Our mail was delivered to the wrong house last week so last night the door bell rang and a neighbor girl handed us mail with a package I was not expecting.
From Sandy - she 's a darling that has read my blog for a long time now - well long in blog years. The most darling cute snowman vanilla scented soap, a strawberry needle holder, a very cute ornament - putting that away for next year, and a very very cute embroidered tea towel. Now it tickles me how Sandy knows I love strawberries. Incredibly thoughtful. I can't embroider well at all so I appreciate others careful work so much. My embroidery looks like that primitive stuff 6 year olds did 100 years or so ago. And I don't mean it to look like that. Anyway thank you so much Sandy.
Have you ever forgot a child somewhere? Or have you ever missed an appointment you knew was coming up until the moment you were supposed to leave? Or have you ever left boiled eggs on the stove until the water boiled out and the eggs exploded (now THATS a mess to clean up!)? Well I've done all these things but not those specific things lately, those are just examples of a problem. The problem is spreading myself too thin (hey I used the words myself and thin in the same sentence!) I know I have to take stock of my life right now and I know it is because I'm doing too much that I've become forgetful.
I have 500 creative lovely posts from wonderful blogs in my google reader. And tasks I was supposed to do and have completely forgotten which will bring horrible embarrassment at some point. I haven't caught up from Christmas. And things at the hive are kind of topsy turvy upside downish. I will probably continue to make fairly regular posts here. But I won't get around to reading as many blogs as normal. I hope my friends understand. I need to take a baby step backwards. I'm really missing seeing what everyone is doing. I'm sorry. And I'll catch up soon and hope that life returns to normal (whatever that is) at some point in time.
