Around my campfire

I’m back! But only temporarily for the time being.

Initially I was absent because I had been quite ill — for five weeks. As I began to recover, life began to take on some major changes ‘around my campfire’. To keep this brief and skipping a few unimportant details, we are planning a move.

With an impending move we are frequently displaced from our home while realtors show our home to prospective buyers. It’s more disruptive than you may realize — certainly more than I had realized!

The good thing is that I’m well and all is well around my campfire. We’re downsizing and have found a fabulous new place in a much smaller package. I’ll share with you some of the new digs as we get there.

For now, I’ve barely been online, but I do promise to resume my little blog in due course. Thank you for your concern, your kind notes, and especially for being patient. I look forward to sharing lots with you once again.

May you enjoy the beauties of nature, experience the calm and the exciting, and above all cherish joy in the ordinary. I’ll be doing the same — see you soon.

Oh dear. I didn’t know you’d been ill. But pleased to hear you’re on the mend.And moving house!
Best of luck with all of this.

I am so glad to see you here, Diane, and what wonderful news!
We downsized a couple of years ago, and although the actual sorting/packing, etc., was really quite stressful, and took well over 9 months to complete, it was indeed a very good decision.

I am glad to hear that you are well now, and I look forward to seeing you, whenever you come back here. Until then, I wish you all the very, very best.

I am sorry to hear that you have been ill but very pleased to know that you have recovered. I don’t envy you the move and hope that it goes smoothly.
