It’s finally happened. I’ve crossed the threshold of being too busy to write this blog. With the house renovations in full swing (I finally found a contractor who knows what he’s doing) and my garden taking shape (and all my time), and my art and rug hooking, and these wonderful women from Master Gardener group, and all these little towns in the Western NC mountains that need visiting….I just don’t have it in me any more to keep up with writing.
An amazing thing happened yesterday. A woman was walking up my street while I was in the garden, and she said that she purposefully walks this street to see my progress. We chatted, and she came in for ice-tea, and I know she’s going to be a good friend. We found we had so much in common, but as I waved good-bye, I realize over an hour had passed, and I needed to hurry to get through my gardening list. More to do, less time to do it, and no time to write about it.
I’m not taking the site down, and will reevaluate next year. I’m still reading your posts before I go to sleep, even if I don’t comment, and I have found that some of you are also taking some time off. So as Arnold would say, “[eventually] I’ll be back.” Enjoy the summer.
