I'm Taking a Blogging Break

Thanks so much to everyone who has been emailing me and asking where I've been.

Sometimes life just gets busy, doesn't it?  This past summer has been one of the busiest I've had in a long time.  My daughter bought a  house and moved out so we spent about 8 weeks helping her to remodel it.  It was a huge job but she's all moved in and happy as can be.  She bought a German shepherd puppy and has been busy training him.  I'm so happy for her as she starts this new direction in her life, but I'm not going to lie - I miss her terribly.  We still see her a lot, but it's just not the same as having her at home.  I'm sure a lot of you can relate.  Anyway, I am enjoying not having to worry about whether or not she's going to be happy with whatever I cooked for dinner.  LOL!

Last week my beloved dog passed away.  Honestly, he was the best dog I've ever owned and I am heartbroken.  My husband bought him for my birthday 15 years ago.  When he brought him home he told me my birthday present was out in the car.  When I went out and opened the door, all I saw was a little tail sticking out from under the front seat, and it was slowly wagging back and forth.  When I pulled him out I was delighted to find the smallest, scrawniest little dachshund you ever saw.  Well, my heart just melted and from the second day we had him, Petey has slept at the bottom of the bed, snuggled against my feet.  He was my constant companion and he always went to Kentucky with us.  Every night when I worked on blog posts he would lay next to me on my front room sofa.   I miss his soft, warm body pressed up against my thigh.  His passing left a huge hole in my heart.

Louie and I are still geocaching, mostly with my parents.  We try to get out on weekends and explore new places.  I don't see that stopping any time soon.

Additionally, I've been busy with going to estate sales looking for vintage items to sell.  I'm also kept busy making bracelets that I've been selling through my Etsy shop as well.  So if you're looking for unique gift ideas, pop on over and take a look.

I've just been too busy to blog lately so I think I'm ready to take a break from it for awhile.  I'll still be visiting everyone else's blogs and leaving comments.   If anyone tries to leave a comment here, you won't be able to.  I've been getting hit with a ton of spam comments lately for some reason, so I turned off the comment section.

I may be back blogging later when things quiet down, so in the meantime, everyone have a great autumn!  Thanks for stopping by.
