Didn't know that I was a magician did you? Neither did my telephone friends... But yes, I have a fabulous disappearing act that I decided to just spring on everyone with no warning. My own unique demonstration excludes those within driving distance. They had an inkling that I was up to some kind of trick but really couldn't begin to estimate the amazing illusion I was creating via the communicationwaves. So, without further adieu.. Voila! I'm back. Are you impressed or just annoyed? I've really always hated the stage so I guess this is as far as I'll take my act. :)
I'd like to wrap some brain and some words around what's really been going on so here goes.. First, my glitchy computer made it very difficult to upload pictures making it such a slow process that I dreaded the thought of attempting it each day. Life was already engaged in its 'summer with teens and family and friends' hyperspeed thing and then I think (no, know) that it had everything to do with my love of home. I really enjoy blogging about home. I hadn't been home much so when I was, I needed to savor it and be 'in the moment'. And when I stepped away from here for more than a couple of weeks and thought about popping back, so much had transpired that I felt a bit crippled with a blank screen in front of me.
I want to thank the sweet friends that reached into my dead space with caring words while I was away. I didn't see any of them until this morning (unless you e-mailed me and I admit to only sporadically checking my e-mail!) and am blessed. I remember giving a friend a hard time years ago, when she spoke of her 'blog friends' and saying, "seriously? Friends? It's a computer..." Silly me. Bloggers are people and I've found some of the biggest hearts in these real friends. Forgive me. Now I have a few phone calls to make...
** I thought that I would quickly freshen up my look since I'm back. Apparently I no longer have enough storage space for my photos or something like that which is going to require some research... I really hope you like the header as is, because I don't think I'm up for the challenge quite yet!
