Taking A Break


We've been walking past this pumpkin since Halloween. Whenever we walk by I think, this is our future, pumpkins just do it much faster than we do. It's an interesting view. 

Roger and I have been blogging here for 18 years. We love sharing our views of the world. For now we're going to take a break. Unless something truly stunning, amazing, spectacular, unusual, profound, or utterly mind-boggingly unique happens... we'll see you in 2023.  We'll keep reading your blogs and commenting. So we hope you'll keep at it, friends.

Have a wonderful holiday season and a Happy New Year! Thank you for stopping by.

  2. I'll certainly miss your blogs...especially the wonderful skies that you know so much about. We may all end up a pile of vegetation, and thus might fertilize some new growth, but oh, in the meantime...we're loving, thinking, talking, writing, walking, looking, laughing beings!

  9. Oh, no! But what of those wonderful sky photos? What of the memories of Ginsburg and Kerouac and the others? Please don't enjoy yourselves too much. Come back renewed but come back!

    1. Catalyst-- Just reading the names "Ginsburg and Kerouac" made me smile and remember why we started blogging. Thank you for your kind words. I'm sure we'll be back and hopefully renewed.

  11. Enjoy your break but know we will miss you. I, for one, am anxious to hear how the fox pee worked out as a skunk repellant.

    1. MollyTrolley-- We. haven't tried the fox pee yet. We haven't smelled the skunk in our yard for a while. They do tend to change "homes" frequently. When it returns, we will try the fox pee. I will keep you posted. Thank you for your kind words.

  12. The British actor David Niven wrote a novel called Go Slowly, Come Back Quickly. So that's what I'll say about your hiatus.

  14. You know I thought you might be going to do that. Taking a break does help you but it also makes you think about what you want to do. Sometimes I think I took too many breaks this year because my blog has become less by one. Sometimes I feel I write too much and think I should do less.
    Have a good break but do not forget to come back, we will miss you

  16. Enjoy your break. I picture you two on your walks and in your garden. Now I’ll picture you hunkered down for the holidays. All the best Robin❤️
