away for the weekend: January 2014

hello again!

Hello, again!
I never really intended for my break to last this long
- which got me thinking about the "break" I took from Facebook more than a year ago...

- and returning to my blog was beginning to feel like Now or Never

Well then, Now it is (for blogging, anyway - Facebook, yeah, probably not)

All is well.
I wish I could say that I accomplished something fantastic or amazing during my time away,
but - well - I can't
(and I didn't)

So - to get back into the swing of things, I am joining Nancy at A Rural Journal for a little random fun.

1) First off - thanks so much to those of you who sent me messages during my break! I can't begin to tell you how much it means to me. You're the reason that "never" won't work for me!
I missed you!

2) Chicago-daughter moved back to Boston over the holidays.
Definitely not hating that!

3) My switch to public transportation did not go well.
- abhor, detest, despise, lothe...
- all accurate words to describe the way I felt about my daily
hurry-up-and-wait, freezing-suffocating, squashed, noisy, motion-sickness experience that took me to and from work each day. Time to rejoin the crowded highway.

4) I love winter
- but I'm glad it's not any longer than it is -

5) The other day I was on Pinterest and actually thought "ho hum..."

That's it for me this week - have a wonderful weekend!
