Apologies for my blog having gone so quiet lately. It has become a bit like a wee ghost town with tumbleweeds breezing through. Life has just become super busy but not with anything that would be a worthy subject of a blog post – even if I could find the time to blog. However, the festive season should help me reset and I should be able to get things back on track in the new year. I am putting my blogging on a brief break but will then return with more posts about slivers of family life, travel, trips, and art. Until then, however, I wanted to wish you all Happy Holidays and send you best wishes for 2019. The thing that keeps me motivated to blog is my interaction with all you readers and bloggers, either on my blogs or on yours, so please know that I appreciate each and every one of you and have so enjoyed our online chit-chats. I look forward to more of that in the coming year.
