A Return to Writing

Iron Work

I’ve missed writing these past eighteen months. The distractions of social networks, work, and volunteering have filled my time but not fulfilled the need to write in my own voice and in my own time. I’ve dusted off the blog (aka, updated the CMS) and reminded myself where I left off. Here I am beginning again.

As I sit in my living room the sound of electric saws fills the air. SB is upstairs cutting notches in floor joists to run the plumbing for our new bathtub. The great bathroom remodel is well underway. Next to me, Miss Lola, the dog reminds me that dinner time is fast approaching.

Since I last wrote here the great kitchen remodel was completed, Zoe the cat passed away at age 17, and we took an amazing sailing trip in Hawaii for my five year work sabbatical. Maybe I will tell you more about these things in the coming months or maybe I’ll just write about the present and future. That’s the beauty of my very own blog, it is only up to me.


  1. Welcome back! :-)
