Catching Up Again!

It seems like I'm always trying to catch up with things. It's not that I don't think about my blog, just that sometimes it's just difficult to take the time to post and get other things done. I'm sure you all know what I mean. You've got to admire those ladies that manage a job, kids, a hobby, Facebook and posting to one or more blogs. Yet those superwomen do exist and I do envy them. Well maybe I was even one of them a long time ago, though Facebook and blogs didn't exist then, you had to take the time to call or write everyone to let them know what was going on. You have to admire just how handy blogs and social networks on keeping people updated.

As for me, life has consisted of physio, doctor appointments, finishing the 1 year baby scrapbook for my new niece Charlotte (isn't she cute!) born on September 2nd, as well as 3 mini-scrapbooks I thought her parents might like to have to send to her grandparents. I finally got all that out in the mail priority post yesterday. combined with a special surprise which I hope will elicit a huge smile from both her parents and a birthday present for her dad, Eli. I just hope that the package makes it to Alaska by Wednesday as promised. I must say that it was nice of the UPS store owner to let me know that priority mail would be about 1/3 the price of UPS which was not cheap at over $90 in shipping charges!

Today I met this nice lady who started a meetup group for Empty Nesters between 50 and 60. We had a great time and found quite a few things in common, some of them, I must say rather bizarre! After some time at the Boone County main library, I ran another couple of errands, mainly I went to Hobby Lobby where they were having a 50% off sale on wall hangings. With all the extra walls in our new house, I did want to grab a couple of things! After spending a little time talking with my neighbor about this and that, I came on home to try and update my blog before going out again, this time to a Relaxation party at one of my new neighbor's home.

I think I am finally coming to grips with the idea that this may be my forever home. I honestly don't think I've felt this way since 1992 or 3 when I lived in a beautiful town in Quebec, south of Montreal called Mont Saint-Hillaire (see picture). BTW my guest room is 90% ready, so people, it's time to invite yourselves up or down here, as the case may be, for a visit!

Cutest baby! I always think she's kidding when you advertise your guestroom, but I'm starting to think you're not.

Charlotte is adorable. I'm glad you are loving your new home and town. Isn't Meet Up a great way to meet new friends?

Charlotte IS pretty. I know you feel like you're always catchin up, so let me add to your plate :) DOn't you think it's time to post some of your gorgeous projects>?!?!?!?!?!? Hmmm??? Get to craftin lady, I wanna see some stuff I can copy :)

M-C said...

Geesh thanks Summer, LOL! But you are right, I haven't shared much crafting stuff lately!

One of my problems is that most of my projects are made as presents! So I can't post them until the person gets it. I promise that from now on, I'll post more craft projects. Be it cards, knitting, scrapbook pages, recipes cards or even something I've painted, crafty or home improvement!

Catching up is good! I enjoy reading and rereading about your days and weeks...your comings and goings...makes me feel like we're chatting.
