Profound Thought~ Flux

Well friends, I'm still alive and back in Boston again.  Sorry for the infrequent posts, but I'm in flux now (in a good way).  Sometimes life just gets in the way.....

There are a couple of reasons for the flux. Part of the reason is we have decided to sell our "big" house and downsize; that means painting, cleaning and purging.  We will be building a smaller cottage here in New England and buying a pied-a-terre in FL.  Based on the anticipated craziness, I'm hoping to post at least every 4 days or so--but it may be sort of spazmodic. 

The other reason for the flux was the blogging thing.  I love so many things about it, but it is a time eater.  For the time being, I need to put more of my energy to use in a more practical way.  In the end, I decided that I'm not quite ready to give up the blogging yet--I don't feel that its run its course. Afterall, I'll need some time for fun!

Thanks to all of you for following and being friends~


  1. I was wondering what happened to you. Oh No, you can't give up your when & what you can. yup, it looks like you have a lot of work ahead of you, but it sounds exciting. Good Luck!

  2. Paula, while I completely understand the time factor...I would so miss your creativity and smile and friendship were you to stop completely. I would love to walk with you through the building of the cottage and see what you do with it. I hope you will stay would be deeply missed!

  3. Paula, I'm gald that you are o.k. and starting a new adventure. Moving, downsizing and decorating does takes a lot of our energy.
    Whenever you post, I'll read it!

  4. What exciting changes are in store for you! From time to time, I lobby for a smaller place, but I'm afraid that what I'll end up is an Airstream trailer and I don't think I'm ready for that. I'll look forward to any post you can manage.

  5. Man, I have moved like a zillion times and I don't envy you! Fun to get to have 2 homes though.
    Enjoy and post when you can.

  6. Blogging is quite a time eater, but so worth it for the sense of community with like-minded women. Good luck with the house stuff. We'll all be here waiting for you :)

    Be Well,


  7. I, for one, hope that you do not give up blogging entirely. The new direction you are headed sounds marvelous. Two smaller homes, one with wonderful weather, is better than a big home anyday!

  8. Don't stop blogging! Keep us posted when you can and I'd love to see more of your fashion illustrations. I loved your Oscar post.

  9. Linda~thanks for the encouragement! I will...
    Pam~thanks gf--have you downsized recently?
    Ofelia~so glad you will keep checking in!
    TerrI~You always make me laugh! An airstream...we have thought about that...not for long tho-just dont picture myself as the type!
    Brett~Moved alot? It is a pain, but I have been in this house for 25 years in the town I grew up in. I'm ready for a change!
    Doreen~thanks and so is a great community!
    DonnA~lets hope it all works out--thanks!
    Jill~I'll still be sketching~~thanks!

  10. Take your time and blog when it's fun! We'll still be here!
    Florida sounds lovely! What big (and fun) and important decisions!

  11. Yup, blogging takes time - but it's your life, do what you want and need to do! We'll be here when you get back!

  12. Firstly: congrats on downsizing in a good way!
    Secondly, I can totally relate to the need for blogger boundaries and blogger moderations. Right now for me, it's a full-time job that pays like an internship. I need to put a time frame on it, but it's so hard too! I'm glad you are not quitting just slowing the pace.

    Good luck with preparing your home for sale.

    By the way, that color of the flower in your photo is a color I can wear :-).
