Just Popping In to Say ...

... Wow have I ever fallen off of the blogging wagon lately!  It's been HOW long since my last post??  Ah well, that's what happens when you get greedy with the overtime at work and then have zip, zero, and zilch ambition on your days off no matter how many of them you have.    Honestly, I'm afraid to even open my Google Reader for fear of the number of unread posts that are going to pop out at me!

While washing my hair yesterday morning the thought dawned on me that I even missed my blog's seven-year anniversary this past July 25th.  Seven years - wow. In child years this blog should be starting second grade, in dog years it's ready for retirement!  Not that I plan on retiring it, mind you, but boy it sure has slowed down.

Anyhow, just wanted to clear out the tumbleweeds and say 'hey'!  Now to go face that Google Reader ...  Oh, and just because I don't want to do a post without a picture and shock everyone again, here's one that my cousin Amy took on our trip up to Salem, Massachusetts a couple weeks ago when I had stopped to take a picture of the figurehead of the Friendship - note that she caught my "good" side!

  1. I was thinking about you yesterday and wondered if you were taking a break and then decided that you had done just that. Sometimes life gets in the way of blogging. Overtime is nice though.

    Have a terrific day. :)

  3. I never even heard of blogging until about 3-4 years ago. You were a trail-blazer!

  4. Well, my goodness, congratulations on 7 years of blogging, that's awesome:-) I can well imagine the shock you had when you looked at your Google Reader because I just miss 2 days and it's like I've been away for a month, I swear everyone decided to do a post! lol

    Been wanting to ask you, did you taste the maple syrup yet? Hopefully it survived the trip! lol xoxo

  5. Thankfully for you, I've decided to go on hiatus for the time being, so that's one less blog you have to catch up with!

  9. What barb said!

    I can relate to no time for blogging, and its going to get worse this week as our annual fundraising event for Cystic Fibrosis Foundation approaches rapidly!

    I am glad to see you in my reader, though.

  10. It's always good when you take the time to write, but truly understand when life gets in the way.

  11. Hi, Linda! Happy 7th! It's amazing how life has a habit of hollering at us every now and then. I'm glad to see you aren't having a bout of blog guilt. I think I'm over that, too. If I post okay, and if I don't that's okay, too. Enjoy it all while you can!
    ~~~Blessings~~~
