What to Say??

     I will be on an enforced vacation from the internet for a while, not because I want to be but because priority dictates.  I have bills to pay and unfortunately having a place to live, something to drive, and food to eat trumps having cable television and the internet for the moment.  So I am cleaning up loose ends, answering comments, reading blogs, and writing this.  I might have been able to come up with something truly inspired and creative today for this prompt at the BAR like some magnificent story that would you begging for more.  Unfortunately, I got nothing!  Instead, I choose to tell it like it is. 

      What will I be doing instead you wonder?  I have several plans to keep myself busy.  I plan to play my keyboard, bake bread and goodies, and continue to knit the blanket I have been working on forever.  Someday I might just get it done too! Watch me!  I have several books I would like to read that I have been putting off for a while…and well rest assured I can always find something to keep myself occupied with from running my kids here to there and everywhere to organizing and compiling my never ending pile of recipes!   So I bid you adieu, au revoir, until we meet again.  I will be back before you even begin to miss me!

    1. Vinitha, I never realized how many things there were to do. It is awful easy to ignore that to do list zoned out in the blogging world. Thanks for stopping by and for your sweet comments! ♥

    1. JoJo, the real life stuff never gets totally done because there is always more where that came from. Thanks for stopping by and for your sweet comments! ♥

  8. Sorry you're going through such tough times, Kathy. :( The upside is, you certainly will get caught up on many things. There are a few dozen unread books, multiple chores, etc. waiting for me. ☺ I will definitely miss you and your wonderful scribblings.

    1. Debbie, I know! I very rarely treat myself to a good book these days. Now that I am reading one, I am reluctant to tear myself away to write my own lackluster scribblings. Oh well. I will get back to it. Thanks for stopping by and for your sweet comments! ♥

    1. vishalbheeroo, I have been wrestling with the thought of whether I should continue writing or hang it up. Hopefully with time off I will figure that out. So far, I haven't really got to the point where I want to delete the blog. It may still have some use for me. Thanks for stopping by and for your encouraging comments. ♥

  16. I am a bit late, so you have probably unplugged by now. I hope you find joy in what your offline life has in store for the break!

    1. Andrea, that is so sweet. I think the break has done me good. I think I have discovered I am just not an everyday blogger anymore. I don't think I have it in me...but you never know when something worth reading will spew forth. Thanks for stopping by and for your sweet comments! ♥

    1. Shilpa, I did. It was something of a relief. I did a lot of things that I haven't made time for in a while like knit, bake bread, and play my keyboard. It was great! Thanks for stopping by and for your sweet comments! ♥
