Long Time No See


It’s been awhile since I’ve written anything. Life did not stop, mine simply went along quietly. So, I have a few items I feel I need to address before updating.

  1. Thank you, Kris (Tangled Web), for reaching out to check on me. That was very thoughtful. *butch hug*
  2. If there is someone out there with the initials A.K. and you sent me a Facebook friend request a while back, please send me an email to identify yourself.
  3. Also, thank you to the person in Germany that is reading my posts. That’s all I know about you, but thank you.

Okay, done with the pleasantries. 🙂

I went silent a few months ago because I was emotionally drained. One of the ways I deal with things or handle emotions is by withdrawing. Apparently, according to my social worker, I do this to protect myself. Yes, writing probably could have helped me get through those emotions but then that would not be withdrawing, now would it?

I believe what drove me into that stage was the reception / treatment my partner and I received when we visited my old stomping grounds to pay our respects to my recently departed father. I’m no longer angry, sad or disillusioned. While visiting, I was reminded why I left that place and my decision to do so was reinforced. I’ll write about it someday.

WordPress obviously “updated” while I was away so this is a bit of an experiment, especially with the photos. Here are a few highlights. The Pan Am Games came to Canada earlier this summer. Hamilton, Ontario hosted the soccer matches which my gal pal and I attended. I continue to be the main cook in the house, or as I call it: cooking therapy. I stared drinking beer again so now I’m slowly working my way through Canadian beers. The kitties are all fine. I wrote a skit for a play performed at our church. We went camping a couple of times, visited some wineries. . . oh, and I became a Canadian citizen! I did my civic duty by voting for the first time in the last election, October 19th.

I’m still playing around with the new and improved WordPress but I will get on my writing hat and join the community once again.

Peace

  1. Look forward to reading some more posts. Enjoy those Canadian beers. I still can’t figure out why Canadian Bud is better than American Bud, except that Canadians really care about their beers. Cheers!

  2. Hi there, I am your German Reader. I stumbled accidentally on your blog and I really like your humor and your writing style. I wish you all the best and hope that you and your wife are well. I have never commented on any blog and I am a bit self-conscious about my writing, because English is not my mother language. Keep on writing!

  3. I’ve never drank a Canadian Bud, I’m trying to stick with ‘true’ Canadian Beers. In case you are interested in trying some, I would recommend Steam Whistle and Mill St.’s Organic Lager. Both are mighty tasty. Cheers!

  4. Thank you so much for ‘outing’ yourself, Sabine! 😉 No worries about commenting, I’m just glad to finally know you are not some troll. lol
    And btw, your writing English is just fine, a lot better than some native English speakers. Thank you again for reading my stuff and glad you enjoy it. Peace!

  5. Welcome back to the blogosphere! I too withdraw to protect myself sometimes, now I am trying to reverse some of that, and be more outgoing…let’s see if that changes things any. Keep on writing! ~MB
