For those of you who stopped by just for my usual Working the Shows Wednesday feature, I apologize. I don't have an appropriate post made up for today.
As many of you know, our family suffered a major loss this past week and with the funeral and family coming in from out of town, I have not been able to keep up with this activity for the last few days. Nor did I want to. My thoughts and heart were elsewhere. Thank you to all who have contacted me both here and in other ways and offered support.
Today, we began to return to our routine activities. Our family went home. Our boarder returned. I finally got around to some housecleaning and laundry which had piled up. I even have orders to get out. The grocery list needs to be dealt with and we have an upcoming contest this weekend to judge on Friday and Saturday. Tomorrow, I want to sleep in and simply get some rest. I will get back into my regular blogging routine. I will participate in my normal forums. Orders will start getting painted. It will be a while until we really feel like doing these things but we will go through those motions for now and slowly we will get back somewhere toward "normal." It all takes time.
So, for tonight, I am simply taking some time. I'll be back to chat with y'all tomorrow.
