Anyone Missing Me?

Where is Deborah?

What? Do I hear someone out there asking about me?

Actually, I've been around...just not posting lately. Do you ever just get tired and in a blue funk where you can't think of anything to write?...no inspiration to guide your hand to write something interesting? That's where I've been. There, and spending a lot of time with doctors - most recently with a chiropractor/acupuncturist.

My muse has skipped town, so until she returns to whisper sweet nothings in my ear, I believe I will post photos I have taken and OH!...IDEA! ...perhaps a give-away! Yes!...that's it! A give-away!

Tomorrow, after my doctor's appointment and hair appointment and a trip to DMV to replace my dry-cleaned driver's license, we are leaving to visit our daughter and her family in Virginia for a few days. She's expecting our grandson on June 13 - our fourth granchild. When I return, next week, I'll pick a name from comments here on this post. I suppose what I'll give away will be a surprise, as even I don't know what it will be yet! But never fear, it will be great!

I am so glad to see your post. I was wondering if you were bogged down with all the work that was going on at your house. Instead, I read that you've been having some problems. I hope you are feeling well soon. I do think a new grandchild might cheer you along.

Don't worry about your muse. I know someone with your talent will come back soon, and we'll all be here waiting.

HI Deborah!

I come by way of Donna's blog. I know how it is to run out of steam, but hopefully your time away will refresh you and give you new ideas and blogging fun will come back to you.

Congratulations on your upcoming fourth grandchild!

Hugs, Pat

Oh, my! what a mess you have going on at your house! I bet you will be glad to get done with all that! Have a wonderful time on your trip to see your daughter. And a new grandbaby! How wonderful! Don't worry 'bout the funk! Happens to us all...sometimes several times!
Take care and look forward to hearing about your trip when you return. Be safe.

Hi there! Congrats on your new grandbaby!

I'm so glad you got to post-sounds like you've been really busy & a bit down in the dumps. IT will pass & you will be back to normal in not time!

Thank you so much for inviting me to your blog for your contest. I love contests, but I hope while I am here I can give you some inspiration.

Sometimes it's so hard to just "get going". I ran away from home for a few days and now that I'm back I'm raring to go. I've got all my goodies lined up to create some new "themed wreaths".

I think you might need a mini-vacation. The pink fairy cottage is always available, except its a little chilly out there right now.

Deborah, I've just come upon your blog for the first time. Being a nana myself to 4 beautiful granchildren (3 blue, 1 pink) I can understand your excitement at the imminent arrival of grandchild #4.

I hope your visit was a happy time for you all...and you got loads of cuddles too! Grandkids have a way of giving cuddles just when they're needed...aren't they clever! (lol)

But I really wanted to tell you I think your blog is fun and I'm happy you are back because I'm going to put you down as a favorite and stop in often to check on you.

Congrats on the new GrandBaby. I can't wait until he/she is born. I love babies!
