Honesty Is No Excuse
I suspect I have been a putz on this blog for some time now. Heck, a putz in real life too, I imagine. Crabby, griping, bitchy, whining. Hey, that's why I put that "pissing and moaning" category over there. Here's Chigger and some funny chicken pictures to make up for it.......... Not enough, eh?....Well, I'll try to do better for the rest of the year.
Seriously, I have not meant to be a crabby stick in the mud. Or a muddy crab on a stick. Either way. This year just did not start out well. It sucked and blew chunks both ways basically and it has remained........well......challenging, shall we say. I hurt every day, all day and like a lot of people it starts to wear on you a little. I do not mean to take it out on my loyal readers and I know I could have it a hell of a lot worse.
I just wanted to say that despite everything I am still thinking up and working on new or existing projects. I am not being sucked down the black hole of despair. I work in the garden every day just about. I am back to doing at least a little clay every day. This weekend I have enjoyed every minute of the wonderful weather we have had, staying outside until I just had to come in. I added a few more feet to my rock flower bed. I got almost all the winter crops planted. I take care of my sweet chooks every day and take time to pet those that want to sit in my lap. Chigger and I have gone for many walks. She often has to wait up on me but she's patient that way. Jack and I are planning a nice 1st anniversary road trip.!! Nothing very long but it should be lotsa fun.. I'm still here, I'm still me, the giant pain in the ass you all have known for years.
Y'all gave me such wonderful words and I will get to them all! Please feel free to continue to leave them too, if you have not already. I may sprinkle some other posts in between (or not) but will take them all in order. Thanks for playing along.
