Taking a Wee Break

Everyone must take time to sit and watch the leaves turn.  ~ Elizabeth Lawrence

Good morning, dear friends. I hope this finds you well and enjoying this beautiful season ~ it moves too quickly.

Some of you may have thought that when you didn’t hear from me last week, I was ill.  Not true.  Just doing a little rethinking ~ about many things.  Such as the things I love to do, the things I need to do, and what I actually can do.  After all, I am no longer forty.  I know you have heard me say, “I no longer whirl and twirl like I once did.”  Truer words were never spoken.  

I very much enjoy writing my blog, but it does take time, as all of you know.  Cooking and trying new recipes is a total joy for me, as is our garden and reading.  Again, they all take time.  And, I am one of those strange people who enjoys keeping house and a tidy one.  Perhaps, it was all the years I worked outside our home and didn’t have the time to spend where I wanted to.

All said, I have decided to take a wee break. I want to read and enjoy your blogs and take time to make sincere comments, write notes to dear friends,  watch my stove dance, and when spring arrives, reacquaint myself with our precious garden.  I want to “sit and watch the leaves turn!”  And, when the holidays arrive, I want to sit with Mike, sip hot chocolate and enjoy Christmas music and twinkling lights.  I know you understand.  

Not to worry, I will see you “At Table” soon and we will enjoy the holidays together.  I know your blogs will be beautiful and bring me and all those who are blessed to read them,  the holiday spirit.  I hope you also will take time to “watch the leaves turn” and especially take time to enjoy all the things you love.

  1. Dear Sandra,
    A wee break is a very good thing. Enjoy yourself to the full, and we will keep the lights on for your return.

  2. Sandra, enjoy your break and take in all of the wonderful things that this time of year brings. I understand wholeheartedly how you feel. Take care, sweet friend!

  3. Sandra, I was hoping when we didn’t see your post last weekend that you were busy enjoying Autumn and all its glory. I’m glad to hear that is what you’ve been up to. I hope you have a wonderful week ahead. I really do need to tend to my house now before winter sets in – November will be here shortly and I don’t want to be caught with things still out of order. Sending you love and warm heart hugs, Bren xo

  4. Well, of course you know you will be missed. But it makes perfect sense. I don’t read or write in blogland as much as I used to and even then it takes a tremendous amount of time. Time I love — but time, nonetheless! And this is the start of the busy season. For me it is the holidays, my upcoming annual art sale, upcoming company and then the really busy holidays. It’s something different for all of us, but it does make blogging harder! Enjoy that hot chocolate and falling leaves and come by when you have a chance!
