Grace Full

With the Fourth of July holiday last week, I took the opportunity to take a week off, take it easy and take stock.

For that, I am super, super grateful.

I had family over. Took in a few movies and went to a museum I hadn't been to before. Bought some beads (but who knows how long it will take for them to become something wearable).

Made a really great Corn Tomato and Avocado side salad that is ultra easy, was a huge hit, and I highly recommend for your next barbecue.

Toward the end, to prolong that vacation-y feel, I bought a few books.

Overall, a lot of things to be thankful for.

Thankful for the ability to take time off, to reflect and to explore.

To stay up late and wake up even later.

And spend time alone and with folks that I love.

Halfway through the year, I'm reigniting those resolutions from January to have more fun and spend more time listening to the people I like spending time with.

And to write and share a few delightful things along the way.

Wake Up Call

After a year or so of complaining that some of my favorite bloggers have given up the regular posting of their usual level of amusing content, I was hit by the realization that I'm guilty of the same thing.

The difference being, they've ostensibly got a collection of followers who are impacted - like I was - by their absence.

Here, not so much.

But I've missed blogging, so here we are, once again.

Pardon the mess as I dust things off, remove the cobwebs, and generally get back into the swing of things.

It's been a while, but I think it's good to be back.
