Sorry I have been absent for too long. There were some health issues, a general funk, camera issues, and going in circles when I was moving.
I even forgot to celebrate my 4th "blogaversary" (October 5, 2008) but did just look back to remind myself of where I've been & where things are going. I keep repeating to myself "of mice & men" refering to the idea that plans are made to be changed. The house project is moving slowly. The porch should be done by next week & I promise to post when things look different enought to celebrate.
Part of me is wishing I was in Houston but it just didn't work this year. During all the general crazies of Oct. I did have a great few days in Dallas/Ft Worth. I got in too-short visits with friends and Ashley & I had a great time seeing & being inspired by the Dale Chihuly exhibit at the Dallas Arboretum. It is beautiful and if you're in north Texas before the end of the year, check it out.
