotion at the library, gaining hours and a tad more pay.
That's our time apart pretty much in a nutshell.
Hope to jump back in once in a while and catch up.
Take care, and hugs to all.

I'm so glad you're back. I missed hearing about your travels with the Corgis. How did your hay bale gardens turn out? You look like you lost some weight in the new profile picture. So nice to see your smiling face!

Happy 60th - I have one more year - and I can't say I am thrilled.

Glad you sold the RV - that has to make things better.

And Jim being home is good too - even if for just awhile.

Love, sandie
