Two weeks? Did I say a TWO week break?


My mistake.

Well, it's like this:

When you take a break from blogging you realize that there really are 24 hours in a day.

Not 2 hours.

No, a full 24 hours.

Minus sleeping time, of course.

Not that I sleep all that much.

This is what I do when I have insomnia:

This is also what I do a lot less of when I'm blogging, unfortunately.

(That raccoon bears a remarkable resemblance to me when I have insomnia, by the way. Especially  
around the eyes...)


  1. I was just wondering this morning how things were going for you, and ta-da - here you are! I pray you (we) can stay in balance between blogging and the rest of life!

  2. Hi Nancy,
    Things are going well. Yes, balance is good! I hope you are doing well too!

  3. Hi Mary,
    This is such a cute picture. And how real for me what you wrote although I am lacking in praying at all times!

  4. Oh I'm so glad you're back and Blogging. Welcome back.

    I hope you had a great holiday.

    God bless you and your family.

  5. Hi Monica,
    It's very easy for me to get distracted by the computer - I hate to say it but it's true!

  6. Hi Victor,
    Thank you :) I'm not sure how much I will be blogging though. Hopefully not TOO much!

  7. I was wondering if two weeks meant a different thing in your neck of the woods....

  8. Good to see you back, Mary!

    I've been meaning to tell you... a lot of people have found their way to my grief blog through the grief book image link in your side bar. Thank you!

    God bless you!

  9. Mary...yayyy! So good to see you have been in my thoughts frequently.

    LOVE the pic...'nuff said!

  10. Hi Mary,'s just me milking a break for all it's worth and extending it because I didn't feel like blogging;)

  11. Hi Sue,
    Oh, that's great news - I was hoping people would click on it and find it helpful! God bless you, too!

  12. Hi Theresa,
    I haven't been blogging but I've been reading your posts. I was smiling at your kitchen antics and the laundry picture you pinned! It's the same here - the laundry basket never empties ;)

    PS (I was thinking of you when I posted the picture. I knew at least one person would appreciate it...)

  13. Hi Vicky! Fiend huh? So says the woman from "down under". By the way, strange weeds you have growing there...

  14. I propose we throw a blogger welcome back party for you. BTW, we are wary of raccoons out here since they steal chickens so make sure you get another "2 week break" before you head down Southern country.

  15. Love that picture. Glad you'll still be posting.

  16. Hi Anabelle,
    I'd hold back on the party a bit longer ;) I'll take note of your "chicken" warning though!

  17. Thanks, Barb! Be posting soon (I hope?) You know what I mean ;)

  18. Thanks, Barb! Be posting soon (I hope?) You know what I mean ;)

  19. Hi Mary! Prayer is the only thing that helps when I have insomnia! I miss you! Sorry I have been such a neglectful online friend... Thankful for you and here's to hoping some day we may be able to get together and have a nice long talk with tea :)

  20. I hope and pray you are all well.

    God bless.
