I’m Kerry. Remember me?
It’s been awhile . . .
I’ve been wanting to get back here, to say hello, to say everything is fine.
But what a busy summer it’s been!
Nothing hugely dramatic. Just so busy.
Doctor appointments, for my mother, my husband, me. Some regularly scheduled, some emergency.
Veterinarian appointments, for our many cats. Some regularly scheduled, some emergency.
We cleaned out my mother’s house. We took care of her possessions, the ones she didn’t take with her to the assisted living facility, and maintained her yard. We sold the house.
We had two enormous garage sales. We sold stuff on Craigslist. My fantasy is to be able to park a car in the garage come winter, for the first time ever.
We had visitors come to stay. We made a trip to Boston.
We participated in a craft show.
And we did our own yard and house chores and summer projects. Don built a fire pit the new pictures windows will be installed in two rooms soon.
I spend at least two or three days a week with my mom.
All summer long, in the early mornings, I have had time to either weave or write a blog post. I’ve chosen the former.
In the evenings, I have had time to either write a blog post or sit by the lake and have a quiet drink with Don. I’ve chosen the latter.
For the last couple weeks, things have been a little less hectic, a tiny bit less scheduled.
I’ve thought several times about writing here.
But like all good, healthy habits, once one stops, it’s very difficult to start again.
And that’s all this post is. A chance to start again. To say hi. And to commit to being back soon.
