Tag, You're It!

It would seem I've been in hiding. I never planned on being gone so long. I needed time to get through the holidays, and all that entailed. The holidays came and went. I sort of enjoyed the break, not thinking about what to blog about, what pictures to post, whether I was boring my readers to tears, blah blah blah. I kept telling myself, "next week, I'll get back to blogging". The more time that went by, the less I wanted to return. I wasn't depressed or ill, and I apologize to anyone who may have been concerned about me, thinking that was the case. I was fine. I was lazy. I am lazy. It's number 99 in my 100 Things... list. I do seriously want to thank those of you who wrote notes of concern, though. They were greatly appreciated.
I can't believe I let my one year blogiversary come and go without a post or fanfare, but I did, and that's spilled milk. I'm ready to get back in the swing of things. I've been doing a lot of quick-project knitting lately; neckwarmers, fingerless mitts, hats and such. When we get a sunny day, I'll be able to take some pictures outdoors of the things I've not already given away.
We've not had a single snow storm here in our little corner of Texas this winter, and I'm not one bit happy about it. Every blog out there has pictures of umpteen feet of snow on their lawn, and it's just not fair, I tell you. We've had one measly peasly little ice storm that came late one night and was melted by morning...not that I want ice covered roads, I don't. I want snow! I know, I know, some of you are probably thinking "take mine, please!". Just one really good snow storm, Lord, that's all I ask....well, that's all I ask that's weather related. ;-)
I'll let my re-entry be brief, as I've already commenced whining. Remind me sometime to tell you about the winter we stored a dead cat in the freezer. Ciao, for now!

Welcome back! I've missed you. Renna, I'm celebrating that there is no snow storm predicted for the next five days...lol. I do love it, however, when the driving is not bad. Looks clean and refreshing....and you can make "snow angels".

Nancy said...

Glad to see you back in blogland.

As much as I dislike snow, my area relies on the moisture it proves, so I agree that a good storm is past due.

Karen said...

Welcome back, Renna:)

I like winters that involve snow. It makes me love spring all the more;) I'm in an area in Colorado that doesn't get tons of it. But, we can always head up to the hills if we really need a 'fix.'

Now, about that cat. . .

Welcome back! It's not that I don't want you to have snow, but I'm praying for spring and warm weather. :)

I had a neighbor that once had a dead cat in her freezer. I do have to admit that she was little weird though! ;)

Glad you are back, friend!

(((((((((RENNA))))))))))

You have been missed that's for sure.

I feel your no snow pain since I live not far. It would've been a little nice to have some white around the holidays. Well, we still have about a month left of winter. Fingers crossed. ;)
