Hello, friends.

It’s been a while, hasn’t it?

Too long, perhaps.

Maybe not long enough.

I’ve wanted to come back but the timing didn’t feel right.

Like taking those first steps into the diner you used to go to every Tuesday but haven’t been back in months and now things feel awkward. All the “how you been?”s & “where you been?”s and eye-gouging, wrist-slitting, stick-your-head-in-an-oven small talk that goes with it. Because all you really want to do is order a cup of coffee and maybe a grilled cheese samich and get on with it.

{Mmmm…. grilled cheese}

I wanted to get a swanky new design. Something different. Spiff things up. Get things organized. Come back with something NEW! SHINY! BACK WITH A BANG! Ka-POW! Give you a good reason for the absence. {“Surprise! 2-month long blog makeover!”}

But I’ve learned if you wait for everything to be “just right”, you’re just gonna keep waiting. Better to jump right in and work to get it where you want it.


HI!! Greetings & salutations.

In a nutshell, here’s a quick bulletted list to bring you up to speed:

1. I am, in fact, alive & well. Fighting the good fight right here in Brick City.

2. I missed all of you terribly. I still keep up with most everyone from my google reader. Thank you for being such an inspiration. For sharing your projects and inspirations. It made me want to return the favor.

3. I haven’t forgotten I left you hanging with the Garden Apt. kitchen. That was so unfair of me. Apologies. Pictures to come.

4. How the house is used is in flux. Rooms that were going to be one thing are now other things. That sounds cryptic & shady but I will explain. {I am not pregnant, so don’t even let “nursery” flash across your frontal lobe. This house is enough to raise (or raze, depending on my mood & level of frustration).}

5. Blogging may have ceased but projects didn’t. Lets just say, it’s been a productive 2 months.

In fact, from my current vantage point, it’s like looking into the past –

8:20pm 3Jan11Those with a kick-butt temporal lobe may remember how the living room used to look and realize things are a changing. Finally.

So that’s it. I’m back. It’s going to be a slow rolling start before we get into our 5-day/week routine but eventually we’ll get there. As long as I’ve got you to keep me company. A change gonna come. Oh yes it will.

    Hooray! I’m so happy you’re back! And you know, I don’t think we need five posts a week if it’s what keeps you sane. Do what makes you happiest, and I’m sure we’ll still be here.

  2. I am so glad you are back. I was beginning to worry. I love yur blof and you have such a great new way of doing the mundane. As Callista said.. do what you feel like.. we don’t need 5 posts a week.. just pop in now and then and let us know what you are doing .
    Take care
