Nary a blog post for two years? That’s taking slackerdom to a new level. In my defense, I was working at a job that took a LOT of my energy. What little I had left was devoted to trying to have a life, sleeping, and trying to stay connected to people.
I no longer have that job. Through no fault of my own, my position was eliminated when my department was reorganized. I had worked so hard that my health was suffering and when they told me my job was gone, instead of feeling devastated like I thought I would, I was relieved. I’ve experienced a mixture of emotions since then, but I can’t help feeling that it was a good thing and that the next chapter of my life will be better–it already is. My dear husband told me I should take a break and no worry about looking for work right away. Dear, sweet, wise man.
But that break is about over. I am ready to go back to work now with a renewed vigor. Don’t get me wrong, I loved staying home and spending time doing the things I hadn’t had time to do. I have been knitting and weaving and reading. I’ve also been back on my torch and that makes me happy!
Since this is the holiday season, I’ve been getting busy in the kitchen too: Fudge, chocolate covered salted caramels, salted nut roll bars, peanut brittle, pseudo Almond Joy and Mounds bars, Russian Tea Cakes, and some sugar cookies.
Now let’s see if I can remember how to upload a picture. :)
