I must admit....

I must admit that blogging has been on the back burner for sometime now for me. I must also admit that I miss it. Although I am trying to read and keep up with your blogs, I have not been communicating much with my blogging friends. I didn't realize how much I enjoy your company...so I am going to try to do better. I am going to try to carve out time for my blog no matter how busy my schedule may be.

One thing I have failed to do in my busyness is to thank Patti for the wonderful gift that I received in the mail sometime back. She hosted a give-a-way at her blog and I was the lucky winner. She sent me this lovely book and a sweet note.



Thank you so much, Patti. This package in my mailbox brightened my day! Patti has a lovely blog that is very uplifting. If you have a few minutes you should pop in and visit her.

I hope everyone is having a wonderful fall season. In the next few days I will try to share some of our fall happenings here in North Carolina!

Carla, you are most welcome. I'm glad the gift brightened your day.

I really have been missing you! I had been wondering about you, wondering how you were adjusting to this new season of life with your daughter in college.

I haven't been blogging quite as much these past couple weeks, as I have several fruit trees that need to be harvested and preserved (some canned, some dried). However, I know from past experience that I do not want to fully disengage from blogging ever again. I started blogging in 2006, but from Febrary 2009 to May 2010, I was completely out of blogland...I even deleted my blog. That was for a season, as I worked through the pain of fertility issues and adoption roadblocks, but now that I'm back, I hope to never fully leave again. I love my blog friends, plus I enjoy the creative outlet that comes from writing a post. I guess you have realized that same thing!!

Blessings to you.

Love,
Patti

I was wondering where you had gotten off to! I can't wait to hear what you have been up to. Hope it was some fun stuff atleast.

I wasn't blogging much these past couple of weeks but I realized it's cos I now use my Ipad a lot and I don't blog on there, typing is not so good on there.
We are finally enjoying cool/fall weather here in TX :)

Lovely! So glad to hear from you again. I've missed you, Carla. xoxo

You have been missed! Hope you'll have a little more free time for blogging in the near future.

I haven't had much time for blogging at all in the past few weeks. I'm struggling to keep up with my responsibilities at work and home and am too exhausted at night to even think about sitting at the computer. I miss the interaction, but there are only so many hours in the day.

You'll have to update us on your daughters soon.

It's sometimes hard to prioritize it but we must do what we must do. How sweet of you to thank Patti on here though!

It's good to hear from you again! Sometimes life does get too busy for blogging. I will have to check out Patti's blog.

If only there were more hours in the day! If so, I would be blogging more then I do as well. Some times we must put blogging on the backburner but we know our blogging friends will be there when we return....

Blogging is fun and informative but it does take a lot of time. Life is so busy for everyone, that sometimes we just can't fit everything in to a hectic schedule. I have to slow down and catch my breath sometimes and try to figure out what is most important and what needs my attention first.
I hope you can pace yourself so that you continue to enjoy blogging.---------Shannon

I've really missed your blogs and hearing from you! Hope all is well! I'm finding it difficult to blog as often as I once did and even harder to read all the wonderful blogs.

Thanks for your comments on my post; we had a wonderful trip and saw some awesome beauty! Hope you have a great week!

I know the feeling! I was really slow this past summer, and I missed it a lot. Now I'm trying to get back into it, but I have a lot of reading to do!
The book looks interesting!
