To Blog or Not to Blog

That is the question.  It has been so long since I was here I have no idea how all this new stuff works. I wish they would leave things alone.  Such a long time since I blogged I just did not know if I wanted to start back up or not. So I went back a few years and started reading all my old posts and all the comments and visited a few of my friends blogs and found myself completely engrossed with what everyone was doing and what was going on in their lives that I realized how very much I had missed everyone.

 For the past two years I have slowly closed myself off to a lot of things without even knowing that I was doing that. So this morning, without even knowing what I was going to say here I am. 

We have been so busy this summer doing things outside but about a week ago the weather turned hot once again and it has stopped us from finishing the outside projects. If I do not get out early in the mornings then it has to wait till the next morning. 

I planted a lot of veggies this year up along the east side of my house hoping that the summer would not kill everything and the east side shade would give them a safe haven. Silly me, the temps are climbing to 110 yesterday and it was 106 by 11:00 am and that was east sun!  Everything is dying!  Oh well. I think I will just rely on the produce department at Wal-mart. 

We are about half finished with the deck around the pool so we are at least getting a start. I hope to have it finished mid September as I plan on having a big family reunion here.  I would like to have it the end of August but not sure if I will make that.

As for me, today I am getting my hair spiked and putting in a dark red streak. I am thinking about going to college and taking beginning Art and possible pottery. My older brother PE is always encouraging me to try my hand at painting so I think I might give it a try. He teaches here at the University from time to time so I need to learn a little bit about art and then maybe one semester take one of his classes.... That would be such fun.

There are a few other things in the works out here right now but I will save them for another post. Just felt that I needed to jump back upon the blog wagon this morning. Hope some of you are still here and still wanting to be my friend..

Have a happy day...... and if you are in the hot box as Oklahoma seems to be............ stay cool! 



  1. Good to see you blogging again... I have missed that Proverbs 31 woman who so shared her life and struggles and her whole heart. I wish they would stop changing things too ! Life never stops changing...TRYING to keep it from GLORY to GLORY for HIS GLORY. Welcome back my Friend.

  2. Morning Dear,
    And welcome back, its nice to see your post up on my reader today...I think you did fine to have been away from it so long.
    It hasn't been a good year for gardens especially if there is a drought and a ban on watering as there is here...The heat and humidity are so tiring and depressing, bring on Fall is what I cry....
    Love you, girl
    Mama Bear

  3. Hi Denise
    I so identify. It will take a bump just to get started. I too have crawled into my quiet place to rest. Here and there I try to poke out my head from this shell of an old tortoise.
    I was thinking about you tonight and glad to hear you.

  4. Aw, I'm sorry about your garden! It sounds like you are really staying busy and enjoying the summer. That is great you are going to take some courses. Blessings ~

  5. Denise, there has been a lack of rain across Canada and the US this year. In the last month we've had a bit of rain but before that, it was June. Not a drop in July that I can recall. Crops were dying in the fields and when we were to the US, we saw fields where everything was wiped out.

    So glad to see you back blogging. I miss a lot of people on here as well.
