Apologies into Thank You’s

When I saw this on FB it really got my attention.

I apologize A LOT.  So, I’m challenging myself to convert ‘I’m Sorry’ to ‘Thank You.’  I want to make the effort for an entire week.  Who knows?  It could become a habit.

It would be even more fun if some of my awesome readers (that is YOU GUYS) would try along with me!  Imagine the strange looks we’ll be getting…

The Wet Alaskan Adventure

First of all – I must apologize for the delay in my Alaskan Adventure Series. I signed up for the ship’s wifi, but after I registered and paid my fees, they did not broadcast a signal strong enough for me to connect.IMG_1320
So, this ruined my plan to report ‘live’ fun in Alaska.  However, I took notes and photos to share with y’all. It may be a couple of days because I need sleep, desperately. Then I must unpack, etc., etc., etc.  Opening the mail alone will take 1/2 a day.

Stay tuned  😉

Enjoy your Sunday!


Despite the Rumors, I Did NOT Join a Convent

As if they would take me!

So, when those of you who know me well stop laughing, I will explain.

If you didn’t notice Not Pretending (to be sane) has been silent, no worries. Consider it a little vacation for your brain.

If you did notice a disturbance in the Force, please accept SeeNoStormTroopersmy humble apology. If it makes you feel any better, I have missed y’all. So much so, that I am writing a post when I should be doing chores. Today is my only ‘day off ‘ this week. The rest of this week, through the week-end, I am working at our local Quilter’s Guild’s annual Quilt Faire.

This is a HUGE to-do for us quilter’s. And a lot of work to get it together every year. Because it is the most elegant and fun Quilt Faire EVER!  People keep telling us that and we, of course, believe them.

So… If I’m not actually working at the venue, I am home baking goodies to sell at our Country Store. A good thing I’m giving them away, since I shouldn’t eat them myself. To further prevent the ‘taste testing’ I may decide needs to be done, I baked a sugar-free cake for us to enjoy. I hope it’s big enough.

If I don’t make it to the grocery store today, it will be the only thing in the house to eat. Unless we want freezer-burned pot-pies or ‘Kid’s Cuisine’s’ that our granddaughter’s won’t even eat.

I am not even dressed yet and it’s embarrassingly close to lunchtime. However, that is not yours to worry about. In fact, if you have made it this far into possibly the most boring-est post ever, I commend you 😉

Those are my excuses reasons for not adhering to my Post A Day commitment. But, in the words of our former state Governor –

“I’ll Be Back.”
