    Happy new year and welcome back to the blogging world. Missed your colorful posts. No super bowl for the Patriots this year but that’s okay, we’ll be back next year . God willing another trip coming up and more shenanigans to post about.

        Girl you know I love ya. My ex coworker said to me, “now Jo, the Patriots can’t go every year . Give someone else a chance, lol” I’m going to watch and yes I’m rooting for San Francisco . I’m stunned about Kobe . I cried so much

          Oh Good Lord…Kobe. I cried as well. I lived in Los Angeles for years and he was everything…felt like You knew him. 💙

          And Jo Ann….the 49ers? Seriously? Must we always stand on opposite sides of the sports arena?!!! Go Chiefs GO!!! Mahomes all the way! 🤣❤️🤗

            Lol. I lived in Los Angeles for 10 years and yes, you felt like you knew him. He was everywhere . Yes I’m for the 49ers. Jimmy G baby, former Patriot . Although if KC wins, won’t be upset. Are you getting ready for your backpacking through the Appalachians?

              I’ve put it off but am still getting my kit together! Lots of family stuff going on…not a good time to dodge out for a while. But it’s going to happen!!! 😄

                I understand and sometimes that happens when planning a trip.

          Yeah….I did that when I took off a few months ago…wasn’t sure if I wanted to blog anymore and I really can’t remember why I cleared house! 😅Nothing bad happened though! But I seriously missed the camaraderie of so many artistic/whimsical peeps!

            Good to see you back. Just remember that you are blogging purely for yourself. If others happen along and enjoy the ride that just makes it a little bit better.

              Absolutely! Thank You, Peter! My problem was I got completely stressed out with how far behind I was getting visiting others in the blogging world. Coming here daily became stressful. I’d pared it down to just revisiting people who had visited and “liked” me but still I was hundreds of visits behind. And I didn’t want to just bop by and press “like” and run on. I was trying to really visit people and earnestly look at their posts but I only have about 20-30 minutes a day to visit my blogland friends. Everyone is seriously posting wonderful things!!! Buzzing about blogland can be like drinking a large multi-vitamin drink! Soul/laughter/love nourishing gifts abound!!! Being gone I came to realize I truly missed the camaraderie and I learn so much from being here both on my on blog and through what many of You that I follow post. So I came back having decided it’s okay to get behind and more importantly it’s fine to not try and keep up with every single post everyone is doing; to visit and take a long time doing so if I’m compelled and have the time, and mainly that if I’m in a hurry it’s really okay to bop by and solely leave a “like” as a kind of nod and hug!!! Ultimately I don’t think anyone cares! We are all grateful for whatever visits we get in any manner and everyone has much on their plates anyway as far as time is concerned and it’s probably all good!!! 🤣❤️😊

                You are absolutely right and I have felt exactly the same. I follow a relatively small number of blogs but try to read everything they post. Sometimes other things have to take priority and I then do the like and pass by. At really busy times I simply ignore everybody and get on with whatever I need to do. I am posting very little at the moment as I am busy with charity work. I’ve gone past the feeling guilty stage and take the philosophical stance that I do what I want to do, when I want to do it. I think most people will appreciate that so I shall be happy to see you whenever you are around Katy. Love and hugs to you.

                Ah Peter!!!! 🤗😄😊Love, love, LOVE this: “I’ve gone past the feeling guilty stage and take the philosophical stance that I do what I want to do, when I want to do it.” Right? Perfect. Life’s too short for silly guilt and I think everyone is just flowing and grateful for whatever comes their way! Thanks for this! You gifted a huge smile. Cheers and Rock on!!! ❤️❤️❤️

        In these days, I start my blog from 0 again. I had to organize my head, and start a new project. Lessons were learn but I had to take new steps. I will see around Katy. Cheers 🙂
